The Eternal Hair Dilemma!

Hi all! TGIF! And it's a long weekend here in NZ so that makes it DOUBLY exciting. The bf and I are heading up the coast to New Plymouth. It's a five hour drive so we're going to set off tomorrow morning and take it easy, stopping for lunch on the way. Hope the weather is kind to us!

Well I'm currently having one of my ETERNAL hair considerations...I've booked an appointment to get tips of my hair lightened slightly for a 'sunkissed' look now that spring is on its way!

I've had long hair my WHOLE LIFE and as much as I love it, I do get fed up with it and occasionally try to 'change it up a bit' whilst keeping the length. I've tried countless 'side fringes' and a couple of colours... I thought I'd show you the very few variations my hair has taken over the last few years!
The shortest it's ever been ;)
Me (with baby sister!) growing my locks slowly!
One night when I was living in Las Palmas back in 2004 I had insomnia - so cut myself a fringe!
Back from Las Palmas, in my last year of uni I began having highlights - as you probably know, hair gets lighter and lighter - soon after this stage I thought enough was enough! TOO blonde for my skin tone!

I went on to have blonder tips as the highlights grew out...
After a few months in the NZ and Aussie summer, 2 years ago my hair was naturally very sunkissed - I like it!

But just a month later decided to go RED!

And then had to dye my hair dark brown to cover it when it started fading and I grew bored of it...!

And now as you know my hair is back to its natural shade:

So today I am looking forward to trying something new!
Does anyone else have this quandary with their hair?!


  1. Haha I love all the stages that you went through! So many different styles and they all looked good... Cant wait to see what you are going to do to it now!

    Love! ~Angel

  2. Awesome pics....what a good idea I may have to steal it off you :p Your lucky I reckon you suit all the colours you've tried, I do think you look best a la natural though :) and YAY for long weekend! Hope you have a fab road trip xx

  3. I loved your hairy tales! I love your light tips. Im a fan of the ombre look or whatever they call it. If I had it my way I'd have pink hair but my hair is so dark. I had short hair for years, the rihanna A-line bob and then a bowl cut that took me 2 years to grow out to where it is now. Would like to mess with color a little more though. hmmmm.

  4. You're so lucky that all colours suit your skin tone so the world is your oyester when it comes to hair - what about a long Bob?
    BTW I tweeted you, hope it worked!! Have a fun long weekend hun xoxo

  5. yep! but i think i'm a bit like you, i experiment with the colour more than i do with the length. i'm always too terrified of having it cut really short, long hair is like my comfort blanket. let us know what you go for :-) x

  6. Aww, I love your hair in all these photos! :)
    At the moment I want to dip dye my hair in peroxide - not good for it but I don't care, I am bored with my hair too! :(


  7. TGIF!!
    love the baby photos! so sweet :D

  8. It's so odd you talking about spring in New Zealand and getting sun kissed locks, when in the UK we're in Autumn :P! I love your hair your natural colour, and i'm excited to see it with the tips slightly lightened.


  9. Yep I do! I´ve done sooo many things to my hair in the past! I´ve had it long and ginger, dark red and short-ish, jet black, honey blonde and now it´s currently with blonde highlights (hopefully for long!) I´m following you through here and bloglovin dear :)

    Have a nice weekend!

  10. I love your hair evolutions. Great color choices. I think I like the red one the best!

  11. I have had the same issue. Luckily I always seem to change it up every few months. The great think about hair it is never permanent! Hair is the BEST accessory.
    BTW, I have missed you! :)

  12. Well I am a readhead but now i am blond. You did a lot of changes to your hair, I think the best one is your natural color and you can try blond tips!!
