Whilst living the life of the not-teacher I have been in the lovely position of being able to take my daily swim in the morning. I arrive at the pool wearing jeans and a jumper over my swimming costume, and with my hair swept up in a fashionable chignon. Well, actually I don’t even know what a chignon is; my morning hair arrangement is more a case of hiding as much of the tangled mess as I can with clips and bandanas.
I have christened this plethora of hair controlling devices ‘hair-furniture’ (we met the man who was in charge of ‘path-furniture‘ on the Isle of Man). It takes ages to remove all of my hair-furniture and add a plain band before I can enter the pool. I am beginning to wonder if I should just arrive au mess.
One piece of hair-furniture that has been working well for me recently is a headband that I bought in Austria. Complete with edelweiss, this handy contraption is ideal for walks on hot days as it stops sweat running into your eyes. Reading a map with sweaty eyes is a very difficult affair! You can also achieve this effect with a Buff but I have yet to find a Buff with an edelweiss pattern.
