My birthday is the 18th, but this past Friday I was able to celebrate it with a large group of friends. Moving to a new town where I knew no one during the early days of my transition was very difficult. After spending the first 5 months of that time building my confidence to venture out and make connections.. I declared 2016 to be the year of Ari. I began going to meetups to find people I could connect with. 3+ years later and I am able to fill a cidery bar with an amazingly beautiful variety of friends that I could only imagine the day I moved so long ago. To my friends, I love you all! Thank you for the joy you all bring to this girl. To those afraid to venture into a scary new change.. you really can, just don’t do it alone for too long! #girlslikeus #transvengers #blondehair #pinkpeekaboohighlights #peekaboohighlights #girlswithglasses #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #friendsforlife #friendship

I’m late in posting the followup to my new hair post where you all saw my hair straightened. For the party that night, I also asked to have my stylist throw some curls in. This is the result. #girlslikeus #transvengers #arihasupdatedhergoldenlocks #stackedbob #bighairchange #girlswithglasses #lgbt #happypridemonth🌈 #happypride🌈 #peekaboohighlights #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #omgnoglasses #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana #summerdress

Soooooo… I had the guts to do this.. happy birthday to me! My birthday is actually the 18th but last night was a party with a bunch of my friends. So I went for a new cut. (Party pics to be posted later today or in an insta story) It was time to keep my dyed hair more healthy, due to the long length I had I was experiencing some breakage and wanted a break from the maintenance for the summer. I also had been clipping it up lately at about the length I thought I wanted it. For a while, I tested this out both with it straightened and curly. This helped me to be sure I was ready for this cut. It is a stacked bob style and I am in love with the results! Thank you to @katia970 for the amazing cut and as always thanks to @squeeekin for the gorgeous highlights. I love everyone at @zanosalons #newhair #stackedbob #bighairchange #transvengers #nogutsnoglory #girlslikeus #girlswithglasses #peekaboohighlights #summerdress #flowerdress #pinkpeekaboohighlights #blondehair #blowoutstyles #stackedbobcut #lgbtq🌈 #happypridemonth #happypride #twitchaffiliate twitch.tv/maidenariana
