Bad Hair Boutique

Updated on January 6, 2013

Welcome to the Bad Hair Boutique

Let's face it, whether you're a politician, a preacher, a poet, a pop star or a've probably experienced at least one bad hair day in your life.

This light-hearted lens pays homage to funny follicles, hilarious hairstyles, and laughable locks, not to mention a few ridiculous rugs that probably should never have seen the light of day.

Frankly, if an interesting alien can't have an interesting hair do, I don't know what the world is coming too!

A very big thank you to the wonderful people at Squidoo for this delightfully posh "Purple Star" Award.

Who says it's just celebrities with weird hairdos?

Trinity Tidpit, a delightful dancing damsel, decided that a horrid hairstyle was just the thing to add a bit of pizzazz to her otherwise placid personality.

Bad Hair Day
Bad Hair Day

Yup, another cult classic with "Weird Al" Yankovich!


What do you mean I'd look better with a brushcut, ponytail, or dreadlocks?


He wondered why if he had a head full of split hairs, how come the hairs on his arms and legs didn't get split ends?

This Was No Average, Ordinary, Ho-Hum Day...


As, Juan Zanibar Slothrop Schlaffenfuss III awoke from his six-water-grog and scandal-broth-filled slumber, he realized that today was no average, ordinary ho-hum day in the universe of all things great and small.

One look in his full-length "mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all", revealed that it was going to be one of those days that lacked a good deal of lick-for-leather, (judging from the leave-in-the-lurch love-locks dangling from his pointy pinhead that frankly did little if anything to cover his susurrant silk shorts).

Who Says Mermaids Can't Mess Up Once In A While?

Even those who emerge from the sea to casually braid their shiny wet whatevers into a thick coil with a hibiscus on the end also have bad hair day every now and then.

That's why mermaids mask their horrible hag hair days by showing a colorful bit of cleavage to curious blokes.

Some males hide their misbegotten mop under a ball cap or a hoodie.

Others, most notably haggard head honchos, prefer to conceal their tresses along with their trusses under a tried-and-true tool, either a tantalizing toadstool or a titillating trenchcoat.

The choice of tool depends on the availability of the amusing accoutrement or the degree of unsightliness associated with one's frightful state of fuzz.

Thrumster Throckmorton prided himself in his linear thinking and his lubberly locks.

Wait Until I Get My Hands on that Frigging Faux Pas Fairy!

Hecate, Goddess of Grunge & Diva of Doormats was having one heck of a day in Hades. Her hair was mess after having to jump into the sea after the fall of Troy, which meant that she was hardly a hip hag if she couldn't even look good to a bunch of screaming siblings, sad shepherds, and sea-sick sailors seeking her advice.

Frankly, how could she be counted upon to help those dying to enter into the "Otherworld", if she couldn't even control the curls in the middle of her forehead let alone those freaky follicles giving her grief on the top of her head?

Tune in next week for the solution to this discombulated drama queen's dilemma when we explore the tantalizingly tasteless topic of, "Witch Shampoo is best for you?"


CLASSIFIED AD: Merry-minded mustached munchkin male seeks lithe, blithe, bimbo blond for walks and rumpled hairdos. Enjoys simple meals (prepared in neither your home nor mine). Must be willing to explore alien territory such as follicle faux pas, troglodyte temples, and frosted mugs of whoopee.

What Lies Behind Those Frazzled Follicles?

Constanza Zermattress, the contralto from Amplochacha wondered if her Carpet Knight in Shining Armour, or perhaps a foot-loose-and-fancy-free frog looking for a merry maven might overlook her Bible Belt blurts, pathetic pet peeves, and slightly frazzled follicles long enough to see that she was positively staggering with poise in a monosyllabic motormouth sort of way. -- From "A Day in the Life of a Bad Hair Babe".

Source: A sprinkling of mixed metaphors and witty words from The Disheveled Dictionary by Karen Elizabeth Gordon.


Elvira Muckworth, (known to many as the delightful Duchess of Boom & Doom who enjoyed the benefits of malicious joy at another's suffering or misfortune), did not realize that playing with an electric toaster and hairdryer in the bathtub could cause split ends and hasten one's journey to the black void (affectionately referred to as the "Kingdom of Crumbled Cookies").

Einstein's Mum thought surely a mathematical makeover would improve his image:

"But, Albert, it's your grad picture.

Can't you do something about your hair? Styling gel, mousse, something...?"

What do you mean you don't like my bodacious bird's nest?

You cannot prevent the birds of sadness from passing over your head. But why on earth let them make a nest in your hair?

      In my teens I once left the dye on my hair for too long and it developed a green tint. I ended up cutting it short short. Congratulations on the purple star.
