Allow me to state the obvious: I have pink hair. I went in last Thursday for some fun new hair and I sure got it! I’m gonna be real honest, I’m not that comfortable with it. As someone who leans (maybe a little bit too much at times) on personal style as a coping mechanism, it has been a whole new experience rocking this bright ‘do. I just wasn’t able to imagine what it would look like before and now that I have it I feel like I have to be extra brave. It’s a good lesson for me in not taking myself too seriously, and handling unfulfilled expectations with grace and style. The truth is that as much as I love to make bold style choices I rarely step into anything that I haven’t thoroughly considered and already decided will work for me. Going this bold all at once was kind of a surprise, and while it might seem like “just hair” I really have had to consider whether or not I can be confident and authentic with a look that stretches me. John and I took last weekend’s glorious sunshine as an opportunity to walk through our neighborhood and snap some pics. You can really tell we are amateurs because we have no idea what to do with all this bright, direct sunlight. Shield your eyes!
