my friend Therese asked me some time ago to write about all my hairstyles I had by now. For those who know me for a longer time or who read my diary from the beginning know, that I’ve never been afraid to change my hair. There is no color I didn’t try and I already had short and very long hair. At the moment I let my hair grow again because last year I cut them from very long to short.
Today I want to take my readers to a very personal journey from the beginning when I was a child until today. So let’s start…
- Looking like a boy
When I was around 3 years old I had big curls and dark hair. And because I didn’t wear pink clothes all the time it seemed that I could be a boy.
- Flirting like Ronja the Robber’s Daughter
At the age of 5, my parents let my hair grow a little bit more and I looked like a charming princess. Besides, I’ve always been a very feisty person, all the time on the search for new adventures. Therefore, also my nature was a little bit like a boy. My bike was my best friend and with my bike I felt wild, free and absolutely independent.
- Long, longer, the longest
When I was around 7 years old I let my hair grow very long. People liked my long hair and for the next 5 years I was afraid of cutting them short.
- I don’t care
At the age of around 12 up to 14 I let my hair cut short. I don’t remember the reason why I did it, maybe because I was some kind of rebellious or because I wanted to express that I didn’t care about anything.
- Mirror, mirror on the wall…
From the age of around 16 I got more and more vain and I started to let my hair grow again. Of course, I’ve always been very vain, but I would deny that this was the pivotal year when a lot in my life changed completely. This was also the age when I got my first piercing. For the next years I wanted to have many more piercings and I also thought about having tattoos. My wild nature always wanted to express it’s independence.
- Making experiences
In the 20s I tried a lot. I died my hair black, red, blonde… I was very adventurous and I always had the feeling to try out new things. There was also a time when I had fringes, black and long hair. This hairstyle I liked very much.
- Bye bye long hair…
Last year I cut my hair short because I needed a new thrill. After cutting I felt amazing and I first thought that I never want to let my hair grow again. Error, only after a few month I knew that I want to wear long hair again. But this time, my hair should be dark. No highlights, no blonde, no reflections… only dark.
