|Time for something new....|
I got to do a lot of things in high school. I went to Europe, I got to go to football games and sing all over the place, I explored bad clothing and teen angst (yay....) But one thing I never got to try was a different hair color.
I have chopped my hair off- I've tried different hair lengths, so that's all good in the 'hood. In fact, my senior year I chopped off more than a foot of hair in an angsty rage (again, yay....):
Crazy, right?! However, it all ended well, and I love my curls (and sometimes frizz). However, I really REALLY want to do something wild with the color. I've been wanting this for years, probably as long as I've wanted a tattoo (which I eventually got in 2009!), but I've been too much of a chicken to go all out.
Well, that ends now! I'm ready to do something a little crazy and out there. I mean, come on! If I don't like it, I can always cut it off and try again; I'm no stranger to short hair. So, I've begun my search for the perfect color of crazy hair, and I'm asking anyone who is reading this to give (constructive!) imput. Keep in mind, it's supposed to look a little crazy, definitely not meant to be Disney Princess worthy! Okay, let's begin:
Another pick was some kind of purple, which I'm also not so big on. I like the color purple, I'm not in love with it, and it doesn't have that pop that I'm looking for, ya know? So, sorry all you purple fans, but I'm taking it off the list!
The only think I'm worried about is totally ruining my hair FOREVER. I know that dying fries the hair- it makes your hair lose its shine, and it doesn't feel as soft and silky as it did before it was died. I also don't want my hair to be beyond frizzy, because it's frizzy enough as it is! If I'm gonna dye my hair, I'm gonna have to commit to it, because I'll need to probably buy products to help keep the color longer, de-frizz and condition, etc. That doesn't come cheap! Plus, my hair grows fast, so upkeep is gonna be... a bitch.
But I want it!!!!!! I want it BAD. And I know, there's a good chance I'll look ridiculous, but there's also a sliver of hope that I will look like a technicolor super-hero, which would be totally kick-ass. Plus, if I can get some new clothes that make me feel like a hipster/hippie, dying my hair would just complete the look! And I would be totally bad-ass.
Here's more pink!
