Do blondes have
more fun?

Do blondes have more fun? Here in Fitton, that seems to be the general belief. Half the female population is bleached or streaked. I succumbed to a few highlights myself recently, but I’m not completely convinced. To me, it looks as if I’ve been decorating a window frame and accidentally leant against the white gloss.

There is, however, a very interesting article in the Daily Mail today, written by a journalist called Flic Everett (I would so love to be called Flic Everett) who went the whole hog and became uniformly peroxide.

Everyone’s doing it, she says. ‘Right now, according to Vogue, peroxide is the hottest trend in hair. Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz, Gwen Stefani, Rihanna and model Agyness Deyn have all reverted to blonde after experimenting with other colours.’

This set me thinking. Perhaps those whose popularity is faltering should consider a blonde makeover. It does seem generally true, after all (the Duchess of Cambridge notwithstanding), that those with a passing resemblance to Marilyn Monroe seem to be more successful in life. Think of Boris Johnson. Or that lovely artist Grayson Perry (I do so admire her ankle socks  –  such a statement of the avant-garde).

I asked Berta if she thought I should dye my hair. She said, ‘It look half-dead already.’

As I’ve explained before, her English is not very good.
