New year, new hair

So yeah I've been away for a while sounds stupid but I had set a schedule in place and having a full time job and trying to stick to another schedule you have set isn't as easy as it sounds. Well maybe it is but not for me haha I like to think I'm pretty organised but that could be debated. But I'm back and it's better late than never!
Since being quite young I've always liked experimenting with my hair and I've had it quite a few different colours and styles. I think the first time I experimented with my hair I was about 10 and my Mam let me get some electric blue hair extensions just a couple of strands dotted about my head I was absolutely chuffed with it haha! Didn't last too long but loved them while they were there! So naturally I have really dark brown hair which is quite thin but I have a LOT of it and with it being quite fine it tats so easily... Bain of my life! First world problems I know but I literally have to brush it for about half an hour to get all the tats out. I know most people would say it's because of how long my hair is and I should get it cut if I hate how much it tats but I've always wanted long hair and I'm just not ready to get rid of it yet! So any way I had been thinking for a good 6 months that I would like an ombré style but with an unusual colour. At first I was thinking of a black and green ombré a bit like what Kylie Jenner had at some point last year but the more I thought about it I was unsure about the green and changed my mind to purple. So after about 6 months thinking about it and researching good hairdressers to go to I finally took the plunge and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I love it ! The first day I got it done, all night I couldn't stop staring at it and telling my boyfriend to look at how beautiful it was... He must have been sick haha! 

So it isn't the easiest hair look to maintain so every time or every other time I wash my hair I add more purple to the ends to keep it vibrant but I love it so much that I don't mind doing that at all. So I thought as I have rambled so much about different hair styles I have had I thought I would include a few pictures of different hair I've had over the years. I'll apologise now if some photos aren't great quality haha! Enjoy...

As a young 16 year old short brown hair but all I can look at is that awful blusher and eyeliner haha!

Bright red hair but same style as before and blusher just as bright haha!

Still bright red but the first signs of wanting a shaved side. The filter on this photo is not helping the blusher situation 

So shaved side and going more of a salmon colour and yes I had crimped my hair haha I thought this looked great at the time!

Finally blonde took a while to get to this and shaved side but you can't see it in this photo.

Long blonde curls however this is thanks to hair extensions as my hair was snapping due to the amount of bleach on it!

Back to brown slightly longer hair and a fringe. Much better at make up too!

Long brown waves and a shorter fringe not much to say quite boring

Really long slightly ombré hair *drunk selfie* cringe

And now...
I love it!
