Murdo Girl…Styling

I went to a new hair salon and looked at hairstyle books.

I turned the pages slowly and perused the newest looks.

I really liked the straight styles, but my hair tends to curl.

The next page showed a redhead.

Should I give that a whirl?

One model looked as if she was unable to decide.

She wore long tresses on her left and shaved the other side.

I began to watch the stylists and couldn’t help but stare.

They were waxing lips and eyebrows.

Not a one was styling hair.

They were replacing women’s lashes. Who knew that could be done?

Eyebrows were being threaded. Wow…this place must cost a ton.

I headed for the door. I knew I had to flee.

I was well aware…this place was not for me.

I went on down the street to the place I usually go.

I’m seated in a minute and in five I’m good to go.

I no longer look at books to chose a different do.

I won’t look like them, anyway. They’re all under twenty-two.

    My fav picture is the crown with long tangly wig look. You should bring back that blonde wig style sometime that the crackup reporter wore.

      I had that wig way back when we lived in Denver. I need to look for a new one. I want Yram and Lav to have more adventures.

    I guess I should have been more specific. I was meaning like in the photo you posted.

      Nope 07. My real hair has never been that long. I don’t have that kind of patience.

    Oh if only Mr Latherop could have seen those do’s. Have you ever let your hair grow long? Nice poem.
