Eeek! I almost forgot about the Friday Five!
1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?
My hair’s naturally wavy. I need a good blowout or lots of styling goo to get it to be stick straight. I need rollers/curling iron and lots of styling goo to get it to be curly. But if I let it be, it has a wave and a life of its own. On rainy and humid days, the ends will curl up.
2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?
I started out golden blonde, became dirty blonde, and was heading to brown when I learned all about hair dye. Since then I’ve been all shades of blonde, some shades of red, and I currently sport blonde highlights and red lowlights.I figure it’s been a good 12 years since I’ve seen my natural color, which is intriguing to me since I don’t really know what it is. My dad started out blond as well, then his hair turned medium brown when he was in his 20s. Most of my life, I’ve had only two real hairstyles: one length with bangs, and one length without bangs. I’m currently without.
3. How do your normally wear your hair?
Most of the time it’s with the top pulled back with a barrette, and the sides and back hanging down.
4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?
Long (past the shoulders) and chestnut brown. Honestly. Think Catherine Zeta-Jones, but a bit lighter in color.
5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?
I had a bad perm/haircut in 8th grade which turned my hair to straw. I also managed to turn my hair an interesting orangey-red shade in college. Luckily, that color was semi-permanent and washed out over time. In the meantime, I wore lots of baseball caps.
