If you've lived in, or have driven very fast through the South you will be very well aquainted with these two hairdos. You'd think all the hairdressers who learned to inflict these unspeakable acts on a woman's head would have all died out or retired by now, but nooooo, I saw a helmet-head exactly like blondie over there at the supermarket last month. I have the feeling this model has the same exact hairdo to this day.
