My Hair Styles

 Like I mentioned on my About Me page, I change my hair a lot. Allow me to demonstrate.

March 2013

funny how my hair is almost the same length, color and style as the very first picture in this series from May 2005 (scroll to the bottom to see). It was always my favorite – and now i’m back to it!

April 2009. This is as close as I’ve been to my natural color in a long time (this was in April 2009 and the last time I’d colored it before this was in October 2008). So I think I have light brown hair naturally now (it was a lot lighter when I was younger). Sorry about the weird shot; I didn’t want to exploit my darling niece on my blog so I cropped her out. :) IMG_0563c

August 2006. Hi faux-hawk. I miss you. 

May 2006 (I wonder if my hair was poking my friends in the head.)

May 2005

Feel free to let me know your favorite!

hi! i just found you through a comment you left at kitchen corners.
i love this post, i change my hair constantly too and i love seeing fun hair journeys!
my votes: May 05, July 07,August 09, Feb 10. blonde looks great on you, you look younger with curls and older with straight. at least from an outside hair doers view. ;)


2 Teri 12/22/2010 at 4:03 pm

Thanks for letting me know your favorites! I always like feedback, especially from “outsiders”. :)


3 Amelia Daw 12/22/2010 at 7:03 pm

November 2005, and September 2009 are my favorite Teri!!! Miss you girl!!!


4 Teri 12/24/2010 at 9:32 am

Miss you too!!!! Hope you are loving your new town!


5 Krystal 12/22/2010 at 9:15 pm

I so wish I still had pics left from Middle school….You look exactly the same! Love the Blog!


6 Teri 12/24/2010 at 9:32 am

haha! Yes, I do look the same! :)

Thanks for visiting my blog! <3


7 D 12/23/2010 at 10:40 pm

You look so much like Carrie Underwood – it’s remarkable!


8 Teri 12/24/2010 at 9:29 am

oh my goodness, you just made my day!!!! THANK YOU!!!!! I LOVE Carrie Underwood and think she is beautiful!!


9 Hannah Crum 12/28/2010 at 11:46 pm

Hi Teri! LOVE your hair story in photos – wow – mine would be quite a journey as I shaved my head in high school and then dyed what grew back into various colors. These days, I’m totally dye free and I love it! You are quite adorable and I can see why you are the favorite ;)


10 Teri 02/06/2011 at 10:55 pm

wow! you are brave! Did you like having the shaved head? I think some women pull it off beautifully!


11 Rachel 12/30/2010 at 5:57 pm

Hey Teri!

I love how you’ve tried everything. Honestly, you look good with all of them! Not many people can pull off every hairstyle. :) My favorites are: the dark and straight by a christmas tree with a dog, the short wavy blonde with black headband, and at the top under May 2005. It was too hard to decide on just one!


12 Andrea 01/10/2011 at 9:55 pm

I love your blog! I used to be the same in college and a little after – long hair, 1″ hair, platinum, black and everything in-between! Now, it’s fairly boring ;) medium color and long. I’m now paranoid of cutting it which is odd considering my old ways. ;)

~andrea (


13 Teri 02/06/2011 at 10:55 pm

haha! I love finding others that understand the desire to change! But that is funny that you are scared of cutting it now! :)


14 LG 01/19/2011 at 10:20 am

Ooo…this is inspiring…I like the super short one as well as the long blond one with the bangs. But they all look great!

Great. Now I want to get my hair done! Do you have a stylist do the color or do you have any at-home tips? It would be so much fun to change it up often, but I’m my natural color right now because we’re trying to save $$. Ho hum.


15 Teri 02/06/2011 at 10:54 pm

I used to color my hair myself about 7 years ago but I’ve been going to a stylist since. If you do it at home, I would use a demi-permanent color since it won’t damage hair as much and if you don’t love it, you can get it to wash out more easily by shampooing it multiple times.

I would probably never try blonde by myself but I’m more daring with brunettes from a store box of color. :)


16 Jenn 02/03/2011 at 4:39 pm

Your hair grows amazingly fast! I love the auburn on you, but each color truly looks amazing. I admire you taking so much risk with the different styles!


17 Marie 02/04/2011 at 6:31 pm

Hi! I found your site through Janetha’s. :) I LOVE you hair story; it’s amazing how many looks you were able to have! :) My favorites are May 2005, July 2007, August 2009, and Feb 2010! :) BTW, how did you curl your hair in the Aug. 2009 picture since your hair is so short? I LOVE it! :)


18 Teri 02/06/2011 at 10:48 pm

Hi Marie! Thanks for visiting!

I curled it with a small barrel curling iron, starting by grabbing the hair up by the root and twisting down. It’s hard to explain…perhaps I’ll do a video on it soon!


19 Marie 02/16/2011 at 11:16 pm

Yes, please! ;)


20 kelly 02/06/2011 at 9:15 pm

copper/red with bangs and layers..deffinately the most flattering colour on you!


21 kelly 02/06/2011 at 9:17 pm

the long version!!…(pic with dog and bf)


22 Teri 02/06/2011 at 10:47 pm

thanks! that’s one of my very favorites too!


23 Robyn 03/03/2011 at 3:28 pm

May 2005 & Dec 2008 are my favorites!


24 Teri 03/19/2011 at 2:57 pm

those are two of my favorites too!


25 Patricia 03/06/2011 at 12:21 am

If you love Pureology you will go crazy for Alterna Caviar Shampoo/Conditioner and the masque. Have you tried them I think they are superior to Pureology by far, definitely worth the price…

26 Teri 03/19/2011 at 2:56 pm

oooh, I’ve never heard of that brand – I’ll check it out. thanks!


27 Midlife Cruiser 03/10/2011 at 12:22 am

I keep coming back to this post as I try to decide what to do with my mop of hair! I LOVE how confident and gorgeous you are in your many hair styles! I will keep coming back to build up my courage to go shorter :)

28 Teri 03/19/2011 at 2:56 pm

thank you! I hope this page helps you get the courage to cut it – having a short hair style is so liberating for some reason! I feel like I can conquer the world when my hair is above my shoulders! :)


29 LauraJayne 03/14/2011 at 2:00 pm

I adore this “hair journey” about you! I am constantly changing my hair too – combined with my weight loss, I’ll meet people that I had a class with in college that have NO idea who I am!

that is AWESOME!


31 fittingbackin 03/17/2011 at 6:34 pm

I LOVE May 2005 – but mostly i’m just shocked at how many looks look GOOD on you! I just found your blog and if I didn’t like it i’d probably hate you. (due to jealousy :)) I’ve had the same hair FOREVER. True story! :) Found your blog from hungry meets healthy – love it!


32 Teri 03/19/2011 at 2:55 pm

hahaha! Well, I’m glad you don’t hate me! ;) I’m so glad you came to visit my blog! I just looked at yours – I LOVE that striped dress you posted on Thursday!!


33 Joan 03/18/2011 at 8:40 pm

last one DEFINITELY :D


34 Teri 03/19/2011 at 2:54 pm

thanks! I love that one too! :)


35 Running Betty 03/20/2011 at 7:19 pm

I hardly ever change my hair and I never color my hair, so this was fun for me to see. I think you look much younger with waves and hair to at least your shoulders. I think short and straight ages you. Not that it’s any of my concern… but you asked…


36 Teri 03/20/2011 at 7:24 pm

that’s great feedback – thanks for sharing! I’ll especially take note as I’ll be turning 27 this year! :)


37 Kat @ My fruity life 03/21/2011 at 9:07 am

Hi, I just found your blog thru Fitnessista! You really can pull off just about any hair color! I love your blond and brown colors equally, do you get that a lot?

I have to comment on your darling new boxer. We just got one too! He’s about 4 1/2 months right now. They are the best dogs ever and I am pretty much obsessed with mine :)

xo Kat


38 Kelly 03/21/2011 at 12:05 pm

WOW! I love it when people are adventerous with their hair because I am most definitely not. It is hard to pick a favorite because you are just so adorable! But I really like the November 2005 picture.


39 Mila @ loftyappetite 03/28/2011 at 7:15 am

wow i love this page! you are so lucky that you can pull off every single kind of hair color/style and look stunning in ever single one. i’m a little jealous, my jet black eyebrows force me to stay in only the brown/black color range.
Mila @ loftyappetite´s last blog post ..the green monster


40 Beth {Embracing Twentysomething} 03/28/2011 at 1:30 pm

You probably have the most stunning face of anyone I’ve seen.. which is why your hair looks amazing in every color, length, and style! Completely jealous. :) November 2005 and November 2008 are my favs…. although you’re GORGEOUS in all! Love your blog!


41 vegan pretty 03/29/2011 at 12:36 am

Wow, you look amazing in every shot. Love the Nov 2008 with your puppy. What colour did you use ?
Love your blog !!


42 Katie 05/09/2011 at 2:30 pm

You carry the reds and browns beautifully! But you look good regardless, so have fun with it! :)

Now I’m re-debating what color to do my hair this week… I could do a similar blog of all the colors I have gone through (not as drastic with cuts though, I’m scared of going too short!). Currently at a dark blonde. Done with black. Not a fan of my natural. Miss the red/browns at times. But don’t miss the hair stripping process!


43 Amanda Jewell 06/08/2011 at 12:22 am

You look amazing in all the different colors and lengths! Even though I always advocate going brunette [since I am one ;-) ], but I have to say, I think I like you best as a blonde. November 2005 is my favorite! <3

44 Teri 06/08/2011 at 4:40 pm

Thank you! and thanks for your vote! I always felt most “myself” as a blonde but I’m quite digging the red right now… but I know I’ll always default to blonde eventually.


45 Larissa 06/26/2011 at 4:30 pm

i love the june and august 2009. I just got my hair cut really similar to this and am blonde too so i might be partial :)


46 Colleen 07/08/2011 at 7:17 am

I think May 2005 and October 2008 are my favorites. You really do have a great colorist! The blond looks so natural.


47 Melissa @ Live, Love, & Run 07/11/2011 at 8:22 am

I had to check this out after seeing it on Lisa’s blog…oh my God, I love your hair. I think you have a trick…short to long to short and colored. Somehow…it looks absolutely 100% healthy! How do you do it!?! :)

And by the way….love your blog and just have to tell you, you’ve got such a beautiful smile! :)


48 Corrie Anne 07/12/2011 at 10:33 pm

OOOOOO! Tons of changes. So inspiring. I never ever change my hair!!


49 Diana Amy 07/20/2011 at 10:06 pm

You look gorgeous in every rendition!

Just found your blog and I am loving it! xo

I think I just found my Hair Soulmate! I totally do this too, ALL THE TIME, and have been wanting to create a post just like this one! You’ve officially inspired me to share some of my hair changes with the world, too. Happy cutting/dying/blowdying/curling/highlighting/etc!

Hi Teri,
I just stumbled upon your blog through the fitnessista. It’s incredible how beautiful you look with all those different styles. Every one looks great! Do you have a favorite?


53 Lindsay @ Lindsay's List 10/21/2011 at 1:37 pm

HOW is this the first time I’m reading your blog?!?! Found you from Holly’s blog. I gotta say, you can rock all of those hairstyles, but my favorite was the auburn (oct. 2008)…so rich and lovely!

I love them all! I’m actually insanely jealous that you can pull off any hair style/color.

My hair has been the same for life. Medium length, brown, & straight but sometime wavy. I only get trims & I hate when the hair stylist takes off more than an inch at a time!

Cheers to always changing & look fabulous!

59 Rebekah 03/07/2012 at 2:12 pm

I stumbled upon your blog from another blog I was reading, and I must say – your hair looks fabulous in any cut/color! I completely understand, as I change my hair color all the time. I’ve done different lengths, too – never above the shoulders though. You’re brave!

Love your blog – keep up the fantastic work.


60 Teri 03/12/2012 at 10:17 pm

Thank you!! :)


61 Amy 03/21/2012 at 8:40 pm

Hi Teri,
I love your website. Wow, you look fantastic in ALL of these pictures. It is hard to pick one but I guess I like the last one and the one with the puppy and your husband. As a fellow fitness instructor and someone who is looking to do something “different” with my medium length (below my shoulders) hair that I only highlight and rarely change… What is the easiest hairstyle that you have had. I need to find something that looks good with my face shape (narrow and long) as well as my hair type (thick and semi wavy). I usually blow it out with a round brush or let it air dry. Any thoughts are appreciated. :)


62 Marnie 04/27/2012 at 4:24 pm

You need to update this!!! So many changes since Dec 2010 :)


63 Dori 07/02/2012 at 2:51 pm

You have to have a really pretty face (and pretty easy to maintain hair, I’d think) to pull off such a variety of hairstyles and always look great! I’m envious of all your styles over the year. This is such a fun thing you have to look back on and remember all the different parts of your life!


64 Chelsea @ CrazyBullies 02/15/2013 at 5:28 pm

I like the violet auburn! very pretty!


65 Lauren 03/05/2013 at 8:29 pm

You look amazing with every hair color. Not many people can do that! Great blog.


66 Teri [a foodie stays fit] 03/06/2013 at 9:07 pm

Thanks! :)


67 Shardae Curtis 03/14/2013 at 6:58 pm

My favorites are Nov. 2009 and 2011. I love the bangs in 2011! And I remember the faux hawk; didn’t Jason do that?


68 Teri's Mom 03/15/2013 at 12:37 pm

You can, and have, pulled of everything with style and beauty! So…
May 2006, NOT August 2006, and yes, there is a difference
August 2011
But I still love the last picture of the 2 of you.


69 Maria 06/16/2013 at 8:45 pm

Confession: every time I’m about to get a haircut, i got to this page for inspiration. I’m really liking November 2008 (omg, Maizey) and January 2013. I haven’t had bangs since I was 8…so we shall see :)


70 Kristin 01/05/2014 at 12:03 pm

Love January 2013! I need to be a little more adventurous with my do–my hair has looked (almost) the same for the past 10 years.
