You know when you go to the hairdresser, they always hold a mirror up to the back of your head so you can see what it looks like from behind and obviously nobody ever pays attention. Everybody just agrees with whatever has already been done and some comedians have even made short routines about taking the piss out of hairdressers for doing this preposterous ritual. But have you ever been in a crowd? Something along the lines of a gig or festival, maybe just a night out in a particularly busy nightclub? If you lose a friend in any one of these settings I can guarantee you that nine times out of ten you’ll see someone who looks exactly like that friend from behind but as soon as they turn around you realise it’s not them, they just look very similar from the back. If we all started paying attention and having opinions on the back of our hair, this dilemma might actually cease to exist and it’d be so much easier to locate missing friends in busy areas.
Just a thought.
