Short Cut

A new chapter in the Platinum Princess Chronicles.
Last weekend at a Christmas party I saw this girl across the room who had the haircut I've been dreaming of. I accosted her and after much fawning and flattery she agreed to let me get some pictures of her fabulous cropped cut. Please ignore the goofy face on the right. It's all about the haircut.
This was my original inspiration picture. The lovely Farrah Fath from One Life To Live. I don't even watch that show. I may however watch the shows before and after it. When I saw her new haircut I searched high and low for a good photo. And I found two angles.



My goal was to speed up the blond to gray process by cutting off as much color as possible while still covering my Yoda ears.

The back is 2 1/4 inches long. I eliminated my part which helps camouflage the nasty grow out line.

See, all gray.

At Thanksgiving we were getting ready for church. I didn't have a hand mirror so I asked my 6 year old nephew if the back of my hair looked okay. He said, "No." I asked him if it was sticking up and he said, "No, but it's all black and gray and white. Can you fix that?" Then when we got to church a guy asked my brother-in-law if Tom and I were his parents. I hit the guy with my leather gloves. I am only 10 years older than my brother-in-law. Seriously.
Both of these incidents gave me cause for concern. But I am undeterred. I will go gray. I'm six months in. If I hate it when the process is complete than it's back to the bottle.

That cut is perfect on you. PERFECT! In fact, it looks better on you than on the stranger at the party.

I love it!! I actually love the little bit of blonde that is left around your face. Maybe you should just keep that? Either way you will look fabulous! The new cut is so cute!

Dahling. Very, very cute. I love the gray.

You need to spike the top a little.

That may have been bad thing for you when it was asked if you were my parents, but it was a glorious thing for me.

Ok, it's catty of me to be happy that you have "yoda ears". I have a freaky eyebrow that I have to cover up. I'm glad there are others who have to pick a hair style to hide flaws! Makes me love you all the more!!! :)

Gorgeous! The gray does not make you look old one bit. I think it is sassy and chic, just like you.
