A Hair Raising Experience

First off, let's get one thing understood. This was not my idea. My kids know how I feel about Bump-its so when Grandma Dee asked Mae what she wanted for her Birthday, Mae conned Grandma Dee into buying a set because she knew I had no interest in buying her the unusual hair accessory.

Since acquiring Bump-its we have enacted a no bump-its at school rule (Our rule, not the school's.) so that leaves weekends and Holidays for my kids to heighten their hair. Saturday was our first round of family Thanksgiving so the girls of course wanted me to install these crazy things for them. Aaaaand since I already had the hair spray and teasing comb out, I decided to try one as well, you know just for fun. Mae used the regular Bump-it and Binny used the mini Bump-it, so I was left with the Hollywood Bump-it. Making me feel more ridiculous than Hollywood, I decided to take it out before dinner, but before I could do so, the girls insisted we all take a photo together with our big happy hair. All in the name of fun!

Laughing here and remembering that I insisted on having a Topsy-Tail when I was about 12. Do you remember that useless piece of plastic?

Erm what's a bump it??

Aliceson said...

Joe, It's a plastic framework that tucks under the hair to make it taller. Weird right? The Bump-it is heavily advertised during the TV shows my kids like to watch, hence the allure.

I can see you now shaking your head and mumbling "silly Americans."

Well, maybe the 80's really ARE coming back! I saw leg warmers the other day. lol. Actually though, those bumpits are sooooo pupular! And they look so good! They really do rally up flat hair. I just may get me a bumpit!

You all look soooo good! Beautiful!
