I usually received many compliments disguising insults. As a sampling:
Once said to me by a senior co-worker 'Oh your hair actually looks pretty today!'
I had it back in a French braid, my lazy style that doesn't show the curls. I so badly wanted to ask them what it looks like on any other day.
Or, 'Your hair is lovely, I bet you hate it!'
'Your hair is pretty, you should flat iron it, just once!'
Said by friends with pin straight hair... seriously?
