Hair shots

This is a typical updo for me. When my hair is up like that I get the most questions about it.

Top 3 questions/sample conversations:


    The curious(TC) :           How long does that take?

    Me:                                 Excuse me?

    TC:                                 That(swirly point towards my head). That looks like it would take forever.

    Me:                                 No not really.  

    TC:                                 So how long does it take?

    Me:                                 Umm if I had to guess probably about 10 minutes.

    TC:                                 Nahhh.  No way that’s done in 10 minutes.

    Me:                                 You mean the style?

    TC:                                 Yeah the swirly thing.

    Me:                                 Yep. It’s pulled back into a ponytail and the ends are wrapped around

                                           and tucked in.

   RS:                                  Pause( wherein I assume they’re trying to picture what I just said).

   RS:                                  Well it sure is different/interesting/pretty/cool/complicated looking/nice

   Me:                                  Uhh thanks. Are you done with that basket?  🙂


Random Stranger(RS):    Does your neck hurt?

Me:                                  Huh?

RS:                                  Does your neck hurt you know with all of that….

Me:                                 Uh no I’m fine thank you 🙂

RS:                                  …umm I like it.

Me:                                  Thanks 🙂


The doubter(TD):          Is that all your hair?

Me:                                Yep

TD:                                 I mean like the whole thing.

Me:                                 Si :).

TD:                                 Even the inside part

Me:                                 🙂 Uh huh

TD:                                 Mkay(squint, side eye)?         

Me:                                 Umm, where can I find the SD cards?    

TD:                                 At the front(still squinting and side eyeing)

Me:                                 Thanks.                                         

For the record I feel that if you want to know you should ask 🙂

    Alright, I'd be one of THOSE people. Though I wouldn't ask you, but would wonder in my head on how you do your hair. This should be counted lightly, because my hair expertise goes as far as "ponytail!"
