I have pretty fine hair that’s extremely straight, so ever since I was 15 I have kept my hair in some sort of a bob haircut. There was that brief time that I had a pixie cut in college and then when I grew it out for Michael (hate to say that most guys like long hair). He admitted it wasn’t all that great long, so I ditched it. I have the type of hair that extensions were invented for. On the rare occasion that it cooperated, it would do this…
…but for the most part it looked like this…
…I know, right. Bleh!
So then I met Andrea, and my hair life started looking way up! Finding a good hair dresser is right up there on the list of things that every girl wants. N’est-ce pas?
In no particular order....and scrounged from the very few pictures of me that actually exist since I take most of the photos (I know you mamas are in the same boat unless you have a photographer hubby).
I thought the cut and highlights of this one were great. It’s pretty much my go-to look. Just a little asymmetry with chunky but not too chunky highlights.
This was later that summer. I got more highlights to where it pretty much turned blonde. It was fun while it lasted, but I’m not a blonde. This is a bad cell phone pic taken on my 30th birthday. I also used the Chi to give it some waves and messy look. I miss doing that...hmm..I'll have to do that when I have a few extra minutes sometime.
Oddly enough, this was the very next morning. Looks totally different, doesn’t it? (I had my head buried in my cell phone, but that means you can see the color better.)
And this was the day before. I give this the “most versatile style” award.
This was the spring of that year. Subtle highlights, nice and soft cut. (Stupid smile.) And then I got bangs but constantly wore them to the side because they drove me crazy. Sometimes I liked them, but mostly I was annoyed by them. I did the Chi curl thing this time, too.
And whenever I think that I can just tell Andrea what I want instead of letting her have complete creative control, I think of this haircut. This was ALL me. Gross, right?! WTH!!!I liked this next one a lot. The darker color with highlights was great, and these bangs were very versatile. But again, I kept getting tired of them.
But then I got this same cut again when I was pregnant with Isaac, and let me be the first to say that it did not look cute on my chubby face. I thought that getting the bangs thicker might help, and I think it did, but still.
It’s hard to believe that this was all in the span of 9 months. Ha! I do like the darker ones – maybe this fall again.
This is pretty much what I have right now, although we made the asymmetry a little less drastic and it’s just slightly longer.
And this was just a few weeks ago.
So there you have it. What's your go-to look? I'd love for you bloggers to post your past hair-styles! What's more fun than talking hair?! I'll link you if you do!!! Stay cute, y'all!
