The Hair Chronicles

I have always has ‘issues’ with my hair.

Always.

Always.

Always.

For as long as I can remember.

I remember fighting with my mother, when I was just a small child, as she tried desperately to manage the tangled mess on top of my head. And I have spent nearly every day of my adulthood battling my own follicles.

I have had short hair, long hair, curly hair, colored hair, (I’ve been a blonde, a brunette, and a red head). I have had thin hair, thick hair, 80’s do’s, and sporty do’s. I have rocked hair cuts with bangs, hair cuts without bangs…and I have had plenty of hair don’t(s) in this life time.

Even when (or if by some miracle) I do have a ‘good hair day’ it seldom stays down for longer than a few hours before being tied up into the familiar and oh so comfortable pebbles bun.

I have never considered doing anything this extreme, because (contrary to popular belief) I am not a crazy person. However, I have considered chopping it all off.

Most of my hair nightmares happened before I became friends with the Worlds Greatest Hair Dresser. And now that I actually LISTEN to the advice she gives me, I have been able to maintain touchable locks. But even with her magical powers, I still can’t seem to achieve a harmonious relationship with my hair.

Here is the proof positive, that no matter what I do, no matter how shiny or soft my hair is to the touch of a human hand…

It Is Official. I will always have a birds nest for the tresses which make up my mane o’ hair.

  • The best friend

    I love Clemmy in your hair!!

  • I have awful, hateful thin and nappy hair when it’s too long. I’ve had a short & sassy cut for years. And girl, I haven’t seen my natural color since I was 16!

    Happy Monday!

  • yo momma

    no brick wall shots???? damn!

    I once toyed with the idea of shaving my head. But, then I realized I would have to lose 60 pounds or run the risk of looking like a beach ball with a ping-pong ball on top of it. Someone pointed out that to lose that much weight AND shave your head afterwards would make people think you were dying of cancer, so I gave the idea up. And, of course, I never lost the 60 pounds, so it became a moot point anyway. 🙂

  • Meleah

    BFF:
    Yeah, she’s a cute bird.

    Diva:
    Its all about GOOD color!

    Mommy:
    We have to scan those pictures of me when I was 12 years old into my computer one day. My God!! “The Brick Wall” hair was the best!

    CMK:
    hahahahahahahah 60 pounds with a shaved head WOULD make you look like you had cancer.

  • A bird in the nest…. That’s so cute! 🙂

  • Oh Mel, I feel your pain. I have a head of Masses of curls. Some are nice, cork srew curly and others curl how ever they feel like it that day. Your Pebbles bun, is my constant look. When I do wear it down, people don’t recognize me….that’s how often I wear it up. A good hair day is a day without even a hint of humidity.

  • Meleah

    Dawn:
    That bird is cute, but she really CLINGS to one’s hair and scalp!

    Chef Mom:
    I really HATE my hair sometimes. Good Hair Day? What even IS that? And that happens to me too, when I wear my hair DOWN people are always so ‘shocked’!

  • The pebbles pic looks great! Of course it does also have that amazing lamp you are holding…

    😉

  • you know what? i don’t want britney’s hair or anyone else’s. i want to be so rich that i don’t give a crap what my hair looks like. please god, give me the chance to prove that having money wouldn’t make me cut my hair like that.

  • Me I wear a racing hat covers up all kinds of bad hair days…but your looks good to me…but I bet your sexy as hell, in a ball cap though…:))))

  • Jodi

  • Harry

    Always!

    🙂

  • Mine is still up. Oh crap, I mean the lamp. My LAMP is still up.
    Whew, almost put myself in a that’s what she said position for a moment there.

  • Firstly, I think you have wonderful hair!! Secondly, be thankful that you don’t have to take it off when you go to bed at night…lol!

    My hair is funny – it grows up rather than down. So if I leave it too long before I have my hair cut, I end up looking like a mushroom 🙂

    Warmest regards and big hugs ~ Graham 🙂

  • LOL!! Michael C can use that phrase anywhere!!!
    I cut my hair last week, (and yes I do it myself, since it’s so curly, you couldn’t tell the difference) and took my husband an entire week to notice. Nice huh?! His excuse was, “I never saw it down!!”

  • i would kill for beautiful hair like yours… i have typical thick wavy italian girl hair… it comes in one style and one style only although color is subject to change without notice… today… it is a lovely chestnut brown…..

  • Meleah

    Harry:
    Thank you darling. You are too kind.

    Michael C:
    hahahahha…I love you. TWSS rulz

    Graham:
    Aw. Thanks. and that is TRUE!!! Mushroom Hair is hilarious.

    Chef Mom:
    Yes Michael sure can use that line anywhere and any how! And I digg that about him.

    You cut your own hair? I’ve tried that….Not. Good.

    hahahahah Your husband never even saw your hair down hahahahaha

  • Your hair looks gorgeous as always, obnoxious bird or not. TELL me you didn’t get a bird for a pet!?

  • Meleah

    Leslie:

    FUCK NO. I am PET FREE. (That is Tiffany: “Worlds Greatest Hair Dresser’s” bird. And my hair only looks good because of the cut and color given to me BY One Miss Tiffany. So, I let her bird hang out in my hair…. Its worth it! 🙂

  • LOL @ bird’s nest. I always thought you had beautiful hair! The magic of photography maybe? I’m planning on doing a hair post once I find the mullet and afro photos. Yes…afro.

  • Yeah, but is being known for repeating a line from TV really a good thing to be known for? I guess it’s better than running around saying ‘Dyn-o-mite’ or ‘What you talkin’ ’bout, Willis.’

    😉

  • Meleah

    Drowsey:
    No its the MAGIC of Tiffany (and good lighting) ….Yeay. Do a hair post too!! xxoo

    Michael C:
    Dood, you can work any of those into a conversation / post / email and that would still put a smile on my face….its all about YOUR DELIVERY….(not just the line) xxoo

  • Well Shazaam!!!!

    😉

  • Meleah

    Michael C:

    SEE! That is exactly what I am talking about! 🙂

  • Yeah…my blogmistress is NEVER happy with her hair! What IS it with you gals?!? Too short…too long…too straight….wrong color….ACK?!?….and now GRAY hairs too?!?!? WTF!?!?!

  • So you want Mint? I can probably do that at some point. Remind me in an email.

  • Meleah

    Michael:

  • Lee

    Meleah, I love you to death, but you’re not going to get much sympathy here. I’ve been forced to wear my hair “down” for years. Down on the floor, down the drain, down on my pillow, down on my collar…and it’s still falling out!

  • Meleah

    Lee:

    hahahah….and aww….thats terrible….but you still look so adorable…

  • My hair’s too short for a “pebble’s bun” now. It’s okay for now, but when it starts getting hot I’m gonna go nutz.

  • Your hair is lovely and so are you. That little birdy is so cute!

  • Meleah

    KellyPea:

    I know all about your hair!! I LOVE YOUR ‘hair’ posts!

    Selma:

    aww….thank you. and yes that bird is CUTE, but her nails are freeking SHARP

  • Hahaha funny 🙂
    I thought you have lovely hair though 🙂
