in which I go brunette

Monday, March 12

 Shoes: Jessica Simpson, Skit: UO, Belt: JCrew, Top: Old Navy, Fur: Cut from old vest, Watch: Gift
I've been dying my own hair this color since I was 15 years old. Rebelling against the dirty dishwater / old kitchen mop in your grandma's basement hair color that somehow evaded all of my genetically superior siblings. My hairstylist later corrected that notion and told me that I had what they call a very dark blonde. But somehow old kitchen mop just seems a little more fitting. I've always been a little reckless with it. Picking out colors at Walgreens and trying them out just to see. This once resulted in an unintentional Gothic moment during high school that you could say was less than flattering and a shameful moment in picture day history. But anyway. I've been this dark color a big chunk of my life right? I'm used to it. And then a while ago, I somehow morphed into a blonde. And for a very short, not necessarily committed two years, I stayed that way. So it surprised me as I went into the salon on Saturday morning {and was reminded by my stylist that I'm a natural blonde *barely*} that I, the reckless hair chameleon, experienced what I can only call "You're getting rid of your blonde?! But it's ... BLONDE" anxiety.
And then I smacked my blonde in the face and went brunette.

confession: i love you with darker hair better. not that you weren't absolutely stunning before but still. loving the dark hair!

Ana Sofia said...

Your hair looks gorgeous! It's not fair, you pull off every colour so well! Haha, you would probably even be able to rock the brightest of hair colours -pink, blue, even green! haha :)

I think you look great!!
And I am told by my husband that it is "harder" to be a pretty brunette...
Translation: when you're blonde people are distracted by the hair, but when you're brunette and STILL pretty, you're really really pretty!!

You look absolutely gorgeous as a brunette Sydney! It makes your blue eyes really stand out. I went through the same experience last Fall, and I've have received so many compliments regarding "the new me" I wish I had done it sooner. It's so much easier to maintain too! Welcome to the world of brunette lovelies! :-)

My hair is what I would call brown. Not black, but brown. I was shocked to have a colourist tell me that, No, I'm a dark blond too. Who knew?

welcome to the dark side!!!! brunette is the best! :) haha

Jamily Passarelli said...

I think you look gorgeous! Make your eyes pop like blonde hair doesn't. You should stay longer with this color, you really are more beautiful right now.

The Flynnigan's said...

Looks wonderful on you. You suit either or, to be honest. I don't colour my own hair given that it's strawberry blond and its tendancy to go wacky shades when dying it.

I did, however, have a wonderful moment back when I was 16 years old and doing trade shows and hair modelling... Had my hair bleached FIVE times just to try to get the orange/pink hue out of it. It was essentially straw by the end of the day, it was brutal. LOL

You look stunning sista!

Izzy Mason said...

Looks beautiful girly! Good choice!

you could be bald and be gorgeous. i like the brown.. i know the moment you speak of bc I have a hair identity crisis constantly going on!

D said...

looks really good. i call it "no color blonde" which is what i have too. i would love to go brunette like this but i look too pale.

Anonymous said...

You look gorgeous; you can pull off any shade! My hair is black; I used to do light brown highlights to the top layer for years, but just went dark again this year.

Jennifer said...

I love it. :)

Kelly said...

I looove it. I always prefer brown hair, but you are rocking it!

Amy said...

Girl ... this color is HOT! Keep it!

Jamie Lynn said...

Your hair makes me so happy! You look wonderful as a brunette. Besides, us brunettes do everything better you know :)

Stephanie said...

Im humbled, and think its kinda neat. If your in the neighborhood of checkin out other blogs (i too have kids - 2 boys in fact) cmon over.
