I subscribe to the theory that if a man spends a lot of time on his hair and outfits, he has far too little time to pay attention to you.
Welcome to the late sixties, early seventies. Men were just experimenting with the new “styling comb” and growing their hair as long as their girlfriend’s.
My brother was one of them. He was able to get the Veronica Lake “over the eye” look far better than I was able to do the “Farrah” later on.
Said brother (on the right) accepting a reward for a good deed: Nice hair, huh?
Said “Styling Comb” (or “Hot Comb”)
Soon they figured out that taking the comb off the Styling Comb equaled “blow dryer” and hairstyling took off. No more curlers, no more weekly beauty parlor visits. And women loved it too!
Wait…didn’t Bobby Sherman wear his hair like this? Or was it Ringo?
Anyway…that’s the history lesson for today girls. Men do not wear shower caps. They wear manhoods. Now you know why.
