Hair Today Gone Tomorrow

with 2 comments

Its not really a secret, but at the same time its not well known, that when I came to the US and embarked on what I thought would be a great dance career I was persuaded to “wear hair” to cover up my lack thereof. The argument is easy to make, there are few bald(ing) latin dancers and one must do what one must (fake tan, jet black hair dye etc) to compete with everyone else. But I forgot that whats really important is to have a good dance partner and my two partners could barely walk in heels, let alone dance. Oh, and then those damn Russian teens showed up, which didn’t help.

Anywhoo, since I stopped dancing a few years ago there really was no reason not to go back to au naturel, other than the inevitable ribbing I would have to suffer. And so, last night, I got a little medieval on my head and am now a paid up member of the Yul Brynner club. Its going to take a little getting used to but so far I’ve not had any small children run away from me, or animals recoil in fear, so although to me I look like an end-stage cancer patient, perhaps everything will be ok.

At some point I will dig out some before and after, and after again, pictures.
