"Hair Weave Peeve"

That Otherton hair salon must be awesome!
From these Season 4 caps of Charlotte, Juliet, and Kate, it looks as if they found a battery-powered spiral curling iron in the barracks that they could trek through the jungle with them. Juliet's hair was unusually poofy on the beach all of a sudden in The Constant, and in promo shots of upcoming episodes all three look like they've been visiting the DHARMA hairdressing station. And when did Kate learn how to twist up a cutesy bamboo hairband? Her hair looks like it's tiara-prom-ready, for heaven's sake. Even Rose has twirled up her hair in Season 4.

OK, so I kvetch, but sudden changes in details and continuity like this stand out with me. Be glad that you weren't sitting next to me in the theater when I saw Total Recall! But seriously, it must be hard on the actors to go to work clean every day and then get grunged-up for action, so I sympathize. Maybe since LOST will be following the popular glam TV shows this season, TPTB decided to pump up the glam on LOST a bit to attract new viewers from those shows. It's understandable. At least Claire and Sun still have their natural island hair, so all realism has not been totally abandoned. But in all fairness, Josh Holloway has been complaining about Sawyer's hair getting too long, so he should be allowed to give himself a haircut with one of Locke's knives, if we are to believe that the girls are setting their hair with some kind of bamboo curlers and seaweed gel. :-)

LOL, Capcom! And I want to get a DHARMA spa treatment, too! Their facials must be heavenly.

Mmmmm, yes, all that nice volcanic ash mud and pumic does make a very nice skin smoothing agent, you are correct about that! :-)

More proof that this is purgatory - they've worked through just enough of their issues to be free of bad hair days for a while. . .

LOL!

I read an interview with Rebecca Mader awhile back that said when she, Elizabeth Mitchell and Evangeline Lilly were all in hair together it was like the Witches of Eastwick.

My favorite is Juliet's flashback hair. I remember someone, probably Ack Attack, noting that her hair got straighter and straighter the longer she spent on a tropical Island. Where do I sign up for that? My hair gets kinkier and frizzier the longer I stay at the beach -- even after I spend time blowing it straight.

LOL, Witches of Eastwick, now that is funny! :-D

M The Alien said...

oh yeah, you're retired? I thought you were in your 20's!

Capcom said...

Hey, that's a good idea, Sayid must have wired up the beach camp with that now-useless cord from the Hydra! :-D

Yep, I'm retired, but I started working at IBM when I was 10 years old. J/K.
