Neither Hair nor There...

Change is upon us people. Not just because I'll be entering the realm of motherhood, no, it's that spring is around the corner and what that means is changes to my hair! Lately I have really been missing my blonde locks, I haven't been blonde in what seems like a lifetime. I'm not ready to go fully blonde yet, I haven't decided if I'm ready to fully commit to it. When I'm blonde, I get my hair done every 8-10 weeks to avoid the ghetto crack look of roots. They are the worst beauty enemy! I hate them.

So I made an appointment with my magician hairdresser and started looking all over for some ideas of something in-between that's not ombre. I still like the look overall, but I'm over mine. I say that, and then I'll have a great hair day and I'm like, I love it! Then my blonde love affair comes back and ombre is in the wind.

Here I am very blonde, on my wedding day vs my hair today:

Now, I love how the dark brunette makes my eyes pop and doesn't wash me out like being blonde can do, but when I think of myself, I still picture myself blonde. Plus, like I said, it's getting close to spring so I think lightening up is perfect. Here is some of my inspiration I've found on Pinterest:

I love the last three pictures, that they're a darker with lots of highlights, lightening it up overall. I'm leaning towards this for now and seeing where it takes me for the rest of summer and future hair appointments. I just want something that's bright, lighter, but not as high maintenance as when I'm full on blonde.

My appointment is at the end of the month, right before my shower, a wedding, and our maternity pics so I have some time to make a decision, but wanted to share what I'm thinking now. Also, my hair is not longer or thicker due to being pregnant. That was one thing I've been looking forward to my whole life! I figured that I would finally get long hair when I was pregnant instead of this medium length I've had my whole life. Whatever those other preggers were doing, apparently I'm not (and yes, I'm taking my pre-natals). So non-preggers, take note: this does not happen to everyone so squish that hair dream now!

What are your hair plans for spring and summer? Please share!
