For the Love of Hair

Old school or fuddy duddy?
That is the question set before me.

I don't understand this whole new hair trend going on here.

Dying the hair in colors that are not normal.
For hair.
Either in streaks or just doing all the hair.

Is it me?
Or is everyone else very bizarre?

Women are dying their hair in colors not normally seen in rainbows and they are getting tons of compliments.
Except one.
This one woman I know said her 18 month old son laughed when she did hers.

I don't know if it is mostly women that are liking this trend.
Most of the compliments seem to come from women.

I don't think it's an age thing because older women than me are saying that it is cute or looks good.

I do know my husband thinks "torrid pink" or purple or teal hair looks stupid.

Apparently, Marge Simpson was ahead of her time.

And I seem to be turning into my mother.

  1. I think it looks stupid too as it goes all multi colored, but to each their own. One color and not fifty in their hair isn't so bad, unless hot pink or bright orange or something. The whole grey hair kick is dumb as well. But nothing is as dumb as colored armpit hair.

    1. I have seen the colored armpit online. Thank God not in real life.

  2. When tastefully done, I like a little streak of color in other people's hair. But not when it is a wild mess which seems to be the majority of them that I see.

  3. A month after we were married, Mrs. Penwasser dyed her hair purple.
    A couple years later, as my aircraft was taxiing to the hangar following a three month overseas deployment, I heard someone say, "Hey! Who's the chick with the pink hair?"
    I knew.

  4. It's not just you, it creeps me out too. I've so often lied and said it looks good, 'cuz I've worked with a lot of youths over the years. When adults do it, that's simply wrong.

    1. Thank you, Robyn. It's nice to know I am not the one woman that hates it.

  5. I saw a little girl with a braid that had three colors. She was a cutie, so it looked good on her. I stick with blonde.

    1. Sorry, Susie. I missed this somehow.
      I like natural colors, plus I am a fuddy duddy, I guess. I don't think children should have dyed hair.

  6. I understand that feeling. Every time I look in the mirror I see my late father. And like him I no longer have any hair.
