Well, as I told you yesterday, I have dyed my hair. After 4 and a half year of pink and blonde hair (and 4 years of pink, blonde and black) I was ready for a change. It was scary. I've been the girl with the pink hair since I was 16. It became a huge part of who I was, who I am. But when I dyed my hair originally I was 16 years old going through my obligatory emo phase, and my strict Catholic school wouldn't allow "unnatural" hair colours. I dyed it just after my high school prom. I loved my hair for making me stand out from the crowd, for making me different.
But a few weeks ago I decided I was ready for a change. Not a huge change; I wasn't ready to go back to basic blonde, but I didn't want to carry round the remnants of my emo phase everywhere I went. I made the decision to have all my pink dyed dark brown (the same colour as in my fringe) so I still had different hair, but not too different. I was nervous going into the hairdressers yesterday but I am SO happy with the result!!
Another liberating thing is being able to wear red!! I've probably mentioned it before but I avoided red for years after dying my hair pink for fear of clashing. I decided to celebrate with this red dress. It's funny, you might remember me moaning about disliking this dress in this post. Well this was my third outfit this morning and I actually quite like it, but I don't think it's anything special. I wasn't really going to do an outfit post today and just post my hair but I thought I may as well!!
dress- Forever 21
scarf- TK Maxx
shoes- New Look
I know it doesn't look hugely different, but I love it :]]]
Today has been a pretty boring day- I did get a furry hat though!! I've been after one for ages but I think I have a very small head- they're always too big!! The one I got is from Claire's though so I'm pretty sure it's for kids. I've just got loads of little things to do before heading back this weekend but I'm trying not to get too stressed!!
Let me know what you think of my hair :]]
