so i'm going to try and grow out the pixie haircut.  which means months of awkward bad hair.

what started as this:
(the original short haired girl.  the story goes that sinatra asked for a divorce after he saw her short hair)

will turn into this:

or worse, this:

the first girl to chop her long hair:

Joan of Arc inspired the ever-popular bob haircut, which originated in Paris in 1909. The voices that commanded the teenage Joan to don men’s clothing and expel the English from France also told her to crop her long hair. She wore it in the pageboy style common among knights of her era until guards shaved her head shortly before her execution. In 1909, the Polish-born hairdresser known as Monsieur Antoine—one of Paris’ most sought-after stylists—began cutting his fashionable clients’ tresses in a short “bob,” citing Joan of Arc as his inspiration. The look really caught on in the 1920s, popularized by silent film stars and embraced by the flapper set. While women continue to request bob cuts to this day, another of Antoine’s legendary experiments—dyeing his dog’s hair blue—hasn’t stood the test of time.

what's amazing to me is how the media focuses on this girl's short hair.

and people are still freaking out because chan marshall cut her hair.

makes me think i should keep my hair short!
