I'm a non fan of Trump's hair maneuvers, but I see Theresa May looking similar. In both of these cases, I think it is none of my business, often called beeswax. Curious, though.

There are many posts going on in the internet about natural hair and people who work it not naturally..

Me, I was a naturally curly kid with brown hair venturing toward auburn. Time has changed all that. I have only been to a salon once since I left California, resulting in bad boo boo, possibly my fault for choosing a low end place. On the other hand, I've had good help in those kind of places. So... I've cut my own hair for at least ten years. I'm not all so bad at it by now.

Also, I have had a tendency over years to flit from long to short and back again, unrelated to season. Thus this summer, I'm a streaker, still some brown, white pushing for room. The long hair is getting quite long. I may carry it through winter or cut it to short in October.

This is amusing to me, my own hair is a kind of set of fat feathers, but I remember a woman in my last California town who had healthy white hair way past her shoulders, more towards her waist, and she wasn't young. She had a way of ruling the world around her.

And you?

I buzz it at the 7mm setting.
If I'm feeling crazy, I'll let it go to 9.
The sides and back are grey, the top is flesh-tone.

@George,
I've been wearing my hairs unparted as a child, later parted and now departed. 2 Cents

@ossobucotemp,
I've always been uncomfortable with strangers cutting my hair. I've always sought out a friend or a friend of a friend who could do it for me. Sometimes this was not possible so I would suffer through a visit to a barber or salon.
Through most of my thirties and forties I just let it grow.
Then a couple of years ago my wife bought me on of those Wahl electric hair cutters and now I can just snap on the #4 comb and swipe it across my head a few times and I'm neat and trimmed. I should've done this twenty years ago!

Before being herded off to kindergarten circa mid 1960's, one of my favorite things was to go to Emma's Beauty Salon with my mother. No one but Emma could touch her hair.

It was a twice weekly event, no kidding. The woman who birth me was incapable of washing her own hair. I saw and had to clean up the results once when she attempted it at home. Saturday were for the full treatment, because that was going out to dinner night. Mid week was a comb out. I still went with her Saturdays up until about 2nd grade.

I would sweep hair, sniff chemicals and read movie magazines (I was the only 6 year old I knew who was au courant with the Liz/Dick/Eddie triangle).

Each month I would excitedly wait to see the "Hair Style of the Month" on the wall calendar.

I remember choking on a wintergreen hard candy while looking at something like the 3rd one.

ACCKH!

Wasn't she the one, who was high on LSD, who later went blind from staring at the sun for long,long periods of time?

I so wanted to look like her

50 years later, my hair naturally goes into those big flips but that's still all I've got

@Miller,
Why are you so insulting? You think it's cute? She and her husband did a lot of good works for our small city.

I think I saw something like this from North Korea; a list of government approved hairstyles!

@TomTomBinks,
You maid me laugh.

I'm considering a cut. I have enjoyed having long white/gray/brown hair, but I'm tired of floating hair in my place... especially in the kitchen.
