ABC Soap Fashion!

Whoever is styling the male hair on General Hospital ought to be fired.
It's just awful. Come on, look at Jason, Zander, Dillon, or even
Alcazar--they look like they just woke up, or in some cases, like they put
their heads in a blender. And the older characters, who tend to have
receding hairlines, have very unflattering styles that make them look
unattractive, like Ned, Stefan, and sometimes even Sonny. This show has
some of the best-looking men on daytime, but it seems like the hair people
there hate them or are very jealous and want to make them look bad.
Other ABC soaps don't seem to have nearly this problem. On One Life to
live, the only guy with funky hair is River...at least he is a rebellious
teen so it makes more sense. Roxy has bizarre hair but that fits her
character. I thought Dorian had a very ugly hairstyle a while back but it
is not a common thing for her. I can't think of anyone with weird hair on
All My Children. On Port Charles, they have been a little more out-there,
but then the whole show is out-there, so it fits in more. Jamal, Jack, and
Rafe had all had some pretty strange styles at times. But it's kept to the
younger people; you don't see Ian, Victor, or Kevin with chia-heads.
One thing that is weird on OLTL sometimes it the clothing styles. That
yellow and black shirt that Rex was wearing for many episodes is the
ugliest thing I've ever seen on TV. It was some weird yellow pattern with
big black slashes on it. Yuk! Jen often has some bizarre outfits,
especially when she is the "bad girl". I thought the week that Al died,
the outfit Marcie was wearing was pretty, but not flattering at all to
her. She is chubby, let's face it, so putting her in light-colored pants
and then having the camera follow her backside as she walks away is a
really bad idea. I don't wear light-color pants and neither do most fat
chicks I know! LOL! We wear dark clothing because we think it's
slimming... Next they'll be putting her in horizontal stripes!
