Okay folks, I am about to take you back on a journey of my hair cuts over the last ten years. I have always loved to play around with my hair--I've done some crazy stuff, and lately I am getting BORED. My hair is the longest it has been since college, falling past my shoulders. For the most part I am happy with it--sure, it takes some extra time -- but I can't shake that feeling that I need something different.
Let's take a look back, and maybe you, my faithful readers can give me your input! Let's start with the unfortunate cut I got back in 1998ish. That was also an unfortunate period of home coloring.
Umm, yeah, I know. I am also thinking how this horrible thumbnail of me will be up on my friend Stephanie's blog, Built to Last. Ick. Just for the record, I am not headed back to the short, spiky and purplish red category of hair styles. (But see, I do love you guys, and thought I would lay it all out here for you.)
On to the curling and highlighting and hair spraying year. At some point, when you get enough blonde highlights you are eventually blonde, I guess. (That's me on the left. And yes. I was quite possibly inebriated.)
Looks like I finally tamed the fro a bit here. I actually like the color quite a bit in the photo below.
WOW! I guess I grew it out a bit and went darker! Getting big again though, this must have been before the flat-iron trend came about.
CHOP! I moved to Vegas and got sick of feeling the hair on my neck, especially during the 115+ degree summers. I also started getting my hair professionally colored. (Phew)! Remember that flippy hairstyle that was all the rage in early 2003 or so?
Preggo with James and letting it grow! Really liking the length here.
CHOPPED again! And back to brunette. This is the stacked bob that I got and grew out over and over for about four years straight. (See Flannery? This is what I'm talking about.)
Here it is from the back. Ooohhh, I miss that feeling! That may be where I am headed this time.
Growing it out!
Growing longer and longer, and back to brunette with some blonde and red highlights thrown in.
And here we are today, sooooo long, and ready for at least a trim. And yes, a color. (Do not click and enlarge this pic or my roots will scare you, for sure.)
So what's your vote? Trim, cut to shoulder, or back to the bob? Will I regret it if I cut it? I always think when looking back at old pics of my Mom that she looked the prettiest with her long hair.
And color? Stick with the browns? Or head back to blonde territory? Let me know and I will post a follow-up after my cut and color this weekend!
