I was flipping through one of my magazines the other day when an advertisement caught my eye, “What’s your haircolor personality?”, an ad for haircolor. I laughed a little to myself and then replied to the magazine, “confused”… or maybe, “bored”, and then I looked at my reflection and then said to myself, “split personality”. Yes, it was the last one. I have a bit of a dual personality with my hair. In person I like to be a brunette. But in photos I prefer blonde. If you could see me now, I have a bit of both…I finally jumped on the ombre hair wagon (a bit late and some would say the trend is over but I’m not over it so I’m still going to give it a go).
Anyway, so how can hair have a split personality? Okay, so I know its not my hair that has the split personality…however with a different haircolor you may act a little or at least feel a little different. For me, when I have darker hair,my dark and morbid side seems to come out a bit more. When I am blonde I feel I look a bit younger and I think a bit of naivetee comes out more. But then I envy those people who rock the same look…or at least don’t feel the need to change what they have. Whether it’s their signature look or they just like their own natural color, I wish I could keep my personalities to one and just rock one look…how much easier life would be. And of course I think my hair would be happier with me too.
As my hair is now, I’d say its a healthy combination of brunette with a touch of blonde (and a little bit of grey coming from the roots). However, I’m going to be doing another round of haircolor on Saturday. Still keeping the ombre look, just a bit more dramatic. What would my hair therapist say?
I’d love to show you a photo of my hair now, but my computer crashed and I’m writing this post from my phone (yep, I’m that committed). However, once I finish my hair I’ll upload some photos from my phone so you can make your own judgements on my haircolor personality(ies).
Do you like to change your look…often? What do you think your haircolor personality is?
