SURPRISE! I’m a brunette!
This is VERY unlike me and something I have never done before! My first highlights were in the eleventh grade (late bloomer I know). I think I got a measly eight streaks the first time; four blonde and four caramel. Every few months or so I just started adding more blonde highlights until it was always a fresh full head of them. Nothing else, nothing new and nothing more. ONCE did I buy a blonde box highlighting set and made my mom highlight my head via the cap. And only once did I ever do that because I ended up having a head full of Playboy Bunny Blonde. I’ve been blonde for so long but for the past few months I just have been craving a change and deep down needing one too. This change has been SO refreshing and SO therapeutic. Although it’s a bit darker than expected my mood is opposite of that. Lighter. Refreshed.
I had it in my head this weekend to just go for it. So off I went to the beauty supply outlet and…. wait for it… bought an $11 box of dye and $4 thing of peroxide and left my hair in my girlfriend’s hands. I couldn’t imagine spending over $100 at a salon to switch to brunette and then hate it and have to switch back. To me, going dark seemed idiot proof (with some googling) and then I’d be okay spending over $100 to go back blonde if it was a major mistake. I don’t think it was and am so glad I did it. It was a total positive mood changer for me.
Are you teetering on change? I say go for it! You never know what one little change can change 😉
