At this point in our journey together I’m sure you know I am a natural redhead. I did, however recently color it a deep dark purplish-red. I have had a long love-hate relationship with my hair. As a really young child, I hated having it brushed, so much so that my parents threatened to chop it all off and give me a pixie cut. I called their bluff. That is where my love-hate relationship began. I hated the color of my hair until I hit about junior or senior year in high school when I Started to become a little bit more comfortable with my looks. I started to like who I was.

A few months ago, my roommate mentioned that my hair was getting darker underneath and was lighter in some areas. I began to really look at it. whether it was just my imagination, or my hair really was becoming two different shades, I didn’t like what I saw. I fell in love with the darker underneath shade. My confidence was gone, and I didn’t know how to get it back. I cut my hair last year, and about a month later regretted it.I never liked it short, but cutting it was my go-to when i needed a change.

Changes were coming

At first I wanted to color my hair a rose gold shade. After searching and debating I cut that idea out. I wanted to keep it a shade of red. My roommate, the amazing cosmetologist and friend that she is, told me all about the entire science behind coloring hair. Or at least the starts.

I feel more comfortable, confident, sassy, and all around more amazing with this darker color. Many of my coworkers have stated that the color matches my skin tone, that the hair now matches the inside. One of my favorite coworkers has now started to refer to me as “The Pheonix” because of the new Xmen preview. I have to say, I ’m, liking it.
