Hair Style

I love the way many older women pay great attention to their hair styles.For me this is a sign of vitality and spirit. Both my grandmothers would have their hair blown dry and set, a few times a week. It wasn't until my grandma Bluma's final few months that she cared little about her appearance. When Bluma was sick I used to comb her hair back and bring the mirror to her. She would smile every time. Style is not only the clothes we put on, but how we carry and present ourselves.

I stopped the woman above while she was walking uptown with her daughter. I asked if I could take her picture and her daughter remarked, " I was just telling her how beautiful she is. Everywhere we go people stop her. She has a spark in her."

I love the nautical theme she has going on. And, of course, her hairstyle. I don't know how people make these buns...

She is indeed beautiful and I love her elegant classic hairstyle. She's obviously very stylish in her wardrobe choices, too. Great jewelry.

Ah, I love how older women do their hair. I'm always so jealous of their elegant 'do's. Simply stunning.

She knows her coloring, too. Turquoise and champagne white look good on her.

My dear grandma fixed her hair by herself; all the time her hair, nails and clothes were perfect (I inherited a respectable amount of accesories after she passed away). A couple of days before she died, the doctor came for a checkup, and she told me 'give me my makeup, and help me doing my hair and nails. I'd rather be dead than unpresentable'.

Love the photo, but do you have other photos of her that you can post? I would love to see her outfit. Based on what we can see for far, it will be smashing!

I'm 38 years old and have been feeling a bit old maid-ish lately. After discovering your blog, I'm now upset that I'm so young! I need to step up my game!
