By seventeen, I was rocking this short layered do. I was not quite satisfied with the look at first.
Originally, I was hoping to look like Nia Long with a pixie cut. I wanted my hair to be dyed with medium brown base and copper and blonde highlights.
I was taking my senior pictures and I wanted a striking look. Instead I got the look that I rocked in my senior pictures, which was not a bad substitute.
At nineteen, I got another perm. And this time I colored my hair. I had only meant to apply a rinse, to add a splash of color. But instead I applied a dye, by mistake.
I applied the dye too soon after my perm. And there were huge patches of color instead of lines of color.
So I had this real funky look to my hair. The color and texture of my hair was way off. Almost comical in its appearance. I felt like a damn clown. But I still rocked it.
That was my final and last perm. From then on I rocked extensions for about a year.
