    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.

  4. The New York FUCKING Times!?

    Girl, you’re off the hook!

    Congrats. I’m so thrilled for you. :)

    P.S. Remember me when you are insanely famous.

  5. Nu uh. No way.

    You look wonderful, by the way! Very exciting!

  39. Holy crap! That’s amazing! Congratulations!

    If I were you, I’d buy six copies of the story, frame them all, and place one in every room of the house.

  40. Whoa! Congratulations!

    okay, now I’m just deluded.

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

  52. Hell ya! Wow! Congratulations!

  53. Congratulations! The picture of you “twhoorling” your hair is adorable! ;)

    (How is blog traffic today?!)

  54. Man oh man, that’s awesome! NYT, baby!

    Hmmm … I wonder – what should I do with MY hair? ;-)

  55. Suhweet! Congrats! I love the picture of you playing with your hair :)


    Well said, Superstar. :)

  57. Imagine my suprise when I was thumbing through my NY Times this morning and I see YOUR pretty face!

  58. Jeanette says:

    AACK! Now I’m never gonna get in to Hair Thursday ’cause you’re so awesome!

  59. That is so awesome! And you deserve it, too. Congratulations!

  60. Just My Type says:

    And here I was thinking I’d find you and D on the cover of Metropolitan Home or Dwell! Ah, there’s still time.

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

  61. Holy hell, that’s awesome! Congratulations!

  62. Oh whatever. I’m in the New York Times every week.

    Just kidding. This is superbly awesome. Congrats on a really exciting week and a well done article of your hair hotness. It’s great to see you recognized for the hair goodwill you are spreading throughout the world. :)

    You look great, too.

  63. Totally cool. My mom ran out this morning to buy a copy. :) She thanks you for her daughter being in the NY TIMES!

    :) L

  64. Beautiful photo…so cool!
    And Lori too!

    You both make great celebrities! :O)

  65. Just My Type says:

    Just read the article and no mention of the tutorials! Next article.

  66. WOW! I’m so impressed! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

  67. SQUEE!!! I seriously just screamed. AHHHHHHHHHH!

  68. Imagine my surprise when I opened the paper this morning!! Congratulations!!!!!

  69. ABSOLUTELY amazing and YOU look awesome SO neat! Congrats!!

  70. So exciting! Yay you! I read hair thursday every week, I’m obsessed, but I think it’s great that you’ve helped so many people, and now the New York Times is just recognizing it!

  71. 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!

  72. I’ve been saying it for years! Awesome bloggers are the new celebrity! The NEW YORK TIMES!!!! That’s big, girl! Congratulations!

  73. Whoa! The NY TIMES! You are now a certified fashion diva.

  74. 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.

  75. 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”… are on your way to big things!!!!

  76. 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?)

  77. Heather Cook says:

    That is so awesomely exciting! Congratulations!


    Congratulations! And you look beautiful in the pictures. Well done!

  79. Miguelina says:

    Hello Rockstar!

    Stopping by to say WEEEEEE! before reading the article. The FULL PAGE IN THE NYTIMES article.

  80. AWESOME!!!!!!! Congratulations! Me thinks your waiting list is going to extend by leaps and bounds… : )

  81. Sweet! The NY Times!!!

  82. This is totally awesome! You are in the NY Times. Dude, that is huge!

  83. ahhhhh! how awesome!

  84. Once again in awe of your wonderfulness.

  85. 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.

  86. OMG I gotta go read this in person! BRB!

  87. okay back! LOVE IT! You look so pretty and the article is totally flattering.

  88. Congrats! amazing!

  89. Major congrats for making the NYT. Nice write up and pics are nice, too.

  90. You ROCK! And, most importantly, your HAIR looks FANTASTIC!

  91. 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.

  92. 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!!)

  93. You rock, sistah!

  94. ~ bridgette ~ says:

    That is a-freaking-wesome! Congratulations!!

  95. Oh my God! You look gorgeous in the NY Times!! Wow.

  96. natalie 42 says:

    Well *thats* pretty kick-ass! New! York! Times! Score!

  97. You look so good! Don’t you just love those bangs on you?!

  98. this is far better than pushing drugs, now isn’t?


  99. HO. LEE. SHIT. WOMAN. That’s awesome!!!

  100. Awe.Some. Nicely done, Sarah!

  101. You are a supah-star!


  102. Wao Bella Bella…congratulations!!!

  103. Well that’s how I found your website. I was reading last night and I just followed the link. Your blog is awesome.

  104. that girl says:

    the power of the mighty blog — you did it!

  105. nice.

  106. OMG Congrats!!!!! This is so cool you must be so excited! Big smiles!

  107. That is so great…many, many congrats!

  113. Holy crap! That’s soooo awesome! and a hot pic to boot :)

  114. Get ready for your site meter’s HIT-O-RAMA!

  115. Um, this would be the best day of my life if two freaking gorgeous pictures of me showed up in the NYT.

  116. WOW! You are totally famous!!! Awesome!

  117. This is spectacular, Whoorl! Congratulations on being recognized for your sparkling content and spot-on commentary!

  118. FAN-FREAKIN’ TASTIC! That is SO awesome, Whoorl! Cheers!

    Could we have more Wito pictures sometime soon? He’s just so…smooshably delicious!

  119. I love the hair “tawhoorilin’ “picture of you so perfect! Congrats NY Times you have hit the big time!! Amazing what a blog can do for you. You must be BEAMING!!!!

  120. YAY!!! Congratulations, that is fabulous.

  121. Holy Moly!! That’s flipping awesome! And, I do have to comment, there were mentions of plenty of other folks, but only you warranted the main photo. How cool is THAT?

  122. You deserve the press! Months after my Hair day and I’m still happy-wheee. Next Whoorl World domination.

  123. woo hoo! Congrats!!!!

  124. you have always been this person, superstar. SO veRRRy cool for you.

  125. Dang … NY Times! Whoorl has hit the big time! Nice work.

  126. Congratulations! You’ll have to hire a staff. Awesome picture of you, too!

  127. That is so totally cool. The NY Times, does it get any better than that? Great job, and you look fabulous.


    Did I get the emotion across? Did I? Hope so. :)

    Seriously, though. I can’t believe they wrote an article on Hair Thursdsays! How amazing. You totally deserve it. And, hey, you look completely gorgeous in those photos.

  129. it’s crazy to see your name in the freakin’ new york times….that’s what my kids told me a few months ago when ms grossman did a piece on mommies with ink.
    what a fun story.

  130. You’re too cool! What an awesome publication to be featured it. Your photos are way hot as well :)

  131. lauren-kie says:

    WOW! Congratulations!

  132. Good on you!!!! You look so beautiful in these pictures. So, so, so exciting. It’s not long until you and Wito are going to be featured on the celeb mom & baby sites…and we can all say we ‘knew’ Whoorl way back when!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  133. New York Times! Congrats :) Lovely article and photos. Oh, and many thanks for all the fabulous hair advice!

  134. YOU!ARE!FAMOUS! And I know you personally! So, by that right, I am semi-famous. So exciting! You have had a good week, with LaLa and Sam being in town and now an article in the NYT! Congrats!

  135. I was racking my brain the last week trying to guess the reputable publication, but who flippin’ knew?? The New York Times? Doesn’t get better than that…except it does….because not only is it a great article about you but your hair looks so kick ass in the pictures!

  136. HOLY SHIT! That’s awesome. Congratulations! Seriously, that is just awesome.

  137. You look great!

  138. WooHoo! That’s awesome…congratulations!

  139. Wow, now look at you… NYTimes. You ARE famous ;)


  140. I KNEW that was why I couldn’t get your site to load earlier today. KNEW it!


  141. 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.

  142. Yeah, you’re smoking in those pictures, friend. Wicked awesome accolades.

  143. Rock on! No more complaints, huh?

    And I’m with Neil. I voted NO BANGS. I can never predict the trends…

  144. Yaaaaay!!!!

  151. TOTALLY fabulous!

  152. ROCKIN’ AWESOME SISTER!!!!!!!!!

  153. WOW is right! :)

  154. Filtering Life says:

  155. I am spending the morning catching up on reading and finally got a chance to read this .


    And I changed your photo in my contact book to the twirly finger tips shot.

  156. Sylvester Marshalll says:

    Whoa!! That’s awesome! There’s an article about you and your website in a leading newspaper here in India too!

  157. Delurking to say CONGRATULATIONS!!! That’s just all sorts of awesome.

  158. WOW! Sorry I’m so late in seeing this (things have been crazed and I’ve been stuck in dial up hell). I can tell people I was profiled by THE Whoorl!
