Who says blondes have more fun??

Well, here is my new look!

I've always wanted to do this just to see what it would be like. It's not bad! I am still getting used to it. The stylist advised me to go a shade or 2 darker than I really want, because it is going to fade over the next few weeks. We'll see about that!

Elise's reaction was pretty funny. She asked me why I have black hair, and where is my yellow hair?? She's asked me at least 100 times why I don't have yellow hair. Then she asked me to change it back.

Jamie isn't crazy about it either. He loves blondes...but he said he will adjust.

Sometimes you just need a change, you know? And it's only hair. It can be dyed back later. For now, I am going to keep it, because I kind of like it. I feel like a different version of myself. It's fun!

well, I LOVE IT! you look so dramatic and it really makes your eyes pop. But this is coming from a life long brunette, so you know I adore dark hair. :) It looks GREAT!

Thanks, Catie. I am still shocked every time I look in the mirror!

It really makes your eyes stand out more! Although Im only used to seeing you with blonde hair, I actually really think it looks good! I def. know what you mean about needing a change here and there and its always fun to do something "dramatic." Looks good Mel! :)

P.s.-Did you cut your hair? Its hard to tell in the pic but it almost looks shorter. Or that could just be your layers?

I think it's cute too!

I didn't cut it...just the color. I'm sure it will be blonde again eventually. I'm thinking of adding some blonde highlights next time, and after a few visits of doing that, it will be lighter again. I'm not sure if I'm that crazy about it, but it's only hair! It grows back and can be dyed again. :)
