Who has one visible thumb and a new hair color? This girl!
My hair has been every natural shade in its young life. I was a platinum blonde toddler, but eventually my hair darkened and was the shade my roots used to be. In my pre-teens, I did the ol' sneaky trick in the summer of putting lemon juice on my head and sitting out in the sun. This gave me a fabulous shade of yellow. When I was 13, I got tired of all this blonde B.S. and dyed it dark. For the next three years, I was nearly every shade of brown imaginable, along with auburn and fire-engine red. I dyed it back to blonde when I was 16 (yup, I did it myself, and yup, it looked horrible). It's stayed a lighter shade of blonde ever since then. I'll be 21 in about a month. Needless to say, something needed to be done. Nearly five years of the same hair gets old.
Recently, I hadn't dyed my hair in over a year, which gave me those great roots (thank God the ombre look was trendy). I knew sooner or later I was going to have to do something with it. After much debate, I decided that it was going to be sooner.
And when I say much debate, I mean much. debate. In the end, I decided that I should dye it red because A) I'm not sure if blonde looks that good on me, anyway, B) Change is progression...if I can't change, I'll never progress, and therefore remain boring all throughout my live long days, C) I could be bald, but I'm not, so I might as well celebrate, and D) Emma Stone looks much better with red hair, and therefore, I probably do too.
I'm not going to tell you what I think of it because I don't want your opinion to be biased. I'll just tell you that I either love it or I hate it, and if you really know me well, I think you already know which one of those it is. So, give it to me. What do you think of my new 'do? Tell me in the comments!
I also want to thank Angela for answering all my hair emails. It was with her help that I decided to go red. I only wish I could have flown to Texas to have her do it for me!
