On Being Short

On Being Short

Some days I'm tempted to leave the house with bedhead simply because it adds a few extra inches to my height. If you combine two inches of hair and three inches in high heels, I might actually reach 5'5". Of course, that would mean I'd be leaving with bedhead, and...

How Big is Your Comfort Zone

How Big is Your Comfort Zone

As you can probably tell, I have a pretty large comfort zone. Actually, I can't remember the last time I saw the border of my comfort zone. Yeah - it's that big. But it wasn't always so. When I was a child I had the comfort zone the size of a postage stamp. I had to...

Party in the Back

Party in the Back

Apparently, it's true. At a very low point in my hair history, I sported a mullet. I had actually blocked this out of my conscious memory, and was blissful in my lack of remembrance. Then Facebook happened. Plausible deniability no longer exists...because people from...

Adjusting to an Empty Nest

Hello, my name is Michelle and I'm an empty nester. Last week my 22-year-old daughter was the last little birdie to fly the nest. Of course I am happy for her. How could I not be? She's a vibrant, independent, amazing young woman. She knows who she is. She's fearless...

Not everyone can wake up with glam rock hair. I realize that this is totally unfair to those who are bald - by choice or by chance. So for you I have created the graphic above. Yes - you too can now post a bedhead photo of your own - complete with borrowed bedhead. I...

Laughter

Bedhead - inspiring laughter in bedrooms around the world every day. When my daughter, Lydia, was little, we shared a bedroom at my mother's house. At least once a week, when I was tucking her in, she would say "Mommy, let's have a Laugh Fest." Now, some of you may...

Dare to Dream – But Follow Up

Dare to Dream – But Follow Up

Famous Bedheads

While I do celebrate my bedhead daily - I also never leave the house this way. (You're welcome, world.) As I was falling asleep last night my husband and I started talking about people who DO leave the house with what we called "wacky hair." Not all look like bedhead,...

Bedhead = A Good Night’s Sleep

Bedhead = A Good Night’s Sleep

I'm proud of my bedhead. Good bedhead is a sign of a good night's sleep - and I do some of my best thinking when I'm asleep. In the last few weeks alone, I have had some wonderful adventures, and some really cool ideas while I've been sleeping. For example, a few...

Nap Head

Nap Head

Bedhead doesn't just happen overnight. It can also happen during a really good nap. (See example above.) There's something amazing about a good nap. The nap evidenced above occurred unintentionally. I fell asleep watching TV. Just goes to show you that some of the...

Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to the Daily Bedhead. A few months ago I posted this photo to Facebook with the caption "Does this bed head mean I can join Flock of Seagulls?" Hilarity ensued. But mostly I had people saying to me how brave I was. Really? A photo of myself with messy hair is...
