This not-so-wordless Wednesday is brought to you by a Twitter conversation about hair lengths and colors.
It all started here. I went for extensions (early ’90s) before the art of it and Caucasian hair was really perfected.
Short version? I ended up with the dreadlocks below (I think the picture was for a fitness book we did at our studio.).
And, when I was over those, I had to shave my head. The photo below is my hair *way* grown out. (I think it was for a Valentines Day personal training promotion. I know, we all hurt for me)
Since I had barely any hair (seriously. the above is grown out!) I seized that time to go red, purple, and the platinum-blond below. To my chagrin Ive yet to find any red or purple haired pictures.

An autobiography as told through hair styles. I like it.
I worked with a woman who had the same hair style for 23 years. And not a good one either.
Lori (Finding Radiance) saysDecember 8, 2010 at 4:23 am
I would not have known the blonde woman in the last picture was you!
I would die of embarrassment if I put my hair issues over the years on the net, particularly thinking of the home perm that looked like a Brillo pad LOL!
Bea saysDecember 8, 2010 at 4:41 am
I can’t believe your hair was ever that short.
Lindsay saysDecember 8, 2010 at 4:53 am
Are those BRAIDS in your hair in the first photo??
leslie saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:06 am
Well, who knew you sported such a broad array of ‘dos with such aplomb?
Roxie saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:10 am
I am speechless here on Wordless Wednesday.
Wifey saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:15 am
Not sure which one tops the list – the extensions or the Valentine’s Day outfit. Got to LOVE it!
Winks & Smiles,
Tia saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:21 am
You failed to tell us that if we click on the photos they enlarge 🙂
The dreads are too funny, Miz
MizFit saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:34 am
**whispers** that was a secret 🙂
Lizzie saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:23 am
hahah i JUST did that!!! How is it you haven’t aged a day?!
JourneyBeyondSurvival saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:25 am
I love you. AND your hair. Oh, and I’m excited that I read Tia’s comment.
Andrew saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:29 am
OMG you were (still are) such a hottie in that Valentines pic!
MizFit saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:34 am
that made me laugh. I looked at it and thought DAMN I WAS YOUNG!! Maybe…25? 26?
Ahh shorthaired youth.
Runnergirl saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:34 am
I love it short! You look very elfin… and it’s really cute.
Why oh why don’t men like short hair?!
BK saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:35 am
Ha! you look so innocent in those photos like who set me up for this??? Cute.. I love when you do these..I so wouldn’t have pegged you for a blonde
Jessica @ HOw Sweet saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:37 am
OMG… the first pic! Love it!
Heather saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:47 am
The things we’ve done to our hair, oh my! You’re still cute in all those hairstyles, though!
Joanna Sutter saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:50 am
Best. Worldless Wednesday. Ever.
Shelley saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:58 am
Why am I not surprised you look adorable in the dreads? (Especially the short ones. Too cute!!)
I love you spirit, woman.
Natalia saysDecember 8, 2010 at 6:11 am
I like the short hair! It’s cute! 🙂
Marisa @Loser for Life saysDecember 8, 2010 at 6:22 am
LOL! Only you could pull those off and still look cool! Me??? Not so much! My hair was the 80’s version of Jerseylicious – big, crazy and embarassing. Go mall hair and Aquanet!!!
dragonmamma saysDecember 8, 2010 at 6:23 am
I think you pull off the extensions OK. You are so NOT a blonde, and I actually LIKE the short hair.
Roni saysDecember 8, 2010 at 6:40 am
LOVE the third one! You should totally go mid length. Could be a nice change yet still long for hubby!?!?
lynn saysDecember 8, 2010 at 6:52 am
you look so terrific with short hair. you could be Emma Watson’s twin!
Carly saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:00 am
Love it! I may have to pull out my photos of when I had the Flock of Seagulls look.
Sagan saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:01 am
Tehe! It’s always so funny to see people with different hair than we’re used to. And I’ve got to be honest, you’re really versatile – you look good in all kinds of hair styles! That can’t be said for many people.
I tried going reddish for a very brief period of time. It was NOT me.
Janell saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:02 am
I wuv all your hair dos. Especially the really short one. You wook adorable.
When it’s short, that’s really the time to experiment with color and pray that color doesn’t cause some sort of head cancer. I just changed my platinum blond back to brown with blond highlights (for the fall/winter season). Somehow harsh blond doesn’t really go with the horradays.
Erica saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:14 am
What an awesome post 🙂 No 80’s hair? I rocked my hair in a half side pony in a scrunchy for 10 years I think….
Marcie saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:28 am
I forgot the short and dark phase!
angela saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:42 am
Ahh. I had many many colors of hair in my youth. Many. And nearly destroyed my hair with color accidents at least a few times. And I totally had that short boy hair once because I let an idiot cut it. I don’t think there are many pictures from those times. 😉
Jody - Fit at 53 saysDecember 8, 2010 at 7:46 am
Carla, you say hair issues & I could go on forever & bore people to death!!! With super curly AND FRIZZY hair.. it has always been bad stuff from trying to straighten myself to permanent straightening at the hair parlor when I had more money to wearing it curly.. never matters… it is always a pain & aways ready to frizz!
As for the super short, I went there too & a very similar cut!
Such a universal subject matter. I think we all feel better on good hair days & not so great on bad ones! 🙂
Karen saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:22 am
I am having a bad hair decade. Maybe longer. Mine is most cooperative very short but thanks to Oprah I realize that longer hair makes most women look younger! I’m tired of my bob.
Poj saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:23 am
Hannah saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:29 am
Love this insight into you!
You’re a free spirit.
Shelley B saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:37 am
WOW! Not only the hair, but no Star of David tattoo yet. So fun to see a different Miz – and my gosh, what is it about short short hair that makes us look practically like children?!? (ooh foreshadowing on my mishmash for Friday!)
I hope you find the red and purple hair pictures – just knowing that you did that has ratcheted up your coolness factor another notch! 🙂
JavaChick saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:54 am
I love that short hair on you in the Valentine photo. So cute!
I have had pretty much the same hair forever, with mildly varied lengths. My hair is curly and works best in a layered cut. I did have it fairly short once – like chin length – and hated it so I’ve never gone that short again. Fortunately the curls seem to work for me. 🙂
Geosomin saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:59 am
I really like the short hair actually. It’s the overalls that made me giggle. 🙂
I could never do dreads tho. I like the *idea* of them…I ust couldn’t do it. I do admit to having fake ones (some multicolored) though…for costumes…Yeah. That’s it…
I love seeing people and all the different ways they looked in the past…
Yum Yucky saysDecember 8, 2010 at 9:07 am
Dreadlocked Miz? I’m chuckling over heres.
Kerri O saysDecember 8, 2010 at 9:25 am
LOL, love it. The short haired pic almost doesn’t look like you! I’ve been every length and color of the rainbow too…right now I’m considering dark brown almost black with pink…I think I can pull it off 😉
Quix saysDecember 8, 2010 at 9:48 am
Ok – I LOVE THE DREADS! They look super cute on you. Same with the platinum blonde. I bet you even looked awesome with a shaved head. GI Jane!!!
Oh how I miss playing with hair color. But mine’s FINALLY grown out to be natural for the first time since I was 14, I’m kind of enjoying the non-maintenance. 🙂
Rose saysDecember 8, 2010 at 10:06 am
Simply awesome post. I love the hair-do’s of yore.
Joyce Cherrier saysDecember 8, 2010 at 10:45 am
love the dreads…you could rock dreads now!! That would be awesome! 🙂
melissa @ the delicate place saysDecember 8, 2010 at 10:47 am
best. i love this post! i went a more safe route and added temporary spray color and went from brunette to blond to red. i should find these photos!
Helen DoingA180 saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:05 am
L-O-V-E this post. That is all.
Kelly Happy Texan saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:28 am
Oh Miz, blone? I would never have guessed. Such transformations.
I’ve toyed with the idea of hot pink highlights. 😀
Vee saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:30 am
I’m a natural yucky plain ole brown (brunette is too nice a word) but in my thin days, I modeled hair styles so was auburn, bright red, purple, blond and platinum blond. Loved it. Thinking I’ll do it again maybe. Someday. Something to cover my gray!

p.s. Thanks for your support; I very much appreciate it.
Ann saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:39 am
You look adorable with dreads! I’ve been wanting to dread my hair for a while but am too chicken.
MizFit saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:40 am
DO IT 🙂 if I had badass curly hair that would easily dread Id do it again in a second!
Jill saysDecember 8, 2010 at 12:24 pm
Like everyone else, I think you look super cute with short hair!! If I were so inclined, I would pull out the 1988 photo of me with my superbigjuliaroberts ‘do. I’m still waiting for the day when really big hair comes back in style!!
Ryan @NoMoreBacon saysDecember 8, 2010 at 1:37 pm
Disappointed to see the lack of a jerry cur and or mullet.
suzanne saysDecember 8, 2010 at 4:46 pm
🙂 I’ve had a mullet, i’ve had spiked hair and i’ve had many different colours! Love you in the dred’s
charlotte saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:36 pm
I love it!!! I’ve done some crazy stuff to my hair in the past but you totally win! You look gorgeous no matter how your hair looks but those extensions… wow. Just wow.
Kris @Krazy_Kris saysDecember 8, 2010 at 5:46 pm
Oh Dear – Hair History?
I will NEVER GO PUBLIC!
You are a wise, brave, oh so precious one 😉
'Drea saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:30 pm
It’s ironic that it’s wordless Wednesday because I feel speechless. 😉
Hey, we all had our experiments. You look cute. Just can’t decide which picture is the cutest.
tricia saysDecember 8, 2010 at 8:54 pm
I’ve gone SUPER short, and red, and blue streaks, and red streaks
now, I refuse to dye my hair. mainly because i”m too lazy to keep up with it
got a few inches cut off yesterday and it STRESSED me out 🙂 awwww to be young again 🙂
Kimberly saysDecember 8, 2010 at 9:47 pm
Strangely, I really like the short blonde look. It was pretty cute.
Foodie McBody saysDecember 8, 2010 at 11:02 pm
Holy wowsers, Miz!!!!! I gotta say I was staring way more at your ARMS and your ABS than your hair, but truly the valentine one with the short little pixie? SO SO CUTE! I adore it. (and you)
Jenn (Gh) saysDecember 9, 2010 at 12:32 am
What a fun post!!! You just won my heart all over again!
Debra saysDecember 9, 2010 at 5:40 am
LOVE THIS!! I had no idea you had such a wild hair past : )
Nitmos saysDecember 9, 2010 at 10:06 am
Priceless. The look on your face in the first picture tells a story. And that story is…”what the f*ck did I just do?”
Drazil saysDecember 9, 2010 at 5:59 pm
Is it wrong to hate you for looking cute no matter what your hairstyle is? Cuz I sorta do. Just for a second and then I go back to loving you.
elaine! saysDecember 15, 2010 at 4:53 pm
Holy cow!! The short dreads are AWESOME! I wish I could pull that off, but I’m a whitey with fine, blondish hair, and we tend to look like drowned rats with dreads. 😉
You have a great face for short hair. 🙂
Lisa Marie Mary saysJanuary 10, 2012 at 8:13 pm
I absolutely LOVE the Valentine’s hair! So adorable! I’ve been thinking of going that short myself – but, since I’m heavy – ick. DH says I’d look like a man. I think I’ve just about talked myself out of it…
