A few weeks ago I hosted a ghd giveaway where I asked you to tell me your hair raising tales for the chance to win the Deluxe Scarlet Collection Set. Your stories had me laughing for days – seriously folks, don’t attempt to highlight your own hair and always remember that a fringe can’t be cut off.
Picking my favourite was a hard task as all the entries were so heart (and hair) wrenching, and there were many deserving winners who I felt really needed the prize to soothe their souls. Clearly the memories of a bad hair day are everlasting. But there could only be one, and that’s…
“I remember the day my mam blow dried my fringe. Year 6, end of the year, with a fringe you could fit your foot through most likely. Believe it or not there was no hair spray involved, just a small dollop of mousse, and Christ did that mousse go a long way! I look back and think ‘why did I do this ‘coke can fringe?’ but at the time, I was the ‘fittest’ girl in the class; all the girls touched it and all the boys wanted to get off with me. Best day of my life.”
I love Jennifer’s story. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? The Coke Can Fringe (TM) was the look du jour in the mid-late 90s and those who could master the perfect loop were universally revered. If Jennifer went to my school I would want her to be my BFF – she’s weathered the storm of a truly terrible hair do and can now see the funny side, which is why she’s my winner. Well done Jennifer!
Thanks to everyone who shared their hair raising tales – I now consider you all my spirit sisters. Let us go forth with our glossy manes, hair history behind us.
