jennyjet – Many years ago I would get up in the dark and use the bathroom to get dressed for work. Didn’t want to wake up the family by turning on the light. Well, I got to work one day thinking that I had put hairspray on my hair, but in stead I must had used the Lysol. Well, I guess my hair was clean smelling instead!
Darcy Robb – My husband has been bald for 30+ years. A while back, he acquired a very nice hairclipper so that he can keep his “rim” neat and tidy. I asked him numerous times to use it on my hair but he was scared he’d ruin it. Finally, he gathered up his courage and clipped my hair, almost to the scalp all around, and left it longer on top. He did a WONDERFUL job that first time, and I pester him now on a regular basis to clip my hair! Love my new hairstylist!!
Paul Clément – My most memorable hair story involves my daughter. I was preparing for my organization’s annual rally which involves military style events and parades. To be sure, I needed a haircut and my daughter volunteered for the job. She usually did fine work so I agreed. She proceeded to trim. Then, when almost done she noticed one part towards the front was not quite right so she took one short swipe with the electric razor to correct it and suddenly said: ”Whoops!” She then grabbed the mirror and as she placed it in front of me said: ”Sorry dad! I goofed!” In her haste, before fixing that part that was not quite right, she had forgotten to put on the adjustment head on the razor which ended up making that swipe as close to my scalp as is possible. I was now bald, or close to it, at that very spot. There was little choice but to live with it or make the rest the same, which, as group commander having to look my best on parade to lead by example was really a no-brainer. So, I spent the weekend as the cool, bald CO with the sunburnt head! Funny, yes! Pleasant, not as much!
Ray Ayala – My neighbor is a former beautician. Last week she cut my hair in my back yard. After we were done, there was a lot of chirping and commotion with the birds. I looked out and saw they were using my hair to build a nest. I guess that is kind of like the bird version of having a down coat -a bird’s nest with human hair.
OSCAR LOUBRIEL – I was out partying with my roommates a few years back on a sunday night and we went to a few clubs, and we really partyed hard. Needless to say I got back to the apartment and fell asleep on the couch. My roomies Thought it would be funny if they shave a huge bald patch in the back of my head that night. I got up in the morning to go to work the next morning and didn’t know about my hair dilemma until I was at work and a Colleague made it known to me. Hahahah hahahah. I was thoroughly embarrassed. I had to rush out of work on my lunch break and get to a nearby barbershop. Moral of the story is, “DON’T GO OUT DRINKING ON A SUNDAY NIGHT”……
Merm123 – During my childhood, my twin brother and I were always teased about the afro hair we had and I hated it so much. One day I had my oldest sister try to iron it on an ironing board for me which made it even more of a mess. LOL Naturally as I got older the curls softened but now I straighten my hair everyday.
Jill Whitten – My brother and I went ‘head to head’ in a fundraising challenge after our mom passed away. We signed up to shave our heads for the No Hair Selfie campaign, first one to reach their goal of $1000 won the challenge. On the day before the shave I was only at $700 – I put the word out to some of my favorite customers and by lunchtime I had exceeded more than double my goal. My heart was bursting with gratitude and awe. Between my brother and I we raised over $3500 for cancer research and spent a very chilly Alberta February with no hair!
Chelsea Riordan – One time I was lighting a candle and my hair was longer at the time, I was fooling around with my best friend, telling a joke or something and I was not quite paying attention to the position of the lighter flame. POOF! My front bang went up in FLAMES! I was slapping my head like I had a bees nest in my brain! What I didn’t know is that human hair turns to like crunchy and burnt, like a charred piece of toast. It was terrible, I looked a fool for the better part of 3 months it took for my hair to grow. Note to self and other… Fire Is Hot… Fire Burns. LOL
Maggie Whetstone – I am a licensed cosmetologist. When I was in hair school a lady in her late 50s came in for a hair cut and I was up next. I am sure that still to this day she wishes that her timing wouldnt have synced with mine. She had a very short hairstyle and it was my first time cutting around the ear. I destroyed her poor hair so bad that I paid for her haircut out of my own pocket. Luckily I learned from that but that was the worse cut I still have ever done.
Karen T – My hair story is about the time I cut my little sister’s hair. 👭I was 5 and she was 4. But we were serious about it. I did just the way Mommy would cut our hair. I put the towel around her shoulders, combed her hair straight, held it and snipped💇 away. I was almost done when we got “caught!” I got the worst of it of course. I was strictly warned never to touch scissors to anyone’s hair again! Then I overheard my Mom telling my Aunt that I did a pretty good job cutting my sister’s hair! Hey! Then why did I get punished!?😦 I just laugh about it now.😄
Karen Galashan – Every time I look in the mirror, there seems to be more and more Grey. One of the grandkids pointed it out the other day, so I told them it was not grey, it was starting to grow very light blond. They asked their mum when she came in when hers would go natural blond, and explained to her what I had said, she could hardly do a thing for laughing. You really got to love family at times!
Barbara Knighton – Well many years ago, when I was in high school, in the 70’s, I went to the local beauty shop to get my hair cut, I think the beautician and I had a mis-communication, she cut my hair way to short. I cried all the way home. I made my mom go buy me a wig and I wore it for about 6 months. I still get sick to my stomach when I go to get a hair cut.
Diane Lane – I decided to cut my hair for my high school senior ball. I never cut my hair in seventeen years, so it went below my waist. I decided to cut into a Dorothy Hamill bob. Almost 3 feet of hair was going in less than twenty minutes. My only regret is that I should of told my mom before I did it. You should of seen the look on her face when I came home lol.
Christina Hughes – It was late one and i had a candle burning in my room on my nightstand. I needed to plug in my phone charger however the outlet was behind the nightstand, so without even thinking about the candle i leaned over to plug it in. Before i new it the hairspary in my hair caught fire and i endes yp with very singed hair and had to go for an emergency teip ro my hairdresser who had a good laigh
dolfanatl – Here yesterday, gone today. I am going through the process of male pattern baldness. Luckily, I don’t care about it and I don’t let it bother me.
77giggles – I remember one time my bangs were really annoying the heck out of me by hanging in my face when I was keypunching at work. I went and borrowed some scissors, and went into the bathroom to trim them. I am right-handed, so when I went to use my left hand, my bangs were ok on one side of my forehead, but when I used the scissors in my left hand, I tilted my hand, and that side of bangs went up on an angle. I have never cut my bangs again.
Sylvia – I’ve always felt my hair was like a toddler; some days well behaved and charming and other days unruly with a tantrum pending. But I made an effort to take good care of my hair and often have been told it is my best feature. Perhaps I value my hair too much and I discovered how true this is by the unselfish act of a 6 year old. Lindsey is a beautiful little girl with the most thick and glorious brunette locks you have ever seen. Her mom is a beautician and every day Lindsey would arrive French braided, curled or pony tailed to perfection. Everyone who met Lindsey complimented her on her gorgeous hair but Lindsey seemed totally unaffected by all this praise. Then one day she appeared with a short bob and we were all surprised until we learned Lindsey had been growing out her hair to cut and donate to “Locks of Love”. It seems her teenage cousin had leukemia and had lost her hair during chemo and Lindsey wanted to do something to help others with the same situation. Well, I was totally humbled by this dear girl’s generous act and realized that what’s in your heart is much more important than what’s on your head.
Barbara Comeaux – When I was in Jr High I had my hair frosted, like Jon Bon Jovi. One weekend I decided to add some temporary purple color that was supposed to wash out, unless you strip the color! I spent the rest of the school year with Grape colored hair!
roxysmom87 – My hair is so coarse and curly, I can’t find anyone I trust to do anything with it. Years ago, I asked an older beautician to feather my hair, so it wouldn’t be so bushy.. When she was done, I cried my eyes put, because she butchered it. I haven’t let anyone do more than trim 1/4″ an inch now. My dad is a retired barber, and he used to use his thinning shears, to keep my hair from bushing out. Later on, I learned not to brush my hair when it was dry. That was what caused it to look like a big bush on my head. Now, my hair is down my back and I do all the trimming myself.
Natalie Hayes – I started getting grey hair in high school. I had a really good friend of mine in one of my classes and for some reason that particular teacher always used the projector so she would have the lights turned off, that for me has always been a trigger to fall asleep. So while I would be sleeping with my head down on my desk my friend would yank out whatever grey hairs she could see (with my permission of course). I use to always think she was doing me such a huge favor … Yeah I’m pretty much all grey now..
