I just turned 34 and decided to treat myself to a haircut for my birthday. While I was sitting in the chair I noticed that I have way more grey hair than I had previously thought. Way more. Since I don’t really want to get involved in a long-term coloring plan at this point in my life (and I’m still a little traumatized by that asshole at Gene Juarez who talked me into a red “Rachel” cut in 1995) I have decided to reexamine my options in terms of accessorizing.
In light of the fact that my head is so huge that I actually have wondered if I was born with a birth defect that my mother has chosen to keep secret, I generally don’t wear hats. They don’t fit and they don’t flatter. So I’m thinking about delving back into the world of the silk head scarf. The scarf and I had a brief affair when I was in my 20s but I think I was too young to pull it off. I am ready to try again.
But the question is this:
Will I look glamorous, like Joan Crawford in Sudden Fear?
Slightly insane, like Little Edie?
Or more like this?
On second thought, Miss Clairol may be getting herself a new customer soon.
