Diva’s new ‘hairstyle’ – Floella on Acid?

Yes darlings, that is the description of my new ‘hairstyle’. Mother please stop reading now. You may find these pictures disturbing. I’m sure you’d dispute the term  hairstyle being used to describe them. That is why we love you!

So this new style happened accidentally when, without elastic band, I decided to tie my hair up pre-shower and on emerging thought wow that looks great – go out like that! Sadly for right-thinking people I have had encouragement in this way deluded way of thinking receiving compliments left, right and centre from equally deranged persons.

My new hair arrangement has been described, rather aptly I feel, as Floella on Acid. Readers of a certain age will remember Floella Benjamin from Playschool, that classic, and now cult, children’s television programme. What’s the day? Time to play! And today we’re going through the round window… If you don’t know what I’m talking about you are too old. Only youthful people like myself will remember this show. Whatever happened to Jemima and Hamble?  I wonder if they now have their own shows?

So here is Floella, now a Baroness with one of her tamer hairstyles.

On the telephone to a friend in London, I told her that my hair had been described as Flo on Acid and she insisted on pictures. So here they are for you too.

Now I don’t think was Floella on Acid was intended to be complimentary but I like it. I’m strange like that.

The question is dear Diva readers, do you? Love it or hate it. Let me know in the comments below darlings (not on facebook). It makes me happier that way. And I have to be demanding. I am a Diva after all!
