You may have thought my DIY undercut was a little insane. Looking back and definitely don't feel as confident about that whole decision and definitely several people who left some nasty comments on Pinterest agree (I deleted those photos on Pinterest because I felt embarrassed -- lame, but \/\/hatever!).
But there was yet another bad hair decision I made my freshman year of college: dreadlocks. On a girl with silky smooth, dead straight hair. (In other words: It DOESN'T WORK!) And my good friend Meg sent me a fond reminder of that period today, so I thought I'd share it with you.
Ready? Here's my #TBT
So, to recap. I've dyed my hair almost all colors of the rainbow since I was 12 years old. Most recently I've switched to Henna Red because I don't think all those chemicals are so good for me. I had dreadlocks in college and then had a friend do a homegrown pixie cut to get rid of them only a few months later. I've actually had several pixie cuts. I often cut my own hair (but now I have a stylist I love).
I don't know. I've always just seen hair as, well, hair. It grows. It changes. I get bored with mine often. I've never felt the need to really conform with a certain style or any anxiety about getting a bad look. It's only hair.
That all being said, I'm trying to teach Stephen some portrait taking skills. He snapped this pic of me over the weekend. I'd have to say my hair these days is definitely looking better than it has in a while. I'm getting to that point where I need to decide whether to grow or cut again.
Excuse the awkward posing. I'm (obviously) more comfortable behind the camera.
Are you adventurous with your hairstyles?
How often do you get a color or chop?
Oh, and if you're curious -- I still cut Ada's hair. She's never had a professional touch those golden locks. I follow the same method I posted about a long, long time ago. I imagine we might go for her first "real" haircut at the end of summer before she starts preschool. Or maybe not!
