Comments on: The Nape http://www.designmom.com/2012/12/the-nape/ The Intersection of Design & Motherhood Tue, 13 May 2014 13:29:49 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.5.1 By: Pamela Balabuszko-Reay http://www.designmom.com/2012/12/the-nape/comment-page-1/#comment-420601 Pamela Balabuszko-Reay Wed, 12 Dec 2012 16:23:03 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=28294#comment-420601 Can’t believe you just posted on this. The nape of my son Isaac’s neck inspired a long daydream just yesterday. Isaac has beautiful curls and the back of his neck is just being tickled by them since he needs a haircut. I was watching him play last night and just as he looked down at his toys I felt my heart beating out of my chest with love for him. The nape of his neck was making me swoon. I am so lucky our little guy came to us. At Christmas I feel so grateful for the two Birth Mothers who made us a family. I just sat there remembering our first Christmas with two children …finally. I sneak kisses on Isaac’s neck while he is sleeping. The best, yummiest spot.

So warm and sweet smelling. The little dent where the back of the head meets the top of the neck? Sublime.

Perhaps I will attempt to copy you. And I’m with you on craving more updo ideas for shorter hair. Hair blogs: take note!

I was in Paris yesterday and the line outside of Abercrombie is still there. So crazy! Can’t wait to check out the NPR story. Thanks for the link.

I ended up with messy double French twists. (Kind of like pigtails twisted up toward a loose center part.) My hair is curly, so it was ok messy, and I just stuck pins in to hold hair that wasn’t quite long enough. Lots of nape showing, and the hair was out of my way. I really liked it! I would love to find some more updo ideas for shorter hair.

Totally unrelated, I heard a story on NPR today about why Abercrombie is so coveted in Europe and I thought of you! Here is the link:

After two children and the hair loss that ensued, i have the craziest nape ever! My hair on top is wavy, but not curly. BUT, pick up the top layer, and I have crazy corkscrew curls of new hairgrowth all along my nape! It makes wearing my hair up nearly impossible, as it’s not cute corkscrews, it’s craziness! But a baby nape, or a toddler nape – my fav!

I do love the pretty line of a grown up nape and the squishy softness of my wee babe’s.

I do love a bellerina with a few soft pieces peeking around or a barbie ponytail with a sharp line…pretty:)

And when I think of a beautiful nape, I always think of my sister. Her curls cascade just so.

I look like a hairy ape when my hair is up, but sometimes I just don’t care and wear it up anyway.
