This is what happens when a hair stylist gets bored.
I had been thinking it has been a long time since I was blond. I also have some new products to play with so….
Probably won’t get asked if this is my real hair color. It only took bleach, high lift color and some toner to get it. Actually it only would have taken high lift to get it this color if I hadn’t decided to keep the bangs, I shaved them off last time so I decided to keep them this time. Considering the torture I put them through their in pretty good shape. I may cut them off later, but at least they didn’t turn into snot and fall off. Yes, I have done that before. To my own hair, not a clients. I’m always willing to test the limits on my head because as you can see I’m also willing to really cut all my hair off.
Actually cutting all my hair off is one of my favorite things to do. A) I’m extremely lazy and it is really easy to do in the mornings. B) I often color the crap out of my fine hair and toast it C) It feels so soft when it is short and D) I like looking like a lesbian and E) I love screwing with my clients, they never know what I’m going to look like.
This is kind of what my hair looked like before I got bored.
I actually prefer my hair darker. I know I’ll go back to something like this soon enough. But for now I’m blond again.
What is my natural color? Hell I don’t really know, I haven’t seen it in 20 years.
Actually that isn’t true. I saw it when I shaved it and before I dumped a bowl of tint on it. It was boring. I keep hoping it will turn white but it hasn’t yet or not enough to be cool looking. I am a dish water blond, that means my roots are this boring mousey brown until I spend time in the sun. And let’s get real I live in the PNW we don’t get much sun. This summer while the rest of the USA has been broiling we have had exactly one week of temps above 80 where I live. (Nehner-nehner-nehner! I love the cool weather.)
I’m already plotting my return to darker hair. I will keep it blond for a while. Heck I might even go platinum for a bit. I considered it this time but as I said I’m lazy and it is work to get it that blond. And I just wasn’t really feeling like doing the burn or blistering my scalp. Yes that happens or can if you try to go from colored dark hair to platinum blond in one sitting. I speak from experience, really it isn’t that bad but it takes forever. Women can grit it out and do it, men I have seen cry, wussies.
But for now it is blond and I look like a lesbian.
