I have been blonde for my entire life. As a toddler I sported a lovely stringy, flyaway, white blonde do which evolved in a honey gold in my elemetary years eventually prograssing to a dirty mousy shade in highschool that I lightened artificially to various shades and hues of blonde as I deemed fit. There was one time a few years ago i bought a home dye kit and tried to dye my hair dark but it really just went more of a NASTY ORANGE. For the last few years I've been threatening to color my hair dark and even once made it all the way into the chair at the salon only to change my mind at the last moment and asked for blonde highlights once again. Then, on friday I said to meeself "Christy this week you are turning TWENTY SEVEN YEARS OLD! FACE IT! YOUR NATURAL HAIR COLOR DOES NOT RESEMBLE ANYTHING EVEN CLOSE TO BLONDE ANYMORE IT'S TIME TO ACCEPT REALITY AND GO BACK TO YOUR ROOTS!" so to speak. So i did. So far only one person has been honest and told me they don't like it. I like when people are honest about hair. Dustin told me it's the best thing i've ever done to my hair since he's known me. So really, as long as he thinks it's hot it don't matter what anyone else thinks. Although I'd still like to know what the masses feel. Well...? Am I a good brunette or do you prefer the blonde? Be honest. I won't be offended if you say you don't like it. i should have posted a before picture but my camera died just before I was leaving for the salon.
