Sprechen Sie Deutsch? A New Beauty Vocabulary
by Jenny Bailly, Deputy Beauty Director, November 1, 2013, 9:00:00 AM
Germany has bestowed on us gifts beyond milkmaid braids, Birkenstocks, and Claudia Schiffer. The German language has brought us words that describe certain universal experiences so brilliantly and efficiently that they’ve become part of our own lexicon. There’s zeitgeist (literally, "time spirit"), doppelganger ("double goer"), and everyone’s favorite (come on, admit it), schadenfreude ("harm-joy"). In Ben Schott’s new book, Schottenfreude (Blue Rider Press), he proposes 120 new German words for the human condition. They include dronhoschenschlaf ("thorny lingerie sleep"), defined as feigning sleep to avoid unwanted sexual intimacy, mahlneid ("meal envy"), coveting they neighbor’s restaurant order, and several terms worth adding to our beauty vocabulary:

Haarmonie ("ha(i)rmony"): reassuring your hairdresser

Spiegelbildanflosung ("reflection disintegration"): staring into a mirror until you begin not to recognize your own face

Fingerspitzentanz ("fingertips dance"): tiny triumphs of nimble-fingered dexterity. (According to Schott, fingerspitzentanz can describe a “range of pleasing acts of quotidian legerdemain," including unhooking a bra, spinning a coin, and fastening a bracelet. We believe it also describes creating the perfect cat-eye flick, completing a braid, and perfectly polishing a pinkie in a single swipe.)

There are many important beauty experiences that Schott’s dictionary doesn’t address, however, so we’ve come up with a few German words of our own:

Schmutzigeshaarbedauern ("dirty-hair regret"): the midday realization that you really shouldn’t have tried to go one more day without washing your hair

Lippenstiftschande ("lipstick shame"): the embarrassment you feel when you notice that you have lipstick on your teeth

Unerwarteshaarvergnügen ("unexpected hair pleasure"): waking up to a great hair day on the morning of a long-awaited haircut

Ruiniertnägelniedergeschlagenheit ("ruined-nail despondency"): the deep frustration of returning home from a pedicure to realize your big toe is smudged

Thanks a lot indeed, she looks great but what is really frustrating is that all the pics we get this year are LQ or even "VLQ" Sure it reminds us the good old time when she was shot every day on the school run. It was maybe too much but now we just have to deal with these pics. Hope that HQ will come back any time soon :surrender:
