    Good idea!

    Nearly all schools in England don't allow girls to wear make-up anyway.

    It's a slippery slope you see.

    If we're not careful, they would all grow to wear too much make up and have too big hair like many ladies here in the United States.

    I know this looks normal to Americans...



    ...but it's just too much for Europeans.

    With the air and weather in England, they are just trying to keep the girls from getting depressed at school.

    I did some research and came up with this: (removed link to prevent injury to healthy US males possibly causing us to become impotent by seeing these ugly Brittish girls). Maybe they SHOULD should use some makeup?

    Whether it's to your taste or not, you have to admit that American ladies do like to wear their hair "big".

    Yes, of course some do, and many do not. It's personal preference, and that is part of freedom of choice. some girls with "big hair" tie it all up sometimes for a different look. so what?

    And as far as makeup goes, it is a problem with some parents here allowing and even encouraging toddlers to make up and appear as, in my opinion, sluts. I find that disgusting personally. When a girl gets into her later teens, I feel it is OK to look nice with some makeup and hair styles. Everything and anything is overdone everywhere I've been. I have not been to the Mid-East however, where that conduct is not tolerated .

    Bottom line: I am saying that its definitely not only the US where make up and big hair is used. Some of the biggest weirdos I've seen of either gender came from the UK

    Hats, too. Those hats are strange. Does anyone remember the segment on I love Lucy where, while she was in France Ricki was too cheap to buy her a hat, and made her one out of a feed bag? That was so funny.

    I think little girls should look like little girls, and teenage girls look like their years, too. It bothers me when I see young girls, 12 to 14 with tramp stamps, yuk, and inappropriately, dressed for any occassion other than, when they are married and 40. It is a good thing I don't have a daughter, she would hate me.
