Blondie is Brownie

I don't know if I'm allowed to be the Blonde Blogshell anymore. I went to the hairdresser yesterday to basically touch up my blonde highlights and walked out a brunette. A deep dark chocolate brunette. I was quiet the entire time the dye was being applied. My stomach was a knot, but I kept reminding myself it's just hair colour.
I will never touch my length ever again and I've been a little bored of my blonde...and yet...I've never been brave enough.
I bit the bullet and did it. I mean it's not like I'm going all Britney Spears and shaving my head or chopping the lot off... it's just brunette.
I sobbed. Oh did I cry. I cried when I tried so hard not to. I had my hairdresser looking at me, his assistant and the other patrons all looking at me, while my lip quivered, the lump in my throat rose and my eyes watered. Eventually my face just crumpled and I ended up crying! It was such a shock to see and it's not that I don't like it, I just have to get used to it. I'm so used to seeing light blonde hair around my face...for 25 years...that seeing dark was...WEIRD!!

I really have to get used to it.

Don't have much to blog at the moment... no real news... but hey... here's my rivetting post!!

Love Brownie

PS> I'm finally going to find out: Do Blondes really have more fun??

Congrats, it takes a lot of courage to go brunette. I have three white blonde sisters and two have dabbled with brunette. It made a great change, and they did return to blonde relatively easily.
Also, it gave their hair a break from the highlights and when they returned to blonde their hair was alot healthier.

Good for you for being brave and making the change.

congrats on the brunette thing!! I'm sure you'll grow to love it. Its always good to do something new for a change. I'm contemplating cutting my long hair much shorter - but we'll see. I know what it is like to just want a change !

blondes with big boobs have more fun.

lol.

i've dyed my hair red once. just for the change. it took four years for me to get the colour out, trying to dye over it was such a hassle. eventually i just cut my nearly-waist-length hair to just below my ears to get rid of the last stubborn bits of red.

good luck....hope you start to like your colour more!

Being Brazen - you're right...totally right, but just in case the universe does favour certain hair colours, I'm going to get to find out! Woohoo!

Thanks for reading
