As my birthday approached, I worried that I had been stuck with the same haircut for a while. I decided I would make a drastic change. The photo was taken with photobooth on my Mac, so the quality isn't the best, but it was easy.
Now, I was really excited about this haircut until I got home and realized that I have had this haircut many times in my life. Then I started to worry that it would look like I did in 3rd grade with this haircut.
At least I don't have the bangs to feather, right? Plus, my mom no longer is making me these sweet dresses.
I tried this same look again in 4th grade while sporting some turquoise colored stonewashed jeans with this great sweater:
Oh, PLEASE make this stop. I can't believe that I did this to myself. I actually looked at my picture and liked it enough to keep styling my hair this way??? Well, 5th grade takes the cake. Perm brushed out to complete the triangle head along with the feathered bangs. MOM, why didn't you stop me?!?!?!
If you like the vest I'm wearing in this picture, you should have seen the matching pants my mom made.
Halleluia! I put an end to this hairstyle in 6th grade, started growing out my hair, along with the bangs. You can still see hints of that perm from 5th grade. Thank you mom and dad for the braces I so badly needed!!! Now, the black rubber bands on the braces, that is another story. What was I thinking choosing those? I remember the orthodontist trying to talk me into orange and black alternating for Halloween. We compromised and went with just plain black.
I think this is the one time this haircut worked for me, I think I was about 3:
