The hair is the richest ornament of women.
Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.
I’m not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes because I know that I’m not dumb. I also know I’m not blonde.
Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself.
~Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985
Women…. Who made ’em? God must have been a… genius. Their hair. They say that the hair is everything, you know? Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls, and just wanted to go to sleep forever?
~Bo Goldman, “The Start of an Education,” made popular by the movie Scent of a Woman
If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in a library?
Long, beautiful, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen… I adore hair!
~James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Hair
Gentlemen prefer blondes… but gentlemen marry brunettes.
Only God, my dear,
Could love you for yourself alone
And not your yellow hair.
Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair…
~Susan Polis Shutz
A celebrity is any well-known TV or movie star who looks like he spends more than two hours working on his hair.
A hair in the head is worth two in the brush.
Giving Up Wine
I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.
I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?”
“No, I had to stop drinking years ago”, the homeless woman told me.
“Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?” I asked.
“No, I don’t waste time shopping,” the homeless woman said. “I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.”
“Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?” I asked.
“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless woman. I haven’t had my hair done in 20 years!”
“Well,” I said, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.”
The homeless! Woman was shocked. “Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”
I said, “That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine.”
