Like Mother, Like Daughter

Back in the day, my mom and I had nearly matching haircuts. Dorothy Hamill-style, natch -- I mean, it was the 70s. This was us (plus my brother, who did not have the matching haircut, much to his relief).

As I got older, I grew my hair out long, then cut it short, then long-ish, then very short, then long again, then perms (ah, the 80s), then short-ish again, then very long and finally landed in some version of my current 'do after college. Around these parts, I believe the technical term for my style is "the Raleigh bob," although I like to think my cut has a little more sass than that.

I tell you all of this as a set-up for what Pippi did for the first time yesterday.

She went from this... this (notice the lollipop we had to use to bribe her into the chair)... this...
...which, if you look at my profile picture on the right,
is pretty much the same haircut I have now. 

And motherhood comes full circle once again. Although I don't recall my mom teaching me to say, "Pippi has a sassy haircut!" when I was a girl.


  1. Wow -- this is the first time I've seen such a striking resemblance between you and CC. Fun!

    Super cute cut!

  2. PIPPI!!! Oh my goodness! It is so cute! I have not been able to bring myself to cut my own Pippi's hair. We may have to enlist you guys to come with us for moral support when that day comes. LOve the this Pippi's hair... and love the snazzy olan mills? photo.....can we bring that studio back?

  3. Sooooo cute! I love that haircut on little girls - my youngest has it and gets so many compliments. My older daughter has the same style I had growing up. We just don't know any better!

  4. There is NO WAY your Mom can keep up with you anymore . . . Certainly not in hairstyles. And definitely not in parties:) And Pippi? I'm speechless! But I love ALL the pictures and I love you and Pippi! Thanks:)


But enough about me, let's talk about you. What do you think about me?
