I have this theory that somewhere in our style imaginations we all try to aspire to our favourite film characters and celebrities.
Who do we aspire to be?
I have always really admired [mutters under breath] :
Yes well – she does wear some spectacular shoes.
For a number of months now my husband has been complaining about my hair.
“It looks okay from the front” he would tell me “but from the back it looks flat and weird“,
I can’t see the back of my head.
Figuring out what my hair looks like from behind is a bit like wondering what my behind looks like from behind. A fairly fruitless exercise in self-observation.
So I decided upon a cunning plan and purchased one of those little handbag sized hair style magazines yesterday.
A gauntlet of glossy paper I throw down in front of my husband after we’d bought the ingredients for our favourite Scottish soup.
“Ok – I have heard now for many months what you do not like about my hair. Now it is time to help me choose a hairstyle that you will like“.
With this I sat back with no small amount of self-satisfied rectitude and waited for the choices to be made for me by someone else.
These are the top five hairstyles chosen by my husband:
For a man who previously was a long hair only obsessive I am most impressed with the array of short edgy cuts that he chose.
When John mentioned that one crop was an Elizabeth Taylor crop, I probed a wee bit further.
“Who do you see when you see these these photos?”
This is who he saw (can you match up the celebrity/character with the crops above?):
And this is how I ended up looking.
Like who? Do I know? Not really.
Will I find out?
I hope so.
Meantime the freedom of shedding two years of dead protein symbolically and follically is AMAZING.
