I’m not sure if I’ve ever had a real bad hair day or a particularly good one. Most days it just seems pretty average. When someone cuts my hair, the person will usually hold up the mirror behind me and show me the same look that I’ve always had. Great, let’s move on.
I recall Dave Barry saying that most guys looked in the mirror when they were young, decided they were average-looking and never gave it a second thot. I understand the concept.
However, my sources tell me that a bad hair day can significantly affect some people’s lives. Maybe you need to first have a great hair day … or care a lot more.
Checking in with some wildlife, I noticed that not all their hair days seemed the same.
This lovely lady is well groomed and looking pretty good. However, somehow she missed those three long, annoying hairs growing out of her chin. Maybe if no one tells her, everybody’s day will go a lot better.
Kids will often have messed up hair from playing hard and not being particularly focused on grooming. In the animal world, it must be the same way. This young black bear looks a little dishevelled but doesn’t seem to mind one bit as it wanders over to the other side of the road. I’m betting it’s far more concerned about putting some meat on those bones.
This mountain goat might have decided to go for the tussled look or maybe it got wet and was still drying. Regardless, the look wasn’t carried out everywhere so it appears a little off. Maybe this is a bad hair day in their world? Still it’s not shy about assuming a model pose and there is something appealing about that shaggy look.
Now if you really want to see bad hair, this mountain goat takes the prize. You have to admire the self-confidence to go out in public with significant hair missing – caught between coats you could say.
Hmm, maybe I better check the mirror just to be safe.
