Hair Colour Adventures – From My Fear List

For years I have wanted to do something fun with my hair. I always, always played it safe. Blonde to brunette and everywhere in between.
Well, I just picked up the phone and called my hairstyles and made the appointment to put purple streaks in my hair. I’m extremely nervous. I’ve wanted to do this for so long, but I always found a reason not to. I was getting married. I was a Mum. Someone else wedding. Too expensive (it’s really not). I will look dumb. Blah, blah blah.

Of course I’m thinking, “oh what will people think” but then I thought of a different way to look at it… what do I think when I see people with coloured streaks in there hair..
how fantastic. that looks amazing. i love it. i’m jealous. how brave.
I want someone to look at me and think, she’s not afraid of what people think at all. I’m learning not to be.
I sit down in the chair and start explaining to the hair dresser what I want done. I’ve been seeing her for years now and I trust and adore her. I had pictures of these extreme colours and styles. Now I had to keep in mind that I work in an office as well, so I couldn’t be looking like a circus clown.
We came up with an excellent solution to my wanting to still be professional and a little crazy and fun.
Change can be so exciting

Change is always a little scary, I find it even more scary when it’s to your appearance. It’s the first thing people notice about you. Sadly, it’s how you are judged with no words.

No turning back now... the dye has gone in!

Yes I am that person who forgot to take a day of before photos – I always forget the before photo.

It didn’t exactly turn out PURPLE. This photo doesn’t do it any justice. The underneath is a purple-ish red colour. I figure we’ll work up to something outrageous and crazy. But I do love it and it makes me feel very pretty, which has been a very rare occurrence in this pregnancy.
I stepped outside my bubble and loved the results. One thing off my fear list and I kicked ass at it!
What have your most challenging changes? Or have you ever ended up with a result you loved/hated?

One thought on “Hair Colour Adventures – From My Fear List

  1. Your hair looks very nice. I was always afraid to color or even cut my hair. One day after working on other fears in my life I decided to cut all of my hair off and donate it. My hair had never been shorter than just below my shoulders before that and now it was right next to my ears! I was in shock but loved it. The first time I put highlights in my hair I was so afraid because at the time they did not have temporary highlights and I kept thinking “Oh no what if I hate it or look silly!” The blonde turned out alright but I only did it once again after that with a burgundy red color and that was it. Coloring my hair all one shade is my next fear to overcome… Or a pixie cut. Yikes… Now you’re giving me ideas haha! Oh, and I clicked your banner 🙂 Have a great day.
