In my family, we take what we call hair photos. Four women will be standing on the staircase at my mother’s house, and someone will yell, "Hey, everyone lean your heads over the rail and we can take a hair photo!" I think the tradition started because we have lots of different hair colours in the family – and lots of long, beautiful hair.
Last weekend, the back of my brother-in-law’s pickup truck seemed a perfect opportunity for a hair photo. In the interest of breaking gender stereotypes and being an equal opportunity hair blogger, I made two of the males at camp get into the hair photo. Neither ever combs or brushes his hair – and neither has had a haircut in over two years -- but both have gorgeous curls.
