“Hair” Mail

After reading an e-mail from a viewer last week regarding various things, such as show re-runs, sets, my hairstyle, and whether I wear a wig or not, I decided to devote this post to hairstyles. I think it’s interesting that male television hosts do not get comments/criticism about their hair style like women hosts do. I wonder why!

So, in response to this viewer saying that I had worn my hair in the same style for 15 years and that she assumed I wear a wig (which I do not), I went through some old press kits so I could prove this point. As I explained to her, the reason our sets do not change very often is because we rely on donations to build new sets, and we prefer to put what little money we have into equipment and production. So, I admit we have only had about 5 or 6 sets through the past 35 years — and now that we are in the new Broadcast Center, we won’t be changing the current sets anytime soon as they are beautiful and work well and look great on camera.

I only found press kits from 1986 on (don’t guess we moved older ones when we moved into the new building), but I think the pictures I’m going to share will prove my point that I have had various hairstyles through the years. As you look at these hairstyles and laugh and giggle, ask yourself if you or anyone who know ever wore their hair in a similar style “back then.” Enjoy — and let me know which one you like best.

    Sheryl…your hair is beautiful…each year you posted was totally ‘in’ style and I do love your style now…in fact, I have tried to flip my hair out on the ends like you do…no success…I have extremely straight and baby fine hair so it does what it wants to and that’s usually clinging to my head…
    Love your shows…love your topics…thanks for all your hard work to bring us the most up-to-date information…Bernadette

    Hi Sheryl, Your response to the letter writer is a hoot. I honestly can’t decide which hairstyle I like best. They all flattered your face and looked good on you. I’m very glad that I don’t have a TV show because I have two hair styles. One is short and near to what I wore in the 60s, and the other is a pony tail because I haven’t gotten it cut for however many months it’s been at the time. Your writer would be sadly disillusioned by my easy-care disregard for styles! I do enjoy your show and appreciate the fun things I learn from you and your guests. Many thanks from Colorado.
