The other week, my sister cut off most of her hair. This is a big deal, as she has had long hair practically forever. With the exception of one brief period of craziness a few years ago, when she donated it to Locks of Love. The result is really cute and fresh.
So that got me thinking that maybe I could make a change and have a really cute and fresh result as well.
However, given that
my long hair is my security blanket I really like having long hair, cutting it all off is not really an option for me. ((I also donated my hair to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program in October 2010 and immediately swore to never cut my hair that short ever again. Ever.)) I decided to go the wild and crazy route of coloring my hair.
After much deliberation and the realization that I am, in fact, a total wuss when it comes to changing my hair, I went with Natural Instincts Semi-Permanent dye. Because then, if it was hideous, at least it would only be hideous for 28 shampoos. And it wouldn’t actually need any upkeep because I could just let it fade away rather than shelling out the insane amount of $5 for a new box of dye every 6 weeks or so. ((Like I’ve said before, I’m cheap. I can’t help it.)) I picked the oh-so-daring shade of “Toasted Almond.”
Naturally, the DreadBrewer insisted on getting involved in the whole process. The problem with him “helping” is that he’s such a perfectionist! You’re only supposed to leave the dye on for 10 minutes after you’ve finished applying it, but that doesn’t really take into account the fact that it took DB 30 minutes to apply the dye in the first place!
So, are you ready for the big reveal?
