Motivational Minute – Sally Bissel

Today’s motivational minute comes to us from Sally Bissel in Lee County Library. Sally received a question from a patron looking to change up the style of her pixie haircut. She wanted to know how to make it more girly, and perhaps explore different styles she could wear. Sally first gave a suggestion about a talented young Oscar-nominated actress who recently played Marilyn Monroe in a movie… an actress who had a great pixie cut. The patron was delighted – not only did she know who Sally was talking about, but it was the same actress whose style influenced her own decision on a pixie cut!  Sally sent her to several different websites that showed some great examples of different styles and even Hats and headbands to make those styles pop. The patron thought they looked great and was so appreciative of all of Sally’s help. It just goes to show you can really ask a librarian anything. Awesome work Sally! Thanks for making today’s motivational minute!

Sally B. Lee County Library

I need some ideas for how to change up a pixie cut. Make it more girly, and just style it differently. Thanks!

You have been connected to Mary K (Leon County).
Mary K (Leon County): Hello, welcome to Ask a Librarian. I am Mary K (Leon County) and I will be assisting you today. Please wait a moment while I consider your question…
Patron: Thank you. 🙂
Mary K (Leon County): Let me see if I can find some good styling resources for you. Just a moment…
Patron: Okay.
Sally B (Lee County) has entered the session.
Mary K (Leon County): Patron, Sally B at Lee County will be helping us with your question…just a moment longer while we transfer your request to her! Thanks for your patience!
Sally B (Lee County): Hi Patron, Looks like we’re a tad too busy here for our own good this afternoon. So let me see what I can help you with.
Patron: Okay, thank you.
Patron: Don’t worry about it, take your time.
Sally B (Lee County): Are you looking for book sources or just hoping for some styling ideas online?
Patron: Online. I doubt there are too many books available. 🙂
Sally B (Lee County): I was just thinking of that talented young lady who recently played Marilyn Monroe and was nominated for an oscar. she had a great pixie cut.
Patron: I’m looking for ideas along the lines of hats, headbands, things like that.
Patron: Yes, Michele Williams. 🙂 I got my cut styled after hers! How funny.
Sally B (Lee County): Ohhhh, so not different ways to comb it out? Hmmm-actually I think you would be better with books for that. Are you going to make these hats/headbands, etc. No way, you did? That’s a crackup! OK< let me see what I can find.
Patron: Hey, if you can find books, that would be wonderful! I just didn’t think they would be as…I don’t know, available? Fitting? Whatever is easiest for you! 🙂
Sally B (Lee County): Well, this sure isn’t easy. I think I’m not using the right words to get what I want. I’m sending you a link to one website that shows little bows and jewelry to decorate a pixie. but hats? Well, that seems to be a bit harder.

Sally B (Lee County): Not bad, huh?
Patron: Perfect! Thank you so much! I’m going to let you go, seeing as you’re busy, and keep doing my own personal research, and I’ll come back later if I still need help. Thank you, though, for your time!
Sally B (Lee County): OK, that was fun. Happy hat hunting. I’m feeling a shopping opportunity!
