teenmewithhairOkay, so yes, I am going to share this.  But mainly because I want to determine if I need to trek backward to the used to be, or journey on to the unknown. 

So yeah, over there…that’s me.  About 14 (EEP!) years ago.  My mother was kind enough to scan this and send it to me.  I buried it in some folder here on my work computer, and hadn’t thought about it since.  

I am now cleaning up said work computer, and rediscovered this nugget from my past. Hmm.  

I want my hair back! I’ve already discussed this desire with a friend (who also is returning his tresses to the long locks of our youth) and I really, really think I want to do this.  But I have questions:

  • Is this going to be professional enough?
  • Is the length too long for me to properly care for now?
  • How about the color?  I really dig that strawberry blonde.
  • Can a 38-year-old pull off the same hairstyle that she had when she was 24?

Okay, peoples, what say you?  I need some feedback on this one.

    I am a bonafide professional and I have waist-length red hair.

    Um, so, what am I supposed to be telling you?

    Hey cutie. Long hair, short hair doesn’t matter. CLEAN hair, now that’s the ticket! You’ve always taken care to look professional at work, ( and look good anywhere else!) so I don’t see the problem. Personally, I’ve always loved looooonnnngggg hair. I just wish Ronda could stand to grow it out. Love to you and Mike.

    Ha. Go for it, dude!

    I love the picture. And your long hair. I think you should go for it!!!! Besides, if you don’t like it I know a wonderful cosmetologist! (LOL) Also, you, my dear, are only 35 and can definitely pull it off! I love you!

    Hmmm….I remember this look…fondly. Very fondly. (Hi, Mike!) It might come as no surprise that I dig the long hair – and the color, too. But unless you’re going to be buying some icky extensions, you’re not going to shock anyone. Grow it out and let them get used to it.

    I’d make a comment about needing a lie down or a cool shower, but that would be rude. So I shan’t.

    Bri – Oh wow! That totally makes sense! You rock, girl.Thanks!

    James – JAMES! You’re on here now! YAY! And aw, THANKS!! 🙂 We miss you guys. Give Ronda my love and keep some for yourself.

    Duckie – Sweet! What are you going to do to yours?

    Missi – Hey, thanks! I love that picture, and that apartment ROCKED. It was such a party palace…sometimes I wish we could have kept it a bit longer than we did. And as far as the hair…aw yeah! Thanks for letting me use your laptop to show this post to Jay. She is going to do such a wonderful job on the hair.

    Nick – 😀 Oh, Nick…okay, I can’t wipe this big grin off my face. Is it getting warm in here….

    Thank you all for letting me know what you think. I love you all. Oh, and for the record: Jayme is coloring my hair this Saturday. We’re going to do a blonde/red combo. Soon as I get it done, I’ll post an update.

    Thanks again!

    Oh. My. God. I remember that apartment. I remember the depraved things that happened in that apartment that I can best be categorized as drunken debauchery.

  9. Fossie says:

    WHAT?! Wesley, what is this “debauchery” of which you speak? I can’t recall any…uh, er um, oh, wait…continuation of that statement would only further serve to validate your description of those days… 😀

  10. Wes says:

    I seem to recall a couch that was used quite heavily for activities other than lounging…but that may have mostly been by me. Something about Enigma in the background and moans wrapping themselves around the chimney stalk and wafting to the loft bedroom above. That same bedroomw where I nearly fathered a child with a woman of questionable mental stability. To say nothing of all of the gender-bending flirtations and liplocks among the household and guests. BTW, you are a great kisser! Tee-hee!

    And that, my dear, is trip down Debauchery Lane. If you can’t remember how to get there, just look for that little old black lady, Ethel Louise, sitting on the front porch with that cast iron skillet ready to whomp up on somebody while she lectures us from the Gospel of Ethel.

    Wow. I forgot how long that was. Yeah, wow.
