WAG Watch: High Fashion Hair Curlers?

Last time we checked, wearing hair rollers in public was a “Don’t” in most sensible ladies’ books.

Well thanks to a recently misinterpreted decree from Voguethe British press is now claiming that the baffling, mind-boggling and completely WAG-like trend of wearing hair rollers whilst out and about is now in fashion.

Not so fast.

Once upon a time, there were the odd anomalies to this errand-running ritual. Victoria Beckham and Cheryl Cole were both seemingly impervious to the doctrine of wandering the streets in hair curlers and spending their days engaged in competitive shopping. Victoria moved to America and Cheryl was stripped of her WAG title so the protests from these two exceptions failed to make an impact on their Northern counterparts.

Now if one takes a trip to Liverpool at the weekend, just as Vogue Italia fashion editor Stefania Cubello did, you’ll supposedly find gaggles of young gals walking around with their hair in velcro rollers in preparation of the BNO. Apparently keeping one’s hair pinned up makes it curly and bouncy right before heading out on the town, but is looking like a granny all day long worth the trade off?

We don’t think so.

Furthermore, does anyone else get the sense that Cubello’s comments were made more along the “just trying to be nice” lines?

Our opinion: some of the British press are a pack of unoriginal story-stealing wolves and women should keep their rollers behind closed doors. The bounciness of one’s hair really doesn’t matter when falling out of a club at dawn with half a gin and tonic spilled in it.

    Have to weat a lot for my job – but I never forget to take them out before I'm seen by too many people in them! Thought they all tended to wear extentions anyway!

    I'm sorry, being from the US, is Liverpool like the West Virginia of England? Just wondering, the women seem to be so lacking of any taste or class and this is coming from a diehard Reds fan!! Just kidding West Virginia!

    Unless you are leaving the house to put/grabbing something in the car which is not parked toooo far away I would be fine with the hairrollers in the hair in public. If that is not the case…..THEN NO.

    She never said anything along the lines of, "wandering the streets in hair rollers is so in." She simply said, "Amy Winehouse hair." I wonder how bored they are over at these tabloids that they had make up such a lame story.

    That being said, this whole curlers thing is no bueno.

    I will now quote the NoNo cat "Nononononononononononononononononono"

    Vogue editorial shoot in black & white, model INSIDE a boudoir in her lingerie and curlers, applying her lipstick or what not… YES.

    Out in public in real life… NO.
