When Bumpits Go Bad

I have the best blog readers in the world.  Seriously!  I love getting your emails and sweet notes.  Keep them coming!

I must warn you that this is most likely going to be one of the most ridiculous blog posts you’ll ever read from me.  Don’t hold it against me.  I’ll try to do better next time.

I currently have one huge regret in my life……getting rid of my Blackberry.  So help me, Dave Ramsey, when that car’s paid off the first thing I’m getting back is my Blackberry!  There are just too many great photos out there just waiting to be blogged about.  Photos that need to be taken under the guise of  texting on my phone when in fact I’m sneaking a shot of a chick that belongs on the People of Wal-Mart website.

For instance, I really thought that the whole Bumpits craze was over.  I guess the folks in Arkansas didn’t get that memo because I have seen some horrendous Bumpits hairdos in the last few weeks.  The only thing worse than wearing a Bumpits, is wearing it poorly.  So, I came up with my own Bumpits Top 10 list.

EDIT:  For those who don’t know what Bumpits are, their website says this about them:  “Bumpits self gripping, leave in volumizing hair inserts give you instant volume and let you feel confident and beautiful , like you just stepped out of a professional salon!”  I think I’d like to change their slogan “From Flat to Fabulous” to “If my bouffant looks too good to be true,  it probably is.”

Top 10 Reasons You Shouldn’t Wear a Bumpits

1.  When you have to use 2 cans of Aquanet in addition to your Bumpits to achieve your desired look…..you shouldn’t be wearing Bumpits.

2. If you walk around like you’re in a full body cast because you’re afraid of losing your Bumpits…..you probably shouldn’t be wearing one.

3.  If you look like a Klingon while wearing your Bumpits…..you really shouldn’t be wearing one.

4.   If your Bumpits make it look like there’s someone standing behind you….

5.  If security at Chicago O’Hare has to strip search your mane…..

(Contest time!  How many Bumpits are hiding in this chick’s hair?)

Here are reason 6 through 9:

And #10.  Because Sarah Palin is the only one that can really do Bumpits any justice.

If there are any other women that can make Bumpits look great, I’ve never seen them.  But that’s the point, right?

  1. Back in the day we used to try to achieve the bumpit look (called it the poof). It often required up to an hour to get it just right. Of course the poof was accompanied by big bangs and lots of hairspray. Funny how styles change. Hopefully I’m not doing anything right now that I’ll look back and cringe at 🙂 Thanks for the funny blog post!

  2. Unfortunately, I was young in the REALLY “big hair” days. I never needed bumpits. Enough teasing and Ultra Super Aquanet was enough! I have a picture where my poof was about 4
    inches tall in the front. Oh my!

  3. LOL! I actually saw an infomercial the other day for a special “volumizing comb”! I mean, child, I knew how to “rat” my hair with any old comb (or even my fingers) when I was 6 years old!
