hello from the pixie

You know what surprises me?
It surprises me that I've talked about my hair on this blog almost as much as my dog. Ok, that's not true. But I do have a good handful of hair posts. Sorry for your luck. It's just that I'm trying to figure out what the heck I like. And what I don't like. Honestly, I'm not sure if I have ever loved my hair. If I grow it out ... wet ponytail every single day. Sexy, I know. And if I cut it medium-length, it looks cray cray. Because remember, I will not do my hair in the morning. Every time I go to the salon, the stylist asks me what I do to "style" my hair. And I usually say, "oh, you know, sometimes I blow dry it, sometimes I straighten it".

Ummm, liar.

I'm not sure why that always comes out of my mouth. But it does. So they end up cutting my hair in a way that requires ... styling.
Shame on them.
Why yes. Yes I do.

So remember when Dan suggested I try and look like Victoria?
Well, that worked for about eight minutes. And then I decided not to do my hair.
And I decided to take off my sunglasses.
And just like that, I was back to crazy hair Tiff.

So this time Dan suggested that I get a pixie.
(I think he thought I would look like Halle Berry. Sorry Dan.)
We'll see how this goes.
Day #4 is going pretty good.

No maintenance whatsoever.
No blow dryer.
No straightener.
No product.

Absolutely nothing.

Hallelujah.
Praise Pixie.

And now the pixie and I are off to move nine boxes from my old office at work to my new office at work. Nine! How in the world did I accumulate nine boxes of crap in the last five years? And what's with this crazy "week of change"?
Anyone else having one of those?

  19. Seriously, you look so adorable! I am so jealous! I've always wanted short-short hair, but I'd end up looking like little orphan Annie... and that I do not want.

    Love the low-maintenance, love the look- and the smile just caps it all off!!

  22. It looks great! And I'm just the same as far as doing my hair in the morning--but at least I'm honestly about it with my hairstylist--I will not blowdry or straighten or curl it...maybe I'll rub a little "don't be so frizzy" cream into it if your lucky.

  26. Oh my gosh, I LOVE this hair on you! It looks amazing and so chic and stylish (bonus on no effort needed.) Love. It.

    ReplyDelete
  27. ok, seriously you are perfect for the pixie. i've thought about it, because my hair is longer and i'm the kind of person, like you, that if its long its in a braid, pony, or bun. many people have told me they have never seen me with my hair down, whoops. haha. but i look terrible with short hair, my face is just too fat.
    but you, you can totally rock the pixie, never do anything else with your hair again because you look sexy. ok?

  28. I like that pixie cut on you! Especially with the headband, super cute!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You actually look good in your pixie cut! Kind of classy in a old vintage era? :) Well, I hope you be safe in moving those boxes!

    ReplyDelete
  30. LOVE it! Very simple and elegant at the same time - I love that you have that natural curl, too - keeps it feminine. I have the same cut, and have been so happy with it for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  31. OMG You rock the pixie cut! It looks so great on you... Congrats on finding a low maintenance look!

    ReplyDelete
  35. You look gorgeous!!! Honestly you're one of the few people I've come across that can actually pull this off. Love love love.

  36. Ok, TJ... do we need to have a hair-tervention??? If you go any shorter at this point you'd be all Britney Spears on the scene (you know, when she shaved her head?) and that would REALLY be cray cray! ;) I am so digging the pixie though! It suits you so very well and since I am currently sporting a wet pony tail today, I'm jealous of your new 'do. Good luck with the move!

  37. You are rockin it!!! I think it fits your spunky self ;) XOXOXO

  40. alright so i do hair. and i almost always talk people out of the pixie. because most of the time it makes people's faces look fat or weird shaped or their hair is too thick and bushy or too curly or too flat and it gives them a mental patient look. it just isn't an easy look, the pixie. but you're wearing it so well! and it looks amazing on you. and for that, i congratulate you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. you took the pixie plunge, congrats pretty lady! it looks fab!

    ReplyDelete
  42. It seriously looks SOOOO cute!!! I really think people can mess this hairstyle up but I really like the light blonde on top and I think you have a good, sweet face for it. I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Looks great especially considering it required no styling! From someone who spends oh about 30 minutes styling her hair almost every day (trust me, it is an absolute mess otherwise), I'm jealous! I'd say it's a keeper :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. you look amazing! and sooo jealous of the no styling time!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I LOVE it!! My stylist keeps trying to get me to do a pixie cut, but I'm WAY too chicken!

  49. You are an adorable pixie my dear. So cute!!!

  50. Oh friend... it looks amazing. Your hair is gorgeous and looks perfectly for your face. And its okay to talk about hair. Your a girl and its important, even if you do nothing with it. I thought I did nothing with mine, but I do blow dry it. That's something. But I don't brush it really, or even brush it while I blow dry it. But you still beat me for symplicity. And yes... you are gorgeous. Insanely so.

  56. Holy crap woman! It's ADORABLE!!! I don't know if I'd ever have the guts to do it myself....but I am also guilty of rocking the wet pony tail way too often...so maybe this would work for me.

    ReplyDelete

  62. You look beautiful!! (You always do) But I think that this haircut more than any of the others really does do justice to your facial features and gorgeous bone structure (I should know, my mom is a hairstylist who happens to have worked from home since I was born!) Yay!!!!
