Posts Tagged ‘growing out your hair’

I’ll admit, I can’t take credit for that title, cause let’s face it, we all know my constant title predicament, and I’m certainly not clever enough to come up with that!  The girl from Delightfully Tacky used it for one of her posts I believe – ya’ll should check it out.

Ok, so you all might be confused as to where I’m going with this post and as to what significance it really has at all.  Well, I’ll tell you.  Hair.  That’s right, my topic is hair.  My hair, to be specific.

When I began this blog I had a cute little bob which was age appropriate at the time.  I soon grew older (as we all inevitably do) and I also got sick of having to shape the one side of my hair that always stuck out, so I got layers and started to let my hair flow the way it wanted to go.  I liked this look, but I soon wanted something different.  As a result, I decided to let my hair grow.  I’d tried it several times before but could never bear to wait out the ‘awkward length’.  Yes, you know what I mean short-haired people.  The awkward length is that portion of time when your hair reaches your shoulders and starts to splay outwards in a very… uncomfortable style.  It proceeds to stay like this for what seems like forever!  I’m pleased to annouce that I have finally gotten further than I have ever gotten before, this has been helped in part by my retained layers.  I’m still far from my goal, but I look forward to the endless array of hair styles and updos that will be at my disposal once I reach it.  …and I will forever fail to understand those people who complain of their long locks that cascade down their shoulders with ease.  I will never have that… so be GRATEFUL!!!  *pant* *pant* Ok, rant over.  Proceed with the pictures that show my four stages of hair development.  And don’t laugh, a few inches is a lot to me, ok?! 😉

hair length 1Stage 1: Cute bob.

hair length 2Stage 2:  The layers appear.

Lace and chiffon - 5Stage 3:  Approaching the awkward stage.

Pastels - 4Stage 4:  Awkward stage…

And now, the un-photographed picture of me has begun to escape the awkward stage!  Yay!

Here’s to the next few months of hard growing…

Until next time!  And I promise, the next post will be of the ball.  I was just suddenly inspired… and ya gotta make the most of that, dontcha? 😉
