Photohunt: Bad Hair



The photohunt theme this week is bad hair. I didn't have any good ones for the theme in my digital photography files, at least not of me. I had to resort to using old non digital photographs and the quality isn't great since my scanner isn't working well. The shot below shows how the magic kingdom was too much excitement for my hair. My daughter's hair is a lot more tame. I think the shot is from about 12 years ago. My pony tale is flying straight up behind me.
I'm not sure when the shot below was taken but I'm guessing it was pretty near the end of my father's life which was 1998. I am at the beach with my father and I think you'll be able to make out how I have this frizzy halo effect in spite of having my hair pulled back. I'll look forward to seeing the other bad hair photos. In spite of having notoriously bad hair, I was surprised that I didn't have more shots to choose from. I think I tend to throw away bad hair shots of me and it hardly seemed fair to post the bad hair shots I've kept of other people and then use them on a post like this.

Let it fly in the breeze
And get caught in the trees.
Give a home to the fleas in my hair.
A home for fleas.
A hive for bees.
A nest for birds.
There ain't no words
For the beauty, the splendor, the wonder
Of my...

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it,
Long as God can grow it,
My hair.

I'm a chicken... every day is a bad hair day...so I played safe...

ancient one said...

My favorite is the action shot. My sister's hair does the halo thing you have going on in the second shot...

RennyBA said...

Just the same as we have in amusement parks in Norway - getting a bit of bad hair is the whole point isn't it?

Wishing you a great end to your week :-)

Rach said...

I never even thought to check pics on rides - I bet I've got some scary hair ones like yours!

Angela at mommy bytes said...

I see the frizz!! Aw, that doesn't look too bad.

mama meji said...

I always get bad hair days...Happy hunting.

Sean said...

This week's theme is hard to do, but you did a good job.

Happy hunting~

keeyit said...

Sarge Charlie said...

Melli said...

I couldn't find any bad hair shots of ME... I fell back on the recent favorite!

Napaboaniya said...

hahahhahah~ The first shot made me laugh!! My daughter has got a photo just like that as well.Never fail to make me laugh whenever I look at it :P

Colin Campbell said...

Funny. My wife always goes with the kids on those kinds of rides. I hate them.

Yen said...

That's a lot of fun on the first pic:) Nice photos! Mines up too!

eastcoastlife said...

My hair looked worse when I took that ride in the theme park! It wasn't tied up and my hair was flying everywhere. lol

Blur Mommy said...

It's cool that you got a shot of you in the roller coaster. I would love to see of me & my hair flying in the air too. :)

Natalie said...

Those rides always make me look terrified, I should go find ours from last month...I bet my hair looked awful! LOL! I posted a pic of my daughter.

Lan aG! said...

Oh that first shot brings back many memories of the happiest place on earth!

Barbara H. said...

I am the same way -- I feel every day us a bad hair day for me. :-) Or at least there are more bad ones than good ones. But I couldn't find any pictures of myself with bad hair, at least not in the digital ones. Mine does what yours does when it is windy and humid. I love the one on the ride. Now that is a time to let hair blow and not worry about it. :-)

leslie said...

You're braver than I am in more ways than one. I'd never go on a roller coaster - again! lol Looks like you're having fun though! :D

jmb said...

Carver that's a great shot for the first one, with your hair flying out behind. Have a great weekend

Criz Lai said...

Cool..I have never thought of roller coaster shots. Great idea Carver :)

Carver, that braided hair, no matter how I try to tie my hair, curly tendrils tend to come out :) Love the first shot, wheee!

Hair on a roller-coaster has to fly - it is a sign of the fun. Love the frizzy one too :)

Love the shot of you and your Dad!

SabineM said...

Carver, I am on my laptop, but for some reason I cannot email ! haaaaa
I just realized to that I never did a bad hair post on my blog (only on my side by side)
SO thank you and sorry for the inconvenience. I did do one for 14, 21, and 28 for my blog
I am having a fabulous time. Enjoy yours soon!
Fabulous photos! Love both of them...

the teach said...

Carver, you are so brave to show your own bad hair days! You gave me a good laugh though. Never look at old pictures of ourselves... :D

Rebecca said...

That hair flying behind you is great! :)

Karen said...

Oooh, I can relate to the frizzy halo picture. I have TONS of photos like of me when I was younger. WHY does it do that?!

Surfergirl said...

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Ditto! I usually delete any unflattering photos of myself too.

carolinespicturepages.com said...

JC said...

Wonderful shots! I bet that second one is a treasured one!

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. I'm enjoying visiting the bad hair posts. My cable modem has been acting up so if I don't visit that's why. Happy weekend.

Sandy M said...

The first one looks like fun, but the one of you and your dad is priceless, even if you did have a case of the frizz that day. Have a great weekend!

2lives said...

I think I have the same hair, it just flys around even on wet, cold days

thanks for your visit and could you please delete the first link title - lissa -in your mr. linky? that was a mistake, thanks.

Sammawow said...

I love the "hair" action shot in the first picture. That ride looks familiar - I love roller coaster rides. And that's a nice shot of you and your dad!

Alice Audrey said...

Don't you hate fly away hair? Mine drives me nuts.

philos said...

Ain't it cool when you can blog about beautiful memories? Love your take on this. :)

Siani said...

Great shots, with some nice memories. I always get that frizzy halo effect as well. Nothing, not even hair gel, can prevent it. Have a lovely weekend!

jams o donnell said...

Great choices for this week's theme Carver. Have a wonderful weekend

Patricia said...

I took lots of bad hair photos in NYC this week, and I couldn't post them either. Wonderful photos for the theme, Carver.

Liz said...

The photos of me with bad hair are so hideous i refuse to post them! That fist photo is great. you must have been brave.

Dragonstar said...

That first shot looks like so much fun! This is a great post.

Carver said...

Thanks again to everyone for visiting.

Carin said...

That frizzy halo doesn't look bad at all.

Nice entries, guess you cherish that picture with your dad very much!

Vic Grace said...

I have really bad hair as a rule fine and flyaway so I have cut it really short and it is so much easier and looks tidier too

Katney said...

I avoided that my hair or theirs question by going to the zoo.

Biker Betty said...

I've had a few of those famous rides shot myself. Why do they have to have cameras on those rides, lol.

Happy Saturday,
Biker Betty

girasoli said...

Great shot on the rollercoaster. My hair often has the "halo" look also.

Inland Empire Girl said...

I loved your bad hair posts. I just couldn't find the pictures I wanted... maybe next week when the madness that happens at the end of the school year winds down I'll have more time.

mimi11460 said...
