My daughter hates her hair. I have stopped listening to my wife's complaints. Both have naturally curly hair...both want straight hair. It does no good to point out that woman with straight hair pay a fortune to have curls.
I must listen to repeated complaints from my daughter about her childhood hairstyles. I thought/think that she always looked adorable. Little did I know... Hearing her criticism of parental hair abuse, one might think that we had beaten her or deprived her of food. I wonder if we caused permanent psychological damage, which has led to her current fixation.
It's only hair. It is easily changed. I'm happy that she does not complain about her nose.
My wife spent over one hour at the hairdresser yesterday. It is such a cliche, but I don't see a difference. Perhaps, it is a bit shorter: with the curls it is difficult to tell. I do not mind if no one notices that I have been to the barber (no "hairstylist" for me). I can't be bothered with hairstyles, and am happy with a Turkish barber that does everything the old way. I have had the same style since at least age 13 or 14. I'm boring. As already mentioned, it's only hair.
