Ok, I’ve had more than a few glasses of wine and champagne on my birthday evening, but I wanted to post a couple of things.
First, I’ve officially bought my first home! A condo in North Hollywood, in the middle of a rapidly gentrifying area. Woo-hoo! They accepted my offer yesterday afternoon, just after I’d left the salon. They don’t have my check yet, but since they’ve accepted my offer, I’m contractually bound, so it’s all set!
And speaking of salons . . . here’s the new hair! Before, with no (or little) makeup, and no touchup in a while (so it’s pretty brassy) . . .
Eeeep! I’m freaked out and excited, all at the same time! 😀
Actually, the new color is really, REALLY close to my natural color – at least before I wash it! God only knows what it will look like after a couple of washings. The colorist told me straight up that because my hair was so blond, it will probably take 2 or 3 dark colorings before it really “takes.” And after that I’ll probably go just a LITTLE bit darker. But I like it. As odd as it sounds, the first thought I had when I looked in the mirror was, “Oh! I’m back!” Almost as though the other color had been the color of my fucked-up self, and the new color was me, back from exile. (Is it weird that the first thing I noticed was my eyebrows? That they were darker than my hair in the “before” pic, and that they’re lighter than my hair in the “after” pic? God, we always notice the smallest things about ourselves, don’t we?)
Yeah, I know it won’t be that easy. A girl can hope! 😉
There’ll be a new post coming later today/Monday; I’ve just had too much champagne to think about it now! 🙂
