While sitting at Sam's Club and waiting to have tires installed, I observed people, and noticed one thing. There is no such thing as styled hair anymore. It's almost like unkempt, plain, straight or ponytailed hair is the norm.
However, I did see some stand outs. When one woman with long hair turned around she had male pattern baldness and a shiny chrome dome. Didn't seem to bother her at all. A little blonde boy about 10, with BRIGHT blue bangs sat down in the snack bar for pizza. A teenaged girl had Arial the Mermaid red hair.
One last thought, the woman who sat down beside Bill had so much facial hair above her lip, it looked like she had a thick caterpillar crawling across her face. I reached up and rubbed the space between my nose and upper lip. Whew, safe.
Hair, nobody seems to care.
I think writing could be compared to hairstyles. If you have to gussy it up too much, your writing may sound artificial, unnatural. Best to say it in plain words than to embellish too much.
