Red-headed Braveheart


I finally took the plunge last Saturday and dyed my hair red. The first thing I noticed- was the word RED. It has over a million interpretations/ variations. Apparently I got it wrong the first 2 times. I had my hair processed once, and then "brightened" and ended with this color. My hair is more "red" then these actual pictures lead on. I really want more of a blonder orange. I am hoping the red will fade a bit to a lighter orange, and if not, its back to the salon.  

Regardless, the change was a bigger deal then I expected. It's such a bizarre thing to try and get dressed when your hair all of a sudden matches nothing you own. I am tempted to throw out everything and start over with a cream based pallet. After realizing that that was dumb I decided not to buy (or throw out/give away) anything until I get this color down. I'm just impatient, like a lot of other girls, because my hair is a security blanket. It's also really weird to look in the mirror and consistently do a double take. I woke up Sunday morning, completely forgetting what I'd done and literally gave myself a shock!

I also wanted to take a second to gush about this new Swedish photographer I found: Annette Pehrsson. Please, please, please check her out. I can't get enough! Her photos are so dreamy they  make me want to take a permanent vacation there.

Your hair looks great. It really suits you. My hair has been red for two years now and I love it! I love the deep red it is when I first get it done and the more faded orange blonde colour it goes after a few washes. When I first got it done it was so hard to get dressed and there were many colours I wouldn't wear but now I wear pretty much anything and actually quite like the clash! The same goes for lipstick colour. X

Aw Thanks RuBee! It's good to know I'm not the only one who's had trouble figuring out what to wear after dying my hair! Congrats on getting married!!!
