The Evolution of My Hair

Over the years, my 'do has gone through some serious changes...warning...I am about to expose to you my hair past:

1 - 2004

This is my hair au natural...before I ever did anything damaging to it.  Ah, those were the days...

2 - Beginning of 2005

I first began getting blonde highlights

3 - End of 2005

The blonde highlights start getting more intense

4 - Early 2006

The worst picture ever.  This is what I get for getting my hair done from a place that put coupons on the back of an HEB receipt...what was I thinking?!

5 - Summer 2006

I had it with the gross blonde highlights turned full blonde hair and began dying it back to my natural color/crying every day over the fact I had ruined my hair.

6 - Fall 2006

I somehow decided it would be cute to cut my hair crazy short (and dress like a bumblebee #collegelife)

7 - Fall 2007

I graduated and was living the "big girl" life and thought it would be sophisticated to go a shade darker than my natural color.  It wasn't really a bad decision but after this color faded, I was basically back to my natural color and spent the next 6 years growing my hair out and keeping it back to it's natural color state.

8 - 2012

My natural hair once again!

9 - 2013

I started to get the itch to get highlights again so I made myself look at all my old pictures with terrible blonde highlights but took the plunge and got some subtle blonde ombre highlights which I loved!  At my last hair appointment in November, I had my stylist do a "warmer" look so my hair actually looks a little darker now (which I am not really a fan of), and I have been counting down til my next appointment (which is today!).

  5. Love the evolution pictures.. I wish I had the guts to change up my hair! I've never done ANYthing to the color which is so lame! I always think about it and have all these great plans and then I freak out when I get to the salon haha can't wait to see the new hair!
