It's Your Hair And Your Money If you have your hair done by an expert each week, don't let him stampede you into an unbecoming hair style just because it's the latest thing. If you have found a style which flatters you, stay with it. It can be brought up to date with slight changes every three or four months. But to wear a hair style that does nothing for you is foolish. Explain to your styli.«t that it's your hair an dthat you will call the shots. Once he understands this, he'll most likely go along with you. After all, it's money in his pocket. - NEA.
