Recently, I have been experiencing a hair crisis of sorts. I’ve mentioned it and it still isn’t settled… And then I saw the picture Sarcastic Mom took of me at our get-together last week and knew I had to do something about it rightthisveryminute.
The thing is, though I have no problem with changing the color of my hair (as evidenced by the waaayy too dark color of my hair in the aforementioned photo, and the plum hair I’ve mentioned having) hair styles are different. I’m a bit more chicken about doing anything drastic (though this wasn’t always the case either… much to the chagrin of my mama, during my high school years.)
So I got online over the weekend, found a site that allowed me to upload my photo and tried on some new dos. I could even change the hair color, add some highlights and lowlights and even makeup!
I started out on a serious mission. I knew what style I was trying to get to, but I did let myself get a bit distracted by a few others on the way to it.
This Sandra Bullock style was a pretty good first try. I even like the color and highlights that are already in it. But I know I would drive myself crazy with the sultry “hair over the eye” look. I’d still end up with it shoved behind my ear.
And then things just got downright silly:
I don’t think I could handle the pressure to pull this one off. Feathered hair is such a risk… plus, I’d have to rummage through my things and locate my old legwarmers and roller skates. Madonna is probably the only one who could remotely pull it off. And I laughed when I saw her with it.
aaaaaahhhhh – I finally got to what I set out out to find. love love love love love love it. with highlights (below) or not (above). This photo is going with me to the hairstylist. And I’m going to a real one too. Not my usual $6.99 job-y.
Watch out! Mama’s splurgin’!
