Chopping Wild Hairs

This is almost totally non-art related, but here goes:




I was in the West Village Friday, and decided that it was time. I had been growing my hair out for two long years and it was time for it to come off. After my friend Cheryl passed away, my friend Diane passed away, and two other girlfriends were diagnosed with cancer, I decided that this was a little thing (a very little thing) that I could do.







I am donating my hair through Beautiful Lengths. Hopefully, it will make some beautiful woman feel a little better. If you have ever considered cutting your hair (it is summer and damn hot! Do you need another reason?) Consider doing it now, and for this great cause. Here is a before and after. (I said I wanted it to look like Maggie Gyllenhaal's)


My hair is laying on my desk, looking very much like a sleeping animal or an amputated body part at the moment. It is a little disturbing, I must admit. I can't wait to send it away tomorrow. At least now it won't need tying up at the felting table.

Your hair looks great, perfect for summer. That is so great that you are donating what you cut off!

I like your new do! I could never donate because I can never tolerate letting my hair grow long enough. I would love to but my hair is super thick and dark and it gets all tangled and hot and I end up chopping it every summer.

Good job!

That's a very nice gesture. You look great w/ short hair, too.

You look gorgeous! Short hair is so liberating and pretty. My hair is very fine and I have a hard time growing it long, so I alternate between short and trying-to-grow-long. When I go short I get excited like a little girl and say to my hairdresser "cut it all off". I want one of those pixie cuts but I am not brave (nor thin) enough to pull it off. :)
You look great.
