That's 10-year-old me, above, rocking a truly fabulous feathered hairstyle in 1990. (And simultaneously rocking one of my very favorite tops of the moment, that fabulous red tee with huge black polka dots. I used to wear that shirt ALL. THE. TIME.) I'm fairly certain this was the day I got my hair cut, because I am just SO DARNED HAPPY HERE.
I think it's pretty interesting to look back at old photographs and remember some of the moments that really stood out as we were growing up -- and this was definitely one of mine. For better or worse, it was the first haircut I got that made a big impression on me and that I recall fondly to this day. I still remember sitting in the chair at the salon, looking through photos of feathered hairstyles with my stylist and choosing the one we thought would look the best. I really believe that this hairstyle (and the entire experience of making it happen) helped to -- pardon the pun -- shape my future not only as a person obsessed with hair (and beauty in general, of course), but as a beauty writer.
(Little did I know that growing out this haircut would actually be the bane of my existence. Trying to grow out layers that started all the way at the crown and went down to my chin? Um, are you kidding me?)
But, when I first got this haircut, I was just so excited about it. I felt super grown up and fabulous. Surprisingly, since my hair tends to do whatever it wants, it actually looked good every day for quite some time, too.
What's a beauty moment that stands out to you? Let me know in the comments!
