Reflections of previous generations

ameri.jpgMy last big style change reminded me of my mother circa 1976. The latest one is my grandmother, Romayne, at age 6.

In one of our family albums, there is a black and white photo of Romayne with a hairstyle very similar to my new one. She’s standing outside wearing a patterned dress and chunky lace up shoes. Maybe it was the first day of school or a birthday. I suspect her sister cut her hair with the aid of a bowl. Mine didn’t involve any bowls.

I wonder if after my next style I will look like my great-grandmother?

Well, I like the haircut. Is it a Japanese style? Whether or not you like it, it will grow out so quickly that you will hardly know it was ever cut! —J

I like this cut—I think I make a pretty cute 1920s six year old.

This is the first time I’ve ever tried to look like a movie character. Can you guess what movie? It’s not a bad resemblance (the hair, not hte rest of me).

I like it!
It’s pretty mod. It fits you well.

Bob guessed correctly; it’s Amelie. I think in the US it was released as “Amelie of Monmartre.”

Now that I think of it, I look a bit like Yoshimoto Nara’s angry little girl drawings or the lead character in Letta Leaves Home.

So I guess the haircut is French, Japanese, or Swedish. Nobody else in Tokyo seems to be wearing this style—today three women in Shibuya stared and pointed at me!

Adorable! Yes, you look like a foreign film star.

Yep I think that’s my favorite haircut of yours. I wish i could see it in person.

You look like Madeline, only with shorter hair.
