Almost there...

Thursday, August 07, 2003

Well, I finally lightened my hair last night with a great deal of help from Athena. My hair was darkened significantly for Dickens Fair last year, and unlike previous years, it didn't really wash out this year. It stayed very dark. So, we started to put some mild highlights in. The first round did almost nothing. So then we got more aggressive. Now my hair is a lot lighter, and oddly reminiscent of my original natural hair color, though actually still a bit lighter than that even. It's going to take some getting used to. Still, in the course of the bleaching process, we decided it was truly time to make this into the high school flashback that it was. We put on some Depeche Mode and gossiped about our boyfriends to make the experience complete.

I don't think Rick really likes the new look. I'm not 100% certain about it myself, but it's good enough for right now and it will make overlaying a new color easier next time when the grey starts poking through again. For now, I'm closer to blonde than I've ever been. It's very odd. Still, perhaps more odd is that absolutely no one at work even noticed. Well, or they didn't say anything.
