(Note: if you are my Mother, you might want to SKIP reading the following post as it involves HAIR that is being CUT, and I know how that… upsets you… You have been warned, Shirley!)
My girl got a haircut the other day. Cut and color. She'd been wanting to chop the old locks off for a while now, and who am I—the global embassador of short hair—to stop her?
I mean, it's not like it's that short. It's still longer than mine, which means I still WIN! But she can do artsy-moody pretty well, so maybe I need to watch my back.
She also does the winsome, contemplative side-gaze fairly well.
Oh, who am I kidding? In the generationally transcendent words of MC Hammer: you can't touch this.
Wow … she looks so much older! That colour is totally awesome too …. LOVE it!!
So cute! And I love the color.
Gorgeous! I love it! My one-three just got her hair cut similar to that about a month ago. She’s literally the ONLY girl at the junior high school who has short hair. I love it. Here’s to daring girls with style!
Seriously, gorgeous! Not surprised that your daughter comes with moxie though!
Melanie Louette says
Oh, she looks fantastic! And so much like you. She sure looks like she’s got a lot of spunk and style.
Kim Bolyard says
It looks awesome….love the cut and color it is great on her…she looks so grown up. love the pics
juli Elgin says
Love the new hair. She is gorgeous.
I love it. REALLY it suits her all the way. I can not believe how much she is transforming into a beautiful young lady that somewhat resembles her beautiful mother.
karen y. says
She looks FABULOUS! And yeah, a lot older. It really makes her eyes stand out.
Marilyn Johnson says
WOW, she looks beautiful. I hope your husband is ready for all of the boys to start calling. She looks so much like you Cathy!
she looks great!! Love the hair
Christa Paustenbaugh says
She looks great and I agree, older now too (probably not what you want to hear, right?!!). Great color too-love it!
Lori N says
Gorgeous! Your little girl is getting so grown up (heart strings a tuggin’)
She’s beautiful! It is fun to watch her grow up on your blog.
The cut and color totally suits her. And I have to agree with everyone else who says it makes her look older. Time to buy a shotgun.
Cute cut — GREAT color!
Lord have mercy girl, I will start praying for you now!! She is stunning. What happened to the little girl?
sue Treiber says
I adore it! She is rocking the color and the cut is very cool!
Denise Laborde says
She looks beautiful. And you’re too funny.
That is a kick ass cut and colour, more importantly it suits her !!
Aidan’s hair cut is SUPER cute!!
Kim K says
Gorgeous! Love all the color in there!
Oh that is super lovely!!! Love the highlights.
I love the highlights! She looks great with short hair.
Beautiful, Love the cut!!!
She looks more gorgeous every day.
She looks stunning!! That cut and color suit her SO well!! Rock on, Aidan!
What a cute cut & color! It does, however, make her look much older and even makes her resemble her beautiful mother all-the-more. I’m sure her grandmother will LOVE IT, too!
Is that hottie at the bottom…you????!!! Wow.
and yes, 13 looks amazing. and adorable. I have a male 11, and he does not at all care about his hair.
One word: beautiful!
What a cute cut! It looks great on her and good for her for wanting short hair! Those photos are stunning. And you say she is only 13, you’d better be careful ;o) I hope Dan’s a scary man to the boys that come to the door, so they know not to mess with your little girl!
Kathryn Wafer says
What a pretty young lady you have and I love the haircut(but then I am partial to short hair)
Kathy T says
Love the cut and the color is really great. She’s beautiful.
Oh, this is DARLING!! Love it!!!
I think Cathy, she just grew up. How beautiful she is and the cut frames her face beautifully.
Melanie K. says
It suits her to a T! Definitely growing up .. and she is so YOU! I bet she loves to hear that, huh? LOL! She is just beautiful!
wow. aidan, you have grown into an amazingly beautiful and unique person. 🙂
LOVE YOUR HAIR!
please tell her for me cathy that she looks fantastic..my 16 year old son said “that’s beast”..haha
and my goodness..she looks just like you!!!! and that’s a serious compliment..very cool the two of you..a chip off the old block for sure!
Martha M. says
Love the new hair cut AND COLOR! SO cute! Love it!
In fact, I’m thinking I am showing these pics to my own daughter because I’ve been trying to get her to cut some bangs….maybe this will convince her!
And love the pic of you!
Jennifer W. says
That is seriously a beautiful style and color(s) on your daughter – amazing! 🙂
Jennifer M. says
Awesome hair cut and color…and she looks exactly like you.
Wow…talk about time passing by so fast! She looks so grown up! You’re gonna have some work on your hands! She’s beautiful! Oh, and i had to do a double take cause she looks just like you!
She is stunning! When did she grow up so much? And she looks much like you – so look for the last look soon.
I love the haircut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Has anyone ever told you that she looks like Phoebe Cates? GORGEOUS!
Jeanne Pellerin says
I looked at that first picture and said ‘wow’ out loud.
Lyn Meeker says
Absolutely AWESOME!!! .. And she does look even more like you – and actually .. I thought the pictures were of you at about the same age as she is… That is definitely “Her Look”.
Angela Williams says
It looks so chic! I love it!
WOW! to both of you.
How sophisticated and mature she looks.
WOW! How much more beautiful can she get? Great cut, color AND as someone else said, it suits her so well! SHE should have been the model for this haircut….
Think she could talk my 16 year old into cutting her locks? Momma thinks its time although she does not. : ( oh well.
susan d. says
what a stunner!! and i absolutely love it!!
Kick-ass cut & color! Gorgeous makeup & brows, too. Wow! 🙂
She is absolutely gorgeous!
Oh my gosh I LOVE it! Tell her we all think it’s gorgeous!!
She’s got FAB hair!! Absolutely smashing!
Joy M. says
OMG. She’s beautiful! She’s always been beautiful, but that hair cut makes her stunning. I can’t believe how she’s growing up right before OUR eyes, so I can imagine how YOU feel, Cathy!
Wow! She looks great! So much older and so much more like you!
That cut is perfect for her! She looks beautiful. I feel your pain with your mom…my 7&9 year old boys have long hair. I catch a lot of flack over it from people, especially other moms at school (because their boys want long hair, hehe).
Yes, hottie is me. At 22. That’s the difference here. Aidan is THIRTEEN! Holy crap!
Okay, we all know “beast” is the highest of compliments…. : )
Wow – I LOVE it … she’s beautiful!
Wow, such a FAB style and gorgeous color on a beautiful girly. Hate to tell you this, but it DOES make her look older. As a mom, I hate to hear that. 🙂
laurie eller says
omg! fantastic. wonderful. but most of all beautiful. Shirley will definitely agree! 🙂
Sue O says
Great cut and highlights. You might want to get your shotgun handy now! 🙂
Even cut branches don’t fall far from the tree. There’s no denying she’s your daughter–but in the first photo she looks like a young Katie Holmes. 🙂
Wow, her hair looks awesome!!!
She does look older and very beautiful! Great photos too Cathy! Love that color too. Wish I had dark hair, that would be something to try.
She’s absolutely beautiful! The hair cut/color is very becoming. Is Dad beginning to worry about his little girl and all the boys that will be knocking on her door? If not, he should!
Sara Amuso says
TOTALLY Adorable cut/color! LOVE IT!!!!
Okay – you girls are gorgeous!
Aiden – haircut is amazing! Very nice. You were beautiful before, and this enhances your natural beauty nicely. Good job.
The color and cut are perfect for her…so Parisian…but still youthful. So glad you are a cool mom and let her play with color in her hair…most moms “freak out” over things like hair color…it’s such a near way to express themselves and who does it hurt…no one! Have a great week, fondly, Roberta
Kim H. says
Man she is gorgeous! Love the new cut and color. 🙂
Hate to sound like a broken record, but don’t think I’ve commented in general on your good looking kids. She looks fab w/ the new do/color!
Most girls relish long hair but she looks amazing! You are blessed that she lets you take her photo – plus you have a wonderful “photographer’s eye”.
She’s gorgeous…beautiful. She looks so much like you!
gorgeous! great cut and beautiful color.
Beautiful. Gorgeous. Adorable. Cutie-patootie!
Yeah, that about covers it. Keep the boys away from her for at least a couple more years. Try, anyway.
Nancy L says
The cut and color are so becoming on her. I love it.
Wow!!! The haircut and color looks great on her!
She has your number, a couple more years and we will see if MC Hammer is still singing!
She is a beautiful girl and I love the new haircut!
christine velazco-villacarlos says
Cathy, she looks very chic! love the hair and the color. And oh yes, you BOTH are untouchable 😀
Love the Cut and Color! She is growing up fast and very photogenic, lucky girl…
Brigid G says
She looks great! Long live short hair!!!!
So perfect for her! She is lovely…
Mary Mitchell says
I love the new hair cut………she looks so grown up.
OMG – gorgeous!!
Wow-She looks stunning!!!
that looks absolutely fabulous on her! that cut was completely made for her 🙂
Your girl is just beautiful…lovely cut and color! And she definitely takes after her mom. 🙂
Julie in Edmonds says
Wow! Absolutely stunning.
she looks adorable with that cut
Brianna T. says
Awesome! Love it, looks perfect on her!
I LOVE IT!!! makes me want to try a more funky color…
Wow, she looks goooooood! Love the lighter lashes of hair! This is an amazing metamophosis and a great haircut! Girl, you look good!
Lisa L. says
Wow her hair is gorgeous!
I love it! I’m a short hair gal myself…maybe even shorter than yours 🙂
kim in Cambridge, UK says
Oh Cathy, that is such a lovely look. Aidan has grown up with real grace – she’s blossoming!
BTW, Now I see where you’ve been fascinated by vampires for a LONG time!
You have a very beautiful daughter–I personally love short hair, although I can’t do your short–your daughter got some good genes.
Tricia Shelton says
She looks beautiful, and OMG she looks just like you. Spooky.
i love aidan’s highlights and cut! it really suits her
And CATHY!!!! WOW!!! I LOVE the last pic of you!!!!!! Who took it??? how did you get such a stunning pic??
also, i just have to share that 2 weeks ago i parted with 10inches of my blonde hair, and i haven’t missed it yet…well maybe just a little when i see someone else with long straight hair.
thanks for sharing with us cathy!
that is lovely! but boy does she look older than one-three:) (or maybe i’m just getting older!!)
Love the haircut & color – very flattering! … And am I the only one that has this insane song playing in my head now? Can’t touch this, indeed.
Are you kidding me? Her haircut is the bomb. Looks fantastic. Great cut. Absolutely beautiful. Kudos to your daughter.
Heather R says
beautiful girl, looks lovely with that haircut.
my mother also has an aversion to her daughters and granddaughters getting their hair cut.
It is beautiful!!!
Dana N says
This is so sassy! I love it!
ahh I love it! The color is fantastic too! I keep thinking about chopping all mine off, this maybe put me over the edge to finally do it!!
WOW Aidan, when I saw the pictures I thought who’s that woman! You look good!
And Mom you are right with the MC Hammer: You can’t touch this … Boys, beware I presume Dad is just around the corner.
OMG You can’t get more beautiful than that. But she comes by it honestly. Love & kisses Grandma
gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous….the hair, one-three, the look! WOW….Dan better start locking the doors!
Jill W says
Awesome! I hope she appreciates that great head of hair. Look out world– hold on Mom!
WOW! Lock the doors:) She looks much older and model beautiful.
My first thought was: Wow!
She really looks very beautiful! Beautiful face, eyes and hair!
Tell Aiden the new cut and color are great! Love it!
Jennifer Larson says
She looks great! And I don’t know why this popped into my head when I saw your photo, but did you listen to Depeche Mode in the 80s?
Love Aidan’s new look – and yep, was thinking the same as many others….. you guys are definitely going to have to get rocking chairs and shot guns for your front porch!! 😀
Oh Jennifer, just a little! ; )
Laura Bruynell says
Love, love, love the cut and color!
her hair is gorgeous.
Rachek Ensler says
We don’t know each other, but I do have to stop lurking long enough to say, what a beautiful young lady- and her daughter is pretty spectacular, too!
It’s a strange phenomena that probably only happens to scrapbookers. We ‘watch’ other peoples children grow-up, we see their stories over a course of years. And you feel a certain sense of closeness towards them. But still it’s strange to look at your girl,Cathy, who is 10’s of thousands of kilometres away, who I will never really meet, or know, and feel proud of what an incredible grown-up young lady she is developing into! NICE haircut Aiden! Very cool!
Fabulous. Gorgeous. Love the color. She looks great!
love the new locks!
WOW Cathy!! Aiden has grown up right before our eyes. She is a beautiful, drop dead gorgeous girlie! Dan better find a big stick to ward off her lined up suitors. Stunning!
there is nothing better than a fantastic haircut! this one is the best!
Shelby Austin says
so I saw these pictures today of your daughter’s fabulous new haircut, immediately emailed the link to my sister, who is also my hairdresser, and made myself an appointment for this afternoon. Now I have a matching do
her hair cut is beautiful! and the highlights look great.
and you looked kinda cool yourself with that linda evangelista cut back from back in the day 🙂
Wow! She looks so grown up and beautiful! Great choice of a cut!
Cathy she looks stunning! What a beautiful girl!
kim smart says
OMG!! she is surely growing up right before our eyes! what an awesome cut and i love the bit of color too, it suits her perfectly!! soooo….pretty!
Awesome new ‘do; LOVE it.
Kim Boro says
It looks Fabulous!!!!
like mother like daughter! She looks so ‘grown up’. 🙂
OMG she just aged 5 years and it looks stunning!
The cut, the color, the make up… you sure don’t have a little girl anymore! =)
watch out the boys will be calling!
Gorgeous – both of you.
That kid is too cute! The cut and color looks good on her.
sarah kristiansen says
WOW. From girl to young woman with ONE haircut. She is so beautiful! Well done!
Gorgeous!! I love the cut and color!!
Debbie J says
Wow!! It’s amazing how something so minor can make a major change. She looks soooo much older!! Don’t know if that’s a good thing or not …. from a mother’s perspective!
wow, the haircut and color are fabulous and make her look like 16 going on 21.
She looks AMAZING! And sorry… but she gained like… at least three years with that haircut! LOL. I LOVE those streaks. She is so gorgeous… and i just SO admire her style. 🙂
Awesome!!! I think mom & daughter oughta have a photo shoot to recreate your 80’s photo…which is totally hot btw! You DO rock the short hair but so does A! She’s gorgeous. My 14 y.o. daughter loves her hair on the shorter side too.
Love it!!!! She looks so cool! And she definitely looks like you, which goes without saying that you are cool!
she’s gorgeous ! great pics !
GORGEOUS. I may just have to copy those highlights. Tell Aidan they look amazing. (Seriously, I’m copying this post to show my stylist.)
Dixie Lee says
There are days when you look at them and wonder where the little girl went…
She looks hot! Great cut! There’s no question…the girl is SO your daughter. 🙂 Same goes for me and my mom – no doubt about it!
She is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!! Love the cut and the color is to die for!!
cindy barriga says
The cut and color was perfect for you! You look beautiful! 😀
I seriously relate to this post…my 16 yo just chopped off all of her gorgeous hair, but it suits her. 🙂
Your daughter’s hair is sassy & stylish. Looks fab!
Oh My GOSH — tell Aidan I LOVE her new do.
It’s spectacular and so full of confidence. Just like her.
heather prins says
oh wow she looks just stunning!!
I can’t believe how grown up she looks in these pictures…that new hair is so perfect for her! She is a gorgeous girl!
Love it, love it…love it!
Jane Logan says
I love Aiden’s haircut!! It is so cool and gorgeous! You better lock the doors NOW! I may show my hairdresser this one – it is exactly what I want. Thanks for sharing!
