2012, I started All Those Little Things off STRONG with some REALLY bad bangs. Cut by yours truly, they were thick, and my hair was too wavy, bangs were not a good idea. And yet for some reason, I still continue to tell people that I cut my own hair and that, "Oh I can totally cut yours, IM REALLY GOOD AT IT." People please, do not trust me.
2013 Emma and I decided it would be a fun cute idea to ombré our hair! And I'm not going to lie, the whole process was really fun, we had to dye it three times before we got our final results, which I actually was pretty proud of. In the photo above, I'm the one on the right, and I must say, when I curled my hair, it looked pretty okay.
spring of 2013. This cut was choppy and ultimately a mistake. But I guess all the layers and little spikes then made it good for growing out..?? Who knows, I think I look like a total nerd, and this is the best picture I could find...
summer 2013! The one question I have for my past self is OLIVIA WHAT IN THE HECK WERE YOU THINKING. This was easily my biggest hair mistake thus far. I'm sure blonde if professionally done and done correctly could/would be nice! It would be great! But not if you dump a whole freaking bottle of SunIn in your hair and then the next day just bleach the crap out of it and call it blonde... only for it to turn STRAIGHT UP ORANGE. Orange with dark roots. SO flattering, let me just enlighten you with a photo of how awful that was:
I'm serious guys, if you don't have the supplies for toning and touch ups or are not a professional, don't dye your hair pumpkin orange, oh uh I mean blonde. Even in this photo I look so freaking done, bags under my eyes, soft smile, orange head, just over it all.... that's what box blonde does to you folks!early 2014 I went to a pro to match my roots and dye it back to my natural color, while also giving me a "Katie Holmes" inspired haircut. My hair was dyed red, like a weird deep red, not my natural color, and I looked nothing like Katie Holmes, my disappointment level was pretty high. So much for taking it to the pros am I right?
summer of 2014 I decided to mix things all the way up and go PURPLE! Which actually lasted a very long time and was a lot lot lot of fun! Once again, Emma and I did it at home, which again, was a lot lot lot of fun. I really did like the purple quite a bit.
winter of 2014 I joined the pixie cut bandwagon! I thought that would mean the end of all things purple, but no, no matter how short I went, it still covered the back of my head. Which I didn't really like because it made me look super *edgy* if you will, and that just wasn't really my style, but whatever, the cut was cute and it all grows out right?
It's hard to even tell it's there, but it is... and it faded quickly, however that one spot NEVER. EVER. LEFT. So that's cool I guess... whatever. I'll live, it's just hair.
But hold up hold up HOLD UP, were those BANGS you saw two photos ago? YES. Okay so I went on a little fast forward tangent with the whole purple thing, but last September of 2015 I did it again, I done did it once more!! I cut my own, awful, horrid, all around terrible bangs. There were good days yes, but those were rare... EXTREMELY rare. What was I thinking? I do not know. I think I thought it would some how be better? That I knew my mistakes from the first time I cut them and that I would make it better somehow this time? Olivia, newsflash, you are no hair stylist or beauty guru, this is not your forte, quit while you're ahead with the bangs kid. Geez... Yet I love bangs so much, but know how bad they are on me that conversations with Ally go like this...
That was just a few days ago... thanks Ally. Real friends right there
second post ever. The first was just another hair tutorial, what can I say, I was a pretty skilled stylist back in the day hahaha.
And that concludes the evolution of my hair over the past four years! I laughed a good bit looking back at all my weird hair styles, I hope you did too! xo
