I have said this before, but I will say it again... I have a redheaded soul.
My mother is a redhead and although it kind of embarrassed me when I was a little girl (sorry, Mama), once I saw Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman in junior high, I knew - right then and there in that movie theater - that was the hair color for me. I have been every shade of red - from almost pink, to a hint of purple (my least favorite by far), to a deep reddish brown. Most of the time, I've always gone into the salon (or supermarket to buy boxed color) wanting the same thing - Lindsay Lohan's natural color, but have come out pretty disappointed. Maybe it's because there is such an array of shades in the red family, but I have come to believe it's mostly because people don't believe me when I say I want orange-ish hair.
So, I abandoned my true love of red hair and opted to explore. I have had a lot of fun being different shades of blonde and brown. Then there was the time I almost had black hair (not really a good look for me), but I think that was due to my then stylist's raging drug problem at the time. (If you're reading this, mister, and I doubt you are, sorry, but we both know it's true.)
Recently I decided (in no small part due to my huge trust for my current stylist, Megan) to return to my roots. Well, not really my roots, but you know what I mean. When she was done and unveiled the final result, I really couldn't believe my eyes. For once, it was EXACTLY what I wanted.
Since it was done last week, I've had an extra bounce in my step and twinkle in my eyes. Every time I look in the mirror, I'm delightedly surprised. Even Jenner, who is not the biggest fan of change, loves it. I think it just goes to show that something as silly as hair can start to turn things around for you.
Who would have thought that changing my hair to a color that was never mine to begin with, could make me feel more like myself?
New hair, new outlook. Bring it.
Oh, and the next time you're in Vegas, you really want to visit Globe Salon. I can guarantee they will not disappoint.
