Hi.
I would love to see before and after pictures of anyone's growth.
It would be very inspirational for myself and others.
I couldn't find a thread that had what I was looking for so I thought I would ask ;)
Thanks...

Thanks for posting...I guess I should have called it 'before and current' haha

Oh, I love these threads......

The last time my hair was cut like this was Sept. 07. Short, Chin length, layered all over and highlighted to cover grays.

After lots of trimming to get rid of layers. Finally at APL!

Oh Manderly, your hair is gorgeous! Those spirals at the end - too lovely. I'd give anything for waves like yours... but will never get them. :(

My hair two years ago:

http://img235.imageshack.us/img235/7646/offen03ko4.th.jpg (http://img235.imageshack.us/my.php?image=offen03ko4.jpg)

already getting longer after a chop, but chemically dyed and dried from too much styling stuff...

And two months ago.

I'll have to take another newer picture! Today is my two-year anniversary on the German boards. Both boards together have helped me to turn around my hair and make it much happier.

Not to mention longer.

First. January 7th. After losing a scholarship and the possibility of getting a really good job I went to the hairdresser, sad and depressed, and asked for this:

Second. Last month. I have gained much more growth, but I cut like 2 inches two months ago.

This is a rough timeline of how long my hair has grown after being shaved two summers ago.
Enjoy c ;

3 days after being bic-ed (sometime around July 07')

Several months later, no dye (around Feb 08')
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q114/absinthegelatin/beautysandwich.jpg

Hmm... maybe early fall of 08'? There were quite a few trims going on...
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q114/absinthegelatin/lesdeux-1.jpg

Early spring/late winter 09'
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q114/absinthegelatin/charliesangels.jpg

Partially lifted the red out, middle spring 09'
http://i134.photobucket.com/albums/q114/absinthegelatin/sidehair.jpg

Red has been completely lifted out, middle summer 09' (some clip in extensions in front)

Queensland's one of the Australian states, I don't know which off the top of my head, but I think it's in the southeast.

According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queensland), it's actually in the northeast.

Yep.

WelshLocks, Queensland car license plates have "the sunshine state" on them. Each state and territory in Australia has a common saying to it. The states/territories are often referred to it by the sayings rather than it's proper name.
