a hair history

We can all attest to some embarrassing beauty + style choices through the years (especially those teenage ones), and in the spirit of full disclosure, I thought I’d share my hair history with you….

I started as a honey blonde and (surprise!) it’s what I basically ended up with…



Trust a teenager to throw a bunch of peroxide in there…



Then I went to the other end of the spectrum…



Please don’t give me a pair of scissors again.



Finally went for the chop…



Tried ombre for the first time…



And discovered my true love: hats.



Then I finally (finally), found a great colourist (who I see maybe once, twice a year… the best) and figured out the best length for my fine hair (collarbone). I am lazy when it comes to my hair so I know it needs to: look decent when I just wash + wear, can be put up and can be worn wavy or straight.

    Loved seeing these pics and I love your hair now, you have such pretty highlights! Looking back I’ve definitely had a few blunders….letting my friend highlight my hair with a kit we bought at the drugstore was not the best idea. haha

      Oh god, was it the one with the cap and you pulled the highlights through? #traumatized

    Hi Jill, would you mind sharing who your colourist is? I have been on the hunt for a great hair colourist for quite some time. Great hair post!

        Does he also cut your hair? If not who does your cut, it’s fantastic!

          No I go to Ali at Barrette Salon for my cuts… she’s been cutting my hair for over 8 years!
