A Nod to Mid-Century Fabulous - Big Hair Preppy!

Hello Lovelies,

In a nod to mid-century fabulous I must admit that I love big hair. I love it, I'm not sure if its the southerner in me, or the 80's child in me, or the fact that were I to choose an era to be born into it would be the 60's... one way or another I love a nicely teased do! I wish mine looked better teased... although there is one retro-fabulous cheerleading picture of me with a great do floating around somewhere out there... if I dig it up sometime soon I'll include it in this post!

I especially love the ponytail in this first photo... you can bet your lunch money lovelies, that if I can ever shape my tired tresses into that do, I'll be plastering the photo evidence as far and wide as my little fingers can type!

I just dream of big hair! My hair is thin, so I keep it short. That first picture is just stunning!

Give me a set of hotrollers, and I'll give you a Texas do' you'll never forget. Next time you watch a pageant, I'll bet you five that Miss Texas has the biggest hair.
Love The Big Hair, and by the way Big Sexy Hair is a fabulous product line for this, well duh, but you know I mean it works!

I love big hair too!!! I think a good teasing brush and some hairspray are a girl's best friends! I love the first pony look, but that headband style further down is to die for!
