Adventures in Hairstyles

Don't you just love change?  Well....most people would say no.  But I kind of do. Maybe it's years of the nomadic animator lifestyle, but I just love it when things change up. Keeps life more interesting and new, like an adventure. I have a bad (or good?) habit of changing up my hair completely every year or so. It was due for a change recently, as it had been growing long for quite some time now.  I'd changed up the color this past summer to a light blonde, which I hadn't done before. Everyone loved it. EVERYONE. I liked it...but I didn't love it. To me it felt too...I don't know...typical?  Hollywood?  FEMININE?  In any case, long blonde curls were just not for me anymore. So I went back to a dark blonde and short style. I feel more like myself in it.

I kept my hair short throughout my teenage years so maybe it's the nostalgia working, but I feel younger and more free with short hair. And the bleaching from the super blonde highlights were causing a lot of damage to my hair so hopefully this will help the health of it all. All in all, a good change!
