Not a Good Look


I know, it’s Saturday, but I don’t want to save this for a sick day because believe it or now I always hope the each time I do a sick day post I always hope it will be the last. I’m tired of getting sick over stuff.

With this said I have to vent about one thing, and that is people who wear their hair up like Pebbles Flintstone or people who always wear their hair in a tight pony tail. Trust me folks, this isn’t a good look. It’s OK if you have to keep control of your tresses on occasion, but tying that mess up every day is pointless. Why not just get a comfortable hair cut where your hair looks good and doesn’t constantly get in your way.

As someone who had several stints with long hair, if you have to tie it back every day you have a problem not only with functionality but with looks as well. Hack it the hell off.

I would desperately love to, Guy, but my husband would commit Seppuku.
Believe me, I would LOVE to get rid of all this dead weight.

Putting aside your hair rant, I am cracking up about your reference to Pebbles Flintstone. You never cease to amaze me.

And did you draw that picture of Pebbles?

Wow, I'd hate to have someone make me keep my hair.

I hate guys with long hair that do this - they are usually also wearing leather vests, have giant beer bellies, are over 40 and ride a Harley. Makes me shiver with envy for the women in their lives.

Yeah, I want to know what it is with these guys who insist that the "little woman" keeps her hair long! My personal opinion is that they are Neanderthals who secretly harbor the intention of dragging her around by her hair!

ROFL, I totally agree, Anon. I had hair well past my shoulders a few months ago and chopped it off to chin-length layers (oh, how my friends warned me against it!). I love it, and most of my friends have warmed up to the new 'do. The antiquated rule about long hair being equated with femininity is crap, and I can be just as girly with spiked hair, dammit.

Now if only someone could fill me in on what the big deal is with painting nails, I'd be thrilled. Because I'm over that particular look.

Guy - grow your hair back ! Beth, Guy? Draw? BWAHAHAHAHAH

Painted nails. There is another rant for your next sick day, Guy. I am sure you have some pearls of wisdom about those !

I have long hair and wear it up at work and only at work. I don't want to be leaning over someone and have them bleed or worse vomit on it.

Besides I have not found a short cut that I like. The new look where it is longer in front and shorter in back make peoples heads look lopsided. I have not seen one person that has yet to look good on.

Sorry I didn't come back to reply, but I spent the day in the woods yesterday.

Mel, Do it, he's already used to all the crazy stuff you do. He'll get over it. Tell he the advantage is that he'll feel like he's sleeping with someone new.

Beth, No, I didn't draw her. I don't have any colored pens, pencils or crayons. It's best I don't.

Lori, ahem...remember you don't date guys...

Anon, some guys don't like change. They even resist new underwear.

Jaggy, nails, that a whole other post I've been meaning to do for years. I don't get it either. Too claw like.

Oh, Auntie with the degree in Art History picking on my art skills...well you're right, and my penmanship sucks as well.

Nulaanne, I'm not against long hair, just people who never let it down. Professionally it can be a safety issue. JUst unleash it when you punch out.

What about if you thread your ponytail through the little space above the adjustment strap on a baseball hat? Thats a hot look while driving an SUV and talking on a cell wouldn't you say?

Uh-oh, Old Indian has long hair inna pony tail(when I'm ambitious enough to do it) and my one white anscestor, an Irish/French paternal great-granddad gave me a neat, really long, beard in which to let birds nest. Nothing ethnic, just a lifetime of short hair & usually shaving has turned me into a hair bum. At least I keep it washed & combed:)

Mo3 and Mike, all I'm saying is what's the point if you don't let it down. I've had long hair several times during the last 20 years, mostly because I don't enjoy making appointments to get it cut, and the places where you don't need an appointment usually suck.

LMAO!!!! "he's already used to all the crazy stuff you do."
He doesn't force me to keep it, he begs me to keep it. We've been together for fifteen years, so he's seen every crazy haircut in the land on my head, and has decided long hair's his favorite.
What the hell. It doesn't hurt me, so I keep it.

Just let it down every now and then and remember there is an age when long hair looks stupid. You aren't there yet, but think about it in ten years.
