Please tell me this is a joke. I'd hate to see you chop off your lovely hair (unless you really really wanted it)

LOL I almost had a heart failure when i read the desc and the person who posted it, but I am guessing its a joke. You said age appropriate style and we ALL KNOW you are not about doing what everyone else does:p

Spidermom! You nearly killed me with that thread title!! :rant:
Hehe, and I did believe it for a couple of secs - but.... naaaah.. can't be real! :suspect: "age appropriate style"? No way you would write that for real^^

Good one, though :lol:

The title of this thread had me worried for a second, though.

I saw "Finally age appropriate" and I said .YEAH RIGHT!Ive read enough posts to know Spidermom would never say that.

How did you make it look shoulder length?Can you wear it out without it looking obvious?

Isilme
April 24th, 2008, 12:58 PM
nah, you didn't do this, it doesn't seem like you:P I also believe in the fake bob and if soeone knows how to do it, please share:)

Actually, with that length spidermom would probably still be considered an age-inappropriate long-hair by those people who subscribe to that theory (all that gorgeous looking hair just has to be unsuitable, right?). :p

And one off-topic remark I just have to make:
birdiefu, yours is most probably the cutest hair-related avatar ever!!!!

Spidermom, I for one am so glad to see that you chopped. Honestly, I thought your hair was getting too long. We middle-aged gals truly do need to act our age. Just a hint though...I think it's still too long.

Yeah, I wasn't going to say anything, but now that you've said it, I agree. Long hair is so un-lady like on those over 40. Or is it 20? I can never remember. :p

Spidermom and Ole Gray Mare, you both owe me a new keyboard. I snerked while drinking at Spidermom's 'age-appropriate' comment, and again at OGM's reply.

Please to have new laptop now, thanks :D

Good job tucking the long ends under though, Spidermom! Very convincing.

Wow I wasnt sure for 1 second but when I saw the hair tie I knew what was going on ^^

Hm..I should really try that style one day..:D

Congratulations! You have proven that you can let go, you have an independent spirit, you have grown up, you don't want to look like a young girl, you have gotten over high school, you are not a hippie/fundamentalist mormon. You have made the right decision. You have shown that you are a mature, realistic and mature woman who has decided to age with grace.
(okay this is a poor imitation of Old Gray Mare but I couldn't resist...)

...And it's about time, too!!!! Goodness knows, at my age I've been wearing inappropriate hair for way too long..... !!!!!

Maybe you will have inspired me to do what should be done? NOT!

It's good to see you're finally acting your age.
And the way you're ends are so perfectly curled under...,
the curling iron industry must be celebrating! One back to the fold (under).

Good job! (fooling us, that is).

I studied and studied that picture when I first started reading this thread. I simply could not believe it and wondered right off if you were using a technique I had seen where you tie the hair up underneath. And the 'age appropriate' comment somehow did not ring true.

Still I must admit, I had a teeny, tiny heart palpitation for the first few seconds. You almost got me. Shame on you! Twenty lashes with a wet noodle!

Really? I thought it was all month!

You had me with the thread title, but as soon as I saw that ribbon and your thing about the "age appropriate style" I KNEW you had rolled it up.

Come out of hiding, Spidermom!

Hi, o.k., you're all onto me. I was careful to not say I cut it, which would have been a lie.

I do the style a little differently than shown in the link above. I comb the hair as straight and smooth down my back as I can. Once I get the ribbon tied into place near the bottom of my length, I pin the hair down at the back of my neck with one hand so it will stay smooth back there as I lift the length up behind my head with the other hand. Then I spread out the ribbon over a long hair stick, wind the bottom length of hair around and around it, then roll-roll-roll the hair stick and ribbon to the nape of my neck, bring the ribbon ends up around my head, and tie at the top like a hair-band. Then I pull out the hair stick and use it under the surface to adjust any place that the hair is "off".

I really enjoyed wearing this style this morning. It felt like wearing my hair down without it going all over the place and getting caught in everything. Then I went outside into the wind and that was the end of that. But it was fun while it lasted, and I will definitely be working on this style and wearing it out and about.
