Olympia’s No. 2 for Bad Hair — Dave’s Diary

 Washington’s 2014 legislative session is over.  The politicians have all gone home. The capital city of Olympia has returned to what passes for normal. Still, this is no sleepy little burg by Budd Inlet. Even with the departure of the politicos ”concerns” linger. A type of fashion fear grips the city and visitors huddle behind closed doors reluctant to venture forth even as the locals brave the conditions of the day to carry out their routines — knowing that it could only be worse in Corpus Christi, Texas. Yes, we’re talking about Bad Hair Days! ranked cities for all they contribute to bad hair, based on the national averages of humidity/wind/rain/sun, the hardness of the water, pollution levels and even the number of salons in the area ready to do the necessary repair work. Top 10 worst cities for bad hair days:

  1. Corpus Christi, Texas — Why? It’s hot, humid, has hard water and is home to only a few salons.
  2. Olympia — Why? The days are rainy and the air is humid. And you’ll have a hard time finding anyone to even cut your hair since there are only 25 listed hairstylists in the city.
  3. Pittsburgh — Why? It’s polluted. Very, very polluted. And pollution has been known to cause premature balding, graying and dullness.
  4. Las Vegas — Why? That desert climate — dry and sunny — will scorch your hair.
  5. Phoenix — Why? It has the nation’s most extreme climate and very hard water.
  6. Pensacola, Fla. — Why? It’s one of the wettest cities. Even worse, the salons cater to the retirement crowd–wash, curl, comb-out and lots of hair spray.
  7. Fresno, Calif. — Why? It’s sunny and polluted.
  8. Houston — Why? It’s hot, humid and has very hard water.
  9. Tucson, Ariz. — Why? Too much sun and hard water.
  10. New Orleans — Why? It’s humid and wet.
