Before & After

Before:  Sad, boring, limp, forgettable.  I felt like my whole lovely visage was obscured by the blandness of what framed it.

Ho hum ho.

Plus when I tried putting it back in a ponytail I wound up looking a little like this:


"A desire to be observed, considered, esteemed, praised, beloved, and admired by his fellows is one of the earliest as well as the keenest dispositions discovered in the heart of man." - John Adams, predicting the advent of my blog like Nostrafreakingdamus

While I love the John Adams miniseries with an ardor usually reserved for my immediate family, that look on my head is not acceptable.

After:  kicky, bold, sassy, and butch as all hell.  It's a little too short and a little too precise for my perfect liking, but it's nothing that 2 weeks of growing out can't fix.  And, look!  You can see my face!  I was under that limp, dead hair all along!

Adorableness by God; Hair by Tart Studios

Hooray!  Hooray!

Yeah, see, before you blew my mind with Giamatti, in the 'before' pic I saw 'Annoyed Maggie Gyllenhaal.'

purty mama, you look great with the pixie-do! ive always been jealous of women who can rock short hair. it makes me think about the time you buzzed your head in college... the immediate look scared me a lil, but the grow-out 2 months later was lovely and gamine! xoxoxo

francine - ha! i keep looking in the mirror and thinking how cute it'd be if it were just... a little... shorter. i can't wait until i'm an eccentric old humanities teacher with tenure so i can just be bald again. of course, slb will weep, but his tears just fertilize my jackassery.
