    Default Hair Woes

    Decisions, decisions... my hair is way overdue for coloring touch-up, it is as short as my current profile photo. I am completely gray/white, no here and there stray grays, everywhere white. I started going gray at 18 and at age 30 I was completely white, I am 35 yrs old now and I color/re-touch my hair every 4 weeks with a box color.
    I am contemplating getting my hair like extremely boy short then just letting it grow out or then going to a salon and getting the color out (been dying it black for 3 years) I want to go brown or possibly dark red. I am just sick of my hairstyle and color and want a change. I have the box color ready to go, but almost just want to chop it all off and start fresh. What shall I do? I have really thick hair as well and naturally wavy, it is not a good wave either, it looks goofy and I have to almost always straigthen it. I have almost 1.5 inches of white hairs against black hair right now. I haven't found a good stylist really and hop around to other places still. Sucky all around.

    I love Becki from Whippy Cake's hair! It's like yours, but I think it might have more layers and is styled differently. I just love, love, love her haircut (and her products!). I had thought about getting it cut like hers a couple months back. I just wasn't sure if I wanted to go that short...

    Dude, that is AWEsome! I started greying at 14/15/16 and I've always wanted to just go completely grey. Mine don't even go grey anymore, they go white and I have them ALL OVER my head. I'm 26! Sometimes I dye it, sometimes I don't. It hasn't been dyed in some months and the whites pop out within a month of dying. I just color for special occasions, then I let my hair just be itself the rest of the time. I WISH I could cut my hair as short as yours. Short hair makes me face look fat(ter). Plus my hair grows insanely fast. It's so long, so thick and HEAVY and hot. I think you would look great with a deep red! OR with black and burgundy lowlights. Ooh, I love your hair!

    Chop it off! I bet you'd look terrific with an uber short pixie cut! Try it with your natural white/gray color or throw in some pink or purple tips!

    It's only hair, it will grow back!

    I agree with a cut similar to Jamie Lee Curtis even if you left it your natural hair color and let the grays come through, you'd be cute! Check her hairstyle out. I think she looks so chic with her gray hair.

    if you are brave, i too love the jamie lee curtis do too...so hot!!! although i totally wish i could go red but if you naturally have dark hair then "silver" might look more natural for you. although, i love the style in your profile picture, i think it is totally cute

    your avvie pic has always reminded me of one of my good friends. She has a blog about being pregnant (well, she just had the baby, so I guess technically now it's a blog about new parenthood, but I digress). Every week of her pregnancy, she took a series of belly pics so there are lots of pics of her hair to check out lol. I think you could totally do the short hair like hers (she used to be totally bleach blonde, and brunette, and now she's the dark black like you).
    Anyway, the reason I bring this all up lol is that I think you could definitely rock the pixie cut!
    Here and here and here are some pics of my friend.
