Throw away the conditioner and comb, because having a split-end infested greasy looking wire brush on top of your head is all the rage according to the New York Times’ style pages.
“Politics aside, I love the congresswoman’s guts in not bowing to the vast Blowout Conspiracy. Sometimes she’s got those blonde waves, sometimes she’s got pin-curls, but I’ve never seen her on a Sunday morning chat show with helmet hair. She is a serious, passionate voice for progressive politics in this country, and she’s not afraid to have hair that’s passionate, too.”
“Politics aside,” if I ever got “passionate” with someone whose hair could cause me bodily damage, I would seriously rethink my life choices.
