hair this, hair that...

My boyfriend inadvertently named my blog. He made a comment about how much I change my hair and talk about what I want to do with it or what I potentially might want to do someday.

I am a little hair obsessed, I LOVE to reinvent myself, and a big part of that has to do with my hair. I have had short, long and layered styles; had bangs or fringe or all one length; been blonde, brunette, redhead; I've had highlights and lowlights, etc.

I have been dating Keith for a little over 9 months, and when I met him I had chin-length black hair, I had just gotten my long hair cut into a Posh bob to preserve the 10 inches of un-bleach-fried "new growth".

Now I am trying to grow it long again, and constantly trying to improve it
I have stripped the black out, deep conditioned it, gotten highlights; I've dyed it red, which is pretty ridiculous to maintain, so I’ve been looking for the perfect color/shampoo/conditioner/product to compliment my eyes/clean but not strip/nourish and preserve/mend my ends but not weigh it down.. and so on and so on,

In my quest for better products I rattle on about hair colors and products and styles non stop..

Right now, I need a trim, and while shopping online the other day, I found a model with a really cute haircut. I posted a picture of it on my Facebook page (which is something I frequently do) to see if my peers had any insight for me.
     The only response to it was from Keith, "hair this, hair that..." 
Granted this guy has had the same hair style for almost his whole life and it works great for him, it's his trademark look. =)

That’s where I had the idea for this blog. It's place for me to reach people who get that changing your hair color, cut and style, trying new makeup products and techniques and finding new inspiration, is and it's exciting,

My hair is my expression, other people get tattoos. I change my hair color.

So it’s hair this, hair that…

Hi and Why..

First of all, welcome to my blog! This is new to me! The only place I've ever blogged before was on a certain outdated social networking site back when it was still cool.. ;)

I decided to start this blog for a few reasons:

 One: I LOVE reading other fashion blogs and researching techniques, tips, tricks and tutorials related to fashion on the internet.

 Two: I love to talk about myself, and my personal experiences with beauty products, accessories, shopping, etc. I think my wonderful boyfriend is getting tired of listening me excitedly babble on and on about how I want my hair this color or how awesome a deal my favorite jeans were, or about how I could not live without these red pumps or that black purse..

 Three: I read lots of blogs that talk about very, very high end clothes, shoes and accessories that I would love to be able to own, but definitely cannot afford, but I can share what I can afford..

 Four: Why not?

I am not a writer or an expert in any way shape or form. I am just an amateur enthusiast interested in sharing my opinions and thoughts on fashion and personal experiences.
