Hair: if you have it, you spend all kinds of time and money (if you are a girl or a guy who even remotely cares about his appearance) taking care of it: washing it, styling it, purchasing products for it.
Celebrity hair can be a trademark: remember the Jennifer-Anniston inspired “Friends Haircut”, or then there’s Don King, Elvis, Mister T and the “Beiber” .
Your hairstyle can also represent a lifestyle: long-haired hippies, bald-headed skinheads, punk rockers sporting mohawks, military buzz cuts, “rasta” dreadlocks, etc.
And rumor has it that blonde’s have more fun, brunettes have more brains and red-heads are more “sultry”.
A colleague of mine (who used to own a hair salon in Newnan GA) passed on an interesting article on why the subject of hair fascinates us, citing several cultural examples of the significance of hair from around the world. An interesting and informative read. After all, hair is important!
