The Many Looks of Cari Lynn Vaughn

Peachy Cari Lynn Vaughn

My look keeps evolving. As an adult, I have had fun changing my hair style and the type of clothes I wear. I still enjoy dressing up–or as they now call it–Cosplay. The picture above is my most current selfie. My hair has the reddish blond highlights I love so much. I chose a peach shirt my kids bought for me, which went well of the background of my turquoise shower curtain.

Pixie Cut Cute Cari Lynn Vaughn

Most of my life, my hair has been fairly long. The shortest I had it was a inverted bob in the late 1990s. I chose a pixie cut in 2018 because I was going in for surgery. My hair was just one more thing to worry about, so I decided to cut it short. I think the short hair cut looked cute, but it drove me crazy when it started to grow out. It was such a pain to get it back to shoulder length again. As much as I hate the feel of hair on my neck and how hot it makes me, I just don’t think I can do it long term. I like have the option of wearing my hair down. It was nice at the time, but I am not sure I would cut it that short again.

Brown Haired Babe Cari Lynn Vaughn

I love the dark eye look. This was my effort at the smoky eye with lots of eye liner. While I love this look, eye make up tends to make my eye itch. Even when I get a hold of the supposedly hypoallergenic make-up, my eyes itch and water. So, I generally don’t wear eye make-up on the daily basis. I love this picture because my rich brown hair and dark make-up highlight my natural beauty. It is a good look for me.

Lounging in Lavender Cari Lynn Vaughn

I had wanted to dye my hair purple for a while. When I was between jobs in 2014, I took the chance to try it out. I think I pull it off. I used a kit that required me to bleach my hair first and then use the lavender dye. It faded quickly to pink over the next few months. If I did it over again, I would skip the bleach and try a darker shade.

Steampunk Cari Lynn Vaughn

I fell in love with Steampunk in 2012. I wanted to put together a Steampunk outfit for Halloween that year. I had a shoe string budget, so I put together this outfit from odds and ends at Walmart. They didn’t have a lot of brown, so I had to settled for black. One of these days I am going to spend the big buck on a real corset and all of that good stuff.

Basically Bollywood Cari Lynn Vaughn

I love scarves and I love belly dancing. I put together this outfit one day in 2011 while I was playing around. It isn’t really a Sari, although it looks like one. It was a blue crop top with an orange scarf, but it worked well to create the illusion of the Sari. I wouldn’t mind owning an actual Sari though. Notice, my hair here is blonde. I had dyed it a lighter color than usual. I think I wanted to feel light and fun during a dark time and the hair color helped with that.
