I Need a Hair Style Change!!!
I have had the same hair all my life. At times I added bangs to my hair style, but it really hasn't changed a bit since I was three years old. I am three there on the right, and four years old on the left. Not much of a difference, huh? Really, it look almost just like that in my senior pictures. But let me show you some other pictures in between Pre-K and my senior year of high school. That was first grade. Wow, big change here. Well, I have a different dress on. Now on to third grade. In the third grade I got glasses. I loved my pink framed glasses. Hello, Andrea? The eighties are calling and they want their red sweater and funky back ground back. Bangs, are you still there? Yep, they sure are. Now, when I got into the fifth grade, my really cool biggest sister, who was in high school did my bangs for my school picture. Can you say, "Hello 1990's!"I did get my hair shortened a bit. Now, the summer of my fifth grade to sixth grade year I begged my mom for a perm. I hated my straight hair. But do you all see how short it was there? Yeah, and I wanted spiral curls. And my mother let me do it!! Yikes!! So, by the time my sixth grade pictures came along, my perm was very poorly taken care of, and I forgot it was picture day and I do not think I even brushed my hair. But I did get new glasses!! Holy Huge Glasses Batman!! But that was the style back then, I promise. Then the eight grade game along. And thank goodness for good friends who taught me how to do my hair. Well, at least brush it. Oh those overalls were so cool. I remember getting them passed down to me and I was so excited. My bigger sisters, I had three, were soooooo cool. And I loved wearing their old clothes. I also remember that morning of the 8th grade school pictures. My mom was putting my hair up "half and half" when I got frustrated with my bangs. I cut them. Yep, they are not curled in that picture but cut. I had such great fashion sense. Then High School came. I was a freshman hottie. I finally brushed my hair and left my bangs alone. I also had volume, where did that come from? I wish I had that volume now. I will skip my other high school pictures because they all look the same with a different shirt and my hair is just a bit longer. So, here is my senior picture. Same glasses and same hair, just a bit longer. I remember before that picture was taken my friends and I wanted to bleach our hair. So, instead of buying some hair dye, I actually used bleach. Let me tell ya, I had a really clean scalp! I am lucky my hair didn't fall out. I was informed later that hair dye and bleach are too very different things. Thank goodness my hair didn't fall out. I am a true blonde. Now on to what I look like now.Not much different, a bit chubbier, and all I did was get new glasses and push my bangs over to the side. I am pathetic. I really need a new hair style. So, today I was playing around at In Style, the Hollywood Hair Makeover site. It's so much fun. And it's free and you don't have to register to do it. Just upload your picture and put new hair on your head. So, here I go. This is me with Carrie Underwood's hair. I could do this style now, if I knew how to do my hair. I am hair stupid. Here I am with Hillary Clinton's hair. I think Mr. Cowboy would die if I came home looking like this. Oh so funny!! But seriously here are some I really liked. I really want to be girly, but my sister told me this was too froo froo for me. I wish I could get my hair to curl like that. This one is dark and short. I like it, but I know my hair would be way flatter than that. It would be stuck to my head. I would have to know what products to use. Move over Hilary Duff, here I come. I think that is too much hair. A 50's do. I really like this but I know I would not curl it every day. So, here is my favorite. Even though I wanted to keep my hair long, I think I like it shorter. I could also pull it back to look like this.So, what do you think. Should I keep my hair long and just put more layers in it and just curl it when I want to? Or should I be bold and cut is shoulder length or shorter!!! Oh, and if anyone has some product information they would like to share with me, I am an open book. All I use is a leave in detangler! Simplicity.
