Tomorrow should be dedicated to studying for my last final so I'm cheating and doing this one day early.

This is me, one year ago.

Me with water curls a couple of years ago.

Me with black and purple hair. I do sometimes miss this look. That was a couple of years ago.

My blond buzz cut, I somehow did not get any pictures when it was still purple. This was probably January of 2010. My DS would have been about five months old at that point.

Our wedding day just over four years ago. Yes my DH really does have a foot and a half on me. My hair would have been about BSL at that point.

My piranda braided bun with bent knitting needles holding it in place.

I'll try to get a length shot if my hair will behave and I can outsmart my camera. Maybe tomorrow at this point. Anyways thanks for scrolling through my massive pictures!

Yall will have to excuse the lack of makeup in this one but this is me past APL in front by a bit.

Looks so thick! Very nice! Although I have to admit, that short curly one is super cute. Good luck on your final!

May 15th, 2013, 08:53 PM
Thanks and thanks! I can always do water curls, I think my hair may have actually been about this length just layered from pixie grow out.

May 15th, 2013, 09:19 PM
Congratulations on your anniversary! I love looking at photos of people's hair and how much it changes. I really like your texture and will be interested to see how your hair is at even greater lengths. :)

Also, I, too, have my final final (:p) tomorrow! Good luck!!! :flowers:

May 15th, 2013, 10:19 PM
Oh good luck to you! Mine will be Friday, I just didn't want to be worried about this when I need to be studying. I always think of my hair as being so fine and whispy so to have people comment on texture. So thanks! I don't think it would look this good without the LHC people helping me figure it all out!

That's quite a thick hemline. Looking really good my dear! Thanks for loading up all those pics, it's nice you see your face and the other details that add to your lovely personality.

May 16th, 2013, 12:31 AM
It looks lovely! What are water curls though? I've never heard of them.

May 16th, 2013, 03:39 AM
Congratulations on you hairiversary! You've made a lot of progress in one year! :cheese:

May 16th, 2013, 05:20 AM
Wow! Great progress! You've really stuck to your goal, because growing from that buzz cut can't have been easy. Your hair type is very pretty. It looks pretty now, and will stop traffic when it's longer! Very well done!

May 16th, 2013, 06:31 AM
Thank you all so much! Water curls, pin curls, water perms are all the same thing in my head. I take sections of hair while it is damp then curl it around a finger to my scalp then pin on either side of the roll. Then I let it dry. Some people sleep on it, I tend to do mine in the morning and if I set it right I feel like a brunette Marilyn Monroe.

I do miss my buzz some days, it was so easy but I don't think it really suited me.

Wildcat Diva I have actually become quite camera shy, thanks for the complement it really does mean a lot to me!

Sisi33, it is so easy for me to forget how far I have come from three years ago! I think having all these shots in one place will really help me remember!

Again thanks to all of you!

May 16th, 2013, 07:27 AM
Your hair is so pretty! And I love the curls. Congrats on your anniversary! :)

May 16th, 2013, 07:50 AM
Thanks! I may set curls for this weekend tomorrow, if I have time before my final. Packing, studying and popping on and off of here for the day. I may also do some baking... We'll see, the studying seems to be going well and the final is supposed to actually be easier then the midterm was so here's hoping.

In other news I passed Biology. What a huge relief to have passed the first class I finished this semester.

Looks great.

May 16th, 2013, 03:10 PM
Thanks! Now it just needs to keep on growing!

May 16th, 2013, 09:46 PM
Yay! Congrats on bio!

I finished my last exam today, so fewer school-worries until August!

May 17th, 2013, 03:05 AM
It looks awesome, congrats :)

May 17th, 2013, 06:25 AM
My last exam is today, then I will be going to Field Study in June.

Thanks PixieKitten!

Happy Anniversary SerinaDaith! You are a breath away from APL!! Loved seeing all the pictures-- the one of you and your hubby is so sweet. Your hair has great texture and is worth the extra pains in growing with shrinkage :)

May 18th, 2013, 01:29 PM
brilliant progress! well done! :D loving all the pics :)

May 18th, 2013, 02:02 PM
Thanks so much!

May 19th, 2013, 11:22 PM
I love the colour in the recent pics - Congrats on your hairversary!

May 20th, 2013, 07:55 AM
Natural hair color is a big change for me so thanks! I am learning to like it! I even got complements on my rope horseshoe braid this weekend, no pictures that I know of but people actually liked it which was really nice!

May 20th, 2013, 07:57 AM
Ooh, what's a rope horseshoe? Do you make it into a U?

And congratulations on that last exam! Hope your field study goes well!!!

May 20th, 2013, 08:05 AM
I part my hair usually off center then lace braid or lace rope along the hairline on either side the. I tuck right tai under left braid and pin, then left braid tucks under right braid which is why it has to be a lace braid. I pin the tales and whatever else looks loose. I still can't pull off a presentable crown braid so I do this instead. I may keep it up even when I do sort out a crown though just because.

May 20th, 2013, 09:14 AM
Thanks for the instructions - so you do twin lace ropes away from your face in both directions and then tuck? I'll have to try this out. :)

May 20th, 2013, 04:06 PM
Yes I do. It makes the front of the braids a little smaller in front which I like.

May 20th, 2013, 05:18 PM
Look at you, you're almost APL now! That is some progress you've made. I like your natural texture! :D :thumbsup:

May 20th, 2013, 06:19 PM
Aw thanks! APL with a quickness!
