On The Street….That Hair, That Smile, New York

Ok, I have come to realize that women with great hair usually have a great smile.

Is it the hair that is giving them such a joyful smile?

Here is a hint to the gentleman – try giving your wife/girlfriend a gift certificate to a top notch hair salon for her next birthday/anniversary/getting-out-of-the-doghouse gift and see if you don’t end up with the biggest smile by the next day.

    Indeed, a good haircut and pampering goes much further with me than flowers — more lasting power.

    How could one not smile with hair like this.

    Agree as to the gifting though I wonder if some women would take it as “please improve your look.”

    The jeans, the tube top, the jacket, even the contrasting bag….and then….that hair on top of a cute-as-a-button face. Impeccable. Wouldn’t change a thing.

    I always feel wonderful after a great haircut and style, but no cut and style in the world can give me natural corkscrew curls. :) I think she’s just lucky.

    does the lowerbody part belong to the same person? is it one leg split in two? a hip seen from the side? the hair rocks, but she does seem a bit top-heavy.

    She has Miranda July hair. I wonder if that means she’s talented, too.

    I think the style, the hair, and the smile all come from within. When a person feels really good about themself, it shows. Sending someone to a top hairdresser doesn’t do it because the hairstyle is applied just like when someone is told to smile for a photographer. This lady radiates joy and that’s why she looks so great.

    Always glad to see a curly girl wear her curls with pride! :)

    If I’m not mistaken this girl was in Lucky magazine (that section that shows how different people would wear the same item of clothing). She looked amazing then as well.

    i her at a screening at the tribeca film fest – she’s incredibly skinny and little in person. i couldn’t stop staring.

    i love how she rocks the curls though!

    Go the curly hair!! she looks great although I must admit having curly hair myself, a proffesional blowout keeps me smiling for a couple of days.
    I like the total look of this girl – her jacket looks amazing!

    She is rather thin! She doesn’t really look like a Noo Yawker at all, more cute, compact and British.

    Ack! She’s so cute I want to pinch her chubby little cheeks!

    I also love that you titled the photo “fro.jpg.”

    I have hair like this – my boyfriend refers to it as my “hapa halfro”

    ahh, LOVE her hair! yay for curly-haired girls! i for one never have and never will get a blow-out. i have no desire to look like all the stick-straight-shiny-hair-celebri-clones.

    ps. TS, is something going on with your image links? some of them, if i click them, download the image to my computer instead of opening them up in a new window as per usual…

    She’s fantastic – so many women I know with curly hair hate it, they straighten and cut and alter it, but she wears it with pride, and that reflects in her smile and style – which is also stunning – love the entire look. She looks like a lot of fun.

    I think that having a rich mane of hair can only put a big smile on one’s face. It is about the possibility of feeling more attuned to the natural luxuriance of nature.

    So many women (and men) go to such great lengths to conform to what they think (or are told) is the fashion of the minute(whether it be in clothing or makeup or in this case – Hair) it takes so much away from our natural human beauty. It makes me so hapy to see someone who has just taken what they have and “gone” with it like this person with this beautiful hair.

    Her hair looks like she touched an electrical outlet! I wouldn’t want to wear my hair like that, despite the fact that mine is curly, like hers is.
