This weekend I started going through some pictures from the past few years and after looking at them realized how much I changed my hair!
A few years ago I had a friend who worked as a hair stylist and she was constantly trying new things out on my hair. I went from brown hair, to highlighted hair, to platinum blonde hair to permed hair. After awhile though my hair was starting to get really damaged so I had to cut it off and start over. I grew it out up until my wedding and throughout my hubby's deployment but when I moved to NC I wanted a new start. Driving around from client's to client's house in 100 degree weather made having long hair unbearable. My hair is thin as it is so no matter what I did to it the minute I stepped outside it dropped and looked greasy. Plus I was sick of people thinking I was 18 years old. I wanted to look like a 25 year old professional. So around June I cut my hair a little bit above my shoulders in a one length bob cut and loved it!
A few months later, I needed to go back in for a trim and decided I wanted the lob. A long bob. I brought in a picture and told the stylist I wanted to keep the length but just go up a few inches in the back. Well she decided to go for it and I left with what I call the inverted mullet. The shortest layer was ear length and the longest was about chin length,. Plus it was uneven on both side. My hubby hated it. As I've mentioned in an earlier post, I have been struggling to lose those pounds gained during his deployment, so being a few pounds overweight and now having short hair made me feel very unattractive. But I decided to post some pictures of my different hairstyles over the years just for the fun of it..
Platinum blonde-Halloween 2006
Graduation-December 2006: A little more natural despite the frizzy perm
After I had to cut my hair and start growing it over: October 2007
The day before our wedding: April 10, 2008. My hair grew pretty fast from October until April. I added highlights and lowlights to create a beach look
My 25th B-day. Feb 26, 2009. I decided to try out bangs.
My hair this past summer right before I cut it, June 2009
My new one length bob-So cute!
My inverted mullet: I guess it's not horrible, but it's not the long layered inverted bob I asked for. Not to mention that my hubby now said I looked like a boy and called me his lesbian wife. So good for the self esteem
My hair currently-Starting to grow out a little
Feel free to comment. I'd love to hear people's opinions. I think my new hair color might be too dark. I just wanted to go natural but the stylist said I needed to go a little darker, not sure if I like it.
In the end it's just hair, it will grow. Now if only I knew a way to make it grow faster
