For years I would change up my hairstyle every single time that I went to the hair salon. I would go blonder in the summer and darker during the fall. I was obsessed with finding the next great hairstyle and going with it. I have had some real winners and some ridiculous losers. My hair has ranged from fuschia to orangey blond.
Lately I have been trying to stick with the same hairstyle (growing it out) and going a tad bit darker but not too much. I have been happy with my hair so far, but then one day I saw Britney Spears on X Factor and I fell in love with her hair. Mainly, her bangs.
I laughed at myself and thought… Really? I want to emulate something about Britney Spears? (Maybe next year you will find me with my head shaved, beating cars up with an umbrella.)
But, yes. Yes I did. I started coveting her bangs. It was all that I thought about. I actually considered cutting my own bangs, but I have had more failures than successes when I have done that. I knew better and the fact that I had a hair appointment coming up, I had to wait.
So, I told my hairdresser what I wanted and she agreed that I could pull it off. I felt like a new person. A different person, and Paige kept yelling, “You are not my mom!” Thank God we weren’t going out in public places. I tried to explain to her that it wasn’t the best thing to say in public, but she thought it was hilarious.
One of my friends called me a “hair tease” because I wouldn’t post a picture of the full hair. I couldn’t just post it out there without writing about it first! My hairdresser even asked if I had this all planned out to write about on the blog. Of course! How else would I show my new look!?
For a comparison, here is what I looked like before the change. This was last weekend when I got all fancied up and curled my hair for a wedding.
