So the other day (well, it has been more like two weeks now...) I FINALLY made it out to have my hair "did". Some of you that know me well, know that this is an almost impossible task even when the Farmer is home, let alone when he is out in the field. But, alas, we had a rain day and I was able to escape for two whole hours to have my hair done...and grab a Chai Latte, and visit a friend (OK, so I tend to take advantage - sue me!).
Anyway, I had my hair dyed this time. Usually I go for a touch of highlight and call it good, but recently the gray hair has been taking over and I am staging a war. So I went with what the stylist (I think that is what they call themselves these days) called my "Natural" color. Apparently I am a vampire in hiding. It was brown. But not just brown, brown on the verge of black! A little shocking at first, but I am getting used to it now. Now that it has washed out a little and lightened up. I have to say, I find it quite fetching. I like not having the blonde give way to dark roots, and even my gray hairs have seemed to subside a bit. I pair it with a heavy dark eye liner and some thigh-high black buckle up boots and I am good to go. OK - not really. Goth does not suit me.
So I thought I would take a picture to show all of you the new color. This was a little bit easier said then done, as I always have the baby on my hip, and apparently the camera would be great fun if he could just get his hands on it...So here I am, shooting around the back, evading small grasping hands, taking my own picture. Tell me what you think.
P.S. - please not that I DO NOT have six fingers on one hand - the beveling in the mirror only makes it appear as if I did. Thank you, and goodnight.
