Since Lu asked me in comments if my new haircut was the shortest it's ever been, I decided to rerun this visual history of the various hairstyles of Panthergirl over the years... I had LONNNNNNNG hair all through high school (the down-to-your-ass kind that gets stuck in the toilet if you're not careful). I have to scan a pic of that, though.
Here's an 80s version, replete with spikes... and with the clearly visible tan line!!
I was probably about 22 in this photo... this was after I had cut off most of my mane.
This is another '80s photo...after the spikes grew out. I was trying out my friend's new bathtub. (doesn't this hair look like a wig?)
1988 perm. This one didn't last long. My hair is so straight that a full perm would only stay curly for about a month.
This was SUPER short, circa 1992. I was really, really thin so I could pull it off, but EVERYONE told me I looked like Liza Minnelli (hello? that's NOT a compliment!) so I grew it out and I will never, ever cut it short again.
