some tunes for the morning (and some hair help. yes, hair).

i know i've been posting a lot of music videos.

and i know this might annoy you.

but the thing is.

it's like i'm 16.

living in the '60s. and having just discovered rock 'n roll.

and my rock n' roll is youtube. youtube, i tell you!

so bear with me, okay.

but also this post exists because i need advice--opinion--encouragement...

i've been ooshing for a haircut. and the girl in the video at 27 seconds (in the polka dots)...yay, nay? could i pull off that short hair? because i kind of love it. but i don't know if have the guts. or the bone structure.

Kerrie said...

the thing about you, meg, is that you can really just do anything - your face will match anything you decide. short hair might just be your new magic elixir...new angles to discover the you you always are... & the sunshine will kiss your neck in the summer time...i always wanted that feeling..

blessings like heartbeats,

I support you in your music love, and hopeful new haircut. Do it!

Kaleena J. said...

i don't mind the music videos! and i could see you with that haircut, it basically would be adorable.

1.- the girl is so nice 2.- her haircut is great 3.- I think you would be nice with that haircut, you have straight hair and that´s important. Go Meg!! we want to see it :)

Daina @ New York State of Mind said...

I think the haircut would be cute, and nice for summer to have less hair to deal with in the NYC humidity! Have you ever had your hair short before?

Kaylan said...

I think you definitely have the bone structure. I, too, wish I had the guts to get a haircut like that but I find that whenever I say, "I'm going short! I'm going to do it!" I come out looking like the girl at 48 seconds. And, after, everyone says, "Thought you were going short!?" The beautiful thing about hair is... it grows back! I say, go for it!

Jay said...

i could totally see you with that haircut!! that girl even reminded me slightly of you :)

CraftieTheatreGirlSarah said...

yay! a haircut like that would bring out sides of you that you never knew existed! I will warn you though, the feeling of getting a drastic cut like that will leave you wanting more. It's addictive! If mine grew faster I'd be cutting it on a weekly basis haha

sara said...

oh i'm totally in love with this video and song!
and you could totally, TOTALLY pull off that haircut. i am sure of it.

also, to answer your question on my post, i am rehearsing a play called ismene! it's part of an organization to provide awareness and funds for breast cancer support and is being performed in 8 cities around the world! you can read more here http://www.theismeneproject.webs.com/ i'm in the st. john's branch!

Be forewarned. Short hair is a lot more work than long.

Sarah said...

I love it.. and I think that would look great on you.
You only live once why not change it up!!!

Taylor Yves said...

Kaylan said it, hair grows back. I totally think it's worth a shot! PS: I've been listening to this local natives album nonstop for two months.

Hailstorm said...

I always say yes to short hair! I've been tempted to do something like that with my hair as well, but it makes me nervous to. But you should go for it and maybe it'll give me the courage!

Joy said...

There must be something among all the pollen (and beautiful springtime men) in the air in NYC. I, too, posted about getting a new short haircut yesterday. Hmm... I think we should both go for it :)

The Lewicutt's est 2006 said...

I say do it!! I think you could pull it off.

Ashley said...

I definitely think you could work that short cut! You have the face for it! =)

Maureen said...

I think you would look amazing with a short haircut, and perfect for summer!

Erin said...

You definitely have the bone structure for it! And what a great warm weather look! Go for it!

But be brave. It WILL grow back. :)

Megan said...

I've loved the music videos- you've helped me expand my collection of songs and artists greatly :) Also, I would like to echo the many comments above mine and say that I think you would look incredible with that haircut! Follow your heart :)

Syd said...

cutting off your hair is quite liberating really. I have never gone that short, but I have had my fair share of short hair days. Its fun! I say go for it, you only live once :)

Maria said...

Local Natives is one of my favorite bands ever. Oh how I wish they were going to Bonnaroo this year. If you like them you HAVE to check out their takeaway show. It's amazing. Do what you want! And if it looks bad you just have to remember it's just hair...It'll grow back.

s a m said...

have you heard The Local Natives - Wide Eyes? so so good. I'm a big fan of 'songs on repeat' ... and this one has been played in an endless loop more than once.

Red Boots said...

I saw a girl today with that same haircut. I don't think it worked on her because it gave her a bit of a mushroom head because her hair was reasonably thick. if you have thick hair I'd be a bit wary and would go for that bob that you were longing after a while ago, unless you have a really really amazing stylist that you could ensure wouldn't give you the dreaded mushroom head!

Caitlin said...

I am such a fan of short hair since I chopped my hair off! Mine isn't nearly that short, but I wish I were brave enough to try it.. I think the cut would look fabulous on you! And like others have said, if you aren't crazy about it, no big deal since it will grow back!

Shell said...

while, i will never cut my hair short again, only because it was hard to manage and i grew sick of it and missed my long long locks, and it took me forever to grow my hair, it is finally growing back to my normal length but i can totally see you in this cut, i think you will look ahhh-mazing! If you love it i say go for it! i loved my cut for about uh, maybe 6 months then i was begging it to grow back! hahaha. You're so brave this is shorter than what i cut it to, i did the bob like when Rihanna had it in the "shut up and drive" video. Again, i think you'll look darling!

magdalena viktoria said...

I think the girl looks a bit like you actually. Go for it--how fun for the spring/summertime!

Alisha said...

If you look good with your hair up in a pony away from your face, then you can definitely pull this off! Love the pixie look! Kind of looks like it's longer one side. LOVE it even more.

Just talk to your stylist. They can usually always tell when a cut will look good or bad. :)

xoxo

*S said...

Gorgeous! I say go for it. I think it would be perfect. & Hair does always grow back if you don't like it. :)

Ash said...

I would say it depends on how attached you are to your hair. I cut of like a foot of hair, and while I loved my haircut, I really really missed my hair. I think it would be gorgeous on you, but if you're a long hair kind of girl, maybe go for something less drastic?

Libby said...

yes, you should!! it`s freeing to cut hair short..you also kinda look like that girl in the video

jess said...

ohhh I love that hair!! yes you absolutely could pull it off and it would be adorable!! one day.. one day I will have that hair!

Chelsea said...

LOVE that song!!!!

d&d said...

giiiiiirl with that face? you can pull anything off.

Jennifer Rod said...

I love that haircut. When I saw the girl in the video she kind of reminded me of you... so i think you could totally rock the look! :)
cant wait to see pictures!

Tatiana said...

That looks like a great haircut! Love that music video too :)

Diana Mieczan said...

I always wanted to chop my hair off and have it short but Im totally affraid...That hairdo is so cute and the song made me smile. Its great!
Btw: Thanks for your sweet comment the other day:)
Have a lovely Thursday..Kisses

dull boy said...

meg, i'm happy to run with the short hair thing as long as you post a video of yourself dancing around in your knickers

Stevie Leigh said...

DO IT! I love it!

Caz said...

Of all the girls I know with short hair, the thing they hated most was the year + it looked awkward as they tried to grow it back out.

I'm not one for short hair although I admit some girls can pull it off wonderfully.

christine donee said...

First of all. I love Local Natives. So much.

Secondly. That hair cut is the bomb dot com. Do it.

iheartkiwi said...

You would look stunning lady!

P.S. Keep those music videos coming...

#cantgetenough

The Mister and The Missus said...

First of all, I'm loving the music videos! Second, I think you should totally go for the cut! It would look so cute on you! I just chopped all mine off and I have no regrets! Plus, if you don't like it...hair grows back :)

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

I like you posting music vidoes!! And I feel the same way, I have just rediscovered 90s rock, and if I knew how to upload youtube videos onto my blog that's all I'd be doing!

And I think you would look really good with short hair. You have such a pretty face, it would just accentuate that :)

But as one of the comment above said, only do it if your sure because growing it out is the worst! I had a mullet going on for a while there...

angela hardison said...

i love local natives. and i concur with everyone... you can totally pull off that haircut and it would look amazing.

Well Nice Chels said...

I listen to this song ALL of the time. So much that the caps were totally worth it just then. You should check them out on La Blogotheque! Actually here is the link, so good! http://www.blogotheque.net/Local-Natives,5885

On a totally different note. Thanks for the comment! I think I am going to start a little motivation posting trend on my blog because they really do help!

Thanks for the sweet comment on my badge too! I and two others actually own a little creative company called Huckleberry Creative and we do fun things like that a lot! Nice to have sweet feedback :)

Ariel said...

do it! super cute.

ALFIE said...

okay--first:

the flowery TOMS:: amazing indeed-- but sadly- they were a fall special and no longer available....ebay, perhaps??

second:

was so grateful that your post earlier in the week gave me a little place to share my thoughts on current political matters. i'd been sitting here festering-- and then i read your post and thought-- "ahhh. she gets it". i'm so thankful for blogland sometimes.

and third:

do the hair.
your face is perfect for it.
it's ideal for summer.
your head will thank you.

Mackenzie said...

oh my goodness that would look amazing on you! i sort of adore local natives. their music video for "world news"?! i want to live inside of it. i mean, i'm pretty sure it's filled with girls in cute bathing suits playing in a vat of kool aid surrounded by cute suspendered boys and dogs. but if i could just live inside of that video as a girl in a cute bathing suit i'd be so happy.

Britti said...

Love that song. And the haircut.

Sonja said...

Ahhhh! That would look amazing on you! Bone structure? Are you kidding me, I don't know if you're just suuuper photogenic and look nothing like that in real life...but photos tell me you've got the bone structure!!!
although I agree , going from long to that short would take guts!

Platypodian said...

Great video; Go for that hair!!

Kate said...

Cuuute hair! That video makes me want summer something bad.
