How do, hairdo?
Walking around central London one lunchtime last week I passed a group of foreign tourists. And one of them made me stare. She was a woman of a certain age, too old to be truly beautiful and too young to be wearing crimplene but her hair, oh my word, her hair was a work of art. It was coiffured, laquered to within an inch of itself and set into a proper, old fashioned beehive. It was truly a work of art and I almost gave it a round of applause.
