#SoCS & #JusJoJan – Feb. 05 2022 – Page

Linda’s SoCS prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “page.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

Page is always appropriate with an avid reader and writer, however, the first thing that came to my mind was my first ever haircut!

As a young British Indian child, I was there with my long, long hair in a plait at school, and all my friends had these cool (to me) haircuts and well, I wanted one, too.

It took a lot of convincing because cutting our hair is not really embracing the Sikh way, however, after a lot of pleading to my Pops, my mum took me to a little salon.

And I ended up with what was called a pageboy cut. Okay, so it looked more bowl-like, but this hairstyle virgin was more than happy!

I still cringe at the photos…

    Want to see the page haircut photos, Sis! 😉 By the way, as you mentioned it. Last week i had read about the duty of Sikh man not to cut their hairs. Is this really so mandatory? However i love the turban. xx Michael

    Nice take Sis, I was the same I wanted a pageboy cut too and I am at least twenty years older than you . My parents did not give in so my long hair and plait lasted until I was older and in my teen when I had a Cilla Black cut! 💜💜💜

    I always had short hair so it is hard to imagine angst around haircuts. Great use of the prompt.

    Women getting their long hair cut…it sends shivers up my spine. I’ve been there after it’s been done.

    It used to be the most convenient style for young girls.
