This was one of my senior pictures in high school. I dyed my hair dark the weekend of the pictures, and I think my mom was pissed because it really didn't look much like ME.
In college, I used to highlight it myself with "Frost N Glow". My hair is THICK, as you can see here.
This picture was only a couple of weeks after the one above. Looks like I did some self-highlighting again.
Then later (still in college), I went DARK again.
And then light again. You can see the thickness again here. This was after a weekend at the beach, so I hadn't flat ironed my hair like I normally do.
At some points, I embraced my natural color, which is more of a dirty dishwater blonde. I usually only like this color on me when I'm really tan. This picture was from the day before the wedding.
Just a few weeks after the wedding, in NOLA. Humidity and my hair are friends. My natural color, but after being in the sun a bit more. Once we got back from NOLA, I chopped it all off, thinking it would make me look older. I HATED it short--it took forever to "do", and I always felt frumpy.
This past winter (my hair grows fast, doesn't it! The above picture was Aug '07, this one was April '08), I went seriously blonde again.
This past August, I had them add some espresso colored low lights in. I think that I'm going to have them do this again. I liked my cut here much better than my cut now. The last girl that I had sucked, and the layers are all effed up. I think I might just let them grow out for awhile.
