Prepare Yourself for Something Dreadful

I am very nervous to post this.

Let's remember 2 things when looking at these pictures 1. I am undoubtedly the least photogenic person on the planet. 2. These are self-taken timer shots, not the best quality.

I know. It looks like I am wearing a wig, right? It does. All-over color does that. I was told by my trusty hair-care professional, Robin, that it will calm down in the next few weeks. We will see. I had to go a shade darker to cover all my old blonde.

Pros: Love having a change. Love not fighting regrowth. Love not having to pay serious $$$ every 8 weeks. Love having my ponytail be all the same color.

Cons: Wig-like appearance. Will take some getting used to. Wondering if my children will recognize me. Not sure if I can pull this off.

Husband's response- and let's be honest, what opinion matters more than his?- "I fell in love with you as a brunette." (Although I was not nearly this dark, I might add.)

Give it to me straight people - I can take it- what say you?

Carie it looks amazing! It really does. And I've seen wig-ish and this is not it.

Okay. Seriously awesome. I am a fan of the dark hair, in general, and I think it makes your eyes look so pretty.

I heard in a beauty enrichment thing once that it takes your eyes 4 days to adjust to something new on your face, so I always give myself that much time before I make any kind of judgement.

Love the hair cut, too. We are kind of twins.

You look great! You really do! I love the new look! I don't think I've ever seen you this dark, it's so different and fun!!!
I new this was going to be exciting!
Now, maybe we'll look more like sisters?

Tera said...

I love, love, love it! I know you will love it too. I went back to my natural brunette a few years ago, and it was the best decision ever. So easy. So cute.

Kira said...

Love it! Dark hair makes people look younger and it makes your eyes pop!

Brooke said...

Ohhhh, I've been wanting to go that dark for a long, long time. Love it.

I was just thinking about that other day. Who else, besides a sister, would wonder if you ever wanted to go back to the "darker" look. I love it!
