It might seem like nothing ever changes until you go back and look through 25 years of photos and see the undeniable evidence. HOWEVER, I didn’t know that yesterday, and was feeling like nothing ever changes and was thus inclined to make a big change to my hair. How big? Well, to put it into perspective, here is the photo evidence of my hair-story. You can decide at the end whether my most recent change is big or small. (Apologies in advance for the poor photo quality… remember, I’m OLD so most of these are before digital.)
Sometime in 1995, I found a hip Montreal stylist, made it through baby bangs and wound up in a hair styling magazine showcasing the work of Patrice. I didn’t understand a word he said, but I got to wear red eye shadow and that was cool.
About two weeks after the top right photo was snapped, my husband lost his job and I started blogging and taking tons of photos of just me! If you scroll through the archives, you’ll see the same basic hairdo from 2012 to this past Saturday morning… medium long, assisted blonde worn straight or curled or in a couple basic styles. I like my hair and I’m grateful for it, especially after reviewing all I’ve put it through over the years! Still… I was craving a change and so…
I got myself a platinum blonde angled bob!
It’s still growing on me but I think this is the perfect style to go with my new blog name! I gave the new ‘do a spin with a couple Pinspired March 2.0 outfits but I’ve been waiting to post here so I didn’t ruin my hair surprise!
Now that I’ve shared my whole hair-story, what do you think of my new do?!
Love the look back!!! So many hair styles…and some that remind me of Princess Diana.
you always look(ed) great! i really thought the big glasses look was super-cute too!
i love the new do, it does go with the new blog name!
cheers spirited thrifter

SuzanneDennis aw thanks! Those 80s glasses! I missed the days of the upside-down glasses! :O

Aw thanks! Except I was a TERRIBLE model, lol! Funny where life leads you!
Ha you’re most welcome. I sure had some ups and downs! Hopefully this latest is an “up”!! Thanks for reading!
Love the throwback! I graduated in 92, so the high bangs are very familiar to me. U0001f609
Love the new look!
A fun read this morning. After a rough short hair patch I layed low and grew out, mine…forever. boring I know. You on the other hand rocked every look (almost :)) Love the new “do”!!
High 5 for the claw bang!
Funny! And thank you!
I love it!!
I think your hair looks great – the perfect amount of change! 🙂 I loved seeing all these pictures from the past – I think this is one of my favorite posts! We should have a night of looking through old photo albums some time. I love to see friend’s pictures and hear stories from before I knew them!
I was amazed at all you have done and been in life! Looking beautiful through it all!
Wow. You look amazing
