Quandary Resolution 4809
niggard, cymotrichous, tranche, aeolian
Whether it was frugality born out of necessity or a niggardly disposition, a certain cymotrichous dame, a customer of Jean-Claude's Salon, eschewed the electric driers after each hair cut and simply let her hair dry outside naturally, but the aeolian method resulted in an uneven look, with one tranche of the dame's mane looking as if it was drenched under a fountainhead and another as if singed by a desert sun.
