As a kid I suppose most had pigtails or plaits as they are called with matching ribbons. My sister combed my hair and there were squabbles. I wanted my hair combed in a particular way even as a 5 year old but she won but I had a frown when I marched to school.
As I grew older there were bob pins on the sides a style that was in vogue during those days. As a working girl I had more freedom which meant out with plaits but hair done in different styles including a French roll.
I so wanted to cut my hair and that happened after I got married. It did a lot of convincing and my husband finally gave in. I had shoulder length hair and those days hair spray was very much in use.
Looking at Princess Diana’s hair cut the way it was pleased me. I went in for that and noticed it suited me. You are right. I do not have those gorgeous looks!!! It has been this way for years and it will not change in a hurry.
