Namely, my hair.
Now, you may not have noticed, but I artificially lighten my light brown hair. If you scroll through my photos, you will notice that my natural hair color is a boring shade of brown. What I really prefer is a rich gold-ish blond color, but (as fellow high-lighters know all too well) every time you re-highlight your hair it gets lighter and lighter...and lighter.
Until you start to look like Christina Aguilera having a bad hair day.
Not that I'm saying that's necessarily a bad look...I'm just not sure I have the cheek bones to pull it off. And I'm also not a glamorous pop star, in case you needed reminding;)
So, usually I try to shove thoughts of my crispy, lightened hair out of my head. I figure that from a distance, I look like a pretty blond. Strangers (i.e. random guys in bars) usually guess that I'm German or Swedish because of my coloring. In fact, I'm composed of a swarthy mixture of Italian (Southern Italy), Greek, and Russian genes. But that is a whole other story, as my Grandma would say.
But today, my coworker wore a wig to work. It's a gorgeous redish/ brown curly wig and I just had to try it on. I always wondered what I would look like with red/ darker brown hair. Here I am:
By the way, with the red hair, don't I look kind of like Drew Barrymore in Riding in Cars With Boys, no?
Anyway, readers it's up to you--please help to solve one of the most crucial issues of the day--Katie's hair dilemma--by posting a comment saying which color you prefer. Or if you hate both options and have a different suggestion, feel free to post that too.
Have a great weekend everyone!
