Hair of the dog? - Words in the Heroes' Tongue

Hair of the dog?
What does everyone think about Cordelia's hairstyle in AtS S3 & S4? I had a scene in IGtbP in which Buffy speaks scathingly about that blonde bob, and my wife (beta reader) objected to the criticism and said that she thought it had looked nice.

Personally I think she's insane or else just isn't remembering properly just how bloody awful CC looked with that style, but if her opinion is widely shared I'd have to revise the scene.

I'm not talking about her S4 pregnancy, just the hairstyle and dye job that she had on returning from Mexico in 3 x 19 "Double or Nothing".

I think it makes her head look very round and large. I don't hate the hairstyle, but it's not particularly flattering. Maybe I should be more persnickety? I'm always being distracted by her breasts.

The hair was bad. Nothing quite like a dodgy hair cut to spoil the looks of a pretty woman. And it got worse! But all was redeemed by the dark wavy bob she had in her one ep of season 5.

Er...does that help at all or am I in a rambling hair world all of my own?

I liked her much better with her natural color. Besides, how many times did Cordelia nasty comments about Buffy's hair? I think Buffy would be justified in criticizing.

And I know you exempted the pregnancy clothes from the discussion, but they were incredibly awful. Someone commented at the time it looked like she shopped at Mominatrix.

Remember that Pregnant Cordy was Evil! so she wore Evil! pregnancy clothes.

Her hair was awful. I remember being shocked that CC had it done herself. I wanted to blame ME. YMMV or in this case YWMMV.

There were times when it looked not too awful, but olive skin and blondeness doesn't mix well.

I never liked the blonde bob--she looked great with dark hair! I always thought the blonde was a subconscious attempt to attract Angel (we all know he's got a thing for blondes) after a not-entirely-satisfying vacation with Groo. And, Buffy would so dis Cordy's hair! Definitely in character.

Tee hee! When I saw the expression on Jayne's face in the piccie, that's the first thing I thought of, and just had to make it!

It looked crap.

The brown was far, far, far better. I could see Buffy mocking the blondeness.

Hi! I love to talk about hair! And Cordy's blonde hair was an awful mistake. I did love the straight, sleek shorter hair she went to when she first got it cut. She should've stopped there, tho. She got it cut too short for her round face, and too layered because that style made her hair look too thin and lifeless. blech
