Throwback Thursday: Kandee's Short Hair

I found this old picture of me.
Back in the day, when I had "the fastest hair to get ready of my life" hair cut.
It was short.
I did it blonde when it was short, except I let this girl I met, who was an out-of-work hair stylist, lighten it for me (which I don't know why I let her do it, I'd been lightening it perfectly platinum, on my own, prior to her attempt)...and I remember it came out more banana yellow, than platinum.
I went back to me lightening it myself after that.

And I purposely, did not lighten my eyebrows to match the blonde, so that people would know..."yeah, I nearly burned my scalp off, to get my hair this blonde- no way is this natural!"....ha ha ha ha ha

This picture is like 87 years ago, or at least it feels like it sometimes.

I miss my hair being short...and each day that I reach for my blow dryer, then my flat iron, then maybe a curling iron, or maybe more flat ironing...
I think, "man, kandee, remember how much time you saved, when you'd just rub your hair with a towel, put a little dry wax or texturizing cream in your hair, twist it or smooth some pieces and you were done!"....

What was your favorite hair cut that you sometimes miss?

big biceps from holding a blow dryer so long, your kandee

Before I met my husband I pretty much had a mohawk. I didn't shave the sides down, just had it realy short and the middle strip long. It was awesome and so easy to fix. But my husband hated it, said it made me look like a boy. So I let it grow for the last five years. I just recently cut off 5 inches and its still past my shoulders. And we cut a lot off the top. Think grown out mullet. Got the idea from one of your old videos. Love love love it... so fun to play with. I've got the lenght my hubby wants with the short easy fix I love. Thanks for the inspiration!

I miss my hair being red with blonde highlights, lol. It was very pretty but to hard to keep up so I went back to brown with blonde, I sometimes miss it being longer too. Except in summer, lol

How long did it take you to grow it out, the worst part about a short cut is growing it out!!! Any tips you have would be awesome kandee xx

Sincerly yours, Sophie

I was always scared to cut my hair that short, so I cheated a bought a wig. It was styled into a pixie cut, she was honey blonde and her name was Tori. Sometimes I see a wig that reminds me of her and I remember all the good times we had, lol

You look like a model!! But I love your hair now. How did it grow so long after that cut? That must have been a long time ago. But you look the same age :D I love your makeup in the pic :) btw, not sure if you'll see this, but could you do a tutorial for blue eyes? Or just colors that look good on blue eyes? Other than brown.... :)

I have experienced every length, from super long to razor shaved short. My favorite has been the long length. Although it was obviously easy to maintain when I didn't have any hair, I missed my long hair. I learned to appreciaye the length and my hair itself when I had trouble growing it when I was pregnant with my second child. It literally grew maybe an inch over a years time! Now I love my naturally black hair thay is passed my shoulders. I try to do very little with it to keep it nice and healthy and not dry! Some people can dry, curl and flat iron their hair and keep it pretty, turns out my genetics let me down a bit on that department after having kids so now I try to take care of it a lot more. I'm scared of being unvoluntarily bald by the age of 25. Anyways, I guess my favorite cut and length is what I have now because I have learned to appreciate the hair I have since I felt I was going to lose it forever without a say in the matter. Xoxo

I always miss my long hair whenever I cut it... But every time it's long, I fantasize about changing up my style. I am currently growing it out to the length I had in high school (down to my waist) and then we'll see. ;)

I have naturally curly hair, and it used to be almost to my waist. I cut over a foot off and it has never recovered. I miss it everyday :(
