    Just for clarification … this photo was taken in St. Louis. I do not know where her grandma is from.

  7. Tommy says:

    Wow, the blonde girl looks just like my girlfriend!!!

  8. someone says:

    Even the hair is big in Texas.

  9. Erin says:

    Grandma looks a lil like Flo, the later years.

  10. anon. says:

    the blonde is looking into her future…they look like twins

  11. Rick says:

    Grandma is taller, but just by a hair…

    My mother was a hairdresser on an Air Force Base years ago; one with a large contingent of retirees. I swear this was the look she would give 90% of her customers to one degree or another. No we’re not in Texas… actually Southern California. A lot of “new” hairdressers don’t know how to do backcombing well enough to get this type of ‘do to stay for the week or until the next appointment. Maybe if 80’s hair is truly coming back, they will have all the practice they need to satisfy young and old!

    i love how the girl on the left is looking at the hair like something is about to pop out of it and get her. beautiful awkwardness.

  16. elizabeth says:

    ok i know it all, apparently you don’t know jack. the daughter has been on here more than once and just because technology makes it possbile does not mean every freaking picture is photoshopped. just look at them and enjoy, you don’t have to be so serious on here people and did you think in the 50’s and 60’s that beehives were photoshoped ummmmmm NO. Get over yourself

    Higher the hair, the closer to god

  18. philsadvns says:

    If this isnt photo shopped, then she wears a wig. I can see a VERY distinct hairline. But to be honest I’m actually a little more inclined to believe it’s a wig than photoshop.

  19. BitchinMiata says:

    we saw a waitress at the Horseshoe in Vegas with hair bigger than grandma’s– I think it is real, and I know it is fresh!

  20. IKnowItAll says:

    Sorry people, but it is photoshopped, as anyone who has worked in graphics can clearly tell. It may be impressive in its natural state, but enhancing it actually detracts from the believability.

  21. HIHIHI says:

    Young blonde is beautiful. fyi.

  22. Topaz says:

    Kiss my Grits!!

  23. Nerak says:

    She looks alot like my Mamaw did….nice hair.
    The grandaughter looks just like her…really cool…

    So that is her real hair and not a wig? I remember in the 70’s (I think) wigs were in and the higher the better..Is she in Texas?

  24. Bree says:

    I love that, with Grandma’s “high hair”, they are the same height!
    I guess since you shrink as you get older, the solution is to make the hair higher and higher!!

  25. Rona says:

    She must get her spun in one of those cotton-candy machines.

  26. Livi says:

    Grand-daughter next to her? They look a lot alike – pretty ladies!

  27. Anonymous says:

    Marge Simpson still has her beat.

    You can tell by her smile she is a sweetheart. But if she is enjoying the laughs, got to respect that and give them to her. 🙂

  28. Tim the toolman says:

    OMG! The blond girl is super hot!

  29. Sharon says:

    Hello Everyone,
    I printed all your comments for our Dolly Mama to read. She is not high tech. She has had the best time laughing at everything you have said about her hair. Hats off to her beautician who weekly, manages to exceed everyone’s expectation by getting the hair higher and wider.

    Another one of her sayings is that “you can never be too blonde or too high”. Keep up the great messages. She is loving it!!

    I love Cotton Candy!

  32. marge says:

    dye it blue!

    granddaughter is smokin’

  33. Pippy says:

    I love it. rock on, grandma!!

  34. Descartes says:

    She must be from Texas, or some other great state of The South

  35. Lucie says:

    I love your Mom! how does she get her hair to do that?

  36. Fred says:

    Grandma what big hair you have!

  37. Lori says:

    i love the line “the higher the hair, the closer to god’ lol too funny! granny would have made ALL of us jealous in the 80’s 😀

  38. Brett Mary says:

    Reminds me of the Carnival, cotton candy…..hmmm.

  39. agent says:

    Sweet:) they have the same smile.

  40. Clint says:

    NO SMOKING! * poof *

  41. Ash says:

    Actually Lindsay, coming from a Photoshop expert, this DOES look doctored. It looks like someone just selected all the hair and enlarged it. But, alas, I’m wrong.

  42. Becky says:

    Wow, that is truly impressive.

  43. Lindsay says:

    It’s so annoying when people are constantly crying ‘photoshopped’..just enjoy the pictures and relax! (I saw the previous comments that this photo is genuine, I’m just saying in general that people should chill about the photoshopping, especially when they have no idea whether it’s fake or not)

    • Twila says:

      I agree…. and it’s insulting when someone cries Photoshop and it’s not… so STOP it already! (Or to the SysGod’s… stop allowing those comments!)

  44. Sharon says:

    As she always says, the higher the hair, the closer to God. She wears her hair with pride and it is her signature trademark in her real estate business. This is her real hair. She is a beautiful giving person and I am proud to call her my mom.

    • Bonita Applebum says:

      Sharon, your mom ROCKS! I’m from Dallas, and decided to send this pic to my grandmother and some of her friends, and she’s having flashbacks of her attempts at the giant Angela Davis fros, fluffy bouffants, Farrah Fawcett wings, and she’s jealous of your mom: said she could never get her hair to go up, just out! I love her hair, and I love “the higher the hair, the cloer to God.” Tell your mom she is the BOMB!!!!!!!!

  45. roswelldawg says:

    Oh my!

  46. Lulus Mom says:

    Don’t laugh. That’s the shape of her head.

  47. Mental Mouse says:

    Mind the ‘fro.

    (And the comment dates 😉 )

  49. Em says:

    This is SO obviously photoshopped.
