What To Do With My Hair?

I am at a cross roads... With my hair. I'm trying to figure out what looks best on me. I've just spent the last couple of hours scouring photos of my hair for the last decade and more. Hmmm... It's been pretty eye opening... You should try it. Here's one from the 80's....Oh Boy! What a fashionista...NOT!
1980s
Are you one of those that keeps the same hairstyle for 20 yrs? I've seen this same style today! Look at my baby girl... so adorable!!
1990s
Hair is sooo important to women! We spend hours on it! Well, I have.... Seriously, men have it pretty easy.  It's either short, super short or like my hubby, shaved.

Here's one from 2000. Oh, dear Lord...
2000
I can't imagine one reason I thought that was even remotely attractive. Horrible! Embarrassingly awful!

Oh! Thank The Lord, I grew it out a bit!
2001
Nice round shag cut, with a flip at the bottom...very in... at the time. Kinda reminds me of Florence Henderson from The Brady Bunch!

We're going to jump to 2006.  That short flippy look. Better...
2006

Still the same kinda look in 2009. You know finding these Christmas photos, you can see the change in all of us over the years. :) I couldn't resist this one, my daughter cracks me up!!
2009

Summer of 2011, I must have been hot, because I got a very short stacked bob. It's not bad....eh....
2011

Later in 2011, I thought it would be cute to get a perm...Not lovin that look. Plus no picture looks good taken from below.
2011

2012, I must have decided to forgo the perm.  Good call. Growing it a bit longer.
2012
Here I am with a sweet blogger friend of mine... Miss her! It's 2013 and the hair is still straight and short to medium length.
2013

2014 was the year of growing out the bangs.  I have ALWAYS had bangs.
2014
This was hard to do. Many many times I wanted to cut them, but I figured I should try this at least once in my lifetime. I was thrilled when they got to the point where they would stay tucked behind my ears.

So... What to do?
2015
I'm pushing 50, I used to think that when I got "older" I wouldn't have long hair. You know the whole "hanging on too tight". But now... 50 doesn't seem that old and having hair somewhat long doesn't seem like it's only for the young, so we'll see.

Going through all these photos has also given me an opportunity to see what worked and what DID NOT! I always thought I had too big of a forehead to go without bangs, but it doesn't really seem that bad. We are always our own worst critics!

When I started this post I seriously didn't know what I was going to do with my hair, cut it, leave it, go back to bangs. But I think I've sorted it out. My favorite years would probably be 2009, 2013 and now. Thanks, guys! You helped me and you didn't even know it! I'll be calling my hairdresser tomorrow and making an appointment. :)

Just for fun...What year is your favorite?

Blessings!
