Women’s Images in a Small Town in Michoacan

After living in Cuernavaca for a few years, I’ve become accustomed to the way women look. On our last visit to a small town in Michoacan I was struck by the differences in the common “look” of younger women. In Cuernavaca women have “longish” hair. They don’t have short hair, but they have it shoulder- or upper back-length. Often they have layers or some other style. In the little town in Michocan where my in-laws live women have long hair. some even down to their buns. I’ve seen buns wrapped at the back of their heads that are almost as large as their heads!

Dresses and skirts are also more popular in Michoacan than in Cuernavaca where pants or miniskirts rule.

I know this isn’t an earth shattering or even important topic for my blog, but I’m hurting here. My computer crashed, I haven’t been able to get to an internet cafe…. Excuses, excuses.
