Actually, I didn't really need a change. In fact, if you read my last post, you probably know that between moving in with my boyfriend and going back to school to study something I'm hardly familiar with at all, I already have a lot going on.
But Monday afternoon, I took a long hard look at my grown out blonde highlights (and lowlights, because I tried to be brunette-ish earlier in the year, remember?) and thought to myself, "oi." Some days I loved my grown out look. I thought it made me look boho and careless in the best way. That is, until I looked at recent pictures of myself. Again, oi.
So Tuesday morning, I took the plunge. With my school schedule winding up, my work schedule will be winding down, thus I wanted to try a color that required a little less upkeep. To be honest, it's a little dark for me now, but I know my hair, and by this time next week it will probably be a whole shade lighter.
I'm still adjusting to the shock, and as weird as it sounds, I'm adjusting to how different I look in all my clothes. I wear a lot of black and charcoal gray, and personally, I just think blondes look better wearing certain colors (maybe I'm biased). I've also had to change up my make up routine, adding a little more bronzer and eyeliner to keep from looking washed out. Needless to say, it's been a work in progress, but I'm still loving it so far!

Have you dyed your hair a drastically different color than what you're used to? If so, what do you think your biggest adjustment was?
