For want of a descriptor, untitled

Emily wanted more blue in her hair, for senior pictures.
As we drove to the beauty salon she told me she was through with "high school" haircuts.
I did not reallize this was out of focus, but no mind.


Except to say Anna, the stylist, did walk over once to ask me if it was OK with me.
Then the number one clippers removed all the hair not twisted up on top.
And, Anna applied the blue.
And began styling the remainder.

 I agree, it's no high school hair cut.

  1. Only people of your age have blue hair here, Joanne. Anyway, is it blue, is it blue-green, or is it green?

  2. That cut looks great on her. My son is 53 and I wish I'd allowed him to wear his hair the way he wanted to (40 years ago)... But, truth is, even the schools had restrictions about hair back then. You are one special Grandmother!!!!

  4. I wish I were bold enough to try a different color like that. I suppose it is only for the young though.

  7. Now that is dramatic. And changes her look completely. I suspect it would send me crazy though - it looks as if it will fall in her face and over her eyes at the drop of a hat.

  16. That certainly isn't a high school haircut!
    The blue looks more teal, nice colour.

  17. Lately, I have seen that style with various colors on young women. I appreciate people who who take chances and want to show their personality. I think Emily looks adorable.

  22. I don't mind blue hair but I'm afraid I do not like this style of hair on any woman young or old. Having said that, it seems to be quite a popular haircut and I'm sure Emily will enjoy it.

  24. Oh my! You are a progressive granny for sure! Harley wouldn't be nervy enough for the cut. But she might like to try the blue!!
