and now i have to decide what exactly i love the most, or perhaps that i want to try something totally new. so let's start here, in high school. because let's be honest, i didn't really know what my hair was doing pre-10th grade. (did anyone? please say no)
the "high school teenager".
long, natural with layers.
(and look! my natural hair color! kind of ashy, blondy, browny, natural. a.k.a. there's a reason i color it. but nice cut!)
the "soccer player." half bleached from the sun, half bleached from a box. all over a good time because i was the hot tan chick with the convertible & the studly boyfriend. (high school was the best for like .2 seconds)
the "my boyfriend didn't own me, so i chopped my hair, and then he broke up with me, so i made a dinosaur shirt." natural curl, fake blonde. (at least that guy ^ kinda liked it? also pictured, THAT SHIRT. can we please talk about that shirt.)
the "sexy brunette" thing with hand-cut (a.k.a. did it myself) layers all the way up my head. YUM.
the "first half of senior year sexy va-va-volume brunette a-line"
the "i tried bleaching my hair by myself and it turned orange, so i tried it again and it was still orange so i got it color corrected brown with blonde highlights." mid-part of senior year.
the "sun-bleached second-half of senior year/summer/college get up a-line SO MUCH SEXY so much sass"
the "dating nick, i'm too poor to touch up my roots brownish-blondish" (sorry about my eyes staring into your soul.)
the "engagement pictures" super brunette mid-length haircut, SO SEXY.
the "zooey deschanel kind of?" (+++ a tiny baby koda bear!!)
the "19th birthday makeover" curly dark hair with a hint of blonde streak, so christina perri-esque.
the "ack! blonde streak/my hair is so long i don't know what to do with it anymore! but still kind of easily sexy" do you want scones with that?
the "sweet sigh of relief! purple and black fohawk" ah man. so sweet.
the "wedding photo booth almost blonde grown out fohawk" that i totally love.
the "growing out a-line, fading-reddish-brunette" that happened to be much better looking than the previous "grown out fohawk that really was just a mullet" (not pictured, because.)
which is the style i'm currently rocking the grown out version of.
isn't hair SO FUN? ah. loooove it.
there's also a special mention..
the "NYC vacation braided crown." i mean really. is my hair ever going to be perfect on vacation & get me through that east coast summer humidity as well as THIS^^? (also, hi natural hair color!)
and on that note, we head to the "faux pas" special selection section:
the "washington d.c. humidity love" (+ that guy ^ who apparently digs it when i just don't have it together)
the "engagement skunk" (+ the guy who loves me all the time, even enough to ask me to marry him while i look like that)
the "real life afro" (totally my real hair, do you want me to teach you?)
the "west side story puerto rican"
and last but the opposite of least...
the "crusty 8th grader." (click to view)
which is thankfully the only image i have of myself during that ... special time.
anyway, who knows what i'll end up with next. maybe something pink or rain-bowy? uneven bob? a nice melt? i guess only time and 20 seconds of bravery (or emotional instability) will tell.
