Colored my ash blond hair two shades lighter! Hah! I brought my copy of JJ and pleaded the stylist to please, please copy it. Nope, I didn’t take pictures of me at Bench Fix cos my hair was sticking out in all the wrong directions while being styled, and I don’t have any illusions of subjecting you to that undesirable sight.
I have a feeling that I am not really meant to a brunette. Call me crazy but I feel like I am braver and more careless (than I usually am) when I am blond. Forget about the old stereotyping that blondes are usually stupid — let’s say that are more carefree and reckless than your average level headed brunette. I am tired of being boring and plain, and September of last year, I finally had the courage to let go of my black hair and color it all the way through. Now, I got a feeling that I’ll be doing this coloring thing for the rest of my life. I simply can’t go back to black. I am having too much fun just being my blond self.
But then again, this is me. If you think I am making too much of a big deal about the change in my hair color, then that’s your opinion. But don’t you think that changing hair colors is like signifying a change–albeit physical–in you, that could for a time trigger a series of succession of changes in the way you decide and act as well?
Honestly, when I shifted hair color I became more embolden to kick the rules and follow my gut-feel. Things started looking good, and I became more confident and sure of myself. Somehow, the change in hairstyle signified the birth of a better person: Some examples include Rihanna,whose hairstyle went through so many reincarnations, at the same time that even her packaging as a singer was constantly changing. Even Mandy Moore, in one of her interviews, said that she preferred being brunette than being blonde.
And now that I am usually stressed and pissed off due to work and all that crap, I again decided to unleash my pent-up energies and frustration at my long-suffering tresses. I had it colored, cut and styled–went through the whole agony of a stinging sensation on my scalp as the color treatment was applied, determined to say goodbye to Me-Version 3.1
…but then again, we may deduce that this recent musings can also be caused by too much ammonia applied in my head. These are the after effects 🙂
