"Cool Candy"............

Do you ever have one of those days where you think that just by getting a haircut it will fix everything?  Sometimes it's true, and sometimes it's not.

I think it was middle school or early junior high when I woke up so frustrated and for some STUPID reason I agreed to let one of the "cool" girls at school cut my hair. Her name was Candy. She was the one with the most safety pins holding her pant legs tight together with bandanas wrapped around them.  You see her mother was a hairstylist in a very high class salon, so we figured of course she knew what she was doing.......another poor choice.  Live and Learn, luckily my hair grows fast.  

It was about this time my mom and I became the favorite customers of our local Avon Lady.  She would drop by a few times a month and bring us samples.  I was so into the blue and pink eyelids of the 80's.  I look back at pictures and wonder if I was the inspiration for Rainbow Bright?? 

I tried the Pat Benitar look ( Which consisted of lining your complete eye with very thick and very black eyeliner).  This lasted for only about 2 weeks til my best friends mom was kind enough to say " Dear, that eyeliner you are wearing makes you look cross-eyed!"  That ended that.   Back to pink.
