When did high school seniors start looking so poised and beautiful? Did the girls I graduated with look this good? I hate to slam my entire graduating class but I have to say, I don’t think we did. Then again, we had a good excuse. It was, after all, the 80s, and hair was BIG. So big I once measured my friend’s hair, top to bottom, side to side and front to back. I don’t remember the exact dimensions but I know a 12-inch ruler didn’t cut it. Had to break out a yard stick. Now that’s big. (And seriously flammable.)
But back to Gabrielle, the poised and beautiful, regular-sized-hair, subject of these photos. Congratulations on your graduation! I know you will go far.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path, and leave a trail.
