I must have had an epiphany right before my freshman year of high school, because on a whim I decided that I wanted to cut my hair short, and about 2 weeks before classes started, my mom took me to the salon and I received the chop…to right about the shoulders.
Which evolved to a short cut by my chin/ears during high school/early college.
And during college, it fluctuated between chin length and shoulder length (I won’t get into it, but I had a traumatic experience with a hairdresser who “slipped” when cutting my hair…and it was left at about 3 inches long total...even shorter than the pictures you just saw...the week before sorority recruitment. Ouch.). And, apparently I learned to like color during college, as my hair transformed into an auburn/red hue, as you can see in the photos!
College graduation came and went, and I got my first job in the real world. I was back in Florida, and back with my regular stylist, who at times will like to try new looks in my hair. For I while I sported the inverted bob with bangs.
And then I got sick of the red hair…in an attempt to return to my natural color, I dyed my hair what looked on the box to be dark brown, but turned out to be more black in reality.
This eventually washed out, and I was left with a side banged version of the inverted bob that I love.
…and then I got engaged. And I promptly decided that I am going to have to grow out my hair. Because, well…there is just not a lot of “hair”spiration, if you will, for short haired brides out there. Currently, I am pretty solidly at shoulder length...and pretty much ready to take the scissors to it myself (...self control Katie...self control....)! Let's see how far I can get it by May!
