Hair, hair everywhere
Some have little some have lots
Blue hair, Pink Hair, Polka dots

But there is going to be hell toupee….

Entailed within the following post is the history of a hair-do I like to call The Helmet, a hair-do which grows so rapidly if left unchecked could threaten civilisation as we know it. Yes dear, adoring, blogging public I speak of the messy mop which currently adorns my cranium.

Naturally gifted, the hair started its life head and shoulders above its other appendage rivals, high and mighty it lorded over all it surveyed. And became twisted in the power it beheld, it grew and grew. Bringing with it ridicule for it's wearer, affectionately known as Stack-hat through his high school years, then later known as Grug, named for the hairy little echidna that he was. *

Unlike most hair, the do was not content to grow in length, "any hair could do that" thought the hair, so it made a solemn pledge to never grow to a useful length, but too always become thick and unmanageable to even the strongest of gels and sprays, to boldly grow where no hair has grown before, to never have a consistent colour bleaching in non specific patches giving a genetically altered mouse look. A style years ahead of its time.

The council of Hair dressers, telephone sanitisers, and other miscellaneous middle men convened.

Not Britney Spears------>

"The Hair must be stopped, no matter the cost. We will shave them on the seas and oceans, we shall shave with growing confidence and growing strength in the hair, we shall never surrender no matter what the cost may be." – Wilkinson Swordshill. ***

The offensive lasted all day, the floors covered with hair, the enemy decimated, and receding to the safety of its home land… It had tried many times to escape unnoticed, hiding under, blue, red and Green camouflage, every time it was detected and kept in line with the scissors of peace. It lay, plotting and scheming and awaiting for the chance to rise again.

Today is that day ladies and gentlemen; the hair we have feared is back, thicker and darker than ever. Spreading keratin fuelled mayhem across the blogosphere. But what to do abut it, the old alliances have fallen into disrepair, the telephone sanitisers don’t speak to the hair dressers, (mostly from fear of dirty phones), and no one likes middle men.

I guess this is my way of saying (quite long windedly) that I need a hair cut or a change… Any Ideas?

*side note Dad still to this day calls me Grug.**

** I had a friend with the nick name frosty, due to the snowy peaks of dandruff that occurred on his head, dad still calls him frosty to this day.

*** side note 2: most of Winston Churchill's speeches were written by A A Milne, as in the Author of Winnie the Pooh. "We will fight them on the seas and oceans, Eeyore and Tigger will bring cake for Christopher Robin"
This is Grug, for all those who dont know.

FAUX HAWK!
I love the picture of you two in your neon phase. All I ever had the courage to wear were streaks dammmmmit!

On a hot Summers day at the Lake we decided to add 'streaks' to our hair as we lay around the dock waiting for the night before to evaporate from our pores so that we could start on the night at hand....

I'll never forget that particular summer because one of my friends had somehow latched on to a beautiful Kiwi gal with a penchant for suntanning topless, no biggie in Australia but about as rare as a unicorn in Canada.

Yeah it's funny how some images just stick with you
(smiles out loud)








............where was I..

Oh yeah, long story short;
we ended up having fantastic groovy accents that probably bleached our brains..not that we weren't doing a good job of destroying as many of those as possible.

Pretty cool for 1974!

None of your pix show you with long hair, Mate. I think that's your next style, meself.

But if that doesn't suit you, I'd say that close-cropped red was pretty cool.

Blogger Aidan said...

Long hair? hrmm im am trying that, it sort of gets to a certain length stops then just gets thicker.. I could try and leave it a little longer but it is driving me batty:)

Awww I love Grug. I think he's gonna give Cousin It (from the Addams family) a run for his money!!! How about doing one of those nifty haircuts where you can spell out names at the back of your head. You can do BADASS :P Haha!

Blogger Aidan said...

Banter: BAdass in my hair... hrmmm, tempting. Maybe i could rent the space out, advertising on the back of my head.

Keshi: Crop, back to a crew cut? Yeah why not.

Long in a ponytail or 2 cm short and standing upright (can't find the name in english for it), and in Spain I saw a guy who had a striking amount of thick hair with a rather short Mohican haircut and that looked very special (the height of the hawk was because of the amount of hair that partly layed flat, pffffff hard to explain). You know many have a hawk of which you can think : ok, nice trial, but not enough hair to be impressive. Anyway, I suppose that's not acceptable when working in a bank, right ? We have comic books here where the hero has a helmet haircut, it is for children though :-) So, good luck choosing and trying out and keep us informed !

Hmmmm...I think I am sort of in line with hildegarde on this one...perhaps a short all-over spike? Although you do look good in the buzz-cut. I just think you would look better with a little more length than that. Stace needs a little sumthin' to run her fingers through still. *grin*

Blogger Aidan said...

Hildegarde: Belgian Comic books, the home of Tin Tin and ASterix:)
Maybe i should go the Gaul Look... Who is the helmet headed Hero of Beligum?

Jewel: all over spikes, and Bright blue... That is very tempting... will be awesome for NINE INCH NAILS, in 11 days. Not that i am counting down:)

Yes bright blue is a nice colour.
I am glad you put the label "Not Britney Spears on the photo because I was getting confused whose blog I was reading.
