Wear LPs (“records”) In Your Hair (Suki Waterhouse Instagram)
Why important/interesting: Suki Waterhouse is young. You might be young like Suki Waterhouse and have no idea what those things in Suki’s hair are. What are those round, black things? Are they device covers? No, children, no Suki Waterhouse. They are called “LP’s” or “records” – “long play records” and apparently they have no more value for the music industry so they have been made functional by the beauty industry. Of course….! So children, buy “records” and wear them in your hair. Good one. It’s the ultimate recycling!

Daddy-Daughter Bonding Time – Doing Her Makeup (New York Post)
Why important/interesting: at first blush (…get the pun…?) we could say “ew.” Or, “my dad would never do that!” But why not? Why shouldn’t fathers feel a responsibility to understand what their daughters, wives and mothers do?

You want women, including your daughter, to look good and you think “looking good” means wearing makeup? Well, then daddio, you ought to learn to to do some makeup! We agree, Doree!
