It Happened Again

Once again, I saw a very, very short haircut and thought how adorable it is. Emma Watson (Hermoine in the Harry Potter films) got her hair cut in a very short pixie, reminiscent of Mia Farrow's old look in the late '60s. I think it's gorgeous. I honestly thought for a moment how fun it would be to be all cute and pixie-like.

Then I remembered that:

A/ I'm not 20 anymore.

B/ I am not a size 0 or anything close to it.

C/ It would feel liberating for about a day, but then I would just think I look like a man which would mean:

D/ I would feel the need to wear makeup all the time.

E/ I could really only wear my hair in one style.

F/ I would be ready for long hair again in about a week, but it would take me three years or more to get my hair back to where it is now, and even now my hair is too short for some of the hairstyles I love.

G/ I would probably look about 10 years older.

and most importantly

H/ I would totally look like my dad. And in case you're wondering, no, that would not be a good thing.

I'm so happy that I've been there/done that already in my life and that I can now look at these things logically.

I think I'll just live vicariously through Emma and enjoy her new look and keep my old look.

Thanks to everyone for your comments to yesterday's blog. They meant a lot. Really.

'Til tomorrow, my friends. Much love to all, and extra hugs to anyone who is feeling stressed out.


  1. Been there, done that! Just have a peek at my album at TLHC, it's all there in living color.......never, ever again!!LOL!! Oh, and I was surely not twenty, or a size zero and my head is square shaped with a high forehead. Talk about "bad decisions!" I can laugh now, but I cried at the time. I'm so glad you plan to live vicariously through Emma, Franny.

  2. Emma Watson really does look great with a pixie. But on second thought, she looks great with her hair long! I guess she's one of those woman who can wear her hair whatever she likes.
    I have never had a pixie cut, but I don't intend to either. I don't think it would suit me... and I love my long hair too much :D

  3. I seem to get a bee up my butt every three years and go short. I've done it again, lamenting and ruing my stupidity and know that I have three years of growing to get back to where I was. I hate my hair. And I look like my dad too. Unfortunately he was extremely handsome. It didn't translate well into a girl's face.

  4. She does look adorable. But that doesn't mean that it would look good on everyone. A lot of women with pixies do look like little old men. But, if hair that short is what they want that's up to them.

  5. Done that long short thing TOO many times! FINALLY figured it simply doesn't suit me & never will!

    Great post Franny, hope you're back to feeling great!



I love hearing from you.
