Dads, Geeks and Blue Haired Freaks Blog Tour

I thought I’d start my blog posts on this tour with a Hairstyle of the Day. In Dads, Geeks and Blue-haired Freaks my main character, Sadie, gets given a calendar for her birthday called ‘A Hairstyle a Day, One Year of Original Styles’. So I thought I’d do the same on my blog posts. I must add that I haven’t actually tried any of them out!

Wednesday 6th June
Hairstyle of the Day:

I think if we’re mentioning post-rock then we need to look at boys’ hair and so I think today’s hairstyle should be something around bald and beardy like these guys here:



Wow – the iPod play-lists of my characters. I know my characters inside out, but it took me a while to think about what they might be listening to. Obviously Billy has very particular tastes, being an embryonic Post-rock god, but Sadie’s playlist I thought would reflect her character which is understated but stealy and determined. Aunt Lilah – well I thought her taste would reflect her youth – as well as the playlist for her hairdressing salon – so nothing too exciting there…..Here we go:
