Nobody changes their hair color more than I do…Blond, Black now Red!


November 22, 1964, Sunday.

Went to work until 4:00, then went home and did a crazy thing. I put a red rinse on my hair. It turned out so ugly… I’m going to wear it to school tomorrow and see if Mr. Bodger, (the Drama teacher and Talent Scout,) wants me to keep it this way for the Senior play… so I’ll look like my sister in the play. This play is so dumb! I hate to have to be in it.

This year I’ve gone from being pale blond, to wearing an exotic black wig, to now being a red head. 


saffrons rule sharrie senior play


Here I am at rehearsal, with Linda Sarno, who has a dark red flip.  I thought if my hair was reddish, it would seem more believable that we’re sisters in the Senior Play.  I wonder what Mr. Bodger will think when he sees my hair tomorrow at rehearsal.
