My look (not to mention my lifestyle/philosophies) changes depending on the guy I'm with. It happens kind of unconsciously, but if he's a suit, I find myself taking on lots of high-waisted pencil skirt/ blouse emsembles. Once I dated a complete pothead and spent weeks stuck in the grungy tank top-boyshorts phase.

10 or less. I've always had either a blonde bob or blonde long hair. I keep thinking about doing a pixie cut a la Audrey Tautou but I always hear that men aren't attracted to women with short hair. And I'm afraid I would hate it and then spend 4 years growing it out!

I'm always constantly changing my look. I like to play around with different colors, styles, and looks. Once in awhile I go from glam chick, to 50's glamour, rocker chick, and more. I just wear whatever I feel is comfortable at the moment or stylish. I also love to play with different hair styles and colors. Currently I'm growing my hair and it's dyed black. I'm wearing cat eye makeup, sleek black clothes, and light bronze lipstick.

mesayme... i'm very much w/you on that... people always recognize me, and because i so rarely make changes, when i do... everyone notices. i think my biggest changes have involved going from the 'big hair' to a more natural look.... i've dyed it dark (almost black) brown and have had bleached streaks in the front... and an allover lighter look. right now it's compeltely natural & i just got bangs cut... i hated them last week... this week... kinda liking them. an di've just been inspired to maybe go dark again.... (there's a coupla of "strays" mocking me)

Hardly, actually. Just one bad haircut in high school. Otherwise, I've always just let my hair do its own thing. Partly because people told me I shouldn't and that my hair is good the way it is...but also because I just don't have inspiration! I have no idea what would suit me, plus the bad experience in my teens has made me terrified of hairstylists altogether. The only makeovers I've had is in those virtual makeover-o-matics!

I answered 21-30, but now that I think about it I'm sure it's been more -- 21-30 since college. I do a complete overhaul on my look every 6 months or so, with 2 or 3 minor tweaks in the haircut or color patterns between. It might be an addiction. I am desperately trying to lock myself into bleach blond for the next year so that my next move can be recreating the look of my favorite pastel pink and white wig.

I have never had really long hair. Right now I am trying to grow it out to donate to "Locks of Love". My husband would choke if I went back to the spikey look. Curly hair is something I always wanted and would get a perm. HAHA it is that way naturally now. Hormones can do miraculous things. Hair appointment on Tuesday.

I am 19, and I think I still look the same. Never dyed my hair or had any cool hairstyles I could do myself. Have had long hair my whole life, and I am thinking of getting it cut to shoulder length soon. :)

A lot. My looks just evolve. I think it's because my tastes have changed. People in high school do not recognize me. People in college do not recognize me. People in my last two careers do not recognize me. LOL. The funny part is that I recognize them! :) Usually, their response is flattering. I've been told I aged very well. Lately, my own mother is looking at me with new eyes. During the past year, I've been growing my hair out. Previously, I've sported a short hairstyle for several years. My hair is growing in thick and full, and she likes it. It makes me look very feminine. My Mom told me to "never" cut my hair. She wants me to grow it to an indefinite length. Uh, I'll see. So even now, due to my growing hair, my look is changing.

Quite a few times, actually, but a lot of that has been the transition between growing hair out and lopping it off. It's shoulderish now, and I think it's time for a cut!

Not enough times, actually. I still have to dye my hair before the end of this year.

I'm 36 and my high school pals recognize me immediately, what does that say? But I'm very comfortable with my whole self...I wouldn't change much at all. :)

3 or 4, maybe. I was a bit awkward in high school, then a bit too sexy in my early 20s, then there might have been another transition in there, and then how I am now.

God, I wouldn't even know when to start. The first time I changed my hair, I dyed it pink in middle school... and I'd say I've either cut or dyed it every 4-6 months since then and I'm 23 now. Right now, I'm rocking a black long-banged pixie. :)

I've changed my look around 20 times. I'm only 19, or it'd be more, I think. :) I like to treat my hair as an accessory, so I've had it almost every color of the rainbow, and in more than ten different cuts. So much fun!

I'm in desperate need of a makeover. My style is easy to change, but not my over all look. That's what college does to ya!

I'm still a teen so I've still got time to change my look. I've never had long hair before, I'm growing it now :)

I'm 20 and I've never drastically changed my look. In fact, I think the only major change I've had with my look was when I was 10 and I cut my hair until just under my ears. It looked HORRIBLE because I hadn't started using a hair dryer, so it was always frizzy and horribly not-quite-straight-not-quite-curly. I'm thinking of getting bangs though. I don't know how they'll work with my face, but I always think bangs make people look better, so hopefully they'll work?
