If you've known me for the past five years, you know I can't go very long with one hair color. Basically, I've been told I was born with red hair, it was brown by the time I left the hospital, and turned blonde a few months later. And blonde it remained for the next 18 years of my life. Judging by my hair's own indecisiveness when I was born, it's no surprise to me that as a young adult, this urge to change hair colors would reawaken in me and never settle down.
At 18, after being tired of paying upwards of $150 every month and half for highlights, I decided to do something drastic. I died my hair dark brown with a reddish tint. It was the most drastic thing I probably could do being in a private Catholic high school. But even this change from blonde to brown shocked just about everyone I knew. (Apologies in advance for the awful image quality.)
After that, I was hooked. When I started college, I died my hair black.
Shortly after, I added pink extensions.
Tired of the black, I decided to go back to brown, but shorty after decided to start bleaching my hair. (My hair probably hated me at this point.) Oh and I chopped a bunch off.
Eventually I got it all bleached and rocked the platinum thing for a while.
Then it was time for more color. Blue this time.
I eventually bleached all the blue out, got tired of bleaching, and went back to the dark brownish red.
Then I wanted to go all red.
And since red is such a royal pain to maintain, I went back to dark brown and have been that way for a while. (A while= less than a year.) :)
And that is my array of hair colors from 2006-2011.
But I've got the urge for change again. That urge that can only be cured by a fresh color I've never tried before. This time, it's copper. Or natural red. Or whatever you would like to call it. :)
I've been compiling some inspiration because I really want to do it right. Here's some examples of the end result I would like to achieve. Some are a little darker than what I want but I like looking at the variation so I can find the *perfect* shade.
Just some of the many I've seen. I think when the weather gets warmer this will be on my agenda.
Anyone else out there who can't keep a hair color for more than a few months? What colors are you feeling right now?
