: The term 'bad hair day' did in fact originate in the UK in 1991 uttered from the lips of Dr Alexandra Bartys, a much inspired and creative soul at the age of 17 years. Her utterances of having a bad hair day were recorded at school having woken up late and burnt the toast and then realised she could do nothing with her hair.
Oh, come on now. I now I heard this in the early 70s, if not before.
