Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- Female Relatives With Beautiful Hair

It's Saturday Night - 
time for more Genealogy Fun! 

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

1)  This week we're going to look for female relatives with beautiful hair in our photograph collections.

2)  Find one or more photographs of females in your ancestral families that have beautiful hair, by your own subjective beauty standards.  

3)  Show the photograph(s) if you have it/them and tell us a bit about the person shown.   If you don't have a digital photograph, please describe the female and her beautiful hair the best you can.

4)  Write your own blog post, or a comment to this blog post, or a comment on Facebook or Google+.

Here's mine:

1)  I am absolutely smitten by my 2nd cousin twice removed, Ada Woodward (1886-1961), born in Kansas:

The photo was taken in 1898 in Belleville, Kansas.  Ada was the daughter of Charles F. Woodward (1862-1906) and Nellie Bell Redfield (1863-1889).

I believe that Ada Mina Woodward married David Talbert Williams (1882-1961) in about 1905 in Kansas.  David and Ada had three children, and they both died in Wenatchee, Washington in 1961.

I've always wondered if Ada's hair was brunette or red.

2)  I love this photo of me and my mother from late 1943 when I was a baby:

Even though she was a new mother, she looked elegant with a short hairdo and stylish clothes.  This may have been at Christmas 1943.  I even have hair in this photo!  My mother's hair was brown, as was mine.

A little delayed, but I found a photo with a very fashionable (for the time) hairstyle.
