And maybe paint my toes too, though I will have to see on an appointment for that, and arranging that at such short notice might be fun! There is also the issue of cost as well! Yes, I know its not that expensive, but throw in that I need the brows waxed too, and not knowing how short a flapper dress (see video) I might be expected to wear next Friday in Blackpool, maybe the legs need doing to? Thankfully they arent hairy, so I might pass on that, but the brows, oh dear! Yes, hazard of only being able to work a 4 day week, on a 5 day week expenses!
In truth, the main thing I need to do though, is get my hair done! Yes, its due to be colored (what, you thought I was a natural blonde. lol?) again, and its also the time to take the shears to it, though scissors will probably have to suffice. Well, you see…
The last time my hair really got cut was about 18 months ago. It did get the ends chopped off last November, but that really has been it. Thing is, at my age, your hair doesnt grow so quick, so no, its not down my back or anything, though it is (just about) longer than the back of my neck at present. I started growing it out nearly a year earlier than then, because of the wedding last September, and my normal 30’s cut would be a bit short if my hair needed to be put up, or anything. So I let it grow, and grow…
Last November, I asked my lovely hairdresser when last coloring it, to cut it a lot shorter. I think she thought I meant the usual take the ends off stuff, and I thought fine, I’ll roll with that, but now…Yes, its starting to get annoying!
Anyway, I have already warned her that I want dramatic change this time, given the 2 20’s events I have coming up, and that I want it bobbed. No, I’m not going in for the boyish bob, a la Louise Brooks, or anything as dramatic as that, but a lot shorter, and a lot sleeker, most definitely! I’m too boyish looking for the Brooks look, even with my boobs! But something far more flapper like, most definitely. So yes, tomorrow, for the last time for a while, I’ll go into work with a mop of unruly hair, and then shock them on Friday (hopefully) with the new flapper me! No, I’m not going to wear a short dress or anything, its March, in Yorkshire, not August in California lol! Not that I’m sure a woman of my age should be showing off her knees any more, but I guess I might be on Friday week anyway? 😉
But yes, assuming I can get my new dress taken up in time (its too long, even on a relatively tall woman like me!), I will be the perfect flapper on Saturday, and I might be a more saucy flapper a week on Friday. Might definitely have to let Clara Johnson take control of my thoughts if its that short lol, she probably wouldnt care!
I cant get anyone an invite to Saturday, unless already on list, but if you’re in the Blackpool area, and are free on the evening of the 16th March, and want to flirt with a flapper (kidding, at my age) then head here, and book your tickets, its for a good cause.
I know, wont work for most readers, but if it does…?
Yes, lets just say that the more mature flapper, with the long(ish) bob haircut could well be me!
So, video time. Well, beat the drums because here comes thoroughly (non) modern Harlean now! Just remember when watching this, Angela Lansbury was on the wrong side of 40 when this was filmed!
