Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Mrs. S's Hair Versatility/Mistakes Edition

May 2006-December 2006: Mostly reds and browns with some blond streaks and short cut. 
Oh yeaaaah.


2007: Finally started getting more and more blond. I loved it but its not nice on the wallet. 

Late 2007: A week before the wedding I went a tad darker but left lots of blond.

About two weeks after getting married, I went dark red with blond streaks.

Three months after that I was back to dark with a little blond and had chopped my own bangs.
I was Bangin' for sure.

2007-Summer 2008: I had become enamored with the dramatic a-line cut and left it dark with lots of the blond streaks.

September & October 2008: I had started to grow it out and had dyed it burgundy. Oh yes, burgundy. 

November 2008- May 2009: I went black. Full on, Snow White status black. I continued to grow it out and brought back my bangin' bangs.

May- August 2009: I started to get the itch. I needed something new and drastic and boy did I get it. I decided to go from black to blond. Bad idea. I hit every color of the blond spectrum from red, orange, platinum, then a good shade of blond. Hundreds of dollars and 9 inches of hair later, these are the end result.
 I'm the farthest one to the left. 

September 2009-Present: I began and completed the process of going back to black and am once again growing out my locks.

I'm jealous of your versatility! You look great with any color!

Kara said...

Ditto on the jealousy part! I've had pretty much the same hair for years. Same color, I just cut it to my shoulders, then let it grow again. My drastic was getting some side swept bangs, but I can't even keep up with those! I want to cut it again, but hubby likes it long. I'll still end up cutting it.

Seriously third the jealousy thing. I definitely could not pull all of those off like you can!! :D They all looked seriously awesome

Miss E said...

I'm not sure I could be as brave as you!!! You really do look great with all your hair colors

Steph said...

You definitely look great with any color. I think my personal favorite is the very first picture. I'm thinking about going black this winter.

JG said...

There is nothing you can't pull off, lucky girl! ;) Seriously, I love them all. I'm in the process of growing out my hair myself, and while it's going pretty quickly, I'm done waiting! I want my long hair back!

C said...

ooooh, j'adore the burgundy and the black! I wish I could pull that off, but I'm seriously not cool enough for cool hair. I can go "librarian chic" but that's about how crazy it gets.

Miss L said...

You DEFINITELY can rock any hair color or style! They all look great!

Kaylee said...

I have died my hair all of those colors :) haha.. Except the actual black, I have gotten close though. I get so bored that I just need change. But I really want to see my natural now so I haven't died it in almost 4 months and I am just letting it grow... You know how hard this is!! ha

I love the red hair and the red dress (above your family shot).
You really can pull them all off!

I love your hair. I actually think black is my favorite color on you. I need some hair advice when you come out to visit. My hair is so blah-zae right now. Well, except for my excellent gray streak, thank you, Army! Due to the deployment it's really starting to fill in.

Photina said...

You look great in every cut and color you posted. That is awesome!

Adam+Tatum said...

You go girl.....i feel like no matter what i do to my hair it always looks the same.....you look beautiful any way you wear your hair!!

Sherri Romney said...

Rachelle you are gorgeous and can pull off ANYTHING. Wish I was that way. I liked the dark with blonde streaks a lot...kinda want to try it out on me. I'm too chicken though! Love ya

Jenn said...

Love that you have fun with you hair! I'm jealous cause I can't pull off short hair at all. I tried it now I'm growing it out. The color bug has hit me though.

Goodnight moon said...

Okay...that last picture is freaky! I think that I like your hair black the best...not sure if your even asking that or not?!?! Short and black looks good with your eyes!

Sarah Ann said...

First off- Last pic scared me. Lol. Secondly- I'm jealous that you seem to have no fear when it comes to changing your hair. I'm a big chicken who's biggest risk ever taken with my hair was cutting it all off...in 3rd grade. Since then it's been long and blonde and...blah.

AbbeyG said...

Wow. that is a lot of hair chaning!! haha and may I just say that you and Mr. Superman are freaking adorable. :)

Christy said...

What's your natural color (as far as you know)? I loved the color in the first picture, soft and fit your skin color beautifully!!!

Maranda said...

I love, love, LOVE it black! I change my hair a lot and have been every color...including purple and fuchsia...but always go back to red. I love red on me. But I love black on you! Thanks for sharing! I love this!

Mike and Esther said...

OOOO la la!!!! I love the dramatic A line, dark with blond in it!
