“Psychologically, the brunette is cool and logical. Emotionally, she’s dynamite.” Arlene Dahl, Always Ask a Man.
My sisters Hilary and Laura were beautiful blondes, like my mother. I was always envious of them, with their halos of fair curls, while my locks looked like wood paneling.
But it was my older sister Shaun (and movie stars like Geena Davis and Carrie Fisher) who taught me how to be a brunette. Shaun, as I’ve said before, was (and is) a knockout. As I got older, I began to embrace my dark hair, and Arlene says that brunettes are the “most sensational” My dark hair and pale skin have always accompanied my “look” very well, whether it was dramatic goth girl or funky hipster chick.
Ian gave me one of Arlene’s hair personality quizzes and, sure enough, I was a brunette. Animal magnetism and the brains of a chess player, a vamp, an adventuress, an eternal siren who always gets her man. I like the sound of all that!
But check in tomorrow, because everything is about to change….
