That is right, I dyed my hair and no one noticed. For the first time in my life I grabbed a box of hair dye off the shelf at the drug store, came home, and followed the instructions. Thirty minutes later, I was done. I was shooting for Kate Middleton brunette but I think it ended up a bit darker than that. Here are my before and after pictures:
Immediately I thought the change was drastic. Home alone, I talked myself down and said it would be lighter when it was dry. That was incorrect, it was super dark. One week ago I died my hair and thought the whole word would notice, I was wrong. I guess big changes do not make a big difference – my friends both Friday and Saturday evening did not notice. I even brought it up to two of them and they said they did not see a change . Then at work this week even some of my coworkers, who see me everyday, did not notice a difference. Here I was, thinking this was I had made a drastic change in my appearance and no one noticed. But then again, you look at yourself much more than others do. Then I began thinking, my hair has changed a ton over the last nine years (I can go back further, but those pictures, ages 9-14, will not ever see the light of computer-screen blog land). My hair has gone from dark blonde to dirty blonde, to light brown and now all the way now to black-drown. Take a look at all of the shade that I have had over the past nine years transitioning to the darkest color I have ever sported:
I must admit, reverse Facebook stalking myself to find all of these pictures was a very interesting adventure. I learned from the process I wore a ton of things in high school I should not have and in college my friends really could have used some tagging discretion (I untagged at least a dozen photos in this process). Overall, my hair has really changed and in the progression, friends who have known me five or ten years and only see me once every few weeks may have not noticed a difference.
The bottom line: my hair is different and I love it!
