I did not have more fun as a blonde. Flat out truth. Of course, it is a stereotype that blondes have more fun. But when I dyed my hair blonde I wanted to embody that stereotype for a bit. But it didn’t happen. Boo on me. It actually seemed to be associated with a certain wearing down of my being and body.
Thus, it is a new year and an old-school me. I’m going back to auburn. Can I turn that into a song and make millions off of that?
Anything goes these days in my book. Anyway, as the countdown began towards the new year, I mixed up the hair dye ingredients and went back to red hair. I think it suits me better.
With red hair, I feel more vibrant and jolly. It could be the mojito but I think it’s the color. We shall see in a month. But the blonde felt too brittle and too obvious. I need a more subtle vibrant hue. That is more my style.
I am looking at many changes this coming year. Name it and there is a change. Thus, on this first day of the year, I went for a first small(ish) change that does have some potential large-scale impact. Dying one’s hair may not seem that impactful to many. However, the research out there unequivocally finds that hair can impact self-esteem, social interactions, and the bounce in one’s step. Bad hair days are a real psychological phenomenom. With so many looming changes, it is nice to start off with a change that is quite under my control and is fun. Now, let’s let the good times roll.
