Last week I went from being a platinum blonde to having this pretty melt. I hmmmed and hawwed about the decision for months and then finally, I was just ready. It took a whopping five hours, turns out a reverse melt is not something you can just bang out. I was feeling nervous about it but so many people loved it and so I felt better. I went to bed feeling like I had made such a good choice.
Then I woke up and went to school.
I felt like the change was pretty noticeable. I kept waiting for someone to say "Woah! You changed your hair!" But no, nothing. Then in my first period a kid said "Mrs. H, I think it's time to dye your hair. It looks all grown out." I started explaining "yeah, it's supposed to look like that" and not kidding, the look he gave me made me question my whole life and/or Pinterest.
Then one kid said "Did you dye your hair?" I said "Yes!" I was so excited that someone finally noticed. Then he gave me a look. It was like, tight sucked in lips with wide eyes. I was like "Ohh...shoot."
Then another period passed with no comments.
Then I had a kid say "Your hair looks exactly like Mrs. ________'s!!" Ok, um, Mrs._______ is literally 65 and her hair is gray as gray can be. I said "An old lady?????" and the student said "Yeah!" I just literally cannot anymore.
Anyway, the hair has been an..adjustment. I really like it most of the day, but then some days I will catch my reflection and i'm like "My face is so dark..." so I dunno. Change is harder for me than most people. So we'll keep on keepin on.
