Pixies on Parade


Memoirs of a Six Suitcase Girl in a One Bag Allowance World


We saw Les Miserables last week.  I loved every single moment of it.  The cinematography was just phenomenal.  We had seen it on the small stage in the west end years ago.  The movie version allows one to see the actors faces and nuanced expressions.   Also, the movie allows for such wonderful scenery and costuming.  Every actor was phenomenal.  I especially loved Sasha Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter who add whimsy and panache to an otherwise heavy story line.  They were just perfect.

I decided to take direction from the wonderful Anne Hathaway who hacked her long tresses to play the role of Fantine.  The dayafter the film I went to a new stylist reputed to be the master of the straight edge razor textured modern Pixie cut and told her to have at it.  She spent over an hour just on the cut.  I love it.  I don't pretend to be an Anne Hathaway.  I'm thirty-four years older than she is. It's not easy to be turning sixty-five soon.  There's nothing worse than an old woman trying too hard to look young.  I've vowed to never put the knife to my face, but hair and make-up are another storyI'd like to age with aplomb.  But...the cut is a classic worn by Audrey Hepburn and others.  I wore the style for years. Even though my longest strands are now about three inches,  I'm really happy I had it done.
