I’m tried pretty much everything I’ve wanted with my hair. I turned my head into a Simon game and didn’t even realize it until a random stranger pointed it out. I was told my hairstyles were “a start on the road to Hell” by my hyper-religious mom, but she didn’t stop me. But I never tried a pompadour. Probably because, if I ever started down that path, I would not rest until I had gone full on Ruby Rhod. Nobody should ever have to see that.
I don’t think I’ve done anything I didn’t care for except for bald. Been through a lot of stages. I went from flamboyant colors to a perm to just long hair to short hair to bald to whatever.
IDK if I’ll have time or remember, but I’ll see about pulling the other ones in. Never tried or cared to try dreads, I did rock a short mohawk at one time, and totally had a mullet in elementary school. My mom was a hairdresser, so it was all cool with her, and she did all of it for me. Great times, fo sho.
i love my long hair… i’ve done pixie, perm, bob, asymmetrical, big 80s hair, short practical (for martial arts in the day)… but i’ve never had the guts to shave my head. My 72 year old neighbor has shaved her head a couple times and i’ve always loved how empowering and freeing it looks. Maybe when i’m in my 70s.
I’ve always, always wanted a crazy early '70’s shag cut that would look HIDEOUS on me. Sometimes a longer Klute style cut, sometimes an almost-Pixie Elinor Donahue-as-Miriam-on-The Odd Couple, sometimes a full Suzi Quatro, but I’ve never done it because it none of them would work with my hair and/or face.
