Hairy Situation
Written by Mrs. Dingman's 5th Grade

We recently completed short, narrative paragraphs to meet the guidelines set by Writer's Digest Magazine, Kid's Assignment #72. Writer's Digest challenged us with this prompt:

"You've just gone to the salon or barber to get a trim. After what seems like hours, the person who cut your hair spins you around to face your reflection. You can't believe what you see! What did he or she do to your hair? Is it a ghastly green? Purple? Gone? Describe your new hair "don't" as creatively as possible without exceeding the 75-word limit." 

Enjoy our humor and imagination!

Hairy Situation
My hair looked awful. I could not believe what I was seeing. My hair was purple and I did not like it one bit! I was so mad I did not pay the barber because my hair was just awful! It looked like an over-size Oompa Loompa. I walked out of the store and put my hair in the fountain. The Oompa Loompa purple hair went away after 2 weeks.

Hairy Situation
My hair looked very awful. My hair... well... I can't tell how it looks. Let's just say it looks awful. It looks like a pumpkin pie orange Mohawk, with yellow-like lemon pie stripes going up and down, and a very dark red, like blood, going side to side. My mom yelled at the barber and got all our money back. The next day he found a hair shampoo and my hair went back to normal.

Hairy Situation
... My hair was pearly piggy pink!!! It was wild!! I showed my mother and she said, "I will change your hair!!"
The next morning I woke up, looked in the mirror and I was not pink. I was happier now, and it was Monday. I was filled with relief that my hair was not pink. I ran downstairs and said, "Thanks mom." Then I went to school and had a good day!!

Hairy Situation
My hair is the worst hair ever. I paid $49.99 for a trim. Here's the story... I went to the salon at 9:00am. I accidentally fell asleep. The barber spun me around. He said done. I looked in the mirror. He said, "Do you like it?" I got in my car and drove home. I figured out that my sister was friends with the guy at the salon and he played a joke. MY LIFE IS GREAT!!!!!

Hairy Situation
The barber gave me a Mohawk. I yelled. Then he said he'd fix me. When he finished, it was an Afro on one side, Mohawk in the middle, and spiked hair on the other side hairstyle! I left. And my hair was blue. Later I went to the barber. I yelled so loud that if there's life on Mars they would've heard me. My hair came off. I had a wig on. He laughed. I left.

Hairy Situation
My hair has two ponytails on both sides of my head and one in the back. The ponytails on the left are red and the ones on the right are green. The one ponytail in the back is purple. The ponytail holders are bright pink. The ponytail in the back is sticking up and the red ponytails are cut short. The green ones are so long they touch the floor!

Hairy Situation
I went to the salon for a hair cut. After it felt like hours I was done. The lady turned me to the mirror. I was horrified. I fell out of the chair. My hair was a nightmare! My hair looked like a tie die mess! I could not believe my eyes. I ran out of the hair salon and screamed. It was a hair disaster, if you ask me. My hair is ruined.

Hairy Situation
AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! My hair is spiked up. It is so short you would think I was a boy. It is also colored baby blue and grimy green with revolting rainbow tips. It looks like sewer water, except more disgusting. I think the revolting rainbow tips make it look like the leaves that fall in autumn. It is so glittery you would think I was a star in the sky. I hate my new haircut a lot.
