New Hair Color

 - by Playing with Polish

I have had blonde hair for more than a decade (I did when I was a kid too, but it got darker as I got older). Recently I decided it was time for a change. I wanted less maintenance (no roots!). Also since I am nearing the end of school (only three more classes!), I  wanted something “smart” looking for my planned reentry into the workforce. But did I really want to give up my golden hair? My beauty idol is Grace Kelly. I have always wanted a classic, elegant look like hers. Would I feel too plain with brown hair??? I wrestled with the decision for a while, and decided that I would give it a shot.

I frequently wear my hair in a ponytail, but I did not realize how often until I was looking for a “before” picture! In almost all of my pictures of myself I am wearing my hair up and you can’t really see it.

I love it! My new hair is so much shinier, and I think it really makes my eyes pop! :-D I am glad my stylist suggested that I keep doing highlights. It really gives the new darker color great dimension. What do you think? Have you undergone any major hair transformations?
