Guess what color my hair is?

If you're guessing brown, you're a little bit right. I mean, that's what it's supposed to be.

(This is the first color I ever dyed my hair. Aww, memories!)

When I turned 16, my Mom told me I could dye my hair (but nothing extreme). I was SO excited. My hair was brown, so of course I went and dyed it...Brown. Again. Not sure what I was thinking with that one.

But back to the question. What other color could it be?

You're probably thinking red, huh? Nope.

I've done it before, though. Once I dated a guy for 3 months before he realized I wasn't a red head. Which was really weird- I mean, I have black eyebrows. What red head has black eyebrows?

(This is the kit I used back in the day. And it turned out really pretty)

You might be thinking purple. I probably seem like the type who would rock that look. Turns out I am. Not rocking that look- but able to rock it.

The summer I graduated high school, I had light purple highlights. It was really pretty um, hardcore. My mother was understandably horrified. It was my first major rebellion.

(This stuff fades really fast. Just sayin')

But a few months later I went off to BYU, and my hair was dyed back to brown. Turns out purple is not an acceptable color for a BYU student.

So what about now?

Why blond, of course!

I know, some of you probably guessed that right off. Go you.

But most of you are shocked, huh?

I went in to my friend's salon, and told her to do whatever she wanted. She knew I was going on a cruise next week, and so she gave me a lighter, flirtier color to go with my soon-to-be-tan skin. Or, more realistically, my soon-to-be-burned-and-blistery skin.

I wasn't sure at first. I never am when I change the color. But Kurt loves it. I was blond when we first started dating, and only dyed it back to brown for the wedding because I felt like those pictures shouldn't be full of lies.


Dating (he married me for my teeth):




Yeah, I don't have a picture yet. How obnoxious is that?

Kurt is too busy with his finals to snap any. I've been planning this post for a few days, but I was waiting until I had this last picture to post it.

And then I gave up and decided to post it anyway.

So which color/style is your favorite?

I know, I know. You're hoping I'll go purple again. I think I'm gonna wait until my daughters are in highschool before I revive that look.

What's the point in rebelling if no one is horrified?

I like them both, personally. The style of the brown is better, I think, but YMMV.
Can't wait to see the new do though!

Love the "dating" one!! You look so happy!

the thrifty ba said...

i agree-'dating you'!

Goodness lady, I want to see a picture! After all those photo shoots you took yourself, you'd think you could provide your sister with one photo of your new hair!

I think you can rock any look! You could probably even pull off sea-foam green. Seriously. Try it. Also, I think it's a great idea for you to wait til you have teenagers to go purple again, they'll always want you to hang out with them and their friends then.

I just had a crazy week of changing hair color. You look great as a blonde and brunette.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Your so darn cute I don't think it matters what color it is. I do like you as a blonde!

Amanda said...

You are just adorable either way :)

I did the same thing- only not purple. I have dark hair and came home with bangs super blonde- well, white actually. Insane. It was "punk" (

I think I like the blond so far... but really, both look great on you.
