I recently re-saw a picture of myself when I had a short, chin length bob haircut a few years back and it got me thinking about the changes my hair (and everyone else’s hair) has gone through.
I’ve had this thing since about high school where I’ve let my hair grow super long, then I get sick of it and chop it all off. I immediately regret it, and begin the growing out process again. I’m on my fourth year of growing out the bob haircut pictured above. Even that went through some reincarnations.
Here I am at my blondest ever, but it only lasted about two months because the color turned brassy very quickly.
I then grew it out a little bit more, went coppery, and let the bangs grow too.
I was even doing the ombre thing before it was cool
And just kind of let it grow out and get to my natural darker color from then on out.
And longer and longer, sometimes darker and darker
Stopping for bangs sometimes in between
I’ve more or less spent the last two years in this stage of long brown/auburn hair, sometimes with bangs, sometimes without
I’m pretty sure it’s the Leo in me that’s so obsessed with my hair (it’s our “mane”) and I really feel like I need a big change. My brain keeps telling me to cut it short again. But I’m enjoying the idea more of going very light with long hair, but my concerns are would I look good blond and can I afford the upkeep that someone with dark hair has to pay to be blonder? Maybe the haircut route should be the one I take after all? I mean, I do have a lifetime to grow it long again. I feel like everyone with long hair is giving up and just coloring the ends of their hair with the ombre trend, I don’t want to go that way.
Any other leo’s or hair sympathizers out there than can share how they feel? (it’s one of the few vanities about myself that I allow). See my Girls With Long Hair board on Pinterest to see how much I dream about long hair.
