April 30: Hairstyle Appreciation Day

Farrah Fawcett 1977Moptops - McCartneyI went back and forth today over whether or not to do this, because there seems to be quite a lot of controversy online over exactly when Hairstyle Appreciation Day is, and if it’s actually Hairstylist Appreciation Day, not just plain hairstyle. However, I was having too much fun looking at what wikipedia told me were popular hairstyles, so I decided to do it anyway.

Billy PrestonApril 30 seems to be the most prominent date for it, so here goes:

Happy Hairstyle Appreciation Day!

Rachel from Friends [copyright NBC]Today is a good day to try a new hairstyle or just appreciate your normal one, even if it’s simply to run your hair through it and call it good.


No matter what your hair is like, I doubt you’ve ever received any of these compliments:

“How beautiful you are, my darling!
Oh, how beautiful!
Your eyes behind your veil are doves.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
descending from the hills of Gilead.”

“Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel.
Your hair is like royal tapestry;
the king is held captive by its tresses.”

Song of Songs 4:1 and 7:4
