Your compliments almost make me want to go back to that style, but then I remember that “short” and “blond” requires upkeep. I can see myself now with dark roots down to here, shaggy bangs, uneven layers. . . it just isn’t pretty. Maybe in a few years, I’ll have the time to try that style again.
Predictably, after years of short and blond, I got bored and decided to try red. Oh, how I loved the red hair on the boxes of hair color.
Here is day one, in a semi-permanent burgundy color (the year is 1996; I will meet my beloved shortly after making the switch to red):
Here I am in more of a “Carrot Top” shade. . .and, no, that is not my hairy leg in the photo.
Here I am with disastrously short bangs. . .
Now before you tell me, “UGH! You should never have done red!”, you should know that the person writing this has red hair on her head. So, be kind. I do have a box of blond color in the bathroom, though, in case I need to make a change, pronto.
Next up. . .my hair at marriage and after the birth of each of my three children. Trust me, I should never, ever go “natural” with my hair.
