                   The hair is Paris it total hair,  long, straight, thick and 
                   down or in a chignon raised well off the neck.

                   There is no fuss about hair. It looks healthy, strong and totally 
                   No fuss from a hairdresser looks right, it is too tacky for words.
                   I have told you that there are many short, short haircuts.  Also 
                   Garbo has her hair cut like a little boy and she is too beautiful
                   for words with long sideburns.

your Phrase to remember: "too tacky for words"

 another VISIONAIRE 37 memo



  1. Conde Nast Editorial Board,

    I have the ultimate chic & continental hair choice: Shaved. Always smart for any occasion, swimming or a night out.

    Your Fan,

  2. SR that works! I wish I could get away with it-such a hot head of hair I have. I am a terrific fan of PAB in an unabashedly bald way.pgt

  3. When will my style of choice, The ponytail, become much to youthful?? I hope not for many years to come. I would not wish to end up in the "too tacky for words" group. However, with age comes a sense of "I don't give a damn" what other people think as long as I am happy!!

  4. Seeing what came before the memo -- that tortured, permed, weekly-hairdresser-visit hair of grandmothers everywhere -- I have to applaud her efforts.

  5. TBKESS- I think my dear I have seen your ponytail and it is too Divine! A pony looks good at any age-I will seek the advice of my hair designer upon my next visit to find a new TWIST for you- You will never be in the too tacky cat-only too too much cat.

  6. mamacita-that is a great point! would be interesting to find out exactly when blow outs became in Vogue.

  7. Ladies (& gentleman) u dont want to go shaved - believe me, I had to due to chemo for a year. It was the most denigrating experience of my life. A woman's hair is her personality. Just think about it, when we want to be sexy we do it one way, sporty another & so on. Shaved is not an option!

  8. Lindaraxa- I do think there are many guys that do this-I have a couple of friends-it just seems easy for them-I always think of Yul Brenner. An option for guys surely. It must be devastating to have to do this-I know any thing done without a CHOICE is never a fashion statement. I am sending good thoughts out to you and hope all is well for you now. Gaye

  9. I'm most curious about the "Beautiful Throat Exercises" -- not neck, mind you, but throat.

  10. I loved this, thanks for sharing another gem Gaye xx
