Personally, I LOVE looking at before and after pics of people on this forum, so I thought I would share a small part of my crazy hair journey. :)

Before: Feb 2007. I got drunk and found out Britney Spears had shaved her head... um, LIGHT BULB. My hair was really damaged at the time (I damaged it on purpose because, well, it looked cool. Perm on top of dye on top of perm and more dye... I had the best dreads I've ever seen! And how it didn't just fall out is beyond me). You can still see the damage in the front part I didn't shave, because my hair is actually pretty straight.

Aug. 2008: After the buzz, I eventually grew into and dyed this cool cut... if I were ever to go short again, it'd be this. I love the asymmetry. (yes, I was a member of vampirefreaks, lol)

March 2009: shoulder length, fire truck red hair.

Aug 2009: Which eventually got bleached and destroyed to this.

Sept. 2010: With lots of trims and a couple colorings to tone it done, I finally ended up with semi-undamaged hair (hard to believe, right?). This is the pic that let me realize how much my hair has actually grown!

December 2011: This is my starting pic at LHC. After one month of being here, I've already learned so much... most important thing? Trims, shampoos, and heats aren't necessary! Thank you so much and happy growing!

Wow! I like all of your looks actually, especially the asymmetrical one and the fire-engine red!

And look at your siggy pic! Your the perfect example of thickness travelling down. Very cool!

And welcome to LHC!

I loooved having fiery red hair! I actually dyed it brunette shortly after because of a job I got, so there was a step missing in that process... pretty sure I went through 4 different colors in a month or so. I hope my hair stays thick! I've put it through so much, it's unbelievable it's as healthy as it is now. Before the shave, I couldn't tell you how much I had done with it... dying and bleaching it was a month to month occurrence for me, so I think shaving it and then slowing down was the best thing I could have done, even if I went through some dying and bleaching phases, slowly trimming it out really worked.

Looking at the pics I am positive I can be waist+ in a year, maybe even by graduation if I maintain my new routine. Already gained an inch in a month and I'm about 4 inches away :)

It's really cool to see your journey!
And you know, I didn't really dig the whole Britney Spears hair thing, but you really pull off the look!

Wow your hair is looking great! I am currently growing out a shaven side, similar to the one in your first picture. I regret it so much. I can't wait for my hair to be one even length again! ^.^

@Quixii (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/member.php?u=22909), you know... I just felt so bad for her. My drunken logic was that someone needed to go through the process of growing out their hair with her. Imagine my shock when I woke up the next morning and rubbed my aching head... LOL

But it grows in sooo much nicer! On the plus side, you could always rock a shorter asymmetrical cut for awhile! If I wasn't so hellbent on growing my hair, I'd definitely do that again!

Wow, great pics! I loooove the fiery red and the vampire-freaks look :p! You have a really pretty face and can pull off all those styles, I think short hair looks really flattering to your face. Nonetheless, enjoy the growing and your hair-journey! :)

Not many people could pull off the style in the first photo, but you are one of them! :thumbsup:
Interesting pictures, thanks for sharing, and have fun growing your hair!

I especially love the first look and the last two pictures. It's weird how hair can totally change a whole look, you look like two different persons! You've made awesome progress, wel done!

Can I just say that you're gorgeous? :) And as fun as all the previous looks were, I really am truly a fan of your current look. It's very soft, romantic, and feminine.
