Being a common person, I was stood in a long queue in a common person's shop yesterday. I was shocked, stunned and amazed to see that three of the women in front of me had pobs. This hairstyle is sweeping the nation. Well, the streets around where I live, and that's good enough for me.
The pob is the hairdo which seems to have been decreed fashionable about a year ago, but really took off when it appeared on the bonce of Victoria Beckham - trained dancer, former Spice Girl, social X-ray, **fashion designer**, wife of multi millionaire-but-well-past-his-best-but-why-should-he-care-when-he's-that-loaded footballer David Beckham and loving mother to Romeo, Alfa and Nissan Micra.
The hair is cropped in at the nape, and sweeps into a longer length at the front, with a few choppy bits to differentiate it from the sort of hairstyle created by Vidal Sassoon in the mid 1960's.
In the case of all the women I see wearing the new look, their formerly long, ironed hair, with the side parting and the stripey ash blonde, champagne and beige blonde highlights and toffee, honey, caramel, chestnut and bitter chocolate lowlights now looks more or less the same but shorn of length.
It looks as though a little hobgoblin gardener with a little hobgoblin gardener's lawnmower has run amuck in their hair overnight while they were sleeping.
In the worst cases, it also has the effect of making the wearer look like a medieval simpleton.
Another post about bobs along shortly.
Back to the Atwood.
Labels: can I have some cafe au lait highlights please, cheer up darlin' it might never happen, face like a bulldog chewing a wasp, so where are you going on your holidays this year?, social x-rays, WAGS
PS Is the Atwood a rehab clinic?
Vicus - funny, that's exactly what I think about cricket.
MJ - don't mention mullets. There are still a lot of Rod Stewart revival looks about, especially among teenagers around here. *shudder*
Istvanski - he looks bloody frightening. He has been lobotomised and drugged. She does that to all of her staff you know.
5 years ago a poncy hairdresser talked me into having one. I came straight home and cut the sides off.
I could just have used the pudding basin in the first place.
That's probably what they think, anyway ...
Get with the times, man (woman, sorry)! Although I speak from the Chrome-Dome end of the ground, I am sufficiently well informed about matters folicular to be able to tell you that what Vacuous Spice is sporting is, in fact, called "a Reverse Henry V"!
Look out for the St Thomas Aquinas Comb-Over. It will be all the rage next month, darling.
Reg - was it Henry V who said "uneasy lies the head that wears the crown"? I think it was more likely to be Henry IV actually, when he was covered in pustules and scabs and was on his death bed. That's going to be all the rage next month, according to Vogue, along with running sores and the Black Death.
I have to say, I have scoured the latest issue of Vogue and find no reference to running sores or Black Death .... or was that last month?
Billy - I know, it was all quiffs and Brylcreem in your day. Mind you, I'd like to see Posh Spice modelling the psychobilly look ...
Rockmo' - must have been the Californian sunshine which has addled their brains even further. I can remember seeing a TV interview where David B. said "my wife is a very driven woman". Driven to what, exactly? She certainly drives a lot of us up the wall dear.
Ziggi - you seem to be in possession of a personality, so that could be the reason. Footballers seem to end up marrying women who have absolutely no personality.
Is it just me or doesn't that make more sense?
[suckup] ta for the nomination btw. [/suckup]
HE - this is the thing, footballers never marry sporty women. Perhaps they don't like the idea of someone reflecting away from their sporting glory so they tend to fall for charisma free glamour modellles. They standard trophy wife, in other words.
Surly Girl - there's too much Very Shiny Hair about for my liking. It makes me bitter and jealous.
[double_suckup]that's okay re. the nomination. Hope the interview went okay.[/double-suckup]
