The most defining characteristic of nearly every woman is the manner and style by which she wears and cares for her hair. And fortunately today’s woman has more opportunities to achieve the look she seeks at the various stylists who offer services at reduced rates to customers who take advantage of Groupons for great services at reduced rates.
Guys who depend upon razors, shaving cream and clippers often may find the attention paid to hair styles to be either a major expense or a form of narcissism. Yet at the same time we find our attention uncontrollably drawn to those ladies who have their hair adorned in a manner that truly becomes them and defines both their identity and their personality. Even a still photo of a woman’s hairstyle and color can go far towards leading one to sense what may constitute her personality and character. I personally recall the time when my mother went and drastically changed her hairstyle. I was a young boy at that time and I felt a sense of betrayal when she got her “make-over” as she called it. That feeling of betrayal took some time to pass. She seemed to be a different woman who I thought was suddenly almost a stranger.
Similarly, when a good friend’s wife opted to dye her hair a different color I recall his telling me over coffee how he suddenly felt she had “changed.” He couldn’t quite put his finger upon it, but he felt suddenly uncomfortable in her presence. Later, after she changed the color again to one more neutral grey in tone – he seemed to feel more at ease again as if they were returning together after a separation. I last saw them enjoying their eldest daughter’s 10th wedding anniversary.
My hair is neither colorful nor crowning, which may explain why I tend to closely observe the appearance and attractiveness of the hairstyles of those ladies in my life. And I particularly find endearing the efforts women make to define themselves and their personality through the appearance and styling of their hair. It makes me feel warm inside when I see a lady who shows her self-confidence and awareness when she is truly happy and satisfied with her hair and her appearance. Which is why I encourage them to take advantage of the Groupons offered for services currently offered by local health and beauty salons.
