Whenever a celebrity cuts her hair into a pixie — or pretends to — lots of other women are tempted to do the same. Not me, though. I had ultra-short hair for years. I’m pixied out. I previously posted this photo of my supershort 1992 ‘do.
But I just rediscovered this photo from 1997.
My hair wasn’t quite that short all the years in between the two photos. I grew it out to a bob several times, like in this photo from 1996 …
… but it never touched my shoulders. Those pixies were easy to style but the upkeep was tough — haircuts every four weeks! I don’t miss that at all.
The motorcycle jacket I’m wearing in the first photo in this post is the one I got in high school, and it’s still hanging in my closet. Here’s a photo of me wearing it in 2009. In the second photo, I’m wearing a Lolita Lempicka suit I got at a consignment store around 1993. I have that too. There’s a picture of me wearing the skirt in 2012. Homegrown vintage!
