Hey y’all! I know the title of this post probably sounds like some cool charity event or something, but really it’s just the tag I’ve been using to talk about my new adventure—becoming a redhead! I’ve been a blonde all my life, and while I’ve had a few crazy colors streaked in (pink, purple, blue, but not at the same time), I’ve never had a desire to actually change my whole hair-color. Until Now!

As I’ve gotten older (and no longer work out in the sun for 8-12 hours a day), my hair has darkened to a kind of nondescript dark ash blonde. It’s not bad, it’s just not WOW like it was when it was really blonde. But dang it, I have a 20 month old at home and I’m still rockin’ the post-preggers bod, so I needed something to sass up my look! My stylist Michelle always loves when I come in, because she’s given me purple highlights, a bright blue underlayer, and now the red. She has fun with me. 😉 We have to do one more coat to make sure to get an even color, but you know what? I already LOVE it. It’s so fun being a redhead!

I snapped a couple of selfies that actually turned out really good, so they’re going to be my new Bio photos. Let me know what you think! *I promise I wasn’t trying to do some weird glamour shots pose, it was just really hard taking a selfie at that angle and that’s just where my hand landed. LOL

And just for funsies, I’ll show you some of my other hair adventures!

The light purple streaks never did show up on camera very well, but you can sort of see them here. Ignore the unintentional naughty librarian look.

I LOVED the blue, but because it's not really a natural hair color, it didn't stay very long.

Oh yeah, and then there was this little phase:

So yeah, this happened.

Yup, and this too. Gosh that was ages ago.

So yeah, I guess I’m a little hair-venturous! What’s the craziest thing you’ve done with your look? Love to hear it!
