I'm a Northern woman, now living in the South, and I rarely encounter any unfriendly women. Everyone has been so kind and wonderful down here.
I have lived up north (Boston and Detroit) and people are people. You are treated the way you treat others.

Are you in the deep south or mid atlantic??

Very different from Virginia but still a blast!

Not my kinda thing, but I'm sure there are men out there who like that.
We do have hair salons in the south that are just as edgy as those in DC!!!
I would say Atlanta has started many hair trends in the south and getting rid of big hair is one of them. No more Tammy Faye make-up either. You should visit sometime just so you know.

*Several of my gf's from Atlanta have gone for that really fake Californian look with fake breasts, white hair, and an orange tan! YUCK! But still, Atlanta has an Aveda hair salon training school and Aveda is top-notch in the hair industry! We also have a Vidal Sasson hair stylists training facility and again, top-notch when it comes to hair! **

Northern women rule.....#1 in my book!
Plus we are wayyyyyyyy smarter!
Have you seen the Housewives of Atlanta?? They are so fashionable!! LOL!

You have probably never been to one of the bigger southern cities because had you been to one, you would know how ridiculous your statements are! Seriously! Most of the girls I grew up with were very smart and actually I have two gf's that are currently finishing up their thesis at Harvard, I have gf that is finishing up at Yale. Several of my friends went to GT (Georgia Tech) and I have two friends that went to Pepperdine. Also, when I attended high school we had 3 people score a perfect score on their SAT!
Of course there are people who lack intelligence and smarts, but that is in every state and every city...even in Jersey!!! Trust me, we make fun of the J-Shore in the south!

No knock on Northern women, but Southern women just seem to take more pride in their appearances. I moved South from Chicago and when I got off the plane for my interview...Well, my God.

I'm from Tennessee and I can't say I agree w/ that. Whoah buddy. The Wal Mart around here looks like ...well, I don't want to be TOO uncharitable. Let's just say the women here don't seem to understand the difference between 'public' and 'private' when it comes to clothing. They wear their husband's stained t shirts, track pants, and crocs almost everywhere! Even the attractive younger girls show up w/out any attention to their appearance, sometimes in pajamas.

I don't necessarily think this is a 'Southern' thing though. Obviously it's a problem everywhere.

Now me, I'm a southern woman and I don't think I'm a great beauty or anything but I do take pride in my appearance. Even if I go to Wal Mart. I get funny looks but hey, that's just me. And my husband certainly appears to appreciate it.

On the OTHER end of the spectrum, when southern women DO dress up...Good lord! It's like they unload every ounce of makeup from their bottom drawer and put it all on at once. And they love the layered poofy hair w/ highlights...it's like they have t make up for 'denying' it every day by styling the HECK out of it when they 'gussy up'. Hee hee.
