I do my hair myself and have been for quite some time. My grandmother was a hair dresser, and so was my aunt. And funny enough, my grandparents met in hair school! I've learned all of my hair techniques from my grandmother. From cutting and trimming, to bleaching and dying..
When I dyed my hair purple for the first time, I was not prepared for the amount of attention and comments it would receive. I'm actually a shy person when it comes to talking with people I don't know and being the center of attention in a group of people. I hate it to be quite honest.. But now I know it comes with the territory of having bright colored hair!
It's well known that I change my hair quite often. I've been thinking a lot about it, and decided to share the reasons why I change my hair as often as I do.
There are so many things in life that are out of our control. Hair is one thing I know I can control. For me, changing my hair is a way of showing myself that I'm not a complete bystander when it comes to life.
I always keep the mindset that "hair grows back". (Maybe not as fast as we'd sometimes like) Meaning if my hair reaches a point of looking bad, I remember it's only temporary. That helps lessen most fears I have when it comes to a hair change.
Of course, I change my hair because I love to. It gives me confidence, and it's a super fun way of expressing myself. Just like fashion and blogging is for me.
On real note though, I'm starting to miss my brown hair. (So much for a New Years' resolution of keeping it purple all year)
