This weeks Sundays Scribblings prompt is " Nearly"
Nearly fifty five and I am still learning things about my deceased mother. As we all know Liz Taylor passed away recently. While another blogger made a commentary on Liz’s marriages and generous nature I was most struck by the tube video below!
Over the years my mother always seemed a bit outdated with her Hairstyles. It frustrated my brother and I since she was a hairdresser. In his effort to convince her to change hairstyles, I remember him telling her about attractive women he spotted from behind who he thought were much younger because of their updated hair and clothing. It was only when the women turned around he noted they were moms age.
Mom tended to get a hairstyle and stick with it too long. Many of her customers were the same. As young adults both bro and I opted to get our own hairdressers. I’m sure Mom was relieved because she could never please us fashion wise. She was already doing all her relatives for free and had little interest in doing hair by then. She never commented on our hair either way once we switched beauticians.
Looking back at photos, mom was an adorable young woman with fashionable outfits, and cute stylish hair. Many of which I now see were fashioned after Ms. Taylor. I see almost every hairstyle mom ever had in this video. Wow you learn something everyday.
