I'm a newbie, so I thought I'd post a few photos of what my hair has looked like semi-recently.

Circa summer 2006 -- short and almost wavy:

Circa fall 2006 -- still almost wavy, also, this is the LONGEST I've ever had it in my entire life:

Also circa fall 2006:

Last summer, pretty much what my hair always looks like:

Thanks for the nice words--I'm really liking the support so far. I apologize for having links and not embedded photos (I just put up a question about that in the Newbie forum so hopefully I'll figure it out soon and post some photos of my hair these last few months).

As for my hair color, I've never dyed it, so all of these sort of show my "natural" hair color, although I always get very blonde-ish highlights all through the top layer in the summer that seem to fade each winter. My top layer also seems more brittle and dry, so the texture is a bit different. The color changes seem to be lessening each year I get older, but the sun-bleached dryness isn't changing, go figure. :)

Isn't it amazing how different natural hair colour can look depending on season, light, mood, etc. Yours is lovely, in all its shades. Have fun on the boards :)
