Alright here goes…
I’m looking for something to do to my hair.
I did just dye it with a red tint.
I’m also waiting for my pink and purple dye to get here so I can do like the last 3″ or so in those two colors.
So, I’m giving myself plenty of time to deliberate over what I should do with my hair after that.
I cannot rush into anything or make quick rash decisions when it comes to my hair.
I like my hair..now.
It’s long, it’s soft, it’s shiny.
It wasn’t always that way.
30+ years ago I barely had any hair.
Truth: I pulled most of my hair out at 13? because of stress and other issues.
So, now that it’s nearly waist long I have some anxiety about cutting lots of it off.
Though, I do know I need to do something…
So, help a girl out…
This is what I have to work with…
and the back…
First, let me explain something.
I fear cutting my hair…literally!
The last time I got it cut was 2 summers ago and the lady hacked off way more than she was supposed to.
The time before that was probably 4 yrs prior and same deal, stylist said she’d trim it and I ended up with hair that barely touched my shoulders!
Since then I trim my own hair!
Yep, you know put your hair in a pony tail and cut part of it or bend over at waist and cut it and if that fails then you ask your ex to just cut a straight line going across your back!
That’s how much I dread going to a salon.
Then after the butcher cut and dye job the igit did on Christa’s hair at Regis a few months ago, I really fear having anyone do anything to my hair!
Of course in searching for possible hairstyles, I’ve discovered everything I like falls under Boho or Bohemian style…
In the fashion world, bohemian, or boho, refers to a a state of mind regarding fashion that is individual, romantic, and free-spirited. This style is often called hippie-chic, or even hobo-chic.
Boho-chic doesn’t just mean flowy peasant skirts and flip flops, and messenger bags. An important aspect of bohemian style is individuality; this means embracing your own personality and expressing it through your fashion choices. Bohemian style may be described as a trend with certain looks to follow, but it’s really all about following your own inspirations.
So, what do I do?
I like my color so that’s not a factor here…
*update* perhaps I’m not ok with my hair color, Christa’s suggesting caramel blonde?…HELP me!
wish I could see these pics of blondes as brunettes but regardless based on style do any of these look like me
Kinda ironic that I can’t stand Serena as a character on Gossip Girl (at least in the season I’m on now via Netflix — and yes, I watch Gossip Girl!) but yet like this style…
Originally I pinned this image because I want the dress…
now looking at it, I kinda like the hair too but still having anxiety issues with going shorter!
Meanwhile a friend of mine suggested this hair style
While I’m leaning more towards this one…
And, I did just order purple haze & cotton candy pink from Manic Panic to dye the ends of my hair
Imagine this pic without the aqua and blonde…
Yet, I do kinda maybe possible like this…
but, my hair isn’t naturally wavy and yes I know I can make it that way
alas…I’m a wash and go type of girl
I do not know how to use a blow dryer, flat iron or curling iron.
and, yes I know IF I don’t like it, it’ll grow.
But danged, hair only grows 1/2 inch a month!
Y’all do remember how impatient I am right?!
*another update since original posting*
Maybe I’ll just GI Jane and shave it all off and then won’t have to worry about upkeep or anything else!
I do not.will not.can not use a blow dryer or any other hair tool
So, what does a girl do who washes her hair and runs out the door…
Question of the day
what do you think I should do?!
