Back to Blonde

I know it's only hair.  But, darnit, I just love mine so much better when it's blonde.  I did the dark(er) thing.  And I liked it okay.  My love for it, however, faded fast, taking with it the lowlites (which, if you weren't aware, fade really quick) and my self-esteem. 

So, while I'm getting ready in the morning for school, already lamenting over the fact how I have nothing to wear, the morning is further complicated by the fact that I spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to convince myself that I'm better off brunette-ish. 

Maybe if I wear it this way, it will look better... 

Maybe if I just trimmed my bangs, it will look better... 

Maybe if I lose 5 lbs, it will look better...

And then, this morning, in a weak moment I called, booked the appointment with Savannah, and told them to pencil me in for a blonde highlight. Eight hours later, I'm taking awkward self-photos to prove that blonde is oh so much better. At least on me :)

Sarah said...

Sigh. Seeing your blonde hair is making me second guess myself. I have spent the past few days trying to convince myself to go from blonde to brunette. I thought it might be a good change, but now I'm thinking that I should just play it safe and go get my usual blonde highlights. Oh hair drama. Your hair looks beautimous!

I've been blonde all my life but the older I get the darker it gets! I decided to just go darker and now I wish I never had! Blonde is always SO much better. I just feel so much more confident! Yours looks great! But what did it look like before??
Love your blog!

I am not even all the way blonde, and I totally agree! All over dark is just draining...and aging! I started off with high- and low- lights a few years ago, and learned quickly those darn low-lights only shine for a short while.

Your hair looks fantabulous, and it is a given...blondes do have more fun!

Ari- Audrey Onassis said...

You'd look gorgeous with any color, but I agree that blonde is more you!

Kate said...

Hair color is something that I lost control of at 13 years old. I went against my mother and tried to go bleach blonde with a bottle of Sun-In leaving me with bright orange hair. Since then my hair has been every color under the sun, but I somehow always wind up back at blonde. I love it and you should too, your hair looks amazing!
