If you didn't know, and I don't know how you could not know, last summer I approached several friends about doing a cooperative blog dedicated to the biggest, baddest and the most bouffanted hair around and call it the Hair Hall of Fame. Since blogger alreaduy had blog by that name, we capitalized "The" and the blog was born.
Needless to say, its been more fun than just blogging alone.
And it works because the people involved - TBJ, MJ, Thombeau, Jason, Pirate (AYEM8Y) , Donna, Felix, Gum Popping Trainee Stylist and the madcap Norma Desmond are creative, funny, convivial, smart and sassy. My fun comes from them letting me hang out with them.
But it also works because they all bring something to the HHoF that is unique - their perspective and outlook and most importantly, their energy. The rules are simple - they contribute when they feel like it, share something with a hair theme and refrain from posting anything that would get an "Adult Content" label slapped on the blog. (This means that MJ is unable to post her image of the VonTrapp Family singers sculpted in pubic hair.)
Without them, that blog would be nothing. While it is not the pure shrine to the perfectly bouffanted, it has become something much more vibrant because it is the blog that we have created, rather than a stiffly constructed, inflexible shrine. As a result, it is a more healthy organ, and I think, more entertaining and engaging.
So when Thombeau slipped me a graphic of line drawn girl heads from the late 1960s, it was simply Kismit that there were ten, and we at HHoF are ten, too. And thus this blog banner/flag.
So my invitation to you, if you haven't already done so, please feel free to visit The Hair Hall of Fame - no appointments necessary for good friends - and scroll through the past posts if you have a moment. We'd love to know what you think or have to share!
