Breezy Days: I Don't Need New Years Eve

I Don't Need New Years Eve

June 1, 2012
       
Another "first" that has happened recently, are my new highlights.
Before this last time at Suggestions Salon in Orem, I have never ever had any hair color touch my hair.
Not because I have some weird-o stance against hair color, it's mostly because no one will ever let me dye my hair because the natural color is pretty, or at least I think so.
Just for fun I would poke at any new hair stylist, and ask them how much I would have to bribe them to dye my natural color to a dark brown.
They would have a heart attack and say "absolutely not!!!"
Cheap entertainment :)

Growing up in Cali, my hair was BRIGHT blonde.
Obviously from being in the sun 24/7.
It was a symbol of the happiness, sun, warmth, and comfort I felt with being myself.
But after moving to Utah it just went blehhhh.
It started to darken, my shiny blonde hair wasn't there anymore.
The bright blonde that I felt was a part of me, was now gone.

I wanted to continue with my 'fresh start' that I promised myself would happen with this move and job, I felt that lightening my hair was a part of that.
I asked the girl to make it look like I had just come back from a California beach vacay.

I sat, ever so patiently, while my foils were working their magic.
She trimmed my hair, then started blowdrying...I was getting nervous.
What if I look like a platinum Barbie?
What if it totally fries my hair like a perm and I look like a poodle!?
Oh gosh...I'm getting sick.
She finishes and moves away from the mirror, and my jaw drops.
OMGOSH, why the heck have I not done this before?!
My hair was so bright, blonde, bouncy, & flowy.
I looked in the mirror with my new smile, and my new hair and just felt so happy & content in that particular moment.
This is my new start.
Top: H&M//Sweater: Kohls//Jeans: Fossil//Earrings: Forever 21//Purse: Steve Madden//Boots: Magic Step.

I feel a renewed sense of self.
Funny how little things like highlights or even a new haircut can do that for you.
I don't need a New Years party on January 1st to make resolutions, to make myself a new person, and to start over with a fresh new perspective on life.
I'm pushing the re-start button riggggggghhhhhhhtttt NOW.
