Hair-itage and Memery

Hey - I'm still alive out here. I know, I've been absent. But, one of my most faithful and loyal and FANTASICALLY WONDERFUL blogger buddies tagged me a while ago, bringing me out of my blogging slump. So, a big THANK YOU to Kila, aka momto3cubs, for giving me an assignment and luring me out from under my rock. Love ya, babe.

Okay - here goes!


1.Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
2.Go to the 6th Folder, then pick the 6th picture in that folder.
3.Post that picture on your blog and the story that goes along with the picture.
4.Tag 6 other peoples that you know or don’t know to do the same thing and leave a comment on their blog or an e-mail letting them know you chose them.
Yeah, I'm gonna save you all some grief and NOT tag. You're welcome.

So, I did this, and had to laugh when I saw the photo...I received this quite a long time ago. In fact, those of you who have followed The Story will truly appreciate this. Back when I first discovered part of my heritage, I had an identity crisis. One of my blogger friends felt my pain and wanted to help me embrace my ethnicity, so she sent me this composite:
Can you guess the celebrity? Yeah - it made me feel better. And I feel HORRIBLY ROTTEN b/c I can't remember which of my blogger friends did this for me...and I'm running out of time to post, so I have no way to go back through archives and research. So, if it was YOU...many thanks! I remember how this picture lifted my spirits and made me identify less with the local illegal aliens.

AS a woman of "some" color...I am rediscovering my hair. I have kept it straight for so long, but it is naturally curly. I realize that the blessings of my heritage include hair that grows quickly, has fantastic body, and yet can be easily manipulated. So, which hair do you like best on your Tiggerlane? This is how I've been wearing it some lately - natural curl, with some gel thrown in. This was taken late, on my cell phone - not the best quality, but you get the idea: This is with a little bit of curl...a bit of body...and yeah, I took this last night after I had rubbed off most of my makeup. You're welcome. But you're supposed to be looking at the HAIR. And yeah, doesn't my nose look big here? Weird.
And this is how I've worn it over the last few years:
I've been having multiple-personality hair lately - wearing it all three ways several times in one week.

Think I should just keep changing it up?

Hey, Salma, you look gorgeous however you wear your hair, but I imagine the no-fuss look is easiest. Go with what suits your mood of the day.

Spellbound said...

You look the same age as your daughter, i swear. I lived my whole childhood in the shadow of a sister with naturally curly hair while mine was straight as a stick. My mother kept taking me for frizzy perms. It wasn't until I got away from home that I finally realized I looked better with my hair straight and fairly long. I think you look good in all the pics but until you have to spend big bucks on maintenance like I do now, go as natural as you like.

Big noses are a sign of intelligence. I have that on the authority of my father from whom I inherited mine. Hugs

Pamela said...

wow... I don't remember seeing that before. You have the prettier eyes, by the way.

richies said...

Glad to see you in the blog world again. Thanks for signing up with Relay For Life.

I like the straight one. For some reason, people who have curly hair somehow have the best hair when it's straight. It has plenty of body.

Memphis Steve said...

For whatever it's worth, I think the first and last photos are the best look for you. You can go either way and it looks good.

That's sort of the benefit of being a hottie, isn't it?

Kila said...

Awww, shucks, I'm blushing!

Ditto what Pamela said--your eyes are prettier.

I like hair with some curl, but yours looks great straight, too. You can't go wrong either way!

Junebug said...

Either way!

Moi said...

I'm so glad you kept the pic and that it helped you!! However you wear your hair, you're beautiful!! And that is part of the fun of curly/wavy hair-you can change it so easily!

Kaytabug said...

Hey pretty lady! That first pic is so cool!!!The resemblance is just wow! I really like the curly look, but I think you should style it however you feel like wearing it because all 3 looks are fab!! Keep changing it up.

Tiggerlane said...

Desert Songbird - you're right, curly is easiest...I like mood-shifting hair.

Spellbound - that's good to know...about my nose! And why is it that whatever hair we have, we want the opposite? Odd.

Pamela - you are SO SWEET.

richies - I'm getting back, slowly but surely. And our band may be playing at the relay!

anglophilefootballfanatic - thank you, and you're right, I do have a lot of body. And volume.

M@ - actually, triplets.

Memphis Steve - thank you for the flattery! That middle photo was NO MAKEUP...and

Kila - thank you! And thank you for the blogging inspiration...I needed it!

Junebug - indecision, eh?

Moi - so it was YOU! Thank you again! I'm a chameleon, I think.

Kaytabug - I think that's what I'll do - I've worn it all three ways this week. Must be my multiple personalities, shining thru.

Kobi said...

I like it straight ... since you are asking for our opinion. =P

Tiggerlane said...

Kobi - thanks! I wore it that way today - just for you!
