I’m warning you now: this is probably the last time you’re gonna see me.
See me like this, I mean. Because next week, I’m biting the bullet and I’m going to paint the town red. Or brown. Or somewhere in between.
I’m talking about dying my hair, of course. 😜
Now before you scold me and lecture me about keeping it real and embracing my age and going au natural, lemme clarify that I’m not doing this in an attempt to hang on to my fading youth. I’m just ready for a change is all, and I actually got approval from the hubs to do something to my hair. I’ve realized that I like the versatility of long hair – Shhh! Don’t tell my husband, but I hate it when he’s right! – and there’s no way I’m getting a perm. Shudder!
So color it is. And if the added bonus is that I’ll be covering up my white, then so be it.
Mind you, we’re talking virgin hair here so I’ll probably be locked in at the salon for hours. And KS#1 aka Queen of Color tells me they’re gonna have to “lighten the base” before they even attempt the highlights. So I may just regret the experience, if not the outcome. Still, it’s an adventure and the perfect way to start my summer. I have my appointment scheduled for the 10th, so get ready for the grand reveal after then.
In the meantime, here are the color choices I’ve Pinned. Feel free to chime in and tell me your favorite one. The hubs like Option 1 but we’ll see what the experts say come D-day. I may not have a choice in the matter depending on how my hair reacts to the dye.
Before it all goes away, then, enjoy the black tresses. And if it all goes south, at least hair grows out, right?
