SepiaSaturday, April 25, 2015

There were several themes one could pick up on, I went with hairdos: some were mine, some were others, but I'm sure we all thought we were the cat's meow at the time.......

I will start with my beautiful Mom, I can still remember her at her vanity combing out her hair, I thought her so beautiful, she is still good looking at 85!  I hope I carry her gene. (That's me with the short bob hairstyle).


A mother of a friend, not sure of the date.








Above is my pretty stern looking great grandmother with her hair in a very tight bun!


My lovely great Aunt Marguerite around the '20's.





My best friend and I had just stepped out of the beauty salon in early 1960's, can't you tell?  My hair was backcombed and teased to within an inch of its life!!!  But we thought we were adorable!!  The first of many "selfies".





Later on, I thought a perm was in order, so here I am with my son, David, and my daughter, Christina around 1975.  It was all the rave, an Afro perm!!



Last, but not least, my Dad donned a wig for this shot with my sister, Dianne and me in early 1970's.





Well, I hope you enjoyed a walk down hairdo memory lane with me, for more hairy scary photos, go to  www.sepiasaturday.blogspot.com, bye for now.  Rosie

  1. Hello Rosie, I really did enjoy a walk down memory lane with you. I think we sported almost the same hairstyles, including the short bob and the afro (although God knows why as I already had/have enough curls!)

  2. My late sister-in-law had a curly perm when I first met her, and I thought it was natural, until she grew it out :-) Yours looks good.

  3. Oh yes - the bubble hairdos, shellacked to a fare-thee-well to keep every hair in place - even in a hurricane! Didn't have one quite that poofed, but I did backcomb a bit. And I tried the curly curly 'do, too. It was okay, but I grew it out before long. Yours looked good though.

  4. You look quite different with different hairdos, but I think the picture of you above the picture of your father looks a lot like him.

  5. Oh yes, I had that curly perm too. I thought it was great because I didn't have to mess with curlers and hairdryers. Love your dad's wig!

  6. I thought your great grandmother looked like she was trying not to laugh, not stern. I had an actual afro and it's pictured this week.

  7. I really enjoyed this. I agree that your mother is beautiful. I really liked perms as it added body to my straight boring hair! I still had a perm in the early 2000s until a colleague stirred me up about how unfashionable it was!

  8. I'm with Kristin...I don't think your g-grandmother looks stern! I think she looks just perfect!

  9. I bet our grea grandmothers would have loved to have perms and the like, but a bun was just about all that was available to them (mine was the same). Aren’t we lucky that we can be so trendy these days. I enjoyed all your pictures.

  11. Great pictures, and surely very fond memories for you. My favorite of the group is the first one, with all their different expressions, it's a so typical kind of photo with children!

  12. Great hair selections. I had one of those afro styles too. We can blame Barbra Streisand for that. I think your current hair style is very attractive!

  13. I really like the difference a few years made between the Coiffed selfie and the permed
    afro. Cool/
