Give Me a Head with Hair, Long Beautiful Hair…

Gimme head with hair
Long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming,
Streaming, flaxen, waxen

Give me down to there hair
Shoulder length or longer
Here baby, there mama
Everywhere daddy daddy

Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it
Long as God can grow it
My hair

I am in the midst of the long and arduous process of growing out my hair. You see, I used to have wonderful, long, fabulous hair. Then my dumb ass went and, well, screwed things up. Let us look at the evolution of my hair, including some bad hair decisions.


The first picture was taken in 2004 with Kristen, and see? It’s wonderful, long, and in my natural hair color. This was before I started doing stuff to it. Then, in spring ’05, I decided to go for the heavy bang and “sparkle”. Sparkle was just mini mini mini highlights, but it opened up a whole can o’ worms. That can of worms turned into… my quasi-neapolitan-colored hair. Is it orange? Brown? Red? Blonde? I have no idea.

After that, there was a period where I dyed my hair black about 4 times. It looked sort-of ridiculous on me, even though my natural color is pretty close to black. (I tend to hide from cameras, so I can’t find any pictures of the black hairs).

Then, after the black faded, in Fall 2007, I cut all of my hair off. It was halfway down my back by that point, fried from going back and forth from black to other stuff, and needed to be cut off. Plus, e’erybody was doing it. For a year, I continued to make the bob shorter and shorter and shorter. Then, we bought my engagement ring, and it hit me.

Crap, I have to grow my hair out now. I want long hair for our wedding.

The last photo is where my hair is now. The natural color is finally back. I rarely use heat on it, and have been trying to be as gentle as possible to it so that it’ll be great-tabulous by the time June rolls around!

I’m sure so many of the brides out there are going through the same exact thing. Hair-growin’-out is a pretty common thing for wedding land.

Anybody else growing their hair out after some pretty stupid hair decisions? Did you get hit by the bob craze of ’07?

Next up: Wedding hair inspiration! Let’s see how I’ll try to put my (hopefully) long hairs to use!

    I’m with you. Growing my hair out. I ended up cutting it recently though because I was annoyed with it. Huge fail!

    I did go through the bob phase of 2007, and I loved my bob! But I think I was meant to have long hair.

    @Miss Guinea Pig: I’ve heard negative stuff about taking prenatals bc of the increased calcium. That may or may not be true. I stopped taking them for my hair after I heard that. :p

    @Miss Rainbow: I wish I could just put the super speedy on my hair so it would grooowww.

    @Miss French Fries: Lol. I know what you mean. Mine’s about at inch or two above armpit length now.

    @Jessie516: I have a feeling I’ll be the same way!

    @Miss Buttons: You could get another 2.5″ or so!

    @Anon: Yes, hers was posted on December 12th, but I originally wrote/posted this on November 28th on my personal blog.

    @Miss Frozen Yogurt: I did that so many times. I hate that in-between phase. It’ll hit my shoulders and then do a terrible flip thing.

    @Miss Spaniel: I wish there were a way to change it at will.:p

    I love Hair timeline posts!

    @Anon- I think I might have borrowed Scissors post idea with the Hair song (instead of the other way around). The song’s so perfect for these kinds of posts!

    I’ve always had my hair pretty short with the exception of when I was 16… for some reason it was down to my elbows!

    Oh that bob is rockin’. But I know…

    My SIL got hair extensions for her wedding. It is spendy, though. But her hair looked amazing AND no one could tell it wasn’t hers.

    Yes, and it amazes me how many bad hair days I am enduring (because I’m too lazy to blow dry almost 2 feet of it!) for one good hair day. It better be a DAMN good hair day.
