    Re: hairdresser's car

    I think it's meant to be reflect the type of car a female hairdresser would drive. A smaller, "cute" car that is simply something to be seen in and no real performance.

    Typically this label has been put on small, low powered, convertible coupes or sports cars. The cars I've heard tagged with the name are the VW Golf Cabriolet, Mazda Miata, and a convertable Mustang with the base engine.

    The Cabriolet and Mustang *might* deserve the title, but I watch big guys squeeze themselves into tiny Miata's on autocross weekeds and then destory the competition, so I'd give that car a pass.

    Honestly, I haven't heard the term in quite a while and even then from older guys. Hopefully the stereotypes have fallen away.

    For me it means,

    Take care of the car that belongs to the person that cuts your hair.


    This belongs to the lady that cuts my hair,

    A girly car is what it means. I will refrain from giving examples to avoid hurting feelings around the forum.

    I've owned a Crossfire and a MINI Cooper S and both have been referred to as a "hair dressers" car, especially the Crossfire. That said, oh wellhairdresser's car

    Well, this topic is a well debated one for a looooon time but the one SOLID choice is the VW Cabrio, no doubt about it. Being from Detroit it would be said something like the Miata is one of those cars but when you hear that nonsense just know your speaking to a "non-car guy", same thing with the MINI or 500, although it helps having the perf version of both....oh yeah, I should've mentioned that earlier when I brought up the Crossfire/MINI comment, guess the ES has already made me forget the Abarth, how can this behairdresser's carhairdresser's car

    Re: hairdresser's car

    For me, it is a derogatory term from people who are also probably just as ignorant when it comes to other social situations (that I will not name).

    Car choices are like opinions. Everyone has their own.

    Saying "Hairdressers car" is like telling someone that their opinion sucks and doesn't matter to you.

    There are plenty of cars/trucks I find to be unappealing, but I keep that to myself. Why worry about it, or worse yet hurt someone's feelings??
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
