An Introduction

My name is Emily, as you may have already guessed from my about me. I wasn't sure what my first post should start out like, so I thought I might introduce myself via my ever changing hair! You will find out I am forever dying it which, although not the best for my hair, can be exciting and is fun to play around with!

So we will start from the very beginning...

This is me rocking a very suave cut- it looks like my Mum's hair actually! Big brother stood next to me.


Then onto the afro hairstyle- I don't ever remember my hair being this curly haha! I wish it still was.. Not sure who this is holding me actually.



Awww this is cute! Look at my curly ends! You can see the curls dropping out now. 


Apparently being taught to clap by one of my Aunties. Here my curls have started to drop out and it's a lot darker now than when I'm older. Baby blue eyes! I think I'm toddler age here like 12-24 months.


 Introduction of the 'bob'! My hair is actually really light here! Only about 3/4.


 I think this was a primary school Christmas concert thing. I'm supposed to be a clockwork ballerina. Fringe is in! I remember being about 7 here in Mr Whyman's class!


I don't think I could tell you what this hairstyle is. Was it actually ever a fashion to wear clips like that?! Hair is dark brown again. Must have been around 9/10.


I don't think the greasy bob look is working for me here haha! Must be about 11/12 here!


Awww with Cassie, one of the horses I used to look after. Still only very young here! 13 going on 14. Not sure what is going on with the massive pink clip but never mind!


Getting a bit more posey here! 14 going on 15 and 'coming into my own' a bit more. This is when I started wearing eyeliner!

 Eating sushi! Still only 15 here I think but had a side fringe and it's still growing out from the bob!



Still 15, got a proper combover emo fringe going on here!


Haha geeky little 'Skins' picture here. See that boy laid on me with the curly hair? He's been my boyfriend of 3 and a half years now! *cue the awwww*

 Still as much of a nerd as ever, pulling silly faces with my two friends! First time I dyed my hair here, an iced chocolate colour.


With my best friend in Australia! Going on 16 now, my hair is extremely dark brown and a mahoooosive comb over haha! What was I like!


Hair is looking nice again! I like my eyeliner here :) 



My hair is actually almost a blue-ish tint here. Darkest I've ever had it anyway!


16 here! Dyed hair reddish tint as you can see where I'm looking Happy as Larry haha.


With my gorgeous boyfriend in Brighton! Hair is quite red here- Cherrybomb by Fudge Paintbox.



Hair is short again although not as short as it seems here, it's mainly because it is curly haha. Brown again!



Browny/Reddy in both of these and growing it out. 


Back to short red hair! I'm sooo indecisive!


EXTREMELY dark hair here! Ready for my Duke of Edinburgh Gold trek haha!


This was when I truly started playing around with makeup and really getting into it. Needed my eyebrows doing though!



My gosh this is a TERRIBLE picture! But for hair growth's sake I think it needs to be included haha.


Actually quite like my hair here! Many different colours though from build up of dye.


Big thick fringe! Haha



You can't see it as much in the top picture but I had highlights here. 17 going on 18!


18th Birthday! With my beautiful boyfriend and one of my best friends :)


Rocking the ombre hair trend!


Strange brownish colour? But I think I quite like it!


Taking the plunge back into red. Had this done at a proper salon but it only lasted a few weeks!


DIY red! Using Directions Poppy Red at this point.



Red into orange? Quite faded here but the picture above is when it has first been done. Directions- Tangerine!



Back to good old red. Mixture of Crazy Colours Vermillion and Directions Poppy Red here. Loved this colour!


Longest my hair has ever been and extremely faded!


And this is how it looks, nearly 19, attempting to get it back to brown.

It has actually been really fun doing this, I forget how many colours it has been. I must admit though I do tend to sway between brown and red! If you have managed to get to this point, I would like to thank you for putting up with my many pictures and stupid captions. I just thought that rather than a cheesy intro post, maybe a hair one would be good? So we can journey together through the ever-changing colours and cuts!

Again, thank you for reading this first post I hope you will like my many ramblings to come.
I bid you farewell!

    1. I definitely think you could pull it off! Maybe you could try dying it a reddish tint first of all then gradually build up to bright red?
      It is lovely and everyone always asks about it! It's quite easy to upkeep- as I say in this post, I used Directions by La Riche and although the red faded it was sooo easy to get back again! :D

      Lovely blog by the way!
