The Many, Many, Many Verisons of... My Hair.

I really like hair. But only the hair on my head. Hair everywhere else should just stop existing. (Wouldn't that be convenient?!)

Here is my problem: I have hair ADHD.

In the last eighteen months alone I have gone through many, many hairstyles and colors. My in-laws are always surprised that my hair is different for every big family gathering. My family has stopped commenting. I think they are a little too used to it (if you know what I mean).

The funny thing is that for years I didn't touch my hair. I let it grow out and highlighted it once to twice a  year. It was a thing of beauty. I miss it terribly.

My first steps into the world of constantly changing hair was dying it red. I loved it! And then, from there, I have chopped off inches, grown it a bit and chopped it again. I have had extensions, taken them out, put them back in and taken them out.

I have come to a conclusion though... I want my beautiful long hair back. Unlike some women, my hair doesn't get all stringy and unattractive when it is long. My hair is something I have always loved and been proud of.

But, since developing hair ADHD this decision to grow my hair out has been a bit harder to keep then I would like to admit. I keep on wanting to do something to it. Anything.

It's stupid.

And it is probably fueled by the fact that I am at an awkward hair length. I have some awesome bangs, and my hair looks great in a pony tail! But if I leave it down I have the very strong feeling that it looks like I am sporting a feminine mullet.

I am not ok with this.

I have an appointment a week from Thursday. We'll see what happens between now and then. I hate wearing my hair the same way over and over and over again, so the pony tail is getting pretty old. And I am thinking it is time to go darker again...

On another note, my husband has cast his vote on his favorite hairstyle and he is definitely a fan of my long, dark hair. And, thankfully, so am I. I just hope my hair will just hurry up and grow. Like... yesterday.

Any ways, Here is a gallery of my many hairstyles over the past few years. Enjoy!

And, of course, you can always let me know what you like best! (Or just give me lots of encouragement to JUST LET IT GROW OUT ALREADY!)

Current Hairstyle

But nothing tops THIS hairstyle. Nothing.


  1. I remember when your hair was long and you said you'd never chop it off but I'm so glad you've decided to change it so many times and experiment. Honestly, you look gorgeous any way you style your hair! You just have such gorgeous hair either way! I know your anxious to grow it out so here's me encouraging your hair to "Grow baby grow!"

  2. So so many looks, I love your hairstyles, and the long look suits you so so good.

    You have a really cool blog here. Do you want to follow each other, I would love that.
