Celine Dione with her 6-year-old son with his long locks (in this month's British Hello magazine) got me thinking about hair. My Dad and his sister both wore long locks until he grew into big boy pants. He was always embarrased by this but in some ways it is very old school. I wanted to call attention to this famous Renoir hanging in the MET. The child on the right is the little boy of the family in long locks and a dress.
Prince Albert's nephew brought a girl to a big Monaco function who raised eyebrows with her hairdo, below.
For me, I've been thinking about grey (hair) matters which I'll tackle later. But on hair matters? Everyone has an opinion. It is the most dramatic personal style statement. There is nothing worse than a bad hair day or a bad haircut. Native Americans understood the power of hair. When I moved to Houston I was horrified with a hideous haircut. When I moved to NYC I made sure to ask for help in getting a fabulous hair person. Oh, hair matters. It really does.
If you asked me what comes to mind when I think of Edwards, it is this video. Does that tell you the power of media in our culture?
