Face and hair


This scarf was a gift to me from my daughter-in-law, she sent it to me from Japan but quite a long time ago. I now fold it in half and use it to cover my face on the rare occasions I leave the house. I've ordered a couple of those good quality face masks recommended for use by the WHO during this coronavirus outbreak but I'm still waiting for them to arrive.


My hair, well it is in need of a good cut now but I've resisted the temptation to take hubby's hair clippers to it and he won't do it for me as he's worried he'll be in trouble if I'm not happy with the result. 

He's given me permission to post a photo I took a couple of years ago of a disastrous haircut which was entirely his own fault. He passed the hair clipper to me and as soon as I made that first cut I realised the guard wasn't on it. This is the finished result but the accidental first cut was still noticeable. He wore a hat for a few weeks after that particular haircut. Strangely enough we're much more careful now. He's just told me to stop laughing :)

  1. Sorry but I just had to giggle - I hope hubby forgave you eventually. Lesson No.1 - stay away from the clippers! lol. I must admit Michael did a good job of shaving his own head the other week, he managed to do it without leaving any tufts behind. It's grown again pretty fast too, it's now not far from the length he would normally have it - hopefully by the time it really needs cutting again there'll be a local barbers open somewhere. If you need to wear something over your face then why not go for something like your scarf, it looks really nice :)

    1. It's funny now and we can both laugh about it but I was mortified at the time. Hubby never gets annoyed so if I wanted to.... (only joking). My Dad used to cut his own hair, it's so easy to do with clippers. I'm not sure hairdressers and barbers will ever be able to reopen as it's impossible to cut hair from two metres away.

  2. -grin- But he is a "good sport," to let you post this picture!!!!

    I have trimmed my husband's beard, but I do that, anyway. His hair is wavy and is staying in 'shape.' So he is fine, so far.

    My 'bob' is getting longer, as was my fringe. The bob works, even if too long for my age. Tried to grow my fringe out, to go to the side, but don't have the hair, for that style. Gave up and trimmed my fringe. So it is, what it is. -smile-

    Never heard of a cold cap. When my daughter had cancer, she lost her hair, with chemo and radiation. Got a wig, which she wore to work. But as soon as she got back in car, she took it off and put a cap on. And at home, wore a cap. Her hair came back in, in a gorgeous wavy curl!!! But went straight again. -pout-

    So many women have buzzed all their hair off... That what is *wrong* with a buzz cut??? Nothing! All it takes, is the Attitude!

    I had mine, all buzzed off, with just one longer lock, to the side. It was sooooo simple to keep!!!!!!!!! And with it, I had the Attitude!!!!!! -grin- Even an old lady like me!

    Seems that the worst off, are women with very short and shaped hair styles. They do not grow out well!!!!!!!! Those ladies are in "trouble," by now. -grin-

    Stay safe!

    1. He is a good sport and when I asked if I could put the photo online he said "If you must" :)
      My hair is fine and I normally use products to give it some shape and body which works well when my hair is short.
      I'm sorry to hear your daughter had cancer. Cold caps are used during chemo to cool the scalp and may stop the drugs from affecting the hair, I've said I'll give it a go. I've bought a couple of turban type hats which I think I'll be wearing before my treatment starts!

  3. Love your temporary face mask! May attempt to sew a mask. We'll see. I've cut DHs hair for many years & love it if he pops into a JUST CUTS occasionally to have it done instead. Mine is passed my shoulders again, but I'll get it done when all this is over. Take care, stay safe and huggles.

    1. Many people are wearing face coverings now, I'm sure you could make some nice ones with your sewing skills. The scarf is the best I could come up with until the bought ones arrive. I don't mind cutting hubby's hair for him and he doesn't mind me doing it even after that mishap!

    I'm trying not to laugh....okay, I failed. They do say that the difference between a good haircut and a bad one, is a week!

    1. It's okay for you to laugh otherwise I wouldn't have put the photo online. It took a couple of weeks for the bad haircut to grow enough for the clippers to reappear :)

  5. Oh my goodness, I bet you were in so much trouble, though I have to say I bet he makes sure the guard is on now. We could all do with haircuts, we're trying to wait it out until the hairdressers/barbers are open again but we may have to take measures ourselves if that doesn't happen soon.

    1. Hubby is very laid back and we certainly do make sure the guard is on the clippers now. I was so upset at the time at what I'd done. At the moment I can't imagine a time when the hairdressers will open again. In the grand scheme of things it's better to have unruly hair than catch this virus.
