at least three hairstyles

OK if we're going to count things-that-are-essentially-the-same, I make it nine hairstyles in the past 20 years:

Hair completely loose
Hair loose but with a couple of clips
Pigtail (ponytail with the 'tail' plaited)
Proper plait, not tied like a ponytail at the top
Ponytail twisted up into a bun & held with a scrunchie
Pigtail twisted up into a bun & held with a scrunchie
Ironic bunches
Ironic plaits

I also once tried to do a plaited-at-the-sides-and-then-into-a-bun thing for the May Ball in my first year at Oxford, it looked a bit rubbish but since I wasn't one of the Beautiful People nobody cared, & I still had fun and didn't have to spend £100+ on my hairdo like everybody else seemed to be doing. :-) Anyway I'm not going to count that one because it was a one-off and it didn't really work!

Nine hairstyles isn't that bad going :)

I would like to note that I am pretty certain that I didn't spend £100+ on a hairdo for that May Ball either :) (In fact I have 0 idea what I did with my hair. I may have stuck some pins into it or something, I guess?)

(Currently I am debating growing my hair again. Upsides: um, I dunno, it might look different & I get bored easily? Downsides: probably harder to cut it myself in the bath; more complicated to dye it blue.)

I quite like chicklit & I bloody hated Shopaholic, fwiw. I feel I ought to be able to recommend something but I confess that I have a bit of a tendency to just pick up anything in the library with an appropriate-looking cover & which I can read a page of without wincing, i.e. I can rarely remember author names. Freya North is fun esp 'Cat' which is the one about the Tour de France (yay bikes!), but her style is quite distinctive & one might easily find it very annoying. I think I have something by Jane Gardam that I quite enjoyed? I have also been reading a lot of Jill Mansell of late.
