hairy situation

Phew, over the 2/3 hump of my 30X30 Remix Challenge... and loving that it is Friday!
Can we talk for a second about my hair? This, my friends, is my hair in its natural "style" (aka what happens when I sleep on my hair wet, and let it do its thang)... not quite anything really - not curly, not wavy, not straight... just kind of there...
I used to be really into "fixing" my hair, and actually won the Yearbook superlative for "Best Hair" in Junior High (picture perfect hot curler waves that my mom meticulously fixed for me every morning!). But now I try to be as low maintenance as possible and I think my hair is suffering. I guess you could say that my hair is healthier now from a lack of heat products that touch it... (glass half full kind of stuff!), but that is mostly just due to morning laziness!

 I am looking into mixing up my hair situation. I have only ever processed my hair once, when I got a perm upon entering high school (what was I thinking!?). I usually alternate between a cycle of growing my hair out, cutting it off to donate, then growing it back out long again. I currently am in the "growing it back out" stage after cutting off over 10 inches in December of 2010.
Right now I am really into ombre hair coloring, but also dream of one day being a red-head (crazy town!). Maybe I just need to chop it all off and be brave! Or how knows what!?
Any suggestions!?
P.S. TGIF, seriously, thank you Friday! I needed you!


  1. I love this outfit!  Your shoes are very cute.  Thank you so much for following along on my blog and all of your nice comments!  I hope you're having a good week.

  2. Loving the leather jacket - you are rockin' it :) And I really like your hair!

  4. After only ever box-dying my hair one shade darker, I went blonde two summers ago for about a year. It was drastic, but I loved it! Sometimes it's best to just go all out with what you want. Now, I'm in the stage where I've got fake-ombre hair...and I want to chop it all off too. Must be a spring thing : )

  5. Your hair looks pretty I don't know what you're talking about.  Lucky you don't have to do anything to it.  You are almost done with the challenge, yay!


  6. Wow I wish my hair looked like that when I woke up!! Love that jacket, GREAT thrift find. http://seventwentysomethings.blogspot.com/

  7. Love that motorcycle jacket with your booties for an edgy look! I am obsessed with my flat iron but I just don't have time to straighten it during the work week, sigh, so I usually just go with my natural waves. I think the ombre color would look really cool with your hair! Have a great weekend, Jessica!

  8. I wish I could just wake up and my hair look like that!  Everytime I cut my hair, I always regret it...I think I will be 80 and still have long hair.  LOL!  Super cute as usual!  Happy Friday!
