Metroheads: Oldfashioned coiffure and Woman in red reading

Today it is Friday, July 4th, happy July 4th to all my American friends, today you get two Metroheads:)

The blond woman with the red-orange top reading her newspaper - not everyone is trapped by his cell phone, there are lots of people who read, books or Newspapers. You have a lot of free Newspapers on the Metro, there are dispensers everywhere. People leave them on the seats or throw them away once they read them.


The woman with the oldfashioned coiffure - I was fascinated by this hairdo, so unusual in fancy Paris. When I was little and we had those hot summers, my mother made me a hairdress almost like that, with a sort of fluffy thick brown plastic ring, you had to pull the hair through the whole and then I have no idea how she fixed the hair around the ring. But it looked like a DONUT, (I'm having so much fun here:)

This one though is different, there isn't a whole in it and it doesn't look like a Donut, it looks like ... I don't know... what do you think?

From the back this hair looks like that way I used to wear my hair. I would pull it into a high pony tail with an elastic band and then sort of spread the hair out around it and pin the ends under. I have a picture from college wearing this hairdo and it is really dorky.

Thanks for the new metroheads of the day. Have you had your metrohead today?? Sort of like a hit of vitamins. You are a genius Miss Andrea. Be well, Suki

Hi Suki:)
You are so funny, I'm sure you didn't look dorky:) I'm sure even this hairdo would suit you well!

And oh, that nice, "have you head your metrohead today?" LOL,
Thanks for liking them, they are all so exciting:)
love
have a great 4th of July (or is that tomorrow, no, oh I'm confused)

More wonderful Metro work. A wonderful way to make the time count and go faster. They are all so unique. And study people.
I guess Suki answered the superman question about the Phonebooth. Silly things we rememeber. lol

Love the hairdo!

Love >M<

I agree with sukipoet on that hairdo - I wore mine that way too because back in the day one couldn't wear long hair to work...wow, not that long ago!

Hi Andrea,

These are really great and a contrast in coiffure! I don't know what you call these the second woman is wearing. Sometimes you see older women (those who do not cut their hair) wear these. I think maybe they are easier to "do" than the traditional bun or something.

The first woman seems really intent on what she is reading. We have all of those free papers here at the Metro stations, too.

Have a beautiful, beautiful day Andrea!

Oh oui !! Ce chignon très altmodish ;) La vieille nounou de mon ex. arborait un fantastique chignon avec des tresses et plein de trucs, toujours tiré à 4 épingles !! Ca me fascine aussi ;)

Cestandrea said...

Cris, thanks so much, I really love having you and my other blogfriends' feedback on these, it is important to know if I captured something that expresses these people later-on! And I didn't remember the thing with the phone booth!

Cestandrea said...

Marianne: Candyfloss! thanks so much for this description, it is great! Black candyfloss! A writer could use that if he/her wants to use this image! Have a great day
love
Andrea

Tammy! I learn so much, here, each day. You weren't allowed to let your hair fly in the wind (or the airconditioning) in these days? I wonder what you had to wear, cause I guess there must have been restrictions with regard to the clothes too?

Cestandrea said...

Kim, my dear, you know what these are called (or were called when I was little) "DUTT", funny isn't it?:)

Cestandrea said...

Human Being: A coconut!!! Great!!!
Wow I love this: Candyfloss and Coconut!:) I love these images...

Cestandrea said...

Flo, so often I catch their backs:) Cause I'm still too timid (with rare exceptions) to draw someone who is sitting right in front of me. I often draw people sitting on the "Strapontins" (flip-up seats near the sliding doors of the metro car, I explain it in case anyone reads all the comments and does not speak French so well:) ...

Marigaz: Alors, tu connaissais ton ex depuis le Sandkasten? :) LOL
and did your ex turn out a Chignon fetishist? :)
