Well, I did it...

Miriam colored my hair over Christmas break - mostly blonde with blue bangs. I absolutely love it, but it's also driving me crazy at the same time. I have colored my hair a hundred times; I didn't expect to be surprised. But it turns out that blue hair requires a hundred times more maintenance than red hair did.

I have to wash the blue hair separately to keep it from bleeding into the blonde - and I haven't been super successful at that. Plus, the blue bleeds every time I wash it, even though it's been more than a week now since I had it done, and it has faded a lot faster than I expected it to. But I'm heading to my sister's house later this month, so maybe we can work out the kinks. I'd like to be able to keep it up until I get a job this fall.

As for the cut, fabulous!

As for the blonde, I don't recognize myself when I look in the mirror.

(Someday, I should put together a photo montage of all my haircuts and colors over the years. I have hair ADD.)


  1. I think your sister is great at what she does. I think the cut is so flattering. I didn't even realize your hair had gotten that long. When I studied in London, I once got my hair cut for free at some salon. (They taught people from other countries how to do different styles.) The girl next to me got something very similar to yours. Just a little blue tag of hair. Unfortunately, my hair didn't turn out nearly as cute as hers. I cried when I got home and had it recut the next day. No more free haircuts for me!

  2. I love the blonde. The blue is very adventurous! Impressed that you are brave enough to go for it.
