There is nothing we like more than giving y’all the chance to win some cool stuff, so it’s time for another caption contest.
We had so much fun reading all of your suggestions last time that we knew we wanted to make it a regular feature.
After I got home from my trip to Nashville, I emailed a couple of different pictures to Sophie so that we could decide which one was begging to be captioned. Ultimately, there was really no question which picture it should be.
I mean check out the look in my eyes. Was it fear or excitement as I watched my hair being teased to new heights by a woman who used to work on the set of “Hee-Haw”?
What is happening here? Am I closer to heaven if I have big hair?
We will pick the two best captions. The winners will receive a copy of Vicki Courtney’s new book, “Five Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter”.
Vicki, I hope that’s okay with you.
Too late if it isn’t.


  1. Got long hair? Glory, Lord, Glory!!
    (based on 1 Corinthians 11:3-15)

  2. BIG Hoodle-Doin’s
    (Don’t know if y’all say this phrase–no idea how you spell it–in TX but my people are from AR/NC and I grew up in KY, so I picked it up somewhere along the way! That was what immediately popped into my head!)

  3. “Y’all want me to do what with this hair?”
    “Oh sweet mercy, I need a blessing and fast.”

  4. High and Lifted Up

  5. “We need to do something with this chunk right here?”
    “Is someone watching her, hello, what’s happening?”–Melanie

  6. “Do not let your hair become unkempt, and do not tear your clothes, or you will die and the LORD will be angry with the whole community.”
    Leviticus 10:6
    You girls were taking scripture to heart!! :)

  7. Brenda Branch says:

    Mohawk anyone!!!!

  8. Amy Thompson says:

    Hair I Am to Worship

  9. A Conversation I Must Have With My Mother: “Gee, Ma, aren’t I too old for you to still do my hair?”

  10. Glory Glory Hair-a-lu-yah

  11. Move over, Beth Moore. My hair is BIGGER than yours!

  12. To see you high and lifted up!

  13. Julie Reid says:

    Honey, everything’s big in Texas. Whatcha’ so worried about?

  14. This reminds me of a line from Steel Magnolias
    “I promise my personal tragedy will not interfere with my ability to do good hair.”

  15. You wore your hair THIS tall in high school?

  16. I’m pressing on the upward way. New heights I’m gaining every day…

  17. “Um, are we sure teasing is REALLY back ‘in’? ‘Cause you know, I want to be sure. I don’t handle change well, and … well… are you SURE?”
    conversely you could go with:
    “Were there teasing combs 2000 years ago?”
    (sung of course to the Travis Cottrell tune)

  18. “What do I have to do to get you to sit up straight?”
    or maybe…
    “This tiny little bottle of hairspray will never do for all this hair. Bring out the jumbo size, please.”

  19. “The higher the hair, the closer to God.”
    Thank you Vickie for the nod to Steet Magnolias! That is one of my top five favorite lines from a movie for ALL time! So true! Love it!

  20. Step aside Minnie Pearl, Melanie is now the girl!!

  21. What happens if she chops of this piece of hair?? Will I look strange???
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  22. “Hair today… Gone tomorrow”
    (Unless you took those styling tips home with you, oh lucky one, having a professional teach you big hair tricks).

  23. “Didn’t I tell you I’m from Texas? There’s no such thing as too big hair!”

  24. “What? You wanted your hair bigger than Beth’s?” :)

  25. God and hair, they both know no limits.

  26. Hee-Haw Hair-do

  27. “Can you get the TV to focus if I hold Melanie’s hair like this?”
    Take care,

  28. Since I’m from the DEEP south…
    “Hey y’all….WATCH THIS !!!!”

  29. “Now if we tease it up to about here, I think that will look mighty nice on camera.”

  30. “Gloom, Despair…what’s she doing to my hair!”
    (You have to sing it like the Hee-Haw song!)

  31. jennifer macleod says:

    “What do you think Vicki should I cut it”?

  32. “Oh y’all, this hair will do JUST FINE with the backcombin’!”

  33. Girl, I don’t mind a bit if you do a give-away w/ the book!
    These captions are hairlarious….

  34. Big Hair for a Big God!

  35. You raise me up, so my hair looks like a fountain!
    *sung to You Raise Me Up*

  36. Behold my hair will prosper. It will be high and lifted up.

  37. “Why do I suddenly feel an affection for Kenny Rogers?”

  38. I vote for “Hair I am to worship”! I laughed outloud at that one!

  39. Uh!! What do you want me to do with this?

  40. Melanie to stylist, “You can’t do anything worse to it than I did in the 80’s.”

  41. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the “hey ya’ll, watch this” caption, that is a hoot!
    Here is mine for the taking-
    the four letter word you never want to hear from anyone touching your hair…

  42. Melanie, “Uh, do you think this will be on the blog?”
    Hair dresser, “yeah honey, it’s goin’ on the tha blawg. Now hold still, lemme do your hair…”

  43. I’m going to get teased.

  44. Another Steel Magnolia’s line:
    “Just tease it & make it look like a brown football helmet.”
    OR from Dolly playing Hannah Montana’s G’ma:
    “When yer pants ar as tight as mine…you gotta have somewhere t’putcha phone.”
    “How bout you give me All Access to that crown of yours.”

  45. Oh, dear…I’m on a roll now with the crowns:
    …casting down your brunette crowns around the platinum sea
    Tease her a poofy crown/
    the girl upon her chair/
    Hark how the video audience sees no hairdo but it’s own (I CAN’T HELP IT!!!!)
    Go down, Melanie-hair
    Way down to Texas land
    Tell ol’
    Let my flatness go!

  46. Last one. I promise. Hopefully.
    Go down, Back Comb,
    Way down in Melanie’s hai-ai-air
    Tell ol’
    Let my flat hair go.

  47. We want to see (clap, clap, clap). We want to see (clap, clap, clap) We want to see Big’s hair lifted high!!
    Hee hee hee, haw, haw. Hee, hee, hee, haw, haw. Hee, hee, hee, haw, haw, haw!!!!
