So today I am popping in real quick to talk about hair!
My hair that is. If you haven't noticed, it tends to change a lot, and often! I recently went platinum blonde- which was a huge change for me, one that I LOVE. and honestly never thought I'd be able to pull off [without it turning pee- yellow]. And I most recently added some pink peek-a-boos [at home].
I really miss my long hair + big messy top bun. For now, my plan is to grow my hair out- and keep it blonde for a bit.
People have e-mailed asking me about my hair- who does it, what my favorite hair style has been, why I change it so much? etc. So let me answer some ?'s for yuh! + I'll share some photos of hairstyles of years past.
First, let me mention that my first job, at 14 was at a hair salon [that I believe still exists back in my home town of Fayetteville] called the Hack Shack! AND well, ever since then I have been doing my hair like crazy, and some times just looked crazy too. Hah [but really]
Most of the time I would do my hair myself. Those bangs below, I cut them. And I would just get hair dye from CVS or Sally's. For a bit, my friend Katie [making the mustache with my hair below] would do my hair, as she worked at a hair salon. Even still, I was in college- so when money was lacking, my hair was not a priority and I would just D.I.Y. DYE it!.
NOW, my good friend Lori at Union16 Salon in Studioplex, here in Atlanta does my hair. She literally is amazing with color. She has been able to drastically change my look in one day, without hardly any damage//breakage, and unfortunately with all my hair adventures through out the years I have been in the moment where [I thought] my hair was just ruined.
OH, and you saw above, back in 2008 I had a pixie cut for about 8 months. I did it for a modeling gig, then decided that wasn't my thing. So I started to grow my hair out- lets not talk about the mullet stage. hehe
Why do I color//change my hair so much?
I mean, why not? I think especially after I cut all my hair off into a pixie, I realized I wasn't as attach to my hair as I thought I was, as far as it 'making me beautiful'. Thats not to say that when I cut my hair short, I didn't have days where I felt like I looked like a boy, or at least an awful lot like my brother Blake. Because I did. I have days now, where I 'hate my hair'. But its not really my hair I'm hating....BUT that's another post, that might need to involve Dr. Phil [wink].
I guess my point is, to me my hair is just something I change like my style. Some days Im colorful + preppy like Kate Spade, the next day I'm dressed like a flower child and the following day I'm in all black.
I'm not trying to follow a trend or a person, and it's not because I 'hate my hair'. I love my hair and I am just so thankful that it allows me to do so much to it + stays healthy! [Also thankful for a hairdresser who is so patience with a client that is always changing her mind!]
AND if I wasn't a teacher and didn't have to worry so much about being a 'professional' who 'follows dress code' then I'm sure my hair would be all kinds of colors of the rainbow.
My favorite hair style? Well that would be the one that I have currently, or else I'd probably be changing it right about now! However, I have noticed that I tend to like the most drastic looks the best...the bright blonde, bright red, the dark black, and Pixie cut. I like drama with my hair, not in my personal life!
Well I hope you all enjoyed my little trip down my hair[y] memory lane! Have a fabulous week y'all!
