To do the 'Do

This post is probably more important than anything I've ever put on here ... Well, maybe not :)

I'm bored with my hair. Again.

I know, I should be happy with it, since I know it damages you hair to continuously make drastic color changes - but I cannot help myself.


******************************************

Let's take a tour of my hair through the years together ...

Highschool I hit up all kinds of colors, dark red, just some highlights, and my personal favorite (ha!) ...
Prom 2002 (all over color, not highlights)

This was 2004-ish, I think I stayed pretty much blonde or this color for my first few years out of college. (Three generations in this picture, pretty awesome, huh?)

2007 With my dear friend, Amanda :)

Spring 2008 for David's homecoming from Iraq, he prefers brunettes - so I decided to go "back to my roots" which turned out MUCH darker than I expected!

2008 with a few caramel highlights

2008, trying to lighten my color up even more before the wedding :)

Engagement pictures, Fall 2008 (Most natural-looking hair color - and favorite because it looks like it "fits" me the best)

May 2009 with my paternal grandmother, I think it shows a pretty good display of a few more highlights

Summer 2011, pardon my huge NAKED belly - but this shows my hair in all it's glory. Something about me ADORES the contrasting colors because it's different, but not like green streaks in your face trying to make a statement - ya feel me?


******************************************

So, now ... I'm thinking that it's waaay too blonde on top. And my roots looks like trailer trash 3 weeks after I get it done, which is a little crazy and too much maintenance for me. However, when it's blonde my gray hairs blend in a lot better than when it's brown!

This is what I WISH I could do, but I have about 70 pounds to lose first ...
Minus the bangs if it's this short

Or this, but in brown with some highlights ...

******************************************
However, this is realistically what I'm looking at now ...
Maybe touching my shoulders, though - in brown of course

Not a fan of her, but this captures the bang and length

Love these bangs!

So, am I crazy for considering side swept bangs - I know they can be a pain? What's the verdict on your favorite color for me?
