New Hairstyle – Still Blonde, New Bangs

Thank you all for your feedback on my hair crisis post. What would I do without you all? Seriously. You gave me some super helpful advice that led me to this decision…

morgan-bangsI’m staying blonde and just added some bangs.  I’ve had an irrational fear of getting bangs since birth, I’m not even lying (okay maybe a little), so this was a HUGE step for me.


Since you girls said you love having them and they’re fun and flirty and versatile, I decided to just join the club already. I think I’m liking it!

We’ll just see how I feel when I have to style them on my own. Eep.

Senior photo – hated my hair that day.

Chunky highlights (Sarah, recognize this place? haha)

Getting lighter…

Blonde and some roots at Steph’s wedding.

Fried blonde

Getting darker…

The Big Black Mistake.

aaaand the dark, growing-out, in between, sucky stage.

As you can tell, I have some hair issues.  Let’s not talk about the first half of my life — I don’t hold myself fully responsible for that mess.  But since I’ve been coloring my hair, I have yet to commit to a single shade for more than a few months.  I’ve been black, blonde, and everything in between.  I have my favorites, and I have my those-photos-need-to-be-destroyed-not-so-much-my-favorites.

Tomorrow I have an appointment and I’m dying (get it, DYE-ing?  har-har) for a change.  I already know I’m going to keep growing it out… I’ve commanded my hair stylist not to let me talk her into cutting a bob again (those things are the devil to grow out, let me tell ya…), but the color is the big question.

So now what?  Suggestions?  Is anyone as color-happy as I’ve been?
