The Hair Chronicles

Since I am in the business of transformation, I thought it would be fun to do a timeline of myself...to see just how much I've changed over the years. The first couple of pictures are pretty innocent, sweet:) And then...Hello...perm central. My mother was a master at giving me the finest curls that this time period had to offer and I was a master in teasing the you know what out of it. Haha...I really truly thought I was styling. Then I went to college and realized there was no place for my big hair and went the opposite direction with straight bleach blonde neon hair(plus it was said at the time to be a UT cheerleader you had to have blonde hair, pretty sure this was just a myth but I totally took it seriously). My friend and I would go to the store and buy the same box of blonde and we would color each others hair every 3 or 4 weeks...that is until our hair got so out of control with color bands after each application that we finally succumbed to getting a professional to fix it. From there, I let it grow back out and kept my natural color as you can see in the next pictures with my sister and our "brotha". One even has me sporting my natural curls(as I do have natural wavy hair...a style that I seldom wear). I guess I was having separation anxiety from the blonde and totally ran back for the box in the next couple of pictures...but not without a temporary detour as a red head. Woohoo...was that fun. I totally let my feisty side rear up with this hair color...and...totally got away with it. I finally settled on the Neapolitan Ice Cream look. I was known as the girl with pink hair and wore that title proudly for 5 or 6 years until I realized I was frying the crap out of my hair. So, I decided that something more exotic was in order...the last picture is the result and there is where my hair journey has halted. I'm going on 5 years with this persona and we're nearing the mark for a possible shift. We'll see. I'm actually quite happy with my current color and style...so I think I'll stay here a little while longer but you never know. It's a girl's prerogative to change her mind on a whim and with me working in such a creative environment, I'm sure holding out is going to be that much harder:)
