ENDANGERED SPECIES

ENDANGERED SPECIES

I’m worried!  Are blondes becoming an endangered species?  Just this week I’ve noted Chantelle, Jade Goody and Hannah Waterman have gone a deep, dark brunette.  Who’s next?
And if these names mean nothing to you, you can feel proud of yourself for not watching ‘rubbish TV’!

LOL! I recently returned to brunette after being blonde for about 5 years!

Michele says hi and I say Happy New Year.

It's happening over here in the US too, Pat. Several of the well-known platinum blondes in music and movies have become brunettes lately. It's just a fad, I fear, and soon they will be be swinging that pendulum back to blonde again!

Michele sent me this time!

I would love to say WHO? but I do recognise Chantelle and Jade. It's not the watching of crap TV, it's the fact that we are constantly bombarded with their images.

I wonder if your overseas readers will recognise the names?

I'm brunette, always been one - it has never been worth it to bleach my hair!

Hi Judy: but will their brain power be affected? Sorry that was unworthy but as an ex natural blonde I'm entitled to laugh at myself:)

PI said...

Hi CQ: Hannah Waterman is an actress - ex Eastenders and her father is Dennis Waterman of The Sweeney fame and lots more. Re overseas readers - probably not - bur I coudn't bring to mind any US equivalents although according to Judy it's happening over there too. Not exactly world shattering stuff - just a Sunday morning doodle

PI said...

Hi VK and welcome! I wonder if you noticed a change in attitude when you changed colour?

christina said...

Good point - I also know someone who has just done this - Back to their roots, one might say.

And here via Michele's!

Z said...

You're right. Cameron Diaz has done it (http://www.tiffanyastone.com/images/xmasdrewcamphoto.php) and Britney Spears did it briefly last summer (http://www.tmz.com/2006/08/21/britney-spends-some-fast-cash/)

I've never changed my hair colour. I just can't be bothered with the maintenance. Sadly, blonde hair tends to darken with age, but I suppose that will be put right when I go grey.

PI said...

Hi Christina and welcome!

Z: but you might be like me; mine has gone darker, interspersed with pesky silver threads and I'm tempted to do something to ginger it up - so to speak - but what?

Dave said...

I feel proud!

Popped by from Michele's, and immdediately thought, wow a link to a a British blog from Michele's, what a pleasant change.

PI said...

Hi Dave and welcome! Hope you enjoy your visit.

Paste said...

Thanks for popping by, we hope to see another visit from you soon. Always good to find another Blogging Brit.

fjl said...

Were you blonde Patti ? x

PI said...

Hi Paste and welcome. I'm sure we have mutual blogging friends.

fjl: yes. I have been every shade of blonde - naturally - getting darker all the time apart from a short period when I wanted to get rid of the yellow and had it bleached an ash blonde. Awful!

kenju said...

Pat, I doubt if their brain power will increase any, but of course, if they were brunettes to begin with .....

I didn't recognize the names you mentioned in the post. A comment left by someone else asked if overseas people would know them - we don't - for the most part....LOL

kenju said...

Oops - Michele sent me again.

PI said...

Judy: it's very remiss of me. I shall try harder to bear in mind my world wide friends:)

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Pat, here is a clip of another fausse blonde for your amusement!

PI said...

Daphne: I clicked on it and got 'Mad about the Boy' clicked again and it said'now playing' but there was no sound or vision. I'm always having this problem alas! The maddening thing is that every other blighter in my comment box will see it but not I. Booh Hoo!

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Pat here is the link to cut and paste:

PI said...

Daphne: they say it doesn't match anything. I tried taking the question mark out but no dice. Not to worry.

Guyana-Gyal said...

Haha, and here, the girls are BLEACHING their beautiful black hair to some crazy shade of brass!! It's dreadful, that false brass.

PI said...

GG: women! Italian girls used to do it in the seventies and that usually was brassy looking also.
