Going to the Dark Side

I've been ready to cut my hair for quite some time.  About the time I decided to cut my hair my sister got engaged.  I love long hair for formal occasions and thus decided to wait until after the wedding.  All that time I was just so over my long hair.  It had gotten so long it was getting stuck behind me when I would sit.  There was hair EVERYWHERE!  The shower was constantly getting plugged, I was getting tired of it.  But I held out until the wedding.  I also decided that I wanted to dye my hair dark brown with some purple or blue highlights.  I kept that a secret.  I got tired of people telling me not to color it.  Don't get me wrong I LOVE my natural color, but why shouldn't I get to have fun and dye my hair like the rest of the world just because I was blessed with an awesome natural color???  Ok well even with that logic I was still a little nervous so here's what I did.  I used a temporary color that just washes out after like 12 washes.  I got hair extensions in both blue and purple.  This way I get to have a little fun but don't have to worry about long lasting color. 


 The curly sexiness

Don't mind my messy bathroom

Man those were some long locks!

 A little crimped sass.

Don't mind the weird face I'm making here.


And you know what....I LOVE IT!!!!  It is so super fun!  I just have to play with the extensions and see if I can get them to behave a little better.  They seem to want to just stick straight out and not curl under nicely.  We'll see what I can do with those or if I have to abandon the blue/purple.

The dark looks good on you. Although, I am jealous of your natural color. My favorite hair color is natural red with blond highlights. I wish I could get the look, but trying to get it by dying usually doesn't work out well.

I loved your long hair (especially in the pictures where it was curly) but I have to say, I LOVE your new cut and color!! It looks so good on you! (Don't worry - if you ever go back your red is beautiful too:))

Wow your hair was SO long! I think you are right, a change is fun. I really like the cut, and the color, I guess I am bias, you pretty much have my hair now, except for the extensions. I give it a big thumbs up!

I love you with short and sassy hair, it fits your personality! Also, your hair grows like a weed, it will be long again in no time.
