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.

I was celebrating a significant birthday that night.

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 …

Photo taken at the border of North and South Korea.

… 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!

  1. The thing about pixie cuts is that eyes go straight to your pretty face. I’ve been yearning for very short hair, and even though I know better, I tentatively suggested a very short cut to my very kind and smart stylist. She said “over my dead body.” (Meaning hers, but possibly mine, too.) And she’s right, I know.
    But you look fabulous in yours, and it must be nice to know you can go back to it at any time.
    You’ve barely changed since 92! Good for you!

      I’m definitely much less willing to have all eyes on my face these days! LOL. Bangs are definitely useful coverage.

  2. I learned a long time ago to “never say never” when it comes to my hair, dear Wendy!! I’m absolutely in love with my short cut right now…but that doesn’t mean I won’t go longer (or switch up the colour!) again down the road!! P.S. How adorable is that first photo of you in the pixie and moto jacket?!
