I recently had my hair colored. For years I’ve been adding blond highlights to blond highlights and last week I threw my hands in the air and declared that I was tired of layered blonde highlights with light brown growth at my roots. My hair gal and I sat to analyze little hair samples in her L’anza book, and ultimately we settled on one that I thought was going to give me glorious brown locks with a hint of copper.
Even now, days later, I’m surprised when I look in the mirror and see mostly copper with a hint of brown.
I like it. I do. But I’m in a bit of shock about it too.
It has caused me to think a bit about how to embrace being a redhead. For instance, does this mean I should develop a fiery temper? Am I allowed to wear pink? And most importantly – can I pass as Ginny Weasley and gain admittance to Hogwarts?
At least I certainly have the redhead complexion – my pale skin looks fantastic next to red locks!
Do you color your hair? Have you ever been surprised – pleasantly or otherwise – by a hair color or cut?
