We have new equipment

But we are unsure if it now permanently attached to Norma Desmond's hand, or if it is only useful on women who have permanents, or it the period to return it has passed and we're stuck with it.

How Do You Pick Your Shampoo?

Tiara Shampoo by Helene Curtis, Bombay, India.

How do you pick your shampoo? By the shape of the bottle? The colour? Or the sniff-and-choose method?

THHoF and the EU's GDPR

We have this bit-o-business that we feel like we should take care.  "bloggr" is of no help, but we feel like we need to do something, so here goes:

On May 25, 2018, the European Union will begin to enforce something called General Data Protection Regulation, and it will impact how and what data is collected and require permissions, compliance, etc.  This is to protect the information gathered about EU residents and permissions granted, blah, blah, blah.

I say "blah, blah, blah" because you can look the rule up online and get lots of information.  Suffice it to say that The Hair Hall of Fame does NOT collect any information on anyone who visits the blog other than what Google Analytics provides the blog managers in snapshot form, day by day.

Really, Cookie is feeling a bit like Hodor with all of this.

We do not know who comes and visits us, other than how many people stop by and look at a particular post.  This is not a business, so we have no interest in who comes here and from what IP.  We do not know what kind of operating system, we do not, to our knowledge deploy cookies to your computer.  "bloggr - a Google entity - may do so, and you have to take that up with them.

We really would like to be compliant, and since we know nothing about our audiences or their preferences and are not privy to such things, that really takes any contributor out of that loop.

If you find that you have been blocked from the site, contact your National government, or the EU, and give them what-for keeping you from this site.   Shake your fist, no tighter.  Damn them!  That's the spirit.

All kidding aside, though, we really cannot find how this impacts us or you since we have nothing to do with such things.  So we would love to comply and believe that we would because we can't get to the stuff that this covers.

Wish us all luck, then.  This could be nothing, or it can mean headaches for one or all.

With love, always

The first love of Cookie's life, Leatrice, who was hired to care for me a couple days a week after I was born.  She stayed for the next nine years, surrounding me with love, structure, expectations, and confidence.  And when she was done for the day with us, she went to her own family and did even more for them.   Both of her children excelled in the world far greater than Cookie.

This isn't how I remember her best.  In this image, she is all glammed up.  But her hair was always impeccable, and the creation of her stylists at Andre Duval Salon at Severance Center.

She died when I was nine. Unexpectedly. It was my first real loss that hurt my heart, my life, and future.

So this Mother's Day, Cookie acknowledges the first love of my life, my true north, Leatrice Thomas.

If you still can - hug your mother, real or chosen. Remember that feeling.  It can be taken in an instant.

Pure poppcock!

You are as young as you want to feel, and pretty enough as is.

And if you want to become more so, do it for yourself, instead of a man.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't try to better yourself, we can always be better than yesterday.  But do it for the right reasons and happiness is guaranteed.

All that weight from all those wiglets!  1967-68 was a tough year on the neck of many ladies.
