Happy Humpday! It’s been a while since my last post, but as promised, I’m revealing the changes I made to my hair. It’s nothing drastic, but it’s just enough to keep me powering through this “boring” stage of my hair.
I mentioned earlier in the year that one of my goals for 2016 is to not color my hair for the entire year. The last time I colored it was November of last year, so I’m currently 5 months color-free. I’ve definitely had some urges, but I’ve managed to push through them. My reason for doing this boils down to the fact that I have darkened and lightened my hair so many times throughout the past 18 years and through my elementary years I had a perm (thanks mom!). Basically I haven’t had virgin hair since I was 2! I just want to give my poor head a rest. Don’t worry though. I’ll be back at it again in 2017!
On top of eliminating color this year, I’m trying to grow my hair long again. It’s torture really. So when I began to be inspired by all the 70’s shags I was seeing, I decided I wanted in.
My face is now framed with shaggy layers. Not too shaggy, just a little. I slightly layered the sides and back of my hair also. As my hair continues to grow out, I think I’ll continue to keep the pieces around my face shorter. Not only do I like it, but it’ll give me something to do while I wait for Rapunzel locks.
