Anonymous said: I live in San Francisco -- where do you get your hair cut??

I used to go to Edo Salon in the Lower Haight, but my hairstylist recently left and opened his own place in the Mission, Watermelon Sugar.

I really couldn’t recommend him more. He has a God-given gift for translating my non-technical jibberish of what I want and don’t want in a cut into true works of art. He’s also an all-around rad and super nice guy.

I just donated my hair to Locks of Love… and I’m totally diggin’ the short hair!  It’s my first pixie cut and it was halfway down my back before I cut it.  Why did I wait so long to do this??

Great work! The cut is absolutely perfect on you. Readers - Notice the slightly shorter cut on the left side. This helps gives some “edge” to an otherwise very feminine, delicate short haircut. The little details are important, and are what can separate a “ho-hum” haircut from something really brilliant like this.

This reader (with her adorable guinea pig) asks:

I’d  like to cut my hair even shorter, but I’ve got ridiculously  prominent  ears which don’t look the same as each other.  Got any ideas?

First  off, I want that guinea pig all to myself. Second, here are a  few  other short-haired lady photos I’ve posted in the past I think will  look good on you and that have some air ear coverage:

What do you guys think? Anyone else have some bright ideas for this reader?

A reader submission. Low-maintenance short with some nice face framing. Let’s give this adorable girl a hand.

This is more like it. Here’s a side view of actress Mia Wasikowska from Alice in Wonderland’s somewhat new, edgy and youthful crop. In case you’re not familiar with her, Mia used to have incredibly long hair.

I’ve never seen Emma Watson act and could care less about Harry Potter, but I feel the need to do an obligatory post on her new haircut that everyone’s talking about.
What do you guys think?
Personally, her Mia Farrow attempt is drawing a big yawn for me. She’s a pretty girl and has a good face for short hair (more people do than you’d think) but the hairstyle itself… it’s just boring. Nothing special about her or about it. If you’re going to chop off your hair as part of your career makeover attempt, you might as well make the style somewhat interesting. Next.

One of you very politely asked to see the back of my hair, so here is my next-day bed head shot. It’s choppy and blended - no straight lines. The last thing in the world I want is a bob.
