Hair Evolution

Since I need a “pick me up” post – I decided to make fun of myself and do a quick post on the evolution of my hair. I love to talk hair! I had my hair done yesterday and it got me thinking what will be my next new do?

Elementary, 1986: Perm. Here I am with my baby brother Scott, who just returned from his mission. I’m 11 years old. Notice the butterfly clips in my hair.

Jr. High: My 8th grade dance picture. My mom made this dress for me in my favorite color. Notice the “puff sleeves”. Can you tell I was a huge Anne of Green Gables fan?

High School: long hair, curled at ends, no bangs, a little “poof” in the front

Single Adult – long hair w/ bangs to the side

Mom: 2001 – short w/ bangs pinned w/ a bobby pin. This is cutie pie, Dylan.

2002 – Short and choppy cut with a flip and criss-crossed part

2003 -Blonde

2004 – A-line w/ bangs and choppy highlights

2005 – Still a-line w/ bangs but a more natural highlight. (Here’s when my flower hair clip obsession started.)

2006 – Bangs and shooting for long hair

2007 – Finally long hair for pony tails!

Present: long, natural highlights and low lights for a darker look, layers with very thin ends to make styling easier.

Your turn! If you post your hair evolution – be sure to comment so I can check it out!

    Your hair looks FAB!
