At first it was fun. Suddenly, I got more attention for the men. Even though I'm happily engaged, it was nice to be complimented and gave my man an ego boost. People presumed I was a party animal and I was invited out a lot more. However, the stigma of being a blonde used to get to me. Like a skinny person being called anorexic just because she's naturally slim, I was being called 'dumb' just for being blonde. I then started missing my brunette sex appeal and now I've decided to go back.
I decided to write this post 'Memoirs of a blonde' because it represents how a hair colour change affect your personality. Blonde brought out a new side of me. An outgoing, unreserved persona that I will take with me on my journey of being brunette. I also got to weigh up the old saying: 'blondes have more fun'. Blondes do get recognised easily. When I'm walking down the streets, people often notice my bright hair. However, I love the classy looking brunette. Audrey Hepburn and Dita Von Teese are my style icons and as much as I loved going through my Marilyn Monroe moments, I longed for voluminous dark tresses.
Tomorrow morning will bring out another side of me. The brunette I've wanted to be for quite awhile. I've loved being blonde, but my hair is so damaged that it lacks shine and is becoming rather dull. So it's bye bye to the blonde and hello to brunette.
Does your hair colour define aspects of your personality?
