It is still a feature that will be seen in Liverpool on a regular basis.
Most often of a Saturday daytime when the late teens and early twenties have been to have their hair done but still need to get things done.
I chatted one of our younger lasses in our Liverpool office - the normal procedure is to get your hair done at home or at the salon for a big night out. At the same time their lashes will be affixed if at the salon (as well as apply their eyebrow with a super thick marker pen), but if not they wait till later. If they don’t need to go anywhere they will then lounge around at home in their ‘not-good-enough-to-go-out-in pyjamas’ (they have mostly stopped going shopping in their pyjamas these days).
If they have things to do then they will put on a zip up top (so as not to mess up the hair) and a pair of leggings (usually the skin tight Lycra ones seem to be the latest thing - not entirely without merit to a perve like me). It used to be Juicy Couture but these apparently have fallen out of fashion.
Fast forward to the evening and they will then don their best pyjamas before all congregating at one house to touch up their hair, plaster on their make-up (contouring of course so that their fat visages look like they have cheek-bones), affix dead spiders to their eyelashes and more marker pen to their eyebrows. At the same time they will pre-game - it used to be Lambrini but now it is Prosecco unless one of their number has been to a cocktail making master-class in which case they are getting proper smashed on gin (it HAS to be gin) based cocktails.
To be fair there are some very beautiful women in Liverpool - but if I am in the city centre of a Friday or Saturday night I am usually looking on in horror wondering WTF have they done to their gobs. Half look like a bizarre fashion version of Frankenstein’s monster, whilst the rest would be difficult to tell apart from a lesser extravagant drag queen.
As mentioned on this thread before - I am a scouser and a proud one. But f*** me, some of the inhabitants make me want to adopt a welsh accent and pretend otherwise.
