Anybody that knows me, knows I’m always changing and evolving. Whether it be my mind-set on topics, eating habits, hair style/color; the list is endless.
I have been dying my hair for as long as I can remember, and when people ask “whats your natural hair color” I answer “honestly I don’t know”. (ayyye I did some digging in photo albums, exact date of first dye March 2011).
So, I have put together a timeline of my hair recently.
May 2016; Brown
August 11, 2016; Red-Brown
This happened because I have always had variations of brown, and wanted to change things up for the start of Junior Year. Not my best/favorite move…
August 11, 2016
October 22, 2016
November 10, 2016; Dark Brown
After that, I felt like I needed to go back to brown, which ironically is why I wanted to go red. And I cut off a few inches.

January 5, 2017; Brown with hints of Purple and Pink
SOOO… this is a bit drastic than what I usually do. I wanted to have vibrant colors in my hair without it being full coverage.
Emily suggested we bleach pieces, basically chunky highlights, so the purple will show up differently on the bleached vs brown. Knowing me, I just agree, because WHY NOT. Resulting in spending 5 hours in the chair, but I loved it.
after bleach, some red showed up

last day with the purp
February 23, 2017; The start of being a Blonde
The purple was fun, but short lived because I wanted to go blonde for Prom.
I walked into the salon, and the other stylist go “what are you doing now?”. At this point I have no expectations, all I know is that I want to bleach my hair and see how blonde it gets.
It wasn’t too bad, pretty even coverage for the first round. The only thing that stood out was the pieces that framed my face were still brown. I bought purple shampoo to try and reach maximum blondness.
I went back on April 6, 2017: and everything got blonder except the pieces I wanted, some in the back of my head where almost white!
My hairstylist knew I wanted the whole purpose of this transition to blonde was for prom, and with it right around the corner we knew the brown would show up in pictures. So I came in on April 19, 2017, two days before prom, and got a touch up with bleach.
The END GOAL of three bleaching sessions and lots of purple shampoo, April 22, 2017, she did my prom hair; 2 braids with a bun and curls.
November 2017; Purple
