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 also had highlights and nice 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 base; 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. I thought, 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!
