Hair Color

 Me (on the left),  my blond niece  that's in the 8th grade, and my niece that is a high school senior with red hair.
Are you a blond, brunette, or red head?  Are you a combination of the three, or the color you chose with your stylist during your last visit to the beauty salon?  Well...  these three beauties have what I call, "God given hair"!  We all have the color of hair that we were born with.  While visiting with my nieces in Michigan, I realized they both have the "perfect" hair color.  Perfect because many women pay big bucks to get their color of hair.  I expressed that thought to my nieces, and told them what a BLESSING it was to have such a beautiful, unique, color of hair. It's just hard to believe WE are blood relatives, with such a variety of  hair colors .  But it's true!
 Now about the other beauty (he,he), the brunette... I started out as a blond (both of my children did too) but at the age of 7 or 8, my hair started getting darker and that trend has continued to this day (the same way for both my children)!  I've always been happy with that God given color.  However, that may change as more gray starts to creep in...???

I have such dishwater colored hair - I used to be blonde. I have the least gray hair of any of my siblings, and I'm the oldest. They don't like that much! But I'm to cheap and too lazy to have my hair color "fixed."

Dawn~ I didn't see much gray either and loved the "dishwater/natural" look. I'm sure the siblings are jealous especially with you being the oldest. I hope I'm not disappointed when more gray does arrive. I'm just too low maintenance, cheap, and lazy... just like you!

I cannot for the life of me figure out what that is on that picture - you mean by the lady whose bra strap is hanging down on her arm?? I enlarged it as big as I can and still can't figure out what it is. I'll have to see if DC can figure it out.

Thanks for coming over - glad you enjoyed the visit!

Dawn~ Too funny. Maybe it's a kid's sand toy. I'm sure you would have seen a duck so it must be a toy.

Hi Nancy,
I think you each look beautiful with your God given hair. I colored mine for years (more than 20) as I went totally gray at age 30. Now I wear what God has given me.
Have a great week!

You are all adorable. I started to go gray in my early thirties and thought I would just let it stay natural. However, my husband didn't have a single gray hair until a few years ago, and rather than look like his mother I decided to color mine. I am now light years away from my natural dark brown!!

Susie~ You have such a cute cut... it makes you look young no matter the color. Coloring would be a hassle but I may have to do it... time will tell.

Linda~ That's so funny. Joe and I are the opposite... he turned gray at least 15 to 20 years ago. I loved it from day one but many have thought over the years that he was much older than me, which he isn't. Now that I've caught up with him on the wrinkles, everyone just assumes that I color mine... which I may do at some point. I will never say, "never"!

Such three beautiful gals! :)

Actually, Nancy, the more pictures I see of you lately, the more I'm amazed at how much you look like one of my sisters in law, who also is named Nancy! She's about your age, too, and the resemblance in uncanny!
(She's also a teacher!)

I kept from ever having hair color touch my brown tresses until shortly after I turned 40...those grays just kept coming in faster than I could pluck them out! ;)

Come check out the home school open house when you can!

Tammy~ I love your homeschool link! You are so creative and what a blessing you will be for other homeschoolers!

Your poor SIL, if she looks like me! I try to do the best I can with what I have but... as I mentioned earlier in my comments- I am VERY low maintenance!

My hair used to be blonde as a child, then darker blonde in later years. I kept it frosted for 30 years. I honestly wouldn't mind it being gray, if it was a nice gray. But my increasing number of gray hairs make me look tired out. Soooo...I have my hairdresser do fun things with color. I have some streaks right now and a funky a-line cut.

MG~ Good for you, go girl! I would love to see your funky cut and I wish I could be as adventurous. I just have funky glasses, something I could try on before it became permanent! I admire your adventurous spirit!

I will have to do something too, if the gray comes in and makes me look tired. I already look tired and I don't need any help in that area! hehe

Congrats on your daughter's teaching honor! Those are rewarding days amid rewarding days.

My Natalie is in 8th grade with braces--looks like a brunette version of your neice.

Have a great week!

Hi Tom~ Thanks for stopping by. I had remembered your daughter was about the same age. It's always fun to spend time with them in Michigan.

I was so excited about Katherine's award. Teaching can be such a thankless job but little honors like this along the way make it all worthwhile.

I think all of you have very beautiful hair.

I used to have blonde hair as well. I used to really like my hair back in high school. I had different streaks of blond running through it and people would ask if it was natural or if I had it professionally done (my oldest daughter now has the same color hair that I did). As I got older it became more of a darker blonde/light brown color. I began coloring it a reddish auburn a few years ago when the grays started showing up (my dad went prematurely gray) and like it a lot better.

Cris~ Thanks for the compliment. I never would have thought you colored your hair because you look so young and I love the color. GRAY hair already, you are just like my hubby.

Sometimes I wonder what my TRUE color is..i think brunette. I love the color that my hair dresser makes it but i just cannot afford the price. Now I have a lot of grey escaping up there....OOOPS!! I love seeing your picture too.

Sandy~ That's funny, my younger sister says the same thing about her hair color.

Cute picture! My youngest son is auburn/red headed; for some reason people comment on red hair more than any other I think and when he was a toddler he told people he didn't have red hair but brown, the rest of us all had brown hair! Now he likes it. Mine? It has some highlighted help now!
