I’ve had basically the same haircut my whole life. I’m not one for products or for spending quality time with the blow dryer, so my style is pretty much what my hair does naturally. But I do like to experiment with color.
My hair has been just about every shade the drugstore has to offer, as well as highlighted, low-lighted, and even something called “glossed.” Most of the time, I’ll default to some shade of blond, like the photo on the left.
But recently, I decided to do something daring: go back to my natural color. Granted, I’d been dying my hair so long I didn’t know what natural was anymore, but why should that stop me?
I went to the salon, threw around words like “chocolate” and “coffee” (two things on my mind all the time anyway) and came out with hair I hadn’t seen since grammar school.
And the funny thing was, for some reason I felt like I looked more exotic, more drastically different than I’d ever looked when I didn’t have my God-given hue. So I’m sticking with it (for the time-being, at least), and in honor of Fresh New You Week, I’m challenging all of you to try something bold — even if for you bold means doing something completely natural.
