Going straight


Straight means going in one direction only without deviation. Alternatively it's used for something level or symmetrical. To straighten is to put into proper order or condition.

Straight up, implies honest and direct, unless it's a drink in which case it would be undiluted. A straight-laced person is conventional and respectable.

I had my hair straightened today. What do you think? Does it make me look straight-laced? Should I change it straight away?

Very glam, Patsy, but I must admit I liked your lovely waves, of which I'm rather envious having naturally very straight hair. I pay to get mine bounced up!

Straight to the point - I can't believe how different you look, Patsy. It's really nice and it's always good to have a change..

Suzanne Furness said...

I like it, always good to have a change.

Change is always nice. Gives a lift to the spirit. I have noticed that my hair does what it wants and since I live in a humid climate, it won't stay straight--too much inclination to wave. It's fun to do see it straight now and then and I enjoy the look for the hour it lasts, lol!

I wouldn't have recognised you straightaway, Patsy. Looks great (rhymes with straight!) Wouldn't go anywhere without my straighteners! Enjoy your new look! :-)

Misha Gericke said...

I like the straight-hair look. It's a nice change. :-)

Maggie May said...

I really like it and it suits you. Are we ever happy with our natural locks I wonder.

Frances Garrood said...

I like it. Do you think it will last? I used to have very frizzy hair, and straightening never lasted long. Straightened circumstances... No, that doesn't work. Wrong word.

Btw did you know that the word "set" has more space devoted to it i the OED than any other word?

Very glam and flattering and I love the new page too :)

Linda G. said...

Beautiful! Then again, the wavy you is beautiful, too. Good to have options. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Looks nice! A lot different. I imagine the curls are hard to manage. Keeping it that way?

Patsy said...

My waves will soon bounce back I expect, Lindsay.

Patsy said...

My husband was surprised when I came home. Especially as I only went out for a trim.

Patsy said...

I like to come out the hairdresser looking different from how I went in, suzanne.

Patsy said...

Mine usually does as it likes too, Sia.

Patsy said...

I don't have straighteners, Jan so I'll be recognisable again soon.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Misha.

Patsy said...

I sometimes am, Maggie. I like to try different looks though.

Patsy said...

No, I don't think it will last very long, Frances.

I didn't know that about set. I'll make sure I'm prepared for a lot of typing if I pick that as word of the week.

Patsy said...

Thank you, Jane.

Patsy said...

Aaaw, thanks, Linda. Yes, it's good to have alternative looks.

Patsy said...

It is different isn't it, Alex? The curly look is actually quite easy and I'm quite lazy, so I'll be going back to that.

Old Kitty said...

OH. MY. GOODNESS!! Your hair, your beautiful hair!!!! LOL!! Where's all your pre-Raphaelite hair gone to!!?

Wow!!! What can I say!??! Wow!!

Take care
x

Leandra Wallace said...

I like it! But you look good both ways. ;) Change can be fun tho!

Annalisa Crawford said...

It makes you look so different. I like it. And the pic of you in glasses reminds me of one of my primary school teachers (a nice one!) I had my hair curled once, but they dropped out half way through the evening!!

Teresa Ashby said...

Wow! It looks great - but your curls do too. I do envy your lovely hair. Mine is neither straight or curly but just sticks out in strange directions x

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Your hair looks great, Patsy - it's fun to change a look now and then! Thanks for those links.

cheyenne jones said...

Hi Patsy, good to be back. Now then, must be careful here, as a male, just saying one thing might mean another! ..........Especially about complimenting. So here goes.

You suit it. Hows that? lol!

L said...

Like it for a change of style, but prefer your naturally 'big' hair which most ladies use lots of products to achieve.

TracyFells said...

You do look very studious with the straightened locks, Patsy, as if you're about to lecture us on writing. Now you can flit between curls or straight depending on your mood - both look great with your lovely red hair.

Heather Holden said...

Your hair looks great! :)

Patsy said...

It'll grow back, Kitty.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Leandra.

Patsy said...

It seems curls are as hard to keep in as to get rid of, Annalisa.

Patsy said...

I can do the sticking out in strange directions look too, Teresa. That's my most usual style!

Patsy said...

You're welcome, Rosemary.

Patsy said...

What are you saying, Cheyenne? Didn't I suit it before? You hated it, didn't you?

Ha! Kidding. You're right, it can be tricky to compliment a new look.

Patsy said...

I think I prefer it to look like lots of hair too, Linda. It'll be back that way again soon as it grows fast.

Patsy said...

I'm sure if I was to try lecturing I'd giggle halfway through and ruin the effect, Tracy. But if you want someone to talk about writing in a non serious way, I'm your woman.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Heather.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Patsy .. great photo and thus straight hair! Love it .. cheers Hilary

Patsy said...

Thanks, Hilary.

Susan Jones said...

Amazing Patsy, more modern, and chic... Author Patsy at your service..... It makes your face more noticeable. The other style, (which is lovely as well,) your hair takes all the glory. Will be great for the summer as well. But if anything like me, it'll be the same again tomorrow, as it was before! When you came in, and hubby didn't recognise you, you should have done a funny voice, and said, 'No, Yorkshire accent, (not that Yorkshire is funny by the way,) Patsy has gone abroad, and changed places with me. Then you could have kept it up for ages.... for a laugh....

Patsy said...

The hair might fool him, Suzy, but my accents have never, ever fooled anyone!
