Red


With this bright of hair....
There is no introduction needed




The first night I cried, and to say I cried is a major understatement. In all honesty, I had a melt down and couldn't sleep. I got up a million times during the night to go look in the mirror and see that my hair was indeed Flaming red. (creepy compulsive ..I know) The next day I shot a wedding and my clients didn't recognize me. It made me a little uneasy because every reaction I had got from friends and clients was ...WHOA . Then yesterday we were invited to dinner with my in laws and I wasn't wanting to go. I knew my hair wouldn't slide under the radar. In fact my brother in law shook my hand at dinner and introduced himself being funny :)
I started to feel like I had a flashing neon sign above my head.
But Finally today I woke up and really liked it.

We all know the rule, never make drastic hair changes if its emotionally driven or you haven't thought it through. I have been talking for the last year about going RED. So when I found myself after a long week with a free afternoon, I made a last minute appointment. I had very dark hair and never go far outside my comfort zone. So to get the red hair I wanted, I knew I would have to bleach the heck out of it....AND we did. 
7 hours later I was officially a red head. The plan is to lighten it again but my poor hair needed a break.     
Its VERY different and will be fun to play a new role.
 For the first time in my life I am not the brunette.
 Thankfully Steven doesn't like it, he loves it.
But enough talking about my hair..
