I love when women of a certain age pull back their chin-length white locks and secure them with a neat bow just as much as when I see a velvet ribbon around a little girl’s long tresses.
When I was 18 or so, I was interviewed on TV at a sporting event, all because, as the reporter later told me, she liked how I had tied up my hair with a black bow.
But what to do when you’re between, say, 20 and 70, for the slope becomes slippery fast. How does one maintain one’s sense of cool without lasping into Baby Jane territory?
I do like how the hair bow is interpreted in the New York Times (above) and in the Juicy Couture ad (below).
However, I shall not bow to pressure! Might you?
