I'm finally getting my hair colored this afternoon. It's needed it since November, but I'm trying to be financially prudent -- that and I was curious as to how much grey I have. Now that I have my answer . . .
I need to figure out what exactly I want my hair to say this time around. My hairdresser specializes in hair that "drips with urban sex appeal" but I live in the suburbs and I'm somebody's mother. I need my hair to be an accurate representative of where I am in my life.
For instance, a couple years ago I asked for my hair to exclaim "Take me seriously, motherfucker!" and recently "I'm gorgeous and you will never have me so go suck on a watermelon."
That was a pretty cute hairdo.
This time I'm thinking something along the lines of transcendence: "I have walked through the fire and will sear your soul with a single glance."
I wonder what that would look like.
