Before (copper) and After (brunette). I had to think about it a lot, but I'm saying goodbye to my redhead phase. 🦋
It helped me this past year. I wore it like a superhero cape and felt bold and bright, but also as a fascade.🧡
I've been craving going back to brunette. Some might think it's just hair, but I had some major feelings attached to having dark hair, including pain, resentment, and also estrangement. I felt when I decided that one morning almost exactly a year ago to quit alcohol, I felt like I didn't know who I was looking at in the mirror. I have been working so hard every day to #rediscover
myself. I still have a ways to go, but I can say to my #reflection
, "I look like me" and feel it in my soul. I wasn't expecting to, but I embarrassed myself a bit in the salon with tears in my eyes 😢 and my heart was pounding.
Thank you sooooo much @teresa_ladner
for taking me for a redo 2 days later after making it so beautiful to begin. 🦋
In the words of the ever relevant @LadyGaga
I've had enough. This is my prayer. That I'll die living just as free as my hair... I just wanna be me.
I am my hair... 🦋💎🦋💎🦋💎
