For some of us, the summer inspires contemplation of murder…of our lengthy locks. I love having a head full of thick, long, auburn hair…until the mercury creeps into the upper 80’s plus. That’s about the time I momentarily revisit the merits of  Sinead O’Connor’s look a couple decades back. But you have to have a stunningly beautiful face to get away with that look. And be a singer. Not being able to claim either of those, I opt for ponytails and other quick up-dos.
