Hair

If I added up all the time I’ve spent washing, drying, curling, styling, spraying, cutting, coloring, discussing, obsessing, loving, hating, and debating my hair, surely it would add up to  . . . more time than I care to admit!  I’ve had all lengths (mostly long) and all colors (mostly blonde) over the years.   Each style tells a story.

December 2007 (long, blonde).  Just married and oh, so in love!
526

May 2008 (short, blonde).  Ready for a “change” and chopped it to my shoulders.
622

June 2009 (medium, brunette).  Getting tired of appointments with the colorist and decided it would be better to just do a solid brunette to avoid all that maintenance.

May 2010 (pony tail always, blondish).  Bummed to discover that the brunette also required maintenance, and faded so quickly, so  . . . going back to blonde- but in the Houston heat, pony tails work best.

In my Academy Awards of hair, those shown below would be my winners.  I often wonder if it’s the hair or the gorgeous face that makes the women look so beautiful.  I’m sure it’s a combination of both. 

Best Short- Halle Berry.  This is how I like her best.  She rocks it like nobody’s business. 

Best Long- Olivia Palermo.  Looks shiny and healthy and perfectly sunkissed (before she went brunette)

Best Bald- Natalie Portman.  Are you serious?  She looks fabulous!

Best Super Blonde- Jessica Simpson.  A blonde bombshell.

Best Red- Julianne Moore.  Super sexy.

Best Brunette- Jessica Alba.  She’s done a lot of colors, but rich brown is my favorite on her.

Best Bang- Reece Witherspoon.  A classic beauty.


Best Waves- Gisele Bundchen

Best Curls- Kim Kardashian

Best All Around- Jennifer Aniston.  Just looks effortless and gorgeous always.  Beautiful color always.  I don’t know how she gets it so super-straight.  Remember the really early days of Friends- naturally curly?? Brazilian blowout?

  2. I love your seeing your hair through the years. So beautiful. I think Olivia Palermo and Jennifer Aniston can't be beat. I love how effortless and natural Jennifer's hair always looks. I wonder how much money we would save if we shaved it off! :)

  3. Oh I agree with all of these. Loved Olivia's hair pre-brunette. I for one, can never decide if I want to be blonder or darker. And I am so ready for another Brazilian blowout. Your hair looks gorgeous.

  5. Gosh, I love you hair! It's absolutely beautiful. And like many, I also love Jennifer Aniston's hair, it's perfect in my eyes. I also find myself loving Kate Middleton's hair lately as well.

  6. Such a fun post! I think you look great with all lengths and colors...lucky lady! And I agree...Jen has the best hair! I would die for hair like that!

  7. Your hair is gorgeous! I have gone through the same transformations: blonde to brunette, then back to blonde:) You look fab!

  8. Funny you did a hair post - I'm actually going back to brunette today! I have been blonde for a few months after just having my natural hair colour {that's right, no dye at all} for 5 years. I felt like I needed a change, but I hate maintaining it, so BTB {back to brunette} I go! It will be nice to only have to go in every few months for a cut again.

  9. Other then the two times in my life that I chopped it, my hair has been very long (between ribs and waist, varying). I have tried all different types of colors, but went back to my natural almost-black 5 years ago and havent touched it since. Long layers, healthy and dark.

    I added some highlights in April and while its a nice change for summer (and hubby likes it) I cant wait to go back to dark in the fall!

  10. I'm so glad that you wrote this post. I have been dying for a change with my hairstyle because it's been a year since I did anything to it (eek!) Though I want a change, I don't know what I want...thank you for jump starting my hair brainstorm :-)

  11. Oh good... I'm not the only one obsessing over hair! You are one of those lucky people who look fabulous no matter what style you choose! I'm still getting used to my short bangs... can't wait until they grow out to the length of Reece's.

  12. Hi Megan! Love these hair ideas! Every girl needs a "fresh" new style for Summer. ;) Your hair looks fab!

  13. Everyone of your styles were just beautiful!!! and i have to say Jennifer Aniston is still my all time fave hair! I had the brazillion blow out back in March and I have to say it was the best thing I ever did for this Houston humidity! But i did have sticker shock when my bill was well over $400!! yikes!

  14. Your hair is darling! I have always loved Reese and her bangs, as well as Jen Aniston's natural look.

  15. How fun seeing all your hair changes!!!! I'm currently deciding what to do with mine too. I need a change, but am unsure what to do or how drastic to go! these are some good ideas though! ;)

  16. What a fun post- you look beautiful! I love Julianne Moore's hair, and I've always loved how great Reese Witherspoon's bangs look. I have tried in the past, and am never able to get them to look like that. I always just grow them out! :) I am also growing my hair now- ponytails are best in the summer. :)

  17. Your hair looks really cute! I have very short hair because mine is super-fine & not super-thick. I would have to vote for Ms. Aniston with the length in this photo or just about any way she wore it in Friends. She's got it all. Well, with the exception of Brad...lol!!!

  18. Jen always makes it look effortless! Love Reese too, just too adorable no matter the style. So fun seeing your styles over the years.

  19. Love your fabulous hairstyles over the years. You look gorgeous in all kind of hairstyle and colors. I adore Olivia's hairstyle, I have always wanted hair like that but I am not sure about the maintenance!

  21. I agree with you on how the gorgeous girl is probably what makes a hair style really rock ... you are a gorgeous girl and pulled off all of your various hair styles fabulously! My all around fav is Jennifer Anniston too! My daughter is a hair stylist and I have asked her to "give" me Jennifer's color time and time again, but she said it just won't work on my hair - BUMMER!!!!

  22. I concur, but also have to add that Jayma Mays (Emma from Glee) has great hair too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have always loved Jennifer Aniston's hair. I wanted "The Rachel" at one point, but I knew my hair was too thick to pull it off. Great line-up!

    ReplyDelete
  24. You have the best hair, seriously I wish mine had that much body. I am such a blonde at heart. I tried the burnette route too and I hated it. Now my motto is the blonder the better. Love J Simpson's color and Kelly Ripa's too!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Your hair is very pretty. I love the way the color looks in your pony picture. I know what you mean about maintenance though. My hair faves are Jennifer Aniston, Kim K & Jessica S.

  26. You have gorgeous hair and it works so many ways...I hear you on the time, money and effort it takes to keep it up, what us women do!

  28. Your hair is gorgeous! I just dyed my hair brunette last week and it made me miss my blonde =( But definitely agree that Miss Jen has the best hair always!

  31. I gotta say - not too many women can pull off shorter hair well, but I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your shoulder length hair. It looks very fresh and young on your :) Either way, you look fabulous!

  32. I have always love Jennifer Aniston's hair, so effortless and classic. I cut my hair off about a year and a half ago and am anxiously awaiting the day it is back to its long length! I gave your post "Running" a shout out in my post about starting the Couch to 5K. Thank you for the much needed inspiration/motivation!

  35. Zooey Deschanel wins the big shebang for me. Her hair is always gorgeous.

  36. You and your hair are freaking gorgeous. Why do I feel like I've seen part of this post before? Deja vu maybe? I love the VS sexy wave look, so I gotta go with Giselle.

  37. LOVE your 2nd picture. That length gives lots of body to your hair, without all the work.

  38. Love all your hair styles (you're really pretty)!

    And I 100% agree with Jennifer Aniston!

  42. I LOVE Olivia's hair. Sigh, I wish I could pull that off!!

  43. You have some amazing hair girl! I wish I had the patience to grow mine long, it gets past my shoulders and starts driving me crazy!

    I've always loved Jennifer Aniston's hair - she makes it look so easy!

  44. What a fun post! You look beautiful. I have always been so envious of Jennifer Aniston's perfect hair.

  45. I don't think I have one favourite hair icon. I must say that Katie Holmes pulls of the best bob in my opinion though. Your hair is lovely. I'm in the not-fun-growing-it-out process right now. Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love your hair the way it is right now. My favorite from your round up has to be Olivia and Reese. I love her.
