*Squeal* and Grandmas

My Nana just called. She got her Christmas present and wanted to talk to me about my hair. I sent this picture so I didn't see the problem.

She said, " You look awful with long hair. The red is nice but you just can't pull off the length. I want to make sure you take care of it before Thursday. People take pictures on Christmas you know. Nobody wants to see you looking like that."

I pointed out to her that I'm nearly 36 and am not near hot enough to pull off a pixie cut at my age.

She laughed and said, " I'm nearly 90 and I can pull off a pixie cut. Now go and fix that hair!"

Grandmas... gotta love them.

Cath, the editor of Paper Crafts Magazine, keeps the most awesome blog. Last week she held a Get Woodsy challenge and one of my cards was chosen as a runner-up. *Squeal* You can see the post here.

I love your hair, I used to keep mine super short and then discovered that it was curly when it was long. Love your cards too. Merry Christmas and happy holidays.

I'm not a big believer in long hair ( I made a living cutting hair...lol), however I think you look great. Your still at the age that it looks attractive, you'll know in your heart when its time to cut it, and that doesn't necessary mean pixie cut either...lol.

First a big CONGRATS Nicole!

I like your hair the way it is, but as others have stated it is all in what you are looking for. Gotta love grandma's though. :)

Oh, she is so not right. Glenn and I have always loved your short styles too (the funkier the better!), but have both remarked on how pretty your hair has looked in recent photos. You can't look bad, in our extremely biased opinions, but you are also one of the few people we know that can truly pull off both long and short lengths.
