Apart from an occasional jagged trim fringe, we’ve let her hair grow and very very slowly, the skinny strands got longer until she had what I liked to call rat’s tails fringing the back of her neck.
Ugly as hell, I say.
My fingers itched to give her a Posh Spice cut. Lop off the back and leave the wispy long sides.
KK was dead set against it. With a father’s typical love for everything feminine about their daughters, he thought the rat’s tails were pretty.
Come Singapore, the tails had to go. Perpetually wet, they looked even worse than usual and made her neck itch.
Between me and a neighbour, we managed to give her a nice little China doll bob which, in my opinion, rather suits her.
