I Am My Hair

10:36 PM

Or that's what Lady Gaga once sang.

I was born a strawberry blonde, and my hair has been every shade of red, orange, magenta, brown, a few blonde shades, and occasionally black. I've accidentally dyed my cat pee yellow, but that's another story.

One thing I haven't done is try out one of the new pastel trends running rampant. Since I have a pixie cut right now, I've been thinking that this would be a good time to try out an artificial shade. The problem is that I'm ultra pale, so pale that only two brands I know of make foundations light enough for me to wear. Thankfully, both are cruelty-free! (Thanks, Kat Von D and NARS!)

But onto the hair. I'm so torn! Everyone I know says I look the most like myself with my trademark red hair, and I do love it. I'll always go back to it. But have you ever just wanted to make a really drastic change? That's how I feel right now. I'm also tempted to dye my hair white or gray. Decisions, decisions. I'm just not sure if I can pull it off.

Should I try it?

  1. I totally get you! I want to try those pastel colors so bad. I am so exited about it. But, I can't make up my mind on what color to pick. I hope to make up my mind and decide a color soon.
    Best Wishes! :)

  2. It's so hard to pick one! I'm leaning toward pink or purple because I'm eventually going to want to go back to red, and those seem like they would hold onto it more than gray or white, but... ugh, still not sure!

  3. True red hair never goes gray.

    1. No, it just turns white and this very strange apricot color.

  4. Try it. I would love to, but don't think I can at this stage of life. In 15 more years maybe I'll be all gray naturally and then I'll go for it!

    1. I might have to give it a go soon. I keep going back to the idea, so it has to happen eventually. Haha! In 15 more years it should be in style again!
