I Have New Hair

I Have New HairWhen I was younger, nothing gave me more excitement than changing my hair.  One minute I was shaving one side bald and the next I was dying it black. And as an adult, nothing has changed.  My hair is still my greatest accessory.  Hair color can change my mood and my attitude almost as quickly as a new pair of shoes.  It’s truly a wonder I have any hair left considering how often I’ve dyed it, cut it, relaxed it, etc.

For a while now I’ve been trying to figure out what to do to make my hair different.  I’ve been some form of burgundy for a few months now and I desperately wanted a change.  I had tried putting a purple streak in my hair but it didn’t show up as well as I had hoped.  So my friend, Cheryl, a beautician, told me that she’d help me out.  So I made an appointment at her salon, Cheryl’s Touch, and had her add red streaks to my hair.  I decided against the purple because I thought it may be a little too much for me.  I’m so happy with my decision.  I love love love it!  I feel so bold and funky now.

What do you to change your look?  Do you cut your hair?  Dye it?  Experiment with makeup?
