Pink is a Good color for Valentine's Day, right?


I color my own hair(I'm sure you can see where this is going). I simply can't afford to pay eighty-five dollars every six weeks to have it done, and if I don't do it, then the gray in my hair shows. I can't have gray hair. Not at thirty six! So I color it myself. Usually I color it blonde, but a few shades lighter than my natural color. The only problem is I am outside so much that the sun lightens it very quickly and I end up looking like a Bleach blonde. Yuck. So I decided I wanted to go a little darker. The results were good. At first. After a couple months of darker blonde, I decided I wanted red hair. Yes, red. Like a light strwaberry blonde. So I bought the color I thought would look good and I colored it last night. Most of the people I work with noticed, and a few parents. Finally, my boss walks into the room and says "You look good with a little pink in your hair". What? Pink? I rush into the bathroom to look at my hair and realize she is right. Under the lights we have at work it looks pink! Great. My husband swears it is not pink. I'm still not sure. Here is a picture of it. Sorry the lighting is so bad. It might be hard to see the actual color with that lighting. I'm going to give it a couple of days and see if it calms down a little and if not, re-color.

The lighting is not that great, but it does look like a strawberry blonde to me. As a fellow red head by the box, I say KUDOS to your bravado in coloring your hair. Who says we need a salon?
I was grey in my early 20s, so the box came out and it has been a good friend ever since.

Fun with hair color! I think it looks good, even with the bad lighting.
