The hair is the richest ornament of women.
Hair brings one's self-image into focus; it is vanity's proving ground. Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices.
Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.
It seems no more than right that men should seize time by the forelock, for the rude old fellow, sooner or later, pulls all their hair out.
~George Dennison Prentice, Prenticeana, 1860
What's the matter with you guys? The sight of blonde hair knocks you three rungs down on the evolutionary ladder.
~From the television show Civil Wars
The great ages of prose are the ages in which men shave. The great ages of poetry are those in which they allow their beards to grow.
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
I'm not offended by all the dumb-blonde jokes because I know that I'm not dumb. I also know I'm not blonde.
It was a blonde. A blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window.
Hair style is the final tip-off whether or not a woman really knows herself.
~Hubert de Givenchy, Vogue, July 1985
Babies haven't any hair:
Old men's heads are just as bare;
From the cradle to the grave
Lies a haircut and a shave.
~Samuel Goodman Hoffenstein
Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.
Women.... Who made 'em? God must have been a... genious. Their hair. They say that the hair is everything, you know? Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls, and just wanted to go to sleep forever?
~Bo Goldman, "The Start of an Education," made popular by the movie Scent of a Woman
When red headed people are above a certain social grade their hair is auburn.
~Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
Those curious locks so aptly twin'd,
Whose every hair a soul doth bind.
If truth is beauty, how come no one has their hair done in a library?
Long, beautiful, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen... I adore hair!
~James Rado and Gerome Ragni, Hair
Violet will be a good color for hair at just about the same time that brunette becomes a good color for flowers.
Beauty draws us with a single hair.
Gentlemen prefer blondes... but gentlemen marry brunettes.
Hair is vitally personal to children. They weep vigorously when it is cut for the first time; no matter how it grows, bushy, straight or curly, they feel they are being shorn of a part of their personality.
~Charles Chaplin, My Autobiography, 1964
Attired to please herself: no gems of any kind
She wore, nor aught of borrowed gloss in Nature's stead;
And, then her long, loose hair flung round her head
Fell carelessly behind.
~Publius Terentius Afer
[T]his is California. Blondes are like the state flower or something.
~From the television show Beverly Hills 90210
There is more felicity on the far side of baldness than young men can possibly imagine.
~Logan Pearsall Smith
Only God, my dear,
Could love you for yourself alone
And not your yellow hair.
It is foolish to tear one's hair in grief, as though sorrow would be made less by baldness.
To Crystal, hair was the most important thing on earth. She would never get married because you couldn't wear curlers in bed.
There is nothing more contemptible than a bald man who pretends to have hair.
Gray hair is a blessing - ask any bald man.
You can't part the skin of a sausage,
Or a dad from his fond son and heir.
And you can't part the hair on a bald-headed man,
For there'll be no parting there.
Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair...
~Susan Polis Shutz
A celebrity is any well-known TV or movie star who looks like he spends more than two hours working on his hair.
A fine head of hair adds beauty to a good face, and terror to an ugly one.
By common consent gray hairs are a crown of glory; the only object of respect that can never excite envy.
There is one thing about baldness: it's neat.
How can I control my life when I can't control my hair?
It always seemed to me that men wore their beards, like they wear their neckties, for show.
I don't care if they call me "baldie" or "chrome dome." God took an eraser and brushed my head clean. I'd rather be bald on top than bald inside.
~Joe Garagiola, 1975
A hair in the head is worth two in the brush.
Experience is a comb which nature gives us when we are bald.
