Big Texas Hair

Many years ago, when I first lived in Texas, I saw this cover of Texas Monthly magazine. I was more than slightly horrified.

Yes really. HER HAIR is styled like a hat.

The really funny thing is, the owner of the barn I was riding at during that time was one of the women featured in the article. She had impressively big bleach-blonde Texas hair, and she'd bought a Palomino quarter horse mare specifically to match her hair. It was fascinating, in that you-can't-look-away sense.

Anyway. Things have come a long way in the past 25 years, and most of us are a little more sensible about our hair these days. However, Paddy seems to want this big hair style to make a comeback.

So big. So fluffy. So Texas.

A little hairspray, a little teasing... we could go places with this...

  7. I love Texas. I love how it's so proud to just...exist as Texas.

    You should absolutely make hair art from Paddy's tail.

  9. I know someone who did the whole QH palomino to match her (big) hair thing. I'll keep Paddy's existence from her - they'd be a perfect hair match ;)
