Who has more fun?

Well, I did it... I decided to dye my hair. I figured it really wasn't really that big of a deal, although in some ways it seems like a big deal. You see, I am the only blond in a family of dark haired people. My blond has always set me apart and made me a little different, a little special maybe? So thinking about dying my hair brown was like giving up a defining difference in me. A security blanket. Part of my identity. But...I dyed my hair and I am still the same person.

I keep getting startled when I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, or when my hair blows in front of my eyes. It is strange to see brown instead of blond.

I love the new look! The pictures are so similar they almost look Photoshopped. Did you get the idea from wearing that hat at Dawn's party?

Yep!! That is when I first thougth it might look good to go brunette!

It has lightened up quite a bit... especially on top, it looks more reddish. I'll try to get some more pix posted. I broke my camera again. I am not having good luck with those things.

I just came across your blog. I really like it. I love the dark hair. I also have blond hair and in recent years have gone to light brown and like it better on me. It is a little less harsh.
