Tuned into Today this morning.  Ann was away on assignment; interviewing and "hanging out" with the new president of Liberia.

So Ann "dodged a bullet" in more than one way.

BTW, she looked great this morning.

I didn't tune in until 8:45 a.m. or so, but Ann was definitely on periodically this morning from that point until the end of the show at 10. I was under the impression she was filling in for Katie Couric because Natalie Morales was doing the news in Ann's spot. Ann's hair was down. It was a good morning.

Here's proof:

So, what I'm thinking happened with Ann is that they set the "long hair makeover" segment up and then for some reason she decided not to participate.  Why do I think this?  Well...

  • This seemed custom made for Ann to have her opportunity to cut her hair on the show with a name stylist (Louis Licari)
  • Natalie Morales did the segement, 'cause Ann was on assignment and out of town.  Seems like they would have rescheduled, 'cause it would a natural for Ann at least for the conversation with Louis about her own long hair
  • They only had two models.  They never have only two models.  There are always either one or three plus.  Where was the third?

Sure, it's circomestantial, but it rings true at least for me.  And is it just me, or does it seem like Ann got a light trim/shape up on her long locks of late?  Dunno what the deal is.

Oh, and Katie looks 100% better with the additional layering and flip.  Amazing what a difference a small change makes.

Could be Ann is, like Halle Berry, coming to appreciate her long locks.

I also noticed that Ann's hair seemed slightly shorter compared with before she was gone for the week.  It's hard to tell for certain because she usually has it curled but I could definitely believe it. 

I wonder if she has decided to not do it...or what?  Maybe wait until summer?  I guess that is my best guess...that she and her daughter will do the donation this summer.  Maybe her daughter decided she needed to wait and that put the whole thing on hold.  It's also possible that she just decided 'no deal' although that does seem unlikely considering it had received some press.

I don't think she was ever donating. There was supposedly an article over a
year ago that said she was. The article didn't actually quote Ann, but
someone who said Ann was. If you Google Ann and Locks of Love, there is
no article and every link is someone who said they heard it somewhere. Has
anyone actually heard Anne say it on "Today" or anywhere else? I think this is
an Internet myth.

There have been numerous "hearsay" kinda articles, but she did indeed state that she and her daughter were growing their hair to donate on one of those Lifetime "Intimate Portrait" bio shows last fall.  She also mentioned that her long hair was driving her nuts and Katie Couric said she looked like Pocahontas (sp?).

So, it has been confirmed by Ann herself, but where that plan stands at this point is anyone's guess.  I still say it was supposed to be back on Friday the 13th, but something prevented it...

Pooh on them for scheduling it for an unlucky day!  Nobody in her right mind would have her hair done on Friday the 13th!  No wonder she chickened out!
More awesome than a manatee!

If she waits much longer it will just seem like a woman's normal cycle between long and short hair.

It actually does look like Ann had a light trim. But I look at it as if it's good news because this might mean than at Ann has changed her mine about Lol and decided to keep her long hair.

I did post this before it could have been something that was talked about but maybe someone looked in to LOL? Found out that what has been put out there about them? walked away from it?

I don't want this post to be used as anti-LOL post just something I was thinking from all the stuff posted about it in other posts.

 Why anyone is excited to see the hottest 49 year old in America transformed back to the old "boring" days is incomprehensible! (lol)  I still predict that Ann will NOT be cutting her hair appreciably for years. One can only imagine her upset e-mailers when she announced she'd be chopping it. (No, I wasn't among them. lol) Keep following Mom's sage advice, Ann! Blessings, Bob

I so agree with you, Bob. She has transformed her look. I often wonder if Ann would have been offered her gig on Dateline NBC if she hadn't looked so hot. Gord used to say Katie Couric had the hair transformation of the 21st Century. I believe Ann Curry has the most improved head of hair in the last year.

Here is today's photo update on gogomags:

I am a short hair lover, so take this with a grain of salt.  I think her hair looks alright early in the show but by the end starts looking bad.  My wife had the same thing.  When her hair was long and she curled it....it looked great for about an hour but soon went to lifeless. Side note, my wife wears her hair short now - me, happy camper.

Well, so much for that.

Ann Curry confirmed what others have reported on this site: that she's only growing her hair to donate it to Locks of Love.

The conversation on Tuesday's "Today Show" turned to hair when Alexis Glick commented how beautiful an older woman (I'm paraphrasing) could look with long hair, using Ann as an example. Ann, sitting at the news desk, said she "hated" her hair and was only growing it to cut it and donate it to LoL. Katie Couric, who had her own new style going, countered by saying Ann did not hate her hair and it was beautiful. Katie said Ann's daughter had already cut her waistlength hair and donated it to LoL and that she credited Ann for also wanting to contribute to the charity. Ann noted that kids who had lost their hair and kids who would never be able to grow back their hair are the beneficiaries of LoL donations.

I was stunned; so much so that I didn't pay much attention to the rest of the conversation, which may have included Katie admitting she changed her own look and that she just wanted to have sex. I know the sex part was part of it, for sure.

Ann did not say when the haircut would happen or if it would happen on the air or what she was waiting for. I agree with the person who reported earlier that Ann's hair appeared to be trimmed. I wonder if LoL prefers all donated hair to be the same length.

Hearing all that, I won't be wasting much of my time praising the virtues of Ann Curry's hair, knowing for sure that it won't be there for long.

- I like Ann's hair shorter, but I gotta say, it looks really good in that
latest pic. Although it does seems to go lifeless by later in the
broadcast.

- Katie added some actual life to hers this morning with some - well,
they were kind of flips, almost loose curls, not quite either. I'm glad
Katie has broken out of her super-straight, one-length rut. But she has
this odd habit of trying to force more flattering styles onto her current
cut, which, without layers and bangs and a little volume, doesn't really
accept them, and so always has this halfway, experiemental look. Still,
with Katie I'm grateful for any change. If your goal is sex, Katie, then
cut the hair to match the 'do!
Your hair is your best accessory; wear it with STYLE!
