I'm going to the hairdresser tomorrow

I’m going to Retroella tomorrow to spruce up my middy. I’ll keep it longish, but I do need a trim. I’m also contemplating something else… I stopped dyeing my hair in the beginning of this year. I have dyed it a dark brown for the last ten years, or so, so it felt a bit odd to see my own lighter brown turn up again. It’s actually not as mousy as I remember it, but a rather nice bronzy colour. The ends are still darker, but it looks ok anyway. So I decided to keep my natural colour, it could be nice to have it around before it starts graying. Not that I’m graying just yet, but at my age you never know. After deciding that I quickly got bored with not playing with my haircolour (I think it’s addictive) and have been thinking of what I could do that would add some fun and be a suitable vintage solution. I came up with this:

Of course, I won't ever be as glamorous as Rita Hayworth!

I’m almost completely certain that I till bleach and not make it darker, mostly because I have never bleached my hair ever. It could be fun to be at least partially blonde.

Let's have two more, of the beautiful Ann Sothern:

I second Rosy's comment. You are brave and worthy of admiration. I can ooo and ahh over hairstyles I love but always wimp out when it comes to changing my look. Way to go! Can't wait to see how it all turns out.
