Ok! So I know this post is a little photo heavy but there's so much to see! I thought I would give you a little insight into all the horrible things I've done to my poor poor hair. It's a chance to look back at all the different styles and colours I've tried over the years, and if anything, it's a good laugh!
So this is me trying daring hairstyles from a young age... born a natural blonde!
So this is a chance for you to say 'aw isn't that adorable' and a chance for me to show my natural colours, and my mums god awful fringe cutting skills.
I think I'm about 11 in this photo? Up until this point I didn't really do much with my hair, to be honest I don't think I was too fussed. I was a bit of a tomboy and just let it grow all natural, long and wavy.
Now this is when I had my first drastic hair cut, I remember it so well because my mum almost cried, and had to leave the room while the hairdresser cut my hair. I felt like I needed a massive change, my daddy had just passed away (boohoo) and it was almost like that feeling you get when you break up with a boyfriend (rubbish comparison I know) but with a change of lifestyle comes a new haircut - it was very therapeutic! So I had this very on trend at the time cut going on, with choppy layers, this was also when I started putting a few highlights in.
This is the beginning of a phase that I really can't apologise for. I'd call this the rebellious stage of my life. Whilst away with my 'step family' for a month in Australia (amazing by the way) my step sister and I made a cheeky trip to the supermarket to buy some hair dye, then hid in the bath room and we both dyed our hair brown/black with out telling anyone. I cannot tell you the amount of trouble we got in. My mum got the shock of her life when I came back to England! Woops.
Then this happened. Hello emo! Sporting the mullet-extensions look. To be honest I have to say this point in my life was so much fun. I really enjoyed being a little bit wild and everyone thinking I was a weirdo. I thought I looked great! This side to me has never left me really, every thing that I liked back then I still like now (music etc), I just don't have the image to go with it!
Moving on to about 2008 now and I dyed my hair back blonde! Hurraahhh! I remember it being so difficult though, it took two rounds of bleach at the hairdressers to get that horrible gingery colour out. but we managed it.
After leaving school I got my old fringe cut in again, then quickly decided I didn't like it! I'm pretty sure it made my face look a bit chubby.
This is a bit more recent, Christmas 2011, by this time I changed my ombre slightly by moving the blonde lower down, I wasn't completely happy with how it was before.
