My Hair Through The Years....

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Hands up, who here is constantly getting bored of their hair....... I know I do on a daily basis, I have a running joke with my hairdresser than she never knows what I'm gonna say to her when I go in.

I go blonde, I go brown, I go in between, I want a bit of red, I want a fringe, I'm bored with my fringe, I want peroxide, The root upkeep is too much... its endless.....
At the moment I am sort of in my inbetweeny stage (is inbetweeny an actual word??!)
I had my hair dyed a sort of warm brown colour back in November, basically because the blonde root upkeep was driving me insane. But after a few weeks of colouring it fades and goes lighter by the day.
Maybe I am meant to be a blonde after all ;)

Anyways, while I mull over my next hair move I thought I would give you guys a brief rundown of my hair over the last 12 years or so..

The red phase, I think this is around 1999. A time when clearly I thought fiery red hair, and a rock hard hair sprayed fringe was suitable

Next came the L'oreal No 10 Box Dye phase. This lasted for a few years.

Then came the invention of GHD's. Still blonde but with caramel tones.

Ahhh the yellow blonde, short bob, straight hair look.

Decided to let it grow and go a more mousey brown colour, keeping it a more wavy Au naturel look.

Didn't last long tho, the peroxide is here and so is the length.

Still bleaching it blonde, adding a fringe.

The root upkeep was too much so I opted for a warm brown do, a few days after this pic was taken my hair went green. The different hairdresser I used forgot to use a reddy based brown dye. I wasn't impressed.

They soon rectified this and I stayed a warm brown for a while.

Yep, getting bored again, I've added some blonde highlights.

The blonde came back..... 

And then it went again.

This last picture was taken last week.
This is the current colour of my hair.

I have to admit I miss my blonde hair, but can I be bothered with the upkeep??? 

Off to the hairdressers at the end of the month..... what shall I do??? Arrrrgh!!!
