Britain's worst hair nightmares!

We've all had them. Those days when you wake up, look in the mirror - and Strewelpeter's staring back at you.  Or Big Bird.  Or maybe you wanted 'bed hair', and instead, you're facing a full-on Bad Hair Day.

So as we sit shivering at our screens yesterday we had a little wry smile at the competition launched by specialist haircare site to find Britain's Worst Hair Nightmare.  They want you to e-mail a photo of your Bad Hair Day, and the 10 'worst' (as shortlisted by a panel of hair experts) will then be put to a public vote.  (Deadline is 28th February.)

If you can take the ritual humiliation, just e-mail a photograph of your hideous 'do' to, including your name and why you think you deserve to be awarded this crown.

As the site's Francesca Davies observes, 'this about celebrating the awful hair we all have at one time or another. After all, if it gets really bad, you can always hide it under a hat.'

For the forseeable future, a very warm, fake-furry one.
