I decided to do a hair time. Maybe I'll make it into a video later one as well. But after I color my hair more... because it will happen. I still plan to do a mint green color, half black and blue, and go back to a pastel pink. Oh and this really color black, blue, purple and turquoise pattern I saw, maybe a pastel mixture as well.
Anyways... So here's my hair timeline so far. Including different cuts I guess. I couldn't find any of my original hair photos. But basically before the first few photos my hair was down to almost my waist (when straight), very plain, always worn natural, kinda flat but while being big-curly and it's the color of the brown in the first few photos (before I dyed it red- you'll see).
So like I said. My hair before this was super long and all one solid brown color. Unfortunately I was stupid and cut it all off ;-; -I regret it, I want my super long hair back now that I know how to style it. Anyways, it was about this length for a while and in high-school I went and had the underneath part bleached.
After that I dyed the underneath black/a super dark brown and it eventually faded to my natural color.
I went and put a red streak in my hair sometime in high-school as well. I only tried to mix it in my bangs for a day or two.
The streak eventually faded to a brassy dark blonde. And I started wearing a middle part... Yuck (at least here it was xD).
I'm so awkward looking!
It faded a bit more to a bright blonde. I left the middle part for a fringe. I believe it started straight-cut and then just grew on into a side fringe -kinda. After that I got a s-waver and was obsessed with just having mermaid hair.
Here's an absolutely awful picture during when I first bleached my hair. Red face and runny makeup, dark circles and all. I remember seeing the blonde and thinking, "Gawd it looks awful on me, I'll never do that." Truth is the blonde was fine, I just looked terribly awful back then (please discover makeup and hair styling techniques already ;-; ).
I did red and black hair. Mostly red with black under my bangs and a few thin black streaks. This was early college I believe. I liked how it turned out, a friend did it for me, but I didn't like how I looked with it.
Like previously, I just didn't like how I looked! And I was still figuring out how to style my hair (and needed to fix my bangs already!).
This was probably a month later. I threw brown over the top. So it was a really red-ish brown. The black had faded a bit by now too.
The red had faded out more and now it was a brown color with a red-ish tint but that faded quickly too. Oh and straight cut bangs.
I used a box color meant for dark hair to dye it to a natural red color. Since my hair had previous color it didn't lift or take the color like it would have on virgin hair and turned a more reddish-brown instead. Looked more giner-y in the sunlight. The old black didn't take the color though.
That faded and the black only showed up more. It faded to a super light color because now ALL the dyes in my hair wear rinsing out and beginning to fade back, closer to the blonde that was underneath. So it was a light-ginger brown color.
I got my first wig a while later and wore that for a bit since I didn't know how to use extensions nor could afford it - I had yet to learn of eBay and minihouse8888.
Continued to put a ginger-y color on my hair and the black faded more. Began cutting my own bangs and actually liked them. Actually I began cutting my own bangs a bit before this, back when I went to straight-cut bangs after dying brown over that red hair.
I took a hair dye (luministia or something from loreal or some brand like that -box dye) meant to dye dark hair to a bright dark/deep red and so this was the result. Much more red than other colors.
That faded to a red/ginger-brown.
To even out all the different tones and colors in my hair I dyed it black.
This is probably the middle of college (my community college experience at least). I dyed the under part of my bangs pink (using manic panic cotton candy pink I believe) shortly after dying it black.
That faded to blonde.
And then with the help of my lovely friend (the same one who's been helping me dye it before - at least all the bright colors) I bleached my whole head (a couple times) and went pink! It faded quickly though.
And here's the brassy, kind of pink-tinted blonde color that faded to. This was still it the middle of college - over a summer break.
And the beginning of that next fall semester I dyed my hair blue. This was probably my last year at that college. The beginning of the last year.
I forget my reason for dying it black, but in order to do something I dyed it black and cut my bangs straight-across. This was mid-late fall, before/around Halloween.
This is when I discovered extensions as well. So yay for long hair. I had black for a while. All throughout winter!
Cut a grow-out undercut into my hair.
Got rid of that undercut.
Towards the spring time, I believe, I bleached all my hair (a few times) then dyed it a "milk tea brown" - basically a dirty blonde. That would end up lightening up a bit.
Dip-dye my hair pink.
Mixed in black extensions.
I can't remember which of these two I did first but either way the pink faded out and I returned to blonde.
Don't remember if these where after that (the black & pink coloring above) but my hair did return to just plain blonde. And the pink faded out. Blonde lasted all summer, into maybe September?
A month or two into cosmetology school I dyed my hair a pastel purple.
That faded back to blonde.
I went and touched up the blonde and bought new, longer extensions.
Used old extensions to make fake dreads and wore that for a bit.
Took those out.
Dyed my hair with la riche carnation pink mixed with conditioner.
As a demo for the school, dyed my hair half pink, half purple/magenta (pastels) in a checkered print almost. No extensions.
Dyed my hair a 3RV (dark red-violet). Was more purple-y at first.
That faded and became more red-violet (this was towards the end of my cosmetology schooling now).
That faded to a brown color.
Bleached half my head so that I had half brown, half blonde coloring. No extensions. This was right at the very end.
Bleached out the brown and dyed my hair a ginger-red color with a lighter orangey-blonde ombre. New extensions. This is currently.
So thanks for watching my hair journey so far. Will it ever end? Nope! :P Because I like coloring my hair.
~Positive outcomes only! :)

Was fun looking at your hair coloring journey. Makes me wish I took pics of my hair changes through the years. You did a great job making changes with your hair so long!
