this was on the balcony in Sweden - I'm wearing a summer dress I bought there, plus my new overknee socks. Sadly, you can't tell they're overknee
Every once in a while, I get this sort of itch. It's an itch that says: I should change my hair. This happens about once every six months, and most times, it means that I'm about to dye it a different color. It started out with me going from dirty blonde to light brown, at fourteen. Not a major change, but it was at the time. The change felt so good that I started dyeing or changing my hair every once in a while, but now my hair has been the same long, blond mess for way too long - I haven't been to a hairdresser for nearly a year, and it's starting to show in my very dry ends. Furthermore, due to lack of sun, the light parts are now growing out like mad and dark roots aren't a very chique look. The problem is that by now, my hair has been nearly every color possible with my skin tone (and a few shades that didn't quite match my skin), so I don't quite know where to go next. Here is what my hair looked like in brown and red:
And here's how it looks right as I'm typing this: (I look a bit looney-eyed, but okay)
Note: this is the best it ever looks. Normally, it looks worse - less volume, limp, and sort of boring. I just took it out of a ponytail, so it has some volume, but normally it's a lot flatter.
So, I was interested to know: what do you think I should do? Keeping it exactly as it is might be difficult, because of the dark outgrowth and the very dry ends, so I'll have to cut off a bit anyway. I also think it's starting to look a bit ordinary, maybe - there are so many girls with this type of long blonde hair. But should I cut off a big piece, or just a bit? Dye it brown, or my natural colour, or red, or reddish brown, or make it blonder? Change my entire hairstyle - like, cut it down to shoulder-length, or maybe cut a fringe? I'd love to hear all your thoughts on this, because I'm quite lost!
