PURPLE HAIR

A few weeks ago I posted THIS post about why I was planning to dye my hair purple, and why it was all my therapist’s fault.

Some of you said you wanted a picture of the final product, so here it is!

I’m really happy with it.  My father-in-law hates it (which surprised no one).  My husband loves it (yay!).  Everyone else has been varying shades of in the middle.  It’s a really fun twist for summer, and it’s allowed me to feel a new level of confidence: “Yes, I know this is crazy, but I’m kind of crazy.  I’m rolling with it, and I LIKE IT.  I don’t care if you do or not.”

I haven’t felt that way a lot in my life.  It feels good.  Maybe I’ll never go back to blonde.

Ha ha.  That was a fun thought for a second.  My school would freak.  Oh, well.  September is a long way away.  Purple stays for summer; confidence hopefully stays after the summer ends.  🙂

  1. I’ve been thinking about you and your purple hair and hoping you’d actually do it. It’s great! (p.s. you are also making me miss my long hair, I cut it all off 2 months ago.)

  2. Gorgeous!
    I have a bunch of friends who are teachers, and I’m constantly shocked by how much they worry about “the rules” (unwritten) and what people might think. I hate it for them–and you–that their lives are subject to hot gossip and rumor. It’s like being rock stars without any of the perks.
