The Low Down On Green Living
April 1st, 2008
In keeping with our undying commitment to sustainability, we have decided to cover the five hair-dos with the most staying power. Stick to these styles and you’ll reduce your net hair-do impact on the planet.
The Dorothy Hammil Wedge
Oh Dorothy, you’re so fine. You’re so fine you blow our minds.
In the 1970s Dorothy skated out onto the ice and into our hearts. And hair salons all over the world were swamped with requests for the “Dorothy Wedge.”
Some people claim that Katie Holmes/Cruise is trying to bring this one back right now. We really hope she is successful. Rush out and get one for yourself today.
The Jackie-O Flips
Style Queen par excellence, Jackie O flipped her hair out in the 60s and we’ve all be trying to copy it ever since. It looked great then, it looks sassy now.
Throw on a pillbox hat, fake pearls and some big ole google glasses and pretty soon you’ll be stopping traffic. Which also slows global warming– so two green stars for you, girl.
You know this one well. You likely had one. A mullet is short and cropped on the top and wavy and stringy in the back. There are many different types– the femmullet (for the ladies), the skullet (bald on top), and the chullet (mullet on a child).
If you go to Southern Massachusetts or Rhode Island you’ll see roughly 2.4 mullets per 5 local residents. Take notes.
Texas Big Hair (Also Known as the New Jersey Tease)
This one was “big” in the ’80s…often seen on Dynasty and most day-time soaps. Dolly Parton has also been working big hair with great success since at least the ’60s. She shows no signs of giving up on it.
The best way to get big hair is to flip your hair upside down as you blow dry it, then flip back up and tease the H*ll out of it. Pay particular attention to the bangs– they will need extra teasing and several strong blasts of AquaNet.
