One more woman over age 50, 60, or whatever your personal cut-off is, who insists upon wearing that long, cookie cutter hair style. Number one, those long tresses are not her own, of course. Number two, they are available to everyone with a credit card and they can be attached in several ways. None of those ways would let her sleep, comb her hair, style it or do anything except pose for the camera.
You can buy them by the strip, the plug, the wisp, the total wiglet, and a lot of other options. Originally they were attached to the rest of your hair with glue.
That is a disaster waiting to happen if you try to leave them in. Your hair would suffer enormously since some of the glue would release, some would not. Some of your own hair would remain; some would not.
Then they were improved to have the tresses mounted on combs, strips with barrett type fasteners or you have an option of weaving them into your own tired tresses.
The cost for a good job could easily eat up $3,000 in the beginning. Now they are very competitive and you can buy a fairly good, re-usuable job for under $300. Naturally, you can opt for anything from natural hair to feather duster ‘made of.’ (But not for the afore mentioned $300.)
None of that is what really bothers me. It is not my money, not my preference, not my choice. BUT I am sick of seeing them paraded across my television screen in herds all day every day. Wait, amend that to read ‘when I have the television ON.’ OK, every day and most of the night. I want to throw them a hair brush, a comb or a pair of sisscors but I just know that would damage the screen. That would be another thing up with which I would not put.
But for little girls playing dress up, I am all over that. It is meant for them. In hopes of getting this out of their system before they walk down the aisle, it has a purpose. Even if the young women want to endorse it, that is fine too. But I would like for them to use a little creativity with the styling. They just can’t be all Barbie Dolls with the same color and style. AND they can’t be over your own personal designated age range. Remember, every witch you ever saw a picture of had that long hag, hair style, coupled with a hat.
If you were asked to identify a new face on television, it would not be enough to say “You know, the one with the long blonde curls, hanging half way between the collar bone and the boobs.” That one.
