New do.

So, I've always wanted to do something fun with my hair. What I don't know. But, usually it inolves the color RED. Red all over, red streaks, red higlights. The problem with this though, is my hair is dark. Once I went and paid 85 dollars for red highlights, only to chicken out at the last minute and tell the lady "Not to drastic please" and came out looking pretty much like I did when I got there. I might as well have lit that 85 bucks on fire, because at least I would have been warm, getting SOMETHING out of it.

The thing is, I would have to BLEACH the parts I want to make red. BLEACH. I bleached my hair once, and HATED it. Everyone at the timewas bleaching blonde highlights in their hair, and I thought I should too. The thing with me, as with most fashion, what looks fab on everyone else, makes me look like I'm trying to hard. Then I had kids, and stuff like getting my hair dyed in some odd color was not important anymore. Getting dressed was the goal of the day, and getting dressed in something other than yesterdays sweats was enough to give you a gold medal in beauty.

I took the plunge yesterday. I dyed my hair a copper color over the summer. I liked it, but the whole eyebrows didn't match my hair thing drove me nuts. Now that it's getting cold, I decided to go back to my natural color, which I love, and don't know why I messed with to begin with. But, next thing I know, I'm buying a bleach kit and red dye to do what I've always wanted to do. I managed to pull my hair through myself, and bleach it, then painted the red on. It's not EXACTLY what I wanted, I just kind of of wanted red STREAKS but, I got the front of my head all red. Oh well. I still like it.

This is what I ended up with.

And yes I am wearing clothing. I'm wearing a terry tube dress, the must have accesory when dying your hair. It looks more pink in this pic, but it's definitetly red in real life.

This is outside today. I don't know WHY I'm making this face. I thought I was smiling. It looks like I'm on the toilet, but I swear to you, I'm not.

It looked really sweet in a ponytail.....

Again, tube dress. I threw it on today for comfort.

Do you see any lice? LOL

Then I got it cut. Because as cute as it looked in the ponytail, and even though I wear a ponytail 95% of the time, I just didn't like it as much long and red.

So, then I did this......

So, even though it may be a technical nightmare, I still think its pretty freaking cute!! :D
