Decades of Hairstyles!!!!

********************
Hello there and what a busy but enjoyable week I’ve had and despite the wet weather on Saturday my young friend Charlotte and I decided to still go and visit my adorable step-granddaughter in Camborne as planned. After first waiting at the train station for a train that didn’t stop at Hayle on Saturdays (sounds like the joke from the Cornish comedian Jethro) we finally arrived after a kind gentleman, who also wanted the train, gave us a lift. We were grateful but it meant being dropped off at the opposite end of the town to where we wanted to be. That was ok because then I had an excuse to look at the shops on the way. Got some great bargains at the charity shops, mainly for grandbaby of course..lol...Having not walked to my future DinL’s flat before and trusting Charlotte’s promise that it was only 10 minutes walk, I decided to forgo a ride in a taxi.....mistake. Now normally I love to walk but on this occasion we were not only loaded down with bin bags full of goodies (well I did say I got some good bargains!!!) it was also raining and windy. So off we trotted for this ’10 minute’ walk which magically turned into nearly ½ hour.....it didn’t help that I have little legs (in length not width!) and Charlotte is not only a lot younger but is blessed with long legs!!!! Despite arriving like drowned rats we did enjoy our time and then later my son drove us home......
********************
After having a full day out I decided to sit down with a coffee, unwind and check out some of the blogs I like to visit, and I’m so glad I did because I ended having a really good laugh...at myself!!!! It was while visiting Linda’s blog Blue Eyed Girl that I found a link to www.yearbookyourself.com/ and its’ hysterical. If you want to find out if different hairstyles suit you this is the site to visit, be warned you will laugh your socks off......also check out Linda’s photos...lol....
********************

So I thought you may want to start laughing here. Now some of these are a bit scary, well to me they are. I used the photo I have here on my blog and just had fun adding the different styles....I've decided that I’m glad I am in my 50’s now and not back then...hehe...

Would have look in 1966

********************

I hope I haven't bored you too much with so many photos of me but it did make me laugh seeing myself with these 'hairstyles', thank goodness I only ever had one of these....the one with the long straight hair.....But I hope they made you smile at least.......Enjoy your Sunday & take care till next time....lol....

Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, 'where the heck is the ceiling'

Hi Chrissy
I am in spasms over these styles. My DD did some of me similar to this. Being a hairdresser, I can say that I have had some different hairstyles. LOL. Just think, during a few of those decades you were really in style! LOL.
Blessings to you; thanks for the giggles.

Hi Blondie, I do like to have a laugh. I was in stitches myself 'trying' the styles on me. Thank goodness I only had one of them in real life...I've also done the same with hubby, it was hysterical. I may even show some of him...hehe...I'm wicked...Hugs Chrissy x
