Colour Me Confused

When I was a little girl, I was fairly different from the girls around me.

I was a bookworm, kind of quiet, and not pretty like the rest were. I was an easy target for other kids. Dreading leaving the house was not a happy existence, but I was always afraid.

Depending on what age I was, I dealt with it in different ways. At one point I came to terms with how things were, and also how I looked at the time, and promised myself that one day I'd be pretty. Somehow that would change everything.

I was convinced that all I had to do was be blonde. All the blonde girls around me were the prettiest, so I figured that must be the key. Misguided, but I was so sure of it.

Lo and behold, many years later, I became blonde. It just so happened to be around the time I stopped caring what others thought and carried myself a bit differently. And ever since then, I've always been some form of blonde.

And here's where this post gets especially girly and superficial.

For a long time I've thought about going dark. Really dark. But I'm stupid and scared, and if I hate it (or if the boy hates it), it'd be too hard to just change back.

That's right. I'm blogging about hair colour, and I'm dead serious.

So... I'm seeking assistance.

Do I stay blonde and stick to what I know, and am?

Or do I go dark and become something quite different?

I just don't know.

The only thing I'd be concerned with when dying your hair from blonde to red is getting it to be dark enough. But I think red would look great. You have a very pretty face that suits all kinds of hair colours, maybe even crazy blue/greens. Go for it!

I think you should get a consultation wherever it is you decide to go to see what the hairdresser has to say. Going in stages from blonde, to dark blonde, to darker blonde, then to brown might make it possible to go back the other way if you discover it's notcho' thang.

That being said, I think dark blonde or light brown would look lovely on you Kris.

Kris said...

Krista - Thanks :) I've thought about dark red, but that's even scarier! But blue? Now there's a possibility...;)

Chomperoooo- Kevan is my hairdresser actually, and he once said he won't let me go dark! Ha.
Thanks chicky, I appreciate the input.

You should stay blonde.

Kris said...

That's what I expected you to say, Masuka. Duly noted.

ghost said...

i think chomps has the right of it. experiment with some in betweens. those costume photos look good, though.

Kris said...

Merci, ghost.

I'm thinkin' about it.

Just try it.

If you don't like it, you can just go back. Its not a tattoo.

guess said...

Hey you. Its just hair.
No matter what colour it will never change what an amazing person you are.

Kris said...

Anonymous - No, it's not. But going that dark from this light and then trying to go back again will make my hair fall out.

"Guess" - Thanks for being so damn nice. As always.

I've never been blonde but I did spend a few years bleaching my hair to make it neon tomato red, and then when I wanted to go back to black well I'm still growing out the bleached hairs which at this stage are still kinda red brown looking.

I think you'd look really good with some chunky darklights, just so you don't have to go totally dark right away.

But if you do go darker take it in stages with a hair dresser.

Something something concluding sentence.

You're gorgeous not matter what, my love. If you want to go dark, I think you should do really suited you when you did it for halloween....and this isn't the first time I've told you that.

I don't think its your hair colour that makes you hot... its the rest of you.

Just make sure the carpet matches the drapes.

PatZ said...

how about one side blonde and one side black?

Kris said...

Shaz - Best concluding sentence ever!

GPC - Thanks, my lovely. Maybe I should just wear the wig from now on?

Anonymous - If that doesn't sound like a Masuka comment, I don't know what does.

Patz - You are wise.

Boy A said...

I think you're putting too much energy into worrying about things you really don't need to worry about.

Change er up!

Whats the worst thing that could happen?

Mike D. said...

Do I evern NEED to say that you're dropdead gorgeous either way? Come on now. It's the face and personality, not the hair.

I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you
could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

Maybe you could space it out better?
