I was ready for a change. I have been a natural medium to dark brown since Emerson was born. In past lives, I had hair that was black, blonde, red, plum, pink. I’ve had highlights and chunky streaks of platinum, caramel, auburn, even purple and magenta. But as I got older I felt I needed to be more natural, and to be honest I kept my hair “normal” because I felt it was a good choice for the business of the blog. Well I got a bee in my bonnet and told my stylist Kathleen (who has been itching to do something fun on my hair for YEARS) she could get creative. I asked for a cool dark brown as the baase; she bleached highlights and put a cool dark brown on the rest, then covered the whole thing with a gorgeous blue. It just looks like a very dark brown or black-brown to most, but when I move or hit the light just so you see pops of sapphire. I don’t work in a conservative office environment so the only person putting a restriction on my hair was me. Why not have fun with it, the great thing about hair is if you don’t like it you can always fix it, cut it, or grow it out. Now I can’t wait for the next sunny day to show off my fun blue highlights!
