While my friend LJ and I were walking the other night, she sought out my advice on hair color. The girl is almost 27 and she's never put a drop of hair dye on her scalp. A true purist.
Extreme hair coloring can be a bit icky, but I think subtle modifications can look sophisticated, frame your face and make your features pop. At least that was my sales pitch to LJ.
I'm not a color purist. I don't want to cut my hair, so my only way to switch things up is through my color. I've dabbled in all socially-acceptable colors from blond to red to brown to the chocolaty color on top of my head now. In doing some research, I pulled some pictures from the past few years. My hair-color changes didn't seem so obvious at the time, but when you put all the pictures together, it's quite extreme. Don't you think?
I think blond — at least that blond — was a mistake. I'm starting to think the darker the better. Who knew hair color could make you feel so sassy? I'm going to tell that to LJ, too.
