I have a photoshoot Saturday. Vintage pin up style. I have my clothes picked out, but the problem. . . the hair.

It's mostly grown back , but not to it's original length. He wants us to bring in suggestions as to how we want our hair. So far, I have these:

Any other suggestions, or am I not being exciting enough?

QC ...

Don't know you at all ... but if you think Dorothy Dandridge's style would suit you, go for it, it is really cute!

Also, on the off-chance that you haven't as yet considered it ... keep in mind, if intending to wear a hat, just how much of the hairstyle would still be showing.

Good luck, have fun, and if possible, post a pic in here!

Meant to add :

If you are willing to go the whole route, (stupid expression, but gets the point across) ... don't forget the eyebrows.

They, too, are part of the charm in that pic of her.

Get your buns back in here QC ... :D

We want to know how you are doing. Made up your mind yet?

Post a pic of the photo shoot if you can, if not, at least give us a pic of the retro clothes that you have chosen to wear.

Had a photo shoot myself many years ago, a long funny story! Kept the pics for years, but are gone now.

Going to go with the Dorothy. I have a sh!t ton of body. Valaida (See below) is a close second, but I don't think I can hold all those curls for long in the humidity.

Will be waxing eyebrows tomorrow. :D

Yes, I will post pics of the shoot.

Inquiring minds need to know.

Aww! Sorry QC ... working retail at Christmas really must be something else!

Hope that you have a nice boss, or then again maybe you ARE the boss, I have no idea.

Anyway, not to worry, both AA and I can wait.

Can we not AA? Say yes O atavistic one!!! :D

Oh bless your heart!

You came in while I was doing my 2 fingered typing thing.

Nice pic ... hair looks great ... but I want to see the shoes as well, and they were cut off!!! :)

I wore black platform mary janes with this set. They were useless by the end because the ground was so muddy, my shoes were sunk nearly 3" into that dirt. :p As you can tell, I did a modified Dorothy Dandridge thing. It was too long to do what I originally wanted from the picture, so we went modified Carmen Jones/Island in the Sun with it. :)

It is such a good idea to go occasionally and have professional pics made.
I was always too busy to think about doing it back in my young prime days.
I have a lot of pics of me and of my son growing up, but very few that were
done by a professional photographer.

They were worth it. Pin-up pics are prolly the best sexy pics for most body types. :D

Nice Pics QC!

I've never done glamour shots, but I go on cruises every year and always have professional pics taken. They are tastefully displayed all over my house..but they all include my daughter. Before her, I never even wanted my pic taken.

This photographer and his crew travels nationwide, so maybe you'll be post-baby ready by the time he hits GA again. . . you live in GA, right?
