Welp, I got the itch…

Okay, so you know how I mentioned on Monday that the next time I got the itch to do something different with my hair, I might go blonde.

Weeeeelll…

The idea just kept, ahem, growing on me, and when I texted my hairstylist on a whim, and she had a cancellation, I took it as a sign.

2 hours + I’m pretty sure like a gallon of bleach later…I’m a BLONDE! (I think those caps are deserved; it’s really bright….and quite a bit brassier than I was expecting, but Hollie said that can happen when you go from really dark to really light and that we can do something to fix it if it doesn’t calm down on its own…I believe she said something about toners?).

I honestly don’t know what I think about it yet. It feels (and looks) a little bit like straw, and I definitely feel like it’s going to be a bit before I can style it like I’m used to. BUT. It’s something different.

And sometimes, that’s really all you need. Ya feel me?

More pics to come when I feel a little more “me” again.

I just thought I’d let you know that I got a “wild hair” (there she goes again with the puns) or 100,000.

So, what do you think? Worth the risk? Too much? Be gentle, please! :)

Like what you read? Like M is for Mama on facebook (pretty please?):

  1. Mama, always said, “If you don’t have something nice to say …”. I felt for it for a minute and was just going to keep my comments to myself. I’m really glad you posted this on April Fool’s Day. I love your dark hair. Or at least something that more closely matches your eyebrows. ;)

  2. Haha! I checked the date you posted this and I knew! April Fools! I didn’t get any good pranks in, but this is a good one :)

  3. I’m guessing this is a joke for April Fool’s?!?
    But if it isn’t I have to say that I prefer your darker hair colour as it makes your gorgeous eyes pop! ;)

  4. While I think you would look beautiful with any color hair, I love your natural hair color. This light of blonde would make you look a little washed out. If you do decide to go blonde, maybe just highlights to start out with?

  5. well, you got me…I believed you and was totally getting ready to tell you that your natural hair is beyond beautiful!!! never change it :)

I love comments so much I'd actually consider making them my seventh kid if I could. Seriously. Love. And I read every single one and will do my darndest to respond, especially if you have a question. So, yeah. Comment away! I'm listening!
