When I did Liebster Blog Award post, I got a question about my hair journey. Did I ever had any crazy hair colors? You can bet I did. So I asked you guys would you like to see my hair journey in blog post and some of you said yes. That’s what we’re doing today. I have to warn you, the cringe factor is high with this one. Basically we all made mistakes in past, with hair, makeup, style, behavior. The most important thing is that we are constantly learning and improving. Let’s get on with fun stuff, my hair journey. God please help !
First hair experiment I had when I was 3 years old. I did it myself. Basically kids like to play around I suppose, so I played hairdresser. I chopped my freaking bangs. It looked bad, super short and uneven. My mum almost had a heart attack. I found super old picture of me as a kid. I mean quality is pretty bad, but you can see my hair the most importantly. Damn, I looked good, that outfit though. Second photo is my natural hair color, just for reference.
Then I really didn’t experiment a lot. I had basically the same hairstyle, short bob with bangs. I had it for I think 13 years with variations of long hair in between . I still think that bob is the best hairstyle. I find it super chic.
So the first time I dyed my hair I was 17. I dyed my hair purple. Wow, I was pretty brave in high school. You can see, it was pretty intense. To be honest I think it looked amazing. I think that color is awesome. Would I have it right now, oh God no. I think it’s perfect hair color for teenager who wants to experiment. I had purple hair for a year probably. Then I dyed my hair dark chocolate brown, that is basically my natural hair color.
Then, we come to my 1st year of University, where I did something pretty stupid. I always wanted that beautiful honey color hair. I thought about it a lot. Here is a fun fact about me, if I want to so something, I’ll do it no matter what others tell me. If it’s stupid, doesn’t matter, because I’m super stubborn. So, I decided to buy hair lightening kit and basically do it at home. Never do that! I’m telling you, learn from my mistake. I looked jacked up. The cringe, oh my God. The top of my hair was honey color, or “strawberry blonde” if you want. The rest of my hair was dark brown. Can you imagine how crazy it looked? Thank God my hair dresser is really good at her job. She fixed my mistake with mixture of acids, it’s not ideal, but it worked. Basically she didn’t bleached my hair, she just lighten it up couple of tones. Then I had the hair that I always wanted. Did it look good on me. Honestly I don’t think so. I will insert pictures how it looked on sun light and in artificial lighting.
It was intense hair color. My mum hated it and actually now I can see why. I don’t think this hair color suited me. I mean look at my brows, so freaking dark. Btw, my makeup skills were bad. That eyeliner, OMG. Also, I plugged my eyebrows so much at that time. Honestly, what was wrong with me? Why no one told me how bad it was? At that time slim eyebrows were really popular. Also I always hated how thick and hairy my brows are, but now I actually appreciate that. You grow, you learn people. I learned my lesson for sure. This honey color was hard work. I needed to lighten my hair every second month, because it was going dark brown. I got tired of it and I went back to dark brown. I think even my hair was telling me what suited me the best.
Then I discovered sombre hair. You know that trend? It’s basically soft ombre hair. I’ll insert pictures so you guys can see how beautiful it looked on my hair. Yeap, my hair was super long. I had this hairstyle for quite a long time. Then I wanted a change again. So I chopped all of it to short bob again. I just love that hairstyle. Now my hair grew a little bit and I have long bob with balayage hair. It’s basically similar to sombre, just a lot more natural. It’s basically that sun kissed hair look. You can see my current hair style and color in intro picture.
These two photos were taken the same day. Quite a change, right? I love to experiment with my hair, that’s why we have this post. If you want to know what I’m wearing in these photos check out my outfit post here.
So that was my hair journey. Did you like it? Do you think I come far? I’m pretty happy with my hair at the moment. I learned my lesson guys. Your natural hair color is most suitable for you probably. I hope this post was fun to read, did you have good laugh? I hope you did, I made this post just to be fun and entertaining.
