But one feature made them all stick out... The perm! As I looked around the restaurant, I noticed that all the elderly women had the same perm. I thought, it's not very often that you see an old women with long hair. And if you do, she would more than likely be considered the eccentric cat lady.
As I continued to look around, I noticed that the generation of women below them had short hair. You know, like the Hillary Clinton look. And the generation of women below them had "Big" hair.
For some reason, we have a set social standard of women's hair that I would like to change. There is nothing wrong with you ladies that have long hair as an old lady. I won't consider you the "crazy" cat lady. Just let it all hang out!
