Hair, Apparent?

I’ve worn my hair up every day in some sort of topknot for nine years now. In that time I’ve had three children, and my silhouette—both during and après pregnancy—needed a lift, so up went my hair.

I’ve only recently begun wearing it down again—long layers, well past my clavicle—because the line seems right again.

But I still love to put my hair up, and I love pretty images of messy updos. This recent Poetry cover, for instance, celebrates the nape of a woman’s neck, an area than can be both sensuous and regal. Poetry indeed.

Are you an updo or a hair-down kind of woman?

Combo-effect for me; depends on what mood I'm in.
