Frank Carroll said it in an interview, actually. He said something about her commuting situation isn't good, and she has some serious decisions to make, and that he offered to look for a place for her (a host family I think) near the rink, but that Mirai's mother said no.

Sounds like Mama Nagasu could give Mama Kim and Mama Joubert a run for their money...

Do you remember who conducted the interview/where it was published?

To clarify: This was posted as hearsay information on Golden Skate on February 9, 2012, and not in a published article (we aren't privy as to why Nagasu's mother supposedly said no): http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3473978&postcount=244

And GS closed that thread, because it became impossible to keep hearsay information out of it. You'd unapprove one post with it, and two more would pop up before you know it.

So "buyer beware" on this information. GS does not vouch for it.

Not even close. Mirai's mother is very complimentary to other skaters and is very friendly. She seems to understand her daughter, however, and makes decisions that are best for her as a person.

^ For argument's sake, which So. Cal. rink w/ coach is closest to the Nagasu household?

El Segundo? Or technically Pasadena but no top coaches currently work out of there.

Ashley's complexion and eye color make it easy for her to carry off blonde or dark hair. It's a very good dye job.

ITA. It's a nice color on her and she looks nice as either a blonde or a brunette.

It looks as if she has had blonder highlights applied to her hair, so it's not that huge a change. I agree she looks fine either way.

Does anyone know what Mirai is doing? Will she skate next season?

I've been wondering about that too. She hasn't updated her twitter since she mentioned it was 'hacked'.

:blah:

I hope she makes the best decision for herself this season-whatever that may be.

It's a bit too light for her features. If she wanted to go blond I think she should have gone couple of shades lighter.

I normally don't comment on hair/costume/fashion stuff, but on that topic, thought it looked better before.

Like CZhang, I'm concerned the brouhaha over her 4CC comment may have scared her off...(seriously, it wasn't THAT big of a deal)

:confused: It's too light so she should have gone even lighter? :confused:
