Hair Dilemma

Monday, August 12, 2013

Today I am off to spend some quality time with a good friend...aka get my hair done by my bff. Here is how we usually go...
ME: "I wanna do something different."
BFF: "ok"
ME: "But I have commitment issues and never wanna cut my hair or dye it too far from my natural color."
BFF: "ok, so highights again with a trim?"
ME: "yup"

Gah! Why can I not be bold and daring and FUN! Because I have hair issues. I've cut it real short before and regretted it, so that's off the table. I refuse to dye it dark for fear that I won't look like myself and be (gasp!) ugly. AND what if Blair doesn't recognize me!? That would be awful. So here I am contemplating getting bangs again. I liked having them but hated growing them out.

and another bang young are we here?! 24 years to be exact...
 So, I realize I really should have thrown these questions out much earlier since my hair appointment is today but here is the color I'm considering...

I know, I know, it's really not that different from what I currently have but it is a change for me! Minus the cut (heaven forbid I do that!) and the ombre (I'm afraid it's going out...) I really like the color on top...which is probably my natural color and I would love to pull some of the bright blonde through it as highlights. I think it's going to be great for fall/winter and maybe more low maintenance since it's less blonde. Sigh. Stay tuned tomorrow to see if I mustered up some courage to do it! 

***just talked to hubby about my options. of course his vote is to "keep it how it is." Dilemma is in full effect. :)


  1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your bangs in the pic when you were 24. lol. super cute. now i may have to get bangs! I think you should keep your color and add bangs.

  2. Love the bangs and love it short! Go for it, it grows back.

  3. I feel you! My hair is my security blanket and I always hate when I do something drastic! I like you with sideswept bangs!

  4. Ha-ha I hear ya girl! Your hair is pretty fab how it is but it's always fun to switch it up a bit :) I'm pretty sure every husband likes us just the way we are, whenever I ask my husband if I should curl my hair or straighten it, it's always the same response...straight like usual! ;)
