    Delurking to say… CONGRATS!!!

    I am a college student who constantly looks to Hair Thursday for ideas on how to revamp my look! (I send my roommates links to specific ones…) You offer great tips, and highlight the beauty in each woman. :)

    And, I am slightly obssessed with the NYT. WOW. So impressed!

    You’re awesome (seriously). Don’t let all those haters on ParentDish get you down.

    Clearly, I have to get on the NYTimes train or something. Geesh.

    You look wonderful, by the way! Very exciting!

  • Moose

  • Dani

    Whoa! Congratulations!

    And, dude, I am *so* glad I got on the Hair Thursday bandwagon before this article came out. I’m one of the original 50! I’ve never been so hip… and cool… and…

    okay, now I’m just deluded.

    Seriously, congrats – you rock! And my hair’s gorg thanks to you.

    Not surprising though. It made MY day and I’m just a reader. Big congrats.

  • MetroDad

    April 17, 2008 at 9:57 am

    So I’m on the subway this morning and I’m flipping through the NY Times when suddenly I see that headline out of the corner of my eye. Suddenly, I think to myself “holy shit, someone is copying Whorl!” Needless to say, I was even more thrilled that the article was about you! So cool. Congrats!

    Now, more importantly, when are you going to start accepting submissions for men’s haircuts? Seriously, put me on that list, yo!

  • bethany

    April 17, 2008 at 9:58 am

    Oh, my universe is starting to collapse. My cousin is in the New York Times and then MetroDad — my hero daddy blogger — comments on her site. Seriously, cousin, you win the battle of competing national media family events this week. I surrender and bow down at your feet. And, like others said above, you look absolutely amazing in that photo. Congrats.

  • Michelle

    April 17, 2008 at 10:15 am

    You look great, and the article is just too awesome! I’m with Metro Dad…when can the menz jump on board for Hair Thursday? You seriously could give the BEST advice on hair, make-up, wardrobe, home decorating…the whole “shabang” (no pun intended) :o)

    I don’t think this is just any old “Fifteen minutes of fame”…..you are on your way to big things!!!!

  • cj4

    April 17, 2008 at 10:19 am

    ps – I’d like to be second in line for men’s Hair Thursdays (or, more appropriately, Thinning Hair Mondays). I’m thinking something to get rid of the grey (because, I would HAVE to do it if all of bloggerdom decreed it be so, right?)

    April 17, 2008 at 10:46 am

    OK, I LOVE the picture they took of you. I burst out laughing when I saw it, not because it’s funny, but out of total disbelief over the awesomeness. The AWESOMENESS. You look so wise and savvy and hair experty!

    This is why those who are obsessed with success will never find it. The successful ideas are always the random-ass perfect ones that someone comes up with on some random Thursday. Someday I’ll be able to tell everyone that I knew Ms. Hair back when she was Whoorl. :)

    Oh, and I’m dyeing my entire head dark purple today. I hope we can still be friends.

  • Danielle

    April 17, 2008 at 11:23 am

    I, too, was struck by the reference to yours as a “beauty blog.” How cool is it going to be to one day show your grandchildren a weathered, yellowed copy of the NYT featuring their grandma! Very neat, indeed.

  • Gia

    April 17, 2008 at 11:42 am

    I keep telling people about this awesome blog I “discovered” and now I can say,”If you don’t believe me, check it out in the NY Times, beeyatch!!!”

    On a sad note, Hair Thursday will never be available for me to submit…your waiting list will go thru the roof!! Perhaps you need to include more than two people, or make it a twice a week event (fingers crossed!!)

    I just wanted to tell you that I voted NO for the bangs on that day. If you would have listened to me, this article would be in the Podunk Press rather than the Times. Cool stuff.
