  2. This girl I knew in college who entered a Poor Claire convent where they shaved it off.

  3. Well, there’s no accounting for taste, and at various times in our life Milady has worn it short, curly, frizzy, ponytail, straightened, and down to her butt. And I’ve liked it each way.

    That’s because, of course, I’m totally prejudiced and have always found her beautiful, even when she wakes up in the morning with pillow scars or wet and bedraggled from a rainstorm.

    But for framing a face I could easily fall for if I’d never met my wife, here’s a perfect style/length:

    (Remember, my standards for female beauty are deeply rooted in East Asia.)

  16. Apo, turning 40?

    Yannow what _I’d_ like if I was turning 40?


    Happy Birthday anyway ya pup. I suppose you really get hit with the “Here’s your birthday and Christmas present together rip I’ve gotten all my life. (The 19th for me.) Numbah 3 grandson’s is the 12th, so he won’t get that treatment.

    Oh. Hair. Best hair.

    Best hair ever was on the first girl I fell in love with, long ago and far away. But Ronnie Lake and Ms. Page are a close tie for second.

  17. Happy Christmas Eve Birthday Apo!! 40 eh? HMMMMM

  18. ^ Be pretty tough to beat that Debra Jo Fondren up there, so I won’t even try.

    But let’s face it: For a guy, I have the best hair. I mean, it’s soft and curly, and still mostly red, and still mostly there, and the broads just love to run their fingers through it. They can’t help themselves, and that’s even before I whup-out the Brylcream©.

    I had a landlady once who offered me a month’s free rent for my hair so she could make a wig out of it. No shit. Naturally, I turned her down. It would be like selling a chunk of the Smithsonian Hair and Space Museum. You just can’t do that.

    But if anybody ever wants to come over and feel of it, I usually leave odd-numbered day’s between 2:00 – 4:00PM open just for that.

    My hair rocks.

  20. For guys, I’d have to pick David Tenant. Dr. Who #10.

    For gals … it’s too hard to choose just one. So many women have fabulous hair, and I’m not even talking Hollywood or the Clairol models on the boxes at Walmart. (sigh)

    Know what bugs the crap outta me? Nearly every woman is frequently POed at her hair. It’s too long, short, thick, thin, straight, wavy, curly; wrong color, wrong texture, blah blah blah. Shut up please. Your hair is better than ours 90% of the time. And the young ones, blessed with the vibrant vitality of youth, chop theirs to hell and gone and dye it 100 different shades of freak. And then burn it to dust with irons. Insanity. And then the early middle aged ones decide they’re too old to wear it long or sexy, so out come the scissors. And then there’s the “I’ve got a steady man so I don’t have to bother anymore” thing, which is almost as evil as the “I just broke up from a long term relationship, so … HASSAN CHOP!!” attacked-by-a-rabid-lawnmower look.

    Leave. Your. Hair. Alone. Just keep it clean, gently.

  22. Our first dogs after we were married were Schipperkes. They lived long lives, but are long gone. Recently a new Skip has come into our home because his owner had cancer. I can sink my nose into that dog’s neck and be transported back almost forty years. Schipperkes have the best smelling hair ever.

  27. Is the question the best or the longest? I was looking around for something worth watching on the teee vee the other day and an add for old country music albums was on. Those 50s’ & 60′s male and female singers had some snazzy hair styles. Almost as bad as todays but just the opposite and still full of goop.

    Comment by geezerette — December 24, 2012 @ 9:03 am

  28. Not one single mention of this hair?

    Oh, you said best.

    Never mind.

  29. Now that’s quite the dooo— hey what about The Donalds?

    Comment by geezerette — December 24, 2012 @ 9:56 am

  30. ^ Speaking of Crystal Gayle, I slightly knew this gal in Gatlinburg who was one of what I called The Fabulous Newman Sisters. There was four of them, and they were all Fabulous in different ways. This one had the Crystal Gayle hair all the way down to almost her ankles. Real purty too.

    The youngest one was 19, had everything a man could ever want, both upstairs and downstairs, and she was downright friendly too.
