throwback: the hair experiment
Back in my sophomore year of college, I decided I was going to change things up a bit. Looking back, I have absolutely no idea why I chose to do this! I'm sure every blonde has imagined themselves as a brunette and vice versa. It was quite a shocking process, to say the least. I was every shade from blonde to brunette that you could get, including some red hues.
I loved having dark hair...for a while. It was a refreshing change, and mixed things up a bit. But, then the summer months began. I'm not a natural blonde, more of an ashy dark blonde, but the sun still brightens my hair. I was left with bright blonde streaks around my face, while the rest was black. It looked like I couldn't make up my mind.
I haven't been back to my brunette self since college. I've kept with the lighter shades. When I tell people that I had black hair, they usually can't believe it. I also get the 'do blondes really have more fun' line. I definitely had more fun as a brunette, but think I stand out more as a blonde.
How have you experimented with your locks?
