As requested by 3nightbird3: This is my favorite picture of the girls all smiling together. I love that they made a joke out of having their heads shaved instead of moping about it. I think that their inner beauty really shows in this picture. :) 
Tatiana said in a letter to a friend from Siberia that when she had her hair cut short in 1913 after she had typhoid, she was embarrassed, but now that all of the sisters had short hair together, she didn’t mind it so much.
