Coiffe-Semiotics: The Donny Osmond of Hairstyles*

The other day Louise told me:
"Daddy, I like your hair. It's kind of rock but not too rock... sort of regular on the sides and rock in the front."
Three things:
  1. Aw, shucks! Thanks darlin'.
  2. "[R]ock but not too rock...." I'm glad my jam is in keeping with the code of Aesthetic Neutrality.
  3. That's a pretty sophisticated (and pretty hilarious) coiffe-analysis to hear coming from a six-year-old.
Looks like we have another coiffe-semiotician in the house.

* I can't tell if this reference is reasonably straightforward or hopelessly oblique.


  1. Very incisive and cool on the part of your daughter. She has seemed to inherit the hair-festish gene.

  2. Anonymous9:37 AM

    Well, sounds high-time to feature this sophisticated coiffe-analyzer in The Slimbotorialist.

  3. Donny Osmond doesn't have any rock!

  4. * (and to cellar's comment): he's a little bit country and a little bit rock 'n' roll.
