One thing that separates the women from the girls is hairdos.  No doubt about it, big hair commands respect.  We need only look to anchorwomen, 1980s-era high school A-listers, pageant queens, and the mom on "The Goldbergs" to witness the bouffant's big shot appeal.  Well, maybe "respect"isn't the word that most would ascribe to these mega-maned mavens.  Nevertheless, high hair shows that you're serious.  Not Supreme Court Justice serious, no, but serious about something.  After all, if you've put in the time and effort to set, tease, and lacquer your strands into helmet hair, then you're not someone with whom to be trifled.  Interestingly enough, I've worn my hair in the same unlayered, product-free, nearly waist-length style for the last decade.  Sure, there was a time when I did the whole round brush, hair dryer, trim every six weeks routine.  But the tyranny of it all, coupled with the potential queen bee pressures that come with such polish, proved to be too demanding.
