For Karen, Cherry, and Sandy

My bloggy gal pals and I were laughing about the "Little Asian Girl Haircut" (A.K.A. The Bowl Cut) that we all sported when we were kids. Growing up the 1970's and 1980's, it seemed almost everyone had the same hairstyle. I never knew why it was called "the bowl cut" until I saw my Mom actually put a bowl on my brother's head and cut around it!!! Ha! Ha! Ha! I still laugh every time I picture her doing that.
*sigh* I was so skinny back then!!

In the last photo, I'm the one on the right. I'm the only girl, yet we all have the same haircut!!
Oh, don't think for one minute that Baby Bro was spared from Mom's wielding scissors and most detested "bowl cut" bowl! Though an entire decade passed between Baby Bro, Middle Bro and me, that didn't stop Mom's bowl cut! I think I was ten or eleven when I begged her to take me to the hairdresser's to get my hair cut!

When I have kids, I am going to leave the haircutting to the professionals!

That's par for the mom course. I wouldn't let mine near my hair after years of her trying to run a comb through this mess, and when I went to the hairdresser for the first time I fought it all the way. Wore a hat for the entire summer after they butchered me. My cousins had the same cut too. But you're all still so cute!

Sparing your kids from the bowl, C, you will be an AWESOME mom LOL!!!! Thanks for those amazing pics. Nothing says unisex like a bowl tee-hee!

Don Mills Diva said...

Aww - think those little bowl haicuts are adorable on kids...

Sandy C. said...

Oh I LOVE it! I adore photos from childhood ;) You may have a unisex haircut, but you are so pretty! I can totally tell you're the girl.

I on the other hand....was asked if I was my brother's "Little Brother" all .the.time *sobs* That could explain some of my weirdness ;)

Let's all make a vow to BREAK the BOWL-CUT tradition with all of our current and future children! lol :)

Funny how when you have curly hair, you want straight hair and when you have straight hair, you want curly hair. I've always had super straight hair and reeeeeeeeeally wanted curly hair when I was younger. I even went as far to get my hair permed when I was in high school. Imagine Asian with the biggest 'fro ever. *sigh*

C said...

LOL! Thanks, K! I think I'll have to take pointers from you one day...because you're an awesome mom!

C said...

Don Mills Diva:
Graham's got a great hair style. Where do you get his done? Surely, it does not look like you put a bowl on his head and cut around it ;) He's too stylin' for that! What a cutie!

C said...

Awwww! LOL! You were asked if you were the little brother?? How on earth would anyone mistake you for a boy when you were a kid?

I must say that Ella certainly takes after you. So pretty!!

Jeanna said...

C. That is not only an hilarious thought, but one that I never quite got. Curly hair was the bane or bangs of my existence as a kid.

C said...

LOL! I'll have to post a photo of me and my Asian 'fro for you one day. pains me to even think about it right now! It was hideous! LOL!

Karen MEG said...

C, I did not know YOU had an Asian fro as well... sheesh, what torture to grow up in the 80s LOL!

Inspiring thought for another post LMAO!!!

C said...

Oh, dear. The Asian 'fro was a horrible, horrible thing. I may (or may not) post photos one of these days! LOL!
