I have this go-to braid + bun kind of hairdo that I always do when my hair is in it's in-between un-done stage -- not straightened but not curly either - just wild and crazy and needing to be pulled back.
One Saturday morning when I had this in-between hair, we were at Al's looking at camping gear and as we walked past a college-age couple, the girl stopped me, "Ma'am" (Not my favorite term since it always makes me feel old!)
"Ma'am, your hair is freaking awesome!"
Ever since then, whenever I'm pulling back my wild hair, I think of that funniest compliment and it always makes me smile! :)
