Tuesday, December 11, 2012We say to look good is to feel good.  Or is it, to to feel good is to look good?  My tendency is to believe the latter, but either way, when the looking is good, your hair is good-looking.  No way around it.  Whether it's because hair is top of the heap that is you, and frames your face and your eyes, the windows to your soul; cliches abound.
