I was born blonde. I had honey blonde hair and big green eyes, but over the years my hair got gradually darker and became that awkward color people call dirty or mouse blonde. Why would I ever want any part of me to be constantly referred to as “dirty” or “mouse”? It is not, in my opinion, attractive or appealing. So I decided to change it.
Instead of going to obvious route, adding blonde, I decided to be more unconventional (imagine that) and go red. So I have now had my hair dyed for about four years, and most everyone thinks it is natural and is shocked when I tell them I get it dyed once every few months.
But to be honest, I am kind of over it. I like change and experimenting, so I am now going lighter, a strawberry blonde. It was hard to find good pictures to describe what I want but Scarlett Johansson has really epitomized the color. So today I am heading to the salon getting it done. I haven’t been blonde since I was 13, so obviously I am nervous but I really hope it turns out the way I want it to.
