Last week was great for people watching. People who don’t work or don’t work the day shift are interesting, especially the men. People have shed their heavy winter coats (for the most part) so we get to see style (I say that loosely).
There is a new man-do. Just as I was getting used to the man bun, they have introduced this new cut. The sides and back are shaved and there is a big floof on the top. Not a little floof, but a big one. It needs strong gel setting lotion to keep it sticking straight up. I was fascinated and got more than one hairy eyeball because of my stare.
The beloved husband refuses to change from the hair style he has had for the past 50 years. He did give up the mutton chops and shortened it up a bit as style changes but he’s not into funky.
I also saw all the colors on women’s hair. I’m not opposed weird colors on hair but you need to do it right. You can’t buy a bottle of pink dye and think you will be gorgeous. It has to fit your skin tone and work with your hair color. And moderation people! You don’t need to do the whole head! I saw one woman about a year ago who had a light blue streak in her short blonde hair. If I would look like that I would do it. It was a thin streak, not a blotch. She was a stylist so she knew how to do it. (And yes, I told her how great she looked!)
After bashing the young folks from my gym who have to park closest to the front door to go in and exercise, I did something similar. I went to our local big mall. I had two errands on different ends. One was in the “lifestyle center.” That is a section where you get rained on to buy stuff at outrageous prices. The other was in a department store in the old section at the other end. I first parked in front of the lifestyle shop, did my errand, and then moved my car around to the department store. I laughed at the irony that I had walked earlier in the day for exercise but now I was pinched for time and had to get motorized!
Have you seen any crazy people lately?
