Younger Hair...

I was flopped out on the couch yesterday afternoon during my three o'clock slump and thought it would be a good oppotunity to relax and sort out the mail since we'd just returned from O'ahu.

There were piles everywhere. I usually rifle through them with the expediency of the mail carrier, but yesterday, I took my time and looked at the quirky ads, magazines, and flyers.

You know those packets that have coupons stuffed into them? Or little pamphlets with the best deals in town. Well...

in one of said pamphlets, I found an interesting advertisement... so worry no more ladies....

Younger hair is here AND, not only does it give you beautiful tresses rich with REAL hair in an assortment of lengths and colors, but the wig has (and I quote) "an incredible face-lifting feature that makes you look ten years younger."

Can you believe this?

A wig that has a face-lifting feature?

It feels like society has stooped to a new low, doesn't it? If a face lift will make you feel better, go for it. But in a wig? What happens when you take the wig off and your stretched skin falls forward like that of a bloodhound? I know, not a pretty visual.

Their website is www.faceliftingwig.com in case you want to check it out.

Why can't we be beautiful just the way we are? Why can't society value women (and men) for their wisdom instead of trying to make the norm of fifty, sixty, and seventy year-olds look like surgical experiments? Go figure...Don't get me wrong, I'll drive you to the hospital to have a facelift, but if you're going to be pinning your skin under a wig, I think I'm busy that day :)

I have to chuckle at your colorful description of removing that wig of miracles. The shock of seeing your lovely tresses disappear at the same time your face fell "like a bloodhound" would be enough to "wig you out" for sure!
But I ran across a product I am considering.: it's spanx for your upper arms! So, next time I wave good-bye, you'll be surprised to no longer be blown away by the billowing wind of my underarms merrily flapping away. What will they think of next?!

Eileen, Im fine with underarm spanx! And, I'm afraid to think about what the next scheme is! Thanks for your comment.

Hey! Wait a minute! I just ordered one of those wigs! You mean it's a scam! Dang it! Quick! Where can I get an underarm Spanx!

Cindy said...

Kelly - It's amazing to think of the things they've come out with to hold us together--and let us know how not good enough we can become!

Cindy said...

Camille, Let me know when you wig comes in--I'm certain there must be a money-back guarantee, dont' you think?--not on the holding back of drooping facial skin, but the quality of the hair! Thanks for visiting!
