Streak Be Gone

I think I'll always wear glasses. Not just because I have this weird eye phobia (so contacts are out!) but because it's part of my identity. I embrace my geekdom. And another part of my identity is short dark hair. Whenever my hair grows out, I just don't feel like myself anymore. So when my amazing stylist, Sandi, works her magic, I'm returned to my good ol' Melissa again.

I finally feel back to normal!

Question for you. I can't decide whether I want to tuck my hair behind my ears like in these photos:

New hair, yay!

Or leave it untucked like here:

Finally!


Geez, my face looks really puffy in that last photo. Bad angle.

i think it looks great both ways! the first are more casual and the last is more sophisticated. different styles for different days? you're so darned photogenic it makes me sick! ;)

Ha! Thanks! Honestly, I took like 40 pictures of myself and these were the only acceptable ones. (Pssst, I also Photoshopped myself, but don't tell anyone!)

Your hair is adorable. And it looks cute either way. You can totally rock the glasses.

I agree with Marzi! I liked the streaks too, but this is more "you"...somehow. At least to my perception of you ;) hahaha

Very cute style!

i say tuck it when you want to read, "vulnerable, yet guarded." and leave it out when you want to read, "guarded, yet bulnerable."

You look so sophisticated! I love the glossy darkness of the new 'do! I think I like it untucked for pictures, but the tucking makes the hairstyle a little more casual. Either way, you look fabulous!
