Not Perfect,... Just Lucky

Hair in the Last Year

Yup. It’s time for another hair-post…

So, I’m an Aries. If that means what every Astrology website says it means, then I’m impatient, prone to changing my mind, a pack leader, and someone who jumps into life with enthusiasm.

I think the biggest proof of that theory is the frequency with which I change my hair styles, cuts, and colors. I am never afraid of making big changes with my hair – not crazy changes, mind you. Sadly, I have a job and can’t go too crazy. But I’m very much a “meh, it’ll grow back!” kinda gal. Which means I usually ask for something different every time I hit the salon.

Thanks to Mac’s Photo Booth app, I’ve got some cool documentation (read: selfies) of my hair styles the last year. I really like the one I got done today because it looks really natural and should be great for summer. Plus, it’s chill enough to allow me to go drastic the next time around.

Lonnnnng ass hair, June 2nd, 2013. I gotta be honest…. I kinda miss this.
June 19th, 2013
June 19th, 2013 – I cut it all off!!!!
February 1st, 2014
February 1st, 2014 – Red. SUPER red!!
July 12th, 2014
July 12th, 2014 – Natural, neutral, and a little bit sassy.

Yeah in the last year I’ve hacked off a good 8 inches, changed colors four times, and have put my big toe back in the “blunt bangs” water. I’ll be honest… I’m NOT super excited about the layers here, but I am LOVING this ombre color.

So… I give it about three months before I switch it up again. 🙂

  • I love the selfies!!! You’re beautiful with all the different hair styles but I gotta say I love the long lion mane(that’s how I refer to my hair) the best!!

  • lol thanks! The selfies are necessary after the salon and they come out okay on my lappy. 🙂

    You can be brave too, ya know… 🙂

  • Duuuuuude I remember the wedding-hair-wait and it was awful!!! My first pic in this post is how long I had to grow my hair for the wedding, and being forced into long hair was what made me chop it all off first chance I got!

    As for the “oh the waiting time” comment, girl. I have a ‘never to be published’ post that covers all of those feelings. What a journey that was… and everyone’s is so different!

    Don’t go the box dye route unless it’s necessary. If it’s really bad, put some lemon juice on it and spend a week in the sun. It will rock! 🙂

  • I’m totally the same way. I see pics of my short hair and want it short again, and then I cut it and I miss top knots and long hair.

    Right now my hair is the longest it has been in years, and since we’re getting closer (oh the waiting time pre-engagement haha!) to getting married, hacking my hair off seems like a really stupid move at this point, so it keeps growing.

    I realllllly miss my blonde hair but I haven’t been able to justify the cost this summer, so I’ve got the natural thing happening since I’m too much of a chicken to go the box dye route.
