As I’ve said many times, Joan Jett has been a hair icon for me for over 30 years.
Four years ago, Yolandi Vi$$er and her extreme mullet were added to my list of hair muses.
I don’t think I’m ready to give up my own mullet hairstyle, especially now that I’ve perfected my “runaway bride in the Greg Kihn Band’s ‘Jeopardy’ video” look.
Still, I occasionally ponder what cut would be compelling enough for me to depart from a mullet, and I decided it would have to be a severe bob, like the one cut by Karen Vu that I spotted today.
Alert reader Sarah Savage pointed out the resemblance to the signature look of iconic New York fashion writer Lynn Yeager.
And that makes total sense because I’ve been a fan of Lynn’s distinctive style for decades. Literally, they don’t make them like her anymore: Modern, corporate New York City doesn’t generate die-hard eccentrics like it used to, so she’s a treasure.
The Lynn connection makes a change — someday — much more compelling. But don’t expect to see me with red hair! The only dye job I’ll consider is gray. I’ve got my eye on colorist Jack Martin who will dye a whole head of hair gray to match the natural grays.

Monday transformation. This beautiful client came to me from north California seeking gray silver color to blend and match her gray roots so she can stop coloring her hair, I started the long process by removing the artificial dye using @malibucpro cpr for 40 minutes then @pravana color extractor for 20 minutes, then I bleach the whole head starting from where her gray roots starts in foils using @wellahairusa blondor with 20 vol developer mixed with @olaplex leaving her gray roots out for about 4 hours by taking very thin sections for faster lightening process until I reached level 10 pale yellow blonde, at the same time all the hair that was left outside the foils I colored it with @wellahair color charm 3A/148 (blue/green base ash brown) mixed with 10 vol for about 30 min to create that salt and pepper look, during processing I had to open each foil and reapply a new lightener mixture to warm areas, then rinsed hair, toned with wella blondor pale platinum with 10 vol for 20 minuets to cancel all the yellow from the hair, rinsed again, Olaplex number 2 for 20 minutes, then shampooed, conditioned, cut and styled with round brushes.
