Monday Snippits: My favorite haircut ever

I haven't had short hair for years, and I mean years.  I don't care much for it, since I had some traumatic childhood hair experiences.  

But on a whim, and remembering how hot last summer was, I decided to go for it. Live large, seize the day, etc, etc...

I was nervous, but the gal knew exactly what she wanted to do, and she did a GREAT job.

And a closer look...

Sometime you just have to take a chance.

What about you? Taken any chances lately?


  1. Aww! My hair is curly too! That's a great cut. :)
    About a year ago I got my hair cut really really short (for me, at least, it was about ear-length) and my curls went ridiculously insane. Like, Shirley Temple curly.
    Crazy chances? Not recently, but I'm planning on sending out query letters soon - that's crazy, isn't it?

  2. Great 'do Miriam! Don't you love that feeling of change? You look very stylin'. I used to wear my hair shorter, but my girls convinced me to grow it longer, and so I am.

    And taking chances? I'm querying a project ...

  3. D.R.- Haha, Dad. Maybe I shouldn't come visit until it grow out again... *grin*

    Bethany- Oh, thank you. Isn't it funny how short curly hair does that? Mine was really curly when it was long, but I still had several friends yesterday ask me if I got it curled. I said "Naw, I just washed it."

    Sending out query letters is definitely crazy, but I'm right there with you. Good luck!

    Natalie- Heehee! Thanks! Glad it's not just me. I keep checking the mirror to make sure my evil short hair from grade school hasn't returned

    You should start a blog, that would be awesome! Querying is less awesome, but you should do that too. :)

    Joanne- Thank you! I feel stylin'. *grin* Growing hair out can be a risk too, there's always that lovely in-between stage where it's long enough to be annoying but not long enough to do anything with.

    Good luck with the project!

  4. So pretty! I feel like Ramona Quimby from Ramona the Pest when she so desperately wanted to pull the curls on another little girl to see them bounce, lol. You have luxurious curls, Miriam!

  5. I have been doing that to Miriam since she had curls, I have no self control. BOING!!!!!

  6. I love the hair! you look darling with it.
    The Dorothy Hamil still haunts me. Oy.

  7. Your hair looks awesome! I wish mine could curl like that!

  8. Love the hair. You have beautiful curls! I have really, really, bad frizzy curls. You definitely have lovely curls.

  9. Laura- Ooo, luxurious! Makes me feel kind of wealthy. :) If we ever meet in person, you can pull my curls.

    D.R.- Yes you have! Shame on you! (just kidding...)

    P.J.- Bwahahaha! I share your shame. I had a Dorthy Hamil at one point, only it was... um... poofy.

  10. Chicke3- Thank you! I can't take any credit for it, it was a gift. :) Although I am one of the few curly-headed people I know who actually likes her hair.

    Helen- Why, thank you. It took me many years to figure out what my hair would and wouldn't do, but now we have a truce. I don't touch it with brushes or hairdryers, and in return it looks pretty good most of the time.

    Looks like you can straighten yours now and then though, something I definitely CAN'T do...

  11. Oh, your new 'do is adorable! I went short a couple of months ago and I am LOVING it.

  12. Wendy- Yah for short! I do like it, especially with things finally starting to get warm around here... :)

  13. Portraits in a public restroom? I commend you for your bravery.

  14. Nic- Heehee... That was the church restroom. It was the only time I could get ahold of Dan's phone and a mirror at the same time that morning. I did get some pretty funny looks though. Har.
