Like father like sons, hair swiped over. Like a wave on a beach with the wind blowing it in place. My father with the new york slick like a 80’s greaser. My brother with poofy hair like a poodle as if it was straight hair. Thick as a malt. My mother with hair straight and wiry. A Tint of grey shows the stress we put on her. Her hair as if it were strong enough to pull a train. The impact of hair and image. The amount of salons and barbers, outnumbering everything like a haystack and a needle. The difference hair makes. Change of style is like a change in house. People look at you as if you are a brand new person. Hair has the power of getting a first impression without a word being said. Whether it is facial hair which goes with age or actions or moppy or short hair. The problem with hair… Thick thin, long short, wavy curly or straight, it makes options. What do you want to look like. Every hair style has a image, what image do you want?
