"Getting roots done is ‘not essential’"--Mayor Lightfoot

The hell you say.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot made this proclamation after it was revealed that she had had her hair cut without a mask when beauty salons had been closed because of the coronavirus panic-demic.

She's the mayor and represents the city and she has to look the part, she explained:

I’m in the public every day. And candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did. I thought maybe I’d do it myself, but I knew that would be disaster.

But as she explained in a public service announcement, “Getting your roots done is not essential.”

I beg to differ. Getting your roots done is quite essential. It's fundamental.Foundational. Two-tone went out with the two-tone cars of the 1950s. Two-tone proclaims to the world all kinds of messages, none of which are terrific. Two-tone, especially if let to grow throughout the shutdown for weeks, even months, will look laughable, if not scary.

So, ladies, it is this one man's opinion: Do your roots.

  • Thanks, Dennis, for confirming my decision not to ever start coloring my hair. It may change color during all this, but if it does, it will happen the old-fashioned way.
