    Oh I love it!! I could just envision Lorraine sauntering out. And the accessories were tres chic! You are an adventurous soul.

    Now that looks great, and fun times.But can you imagine what that looks like on a twelve year old. That’s what my Mum did to me with a Lorraine.Twice she Lorrained me as a child, and twice the television producers wet it all and combed it out. Yish!…and there’s no holding the Lorraine’s back, like they were born to it! A dying breed now, endangered species. My Mum has been weaned off them by finally being convinced that for herself “softer is nicer”.Maybe your Lorraine does kids beauty contests these days.Mum still thinks my hair “needs body”.*sigh*Glad you had a great time. Great post.

    I like you less and less each time I read your posts. You are such a fabulous writer (grrrr…);).

    Anyway, my dad does the barber college haircut thing. I tried once and they gave me a girl mullet (or a lesmullet). Never went back. Now I stick to mediocre overpriced hairstylists.

    Those pictures…that hair…that is just wrong.

    Oh yeah, that is hair.

    As for the CC, as a lawyer she could afford better, too bad for her if she had a hellish experience.

    are you auditioning for a B-52’s cover band?

    girl you rock the updo and only you would wear the swords in your hair.

    my own beauty school experience was far less successful even your initial description of the econo beauty school. my mother, bless her heart, thought it would be a lovely treat for me to go get my hair styled in the days immediately following the birth of my son. she reasoned i would be relaxed by having someone wash my hair for me and then fuss over it.

    i was still of the mindset that no one would be putting scissors to my hair. it was decreed that ashley would practice french braiding long hair since mine reached nearly to my waist.

    keep in mind i french braided my own hair frequently just to keep it out of my way. i could to it without a mirror even….in about 5 minutes.

    ashley managed to get my hair so thoroughly knotted it required two instructors to untangle it in a way that allowed at least a remnant of follicles to remain attached to my scalp.

    an hour later i emerged with a french braid down either side. i use the term loosely since what they actually gave me more closely resembled what a blind chimp whose mother had taken thalidomide may have produced.

    Now I’m all paranoid that my apostrophe use is wrong. I’m bookmarking the Target site just in case. Or, I guess I could go to beauty school.

    Great. Now I’ve got “beauty school dropout” from Grease stuck in my head.

    How do you like that?
    Has anybody seen a dog dyed dark green.
    About two inches tall, with a strawberry blonde fall;
    Sunglasses and a bonnet
    and designer jeans with appliques on it?
    The dog that brought me so much joy
    Left me wallowing in pain.
    Quiche Lorraine.

    ok, ok… this is crazy… so Lorraine the hairdresser does beehives. what hairstyle did the ladies of the B-52s wear? that’s right beehives….

    doo doo da doo…. the truth is out there, Scully

    (*Note – “doo doo da doo” was supposed to be the X-Files theme song, it’s not my fault you’re tone deaf)

    That photo ROCKS!!! Love it!

  11. Mother of Invention says:

    I actually remember babes from the early 60’s wearing that! More spray! The answer to all hair crises!

  12. flutter says:

    WHY do you not have peg leg earrings? Oh the tragedy of a missed accessorizing opportunity!

  13. citizen of the world says:

    Man, I need to get some plastic cocktail swords.

  14. Amy says:

    Personally I’m disappointed there weren’t more eyelash augmentation devices employed although I would imagine it’s safe to assume that you were, at the very least, wearing sensible pumps.

  15. heartinsanfrancisco says:

    Why do girl hairdressers always have names like Lorraine, Heidi,Darlene, Marlene, Barlene, Tawny, Chantal, or anything fake-French?

    The trailer was a nice touch, Barbie.

  16. That Chick Over There says:

    Fancy! Or something!

  17. Lone Grey Squirrel says:

    Great story as always. Say, is there space in that hairdo to store nuts?

  18. kimber the wolfgrrrl says:

    It’s like a high-speed train crash involving the casts of both “Hairspray” and “Pirates of Penzance”! Lorraine, you are awesome!

    The last time I tried the barber-college visit, I just got scissor-stabbed in the side of the head.

  19. Maddy says:

    Fabulous indeed! I would certainly prefer cheapy trainees in the hair department than in the tooth department, but desperate Brits will do anything if unhindered.

  20. Glamourpuss says:

    I love Aveda. Little plastic swords not so much.

    But I also have a fabulous book that came all the way from America about how to recreate vintage hairstyles. I’m not sure if the author was called Lorraine, but I suspect she might be.


  21. pistols at dawn says:

    I was wondering, as I neared the end, what the Aesopian moral would be: that Lorraines of the world will always be there, like a deus ex machina, to save us from ourselves? Possibly that there will always be a place for the old, as long as it’s far away and in an isolated, rarely visited room?

    Yours was better.
