The Evolution Of Hair?

This post is a little different than all the others. But I wanted to point out that a little over a year ago I made a drastic decision that has affected this entire year, and possibly the rest of my life.

Not really. And it's not really that big of a deal. This time last year I cut my hair.

Senior Picture 2006

This is me. This is the me from the past 10 years. That's right. For almost an entire decade I looked like this. My color might change a bit here and there but for the most part this was it.  I started growing my hair out when I was in 7th grade. I just let it go. It became my staple. I never thought about cutting it. After I had Story I considered chopping it all off. You know, getting one of those new mom do's. But I talked myself out of it.

When Jordan and I got engaged I knew I wanted to keep my hair long for the wedding. After that I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it.

In October of 2010 I took the plunge.

And was severely punished for it. This is the look I wanted.

I even gave the lady this picture. Not sure what happened there.....

Back home I went, nearly in tears that I had destroyed my hair. On the bright side, I was able to donate 16 inches to locks of Love. 

I knew I had to fix the color. I also knew I was not going to spend an outrageous amount of money getting it professionally done.

Insert the cheapest boxed color at Walmart.  And this is how it stayed. For almost the entire year. Of course it grew, and grew.

And I got bored with it. And it was a hot summer. And I must have lost my mind.

Because I cut it all off and colored it black :) I completely regret the color and now have to go through a very long process of getting it back to my "natural" color.

But it's growing again. And I'm okay with it.

You could say I'm not the same person. And I'm okay with that too :)
