"Beauty is about perception, not about make-up. I think the beginning of all beauty is knowing and liking oneself. You can't put on make-up, or dress yourself, or do you hair with any sort of fun or joy if you're doing it from a position of correction."
I've been pondering that age-old question...do blondes really have more fun? Did Marilyn live it up more than Audrey? Does Rosalie have less cares than Alice? Not only have I been pondering, I have been so tempted to take that step over to the..ahem...light side. Would changing my hair color change how I feel; change my perspective on life; or how others treat me?
Thankfully, websites like Instyle.com make it possible for one to take the virtual leap, before heading over to the salon, paying hundreds of dollars, then hating the outcome. It's as easy as uploading a picture of yourself making a few clicks, and voila! You can see yourself as a potential spunky blonde, a spicy ginger, or a mysterious raven-hair.
But that's just it.
Are blondes the life of the party?
Are red-heads sassy?
Are brunettes really dark and lovely?
What does our hair-story say about us?
I have naturally curly, medium-brown (I think) hair. I know that when I straighten my hair, I definitely look like a different person (no joke, its like my whole face changes) and I guess sometimes I do feel like a different person. Maybe a little more free
I have yet to trade my brunette tresses for blonde ones. But the curiosity is getting to me. I know that deep down my heart and soul and mind are what makes me me, but I can't help but wonder if transforming my hair could somehow, even in the smallest way, transform me.
I'm interested to hear your insights and experiences!
