Hallie on her hair in Me, My Hair and I: Twenty-seven Women Untangle an Obsession
Elizabeth Benedict Editor
I’m thrilled to be included in this book of essays. Suleika Jaouad faced leukemia and chemo with “hair tattoos.” Hallie Ephron tried for celebrity hair, from June Allyson to Sandra Dee to Dorothy Hamill to Jennifer Beals. Marita Golden contemplated the cultural meaning of “good hair” and her decision to let hers be natural. Plus more from the likes of Adriana Trigiani and Anne Lamott. It’s getting rave reviews.
From “Remembering Sandra Dee”…
It’s 1958 and I’m ten years old, a skinny kid, all elbows and knees, a long face with big eyes under furry caterpillar eyebrows, sitting on a stack of telephone books in the chair at Mr. Latour’s Beauty Salon, where my mother gets her hair done once a week. I’ve come here often with her, but this is the first time Mr. Latour is cutting my hair.
