As a by-product of working for a website thatâ€™s all about hair, I have this habit of paying extra attention to hair whenever Iâ€™m watching TV. Whether itâ€™s commercials, movies or TV shows, I always notice the hairstyle of an actor before paying attention to the plot or what theyâ€™re wearing (although with some of garbage thatâ€™s on TV these days, the hair really is the most interesting thing going on) and one thing that always strikes me about TV hair is how perfect it all is.
Take the ladies from the ABC's program Desperate Housewives for example. They donâ€™t seem to have any problems maintaining perfect hair while still doing their housework, running businesses, being good mothers, wives and friends.
Iâ€™m also a mother and a (non-desperate) housewife and I work and I have friends, but my curls look more frizz-ball than Susanâ€™s (Teri Hatcher) long curly hairstyle, and I donâ€™t have time to pull off one of Breeâ€™s (Marcia Cross) Iâ€™m-just-cooking-in-the-kitchen-but-my-hair-looks-perfect-anyway ponytails.
Is it fair? No! But does that mean I want to see the Desperate Housewives with desperate hair? Hell no!
Even though their hairstyles are just too perfect for me to achieve, it doesnâ€™t stop me from admiring them, wanting them and even attempting to wear the hair styles myself (well, at least a poor non-professional version of the hairstyle).
TV hair might be too perfect but thereâ€™s no denying that it can have a big influence on hairstyles and hair trends. After all, if it didnâ€™t then Jennifer Aniston would be known more for her acting than for â€œThe Rachelâ€. Who is your perfect hairstyle role model? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
