Well, obviously the whim was a wig so there wasn't a lot of commitment. But still. It was fun. I walked around my work and caused a lot of double-takes and laughter. That's what I'm here for, folks!
I texted Matt and picture of the new and improved me. Apparently he was a fan.
...annnnd now he's very disappointed, I guess.
I've never been adventurous with hair color. Or hair in general, I guess. I've had a variety of hairstyles/cuts over the years, some edgier than others, but I've never done anything with color. Some really subtle highlights/lowlights a time or two. But never any all-over color and DEFINITELY never anything as bold as platinum blonde.
...unlike my sister, who is a fan of both platinum blonde and extremely edgy haircuts, obviously. This was in 2007.
Since my sister and I look very much alike I've sometimes contemplated going blonde. She pulls it off really well (including less extreme versions of blonde...not just the platinum thing)...maybe I could too? Who knows. It seems like a huge leap for someone with color-virgin hair. While I contemplate it, maybe I'll stick with wearing that sweet wig a few hours a day. I mean...a mohawk on top of long, luscious locks? Very realistic.
