View Full Version : It all started when... My 2 years at LHC - Pics!

It all started on April Fools Day 2010.
I was studying abroad in Argentina and decided to play a trick on my friends back home - look! I cut my hair!

But then, after photoshopping my hair for hours, I decided to google other people with long hair and voila, LHC was discovered!

So here are the traditional "progress pics" though not much has change length-wise in 2 years (especially since I cut it a few times in there), I think my hair is healthier and definitely shinier.
(I'm working on thickening my ends/treating them better, but it'll take a couple years for the thickness of my hair to work its way down to the tips in the best of cases, and even then I doubt it will thicken much. I think I'm pretty close to terminal, which is convenient, since I never planned on having hair longer than my knees anyway, but doesn't do much for thick ends. So I try to just treat the ends nicely and see how far we can go.)
I didn't control for texture - the first one is just after a shower drying, the second is totally dry, the third is oiled.
2010 50"

2011 54"

2012 56"

And here are the (more interesting, IMO) pics of some interesting things I've done with my hair this year:

(the last one was at the Quidditch World Cup - it's an M for Middlebury, and yes, my school won the championship :D )

Ops. maxed out pictures. Maybe I'll put more up later...

I completely forgot what your post was about when I read that your school has a Quidditch team...

:o Ahh... That is some gorgeous hair you have there. I love the second braid from the right! Your color is soooooo pretty

Lovely braids!

I especially love the bit peeping out from under your jacket in the last photo. Is it prehensile?

Congratulations on an exceptionally well-grown head of hair! :D

Your hair does look healthier to me! And I love your braids, especially the first two! Though the braid "tail" is cute! :p

Your photoshop skills are awesome!

I like the ropebraid bun, and all the other styles, too.

Your hair is gorgeous, and that photoshop job definitely would've fooled me! Happy LHC-iversary. :D
