So I am just posting this because Im silly and excited and............I dont know why else. Cuz I love you guys?<br><br>
I have been blonde or blonde highlights all my life. The usual, started out blond as a child, got darker and kinda drabby as I got older, so I started hilighting and playing with color. Ive been red and mohgony, but somehow always managed to go back to blond. Well recently I went brunnete. Its pretty dang close to my natural color, maybe a smidge darker.<br><br>
Well, as history shall repeat, ive had enough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> So I have an appt tonight to get my highlights back. But just incase you like the before and after effect.<br><br>
Here is me from Easter Sunday, how I wear my hair half the time, down and curly.<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/album.php?albumid=315&pictureid=1464" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...pictureid=1464</a><br><br>

I think you look gorgeous with dark hair. I'm interested to see how the blonde looks, because you look so natural as a brunette to me! I never would have pegged you as a blonde.

My get the highlights back appointment is Thursday. I know where you are coming from. As the years progressed, my light brown hair turned more gray and what wasn't gray, turned really dark but because I have colored for years, no one noticed the darkening.<br><br>
Last time I had my hair colored, she covered the highlights and put it back to a shade or two lighter than my natural color. (a dark brownish black)<br><br>
Not good. Many people said to me "wow, you colored your hair" and they didn't mean it in a good way. My dear aunt, who would never say anything snarky, waited until I mentioned I really didn't like the color to tell me that she didn't either!<br><br>
Bring on the highlights, summer is coming!<br><br>
I like you haircut.

Wow, thank you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/Sheepish.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sheepish"><br><br>
I know, isnt it funny. I was thinking the same thing, and i have been blond FOREVER. I thought about posting an older photo from when I was blonde, but thought this would be more fun. Clean slate and all.

Thats REALLY funny because the only reason I went this dark was because my grandmother is no longer with us (Its been almost a year) She would have KILLED ME if she saw it. The blonder I was, the more she liked it.<br><br>
And thank you, although its not much of a haircut. Its just very long layers with some side swipey bangs and some growing in stuff around my widows peak and ears from when all my hair fell out after having matthew. I was like BALD in some places. The second two pics I have half my hair pulled up in a twist of sorts.

Maybe it's your user name, but I always imagined you as a blonde. Either way, you are lovely <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Wow, you don't look anything like I pictured you. You are really gorgeous! Not that I pictured you as non-gorgeous, just a different looking gorgeous person. Gah! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/footinmouth.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="footinmouth"><br><br>

You ladies are making me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/Sheepish.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sheepish"><br><br>
So here it is. Its not as bright as I wanted, but we had a hard time getting the ends to lift because of the dark color that were on them. It will get brighter over time. The blue flower is me being festive. HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I feel younger.<br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/album.php?albumid=315&pictureid=1506" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...pictureid=1506</a><br><br><a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/album.php?albumid=315&pictureid=1507" target="_blank">http://www.mothering.com/discussions...pictureid=1507</a><br><br>
PS4624, When I was in highschool, and in cosemtology, I had a booboo with an experiment that had my hair so freaking yellowish blonde, it reminded me of PEE. I also abused the tanning bed at the time, as most stupide teenagers tend to do. Go with the fact that I was a bit of a partier, and not much of an eater, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hide.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hide">, I earned the nick name Barbie from my BFF. She still calls me that to this day.<br><br>
InMediaRes, you crack me RIGHT UP! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao"><br><br>
Leaning_mum, thank you very much. You ladies sure now how to build up a girls confidence, which is something Ive always struggled with. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

It looks great! I'm going in for pretty much the same cut this afternoon. If I ever get up the guts to dye, I'm thinking mine would end up looking alot like that. It's very dark now and I'd love to try some blondeish highlights.
