Just interested...

If you had the choice of great skin with mediocre hair or great hair with mediocre skin, which would you choose?

Skin. Without a doubt.

It's the first thing you notice, it can be a bitch to fix when it's wrong, it can irreversibly scar. There's no equivalent blow dry or hair dye for it.

Skin. You can fix hair more easily.

Skin and then wear a hat. smilesmile

As someone who has never had great skin I would choose skin every time. I would love to have had clear glowing skin when I was young that didn't need make-up.

Yy, skin.

In a worst case scenario a wig would be less apparent than a mask.

why does it have to be either? what an odd question!

Skin. It's easier to remedy a bad hair in this day and age of rebonding/digital perm. Or if all else fails, put it in a high bun!

Pink frocks because the question is a theoretical one

Skin, of course. I've always had mediocre skin and mediocre hair, the latter really has never bothered me. But I have always been very happy with my body, and would choose that over everything else.

I'm happy with my hair and skin so I'd choose a slim gorgeous body with small boobs or is that cheating grin?

skin because can always buy hats to hide hair

I've good skin and hair. Lucky me! But I'd give up one or the other to be slender and end the yo-yo dieting! (If I had the choice!). I could always wear a hat or buy expensive makeup! grin

I don't have great skin but I get away with it as I have good hair. So hair for me.
