Before: It’s long it’s ombre and it is a bit of a mess…
I finally did it and chopped my hair off. I think I and many other women have such odd relationships with hair, hair cuts, and hair colours. Not only do I always want what others have, but especially when I was younger, I always wanted to do new or different things with my hair whenever there was a bit of a life change!
After: It’s brown, it’s chopped and I love it!
My hair has been short, long, brown, black, blonde, purple, green, fringed, not fringed, ombred, highlighted and probably many other things, l thought I would reflect on a few of the various phases…
Yep very blonde, I also used to carry a few more pounds so the face is looking a lot rounder here!
Bleaching it just wrecks it, I don’t have the time nor the patience to keep up with blonde hair so it just ends up being wrecked but I did keep it blonde from about 16-18. I did like being blonde, I always felt a bit more sunny but even with ombred blonde, it just was not sustainable, so expensive and eventually not worth it!
Yep it was black, apologies for the terrible picture quality, my phone was basic in those days!
Black hair was a definite phase in my life – mainly when I lived in America and whenever I felt like being a bit rebellious as it seems everyone in my family did not like the black hair colour. I can see that it is a bit harsh on my skin tone but I think everyone has a hair colour which they love but in reality is not the best option.
A bit of a darker brown here with a fringe!
I’ve been every shade of brown, but my natural is quite a mid brown which I am beginning to embrace! I probably have natural brown hair for the first time since I started dying my hair about 9 years ago. For a long time, I thought it was boring but I am starting to embrace the brown! It is obviously easy to upkeep but I think it does compliment my skin without washing me out.
Odd colours, this was also a definite phase, the need to put crazy colours in my hair was a teenager thing. I do still get the odd urge to put pink or purple in but I have realised that this always only looks good for about a day, is hard to sustain and in a corporate job is just not going to happen! Can we also please reflect for a moment of the time I dyed my hair orange? Yep the joys of being 15!
Anyway, I was just reflecting after my hair cut, I am loving the chop, my hair feels so light and so much less straggly! Hopefully going to keep it this way for awhile. I also hope you appreciated a few pictures from the more awkward phases in my life, I definitely feel a lot more confident in my twenties compared to my teens! What’s your fave hair colour? Do you have odd relationships with colours like I do? Did you dye your hair orange at 15?
