So it should come as no real surprise that I started to get a little bit twitchy and feeling like I was ready for something new.
After watching 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo', I had been thinking about going black again. But then I remember how freaking hard it is to go from black to blonde again and got over it pretty quickly. I have also considered my going red or copper but it is so hard to get a really good shade and it fades so fast.
Plus, I actually like having white hair now - I just want to do something a little different with it.
And then inspiration hit me when I was looking through some coffee-table fashion books - Daphne Guinness!!
I absolutely adore her.
In addition to being consistently dressed in gorgeous, high fashion, her hair is always coloured in some variation of white with black. So I thought, why don't I give it a try too?
It is a pretty out-there look and it can go either way. Here are a couple of other fab ladies who have managed to rock it:
Ok - so this is probably a wig but still v cool.
Remember when Rihanna had cute hair? Yeah it was a while ago - before the red perm. Anyway, towards the end of her cute hair run, she had it like this:
I asked the Husband if he thought it was a good idea. He said that it might look a bit like a skunk but that my hair always seems to look ok, so why not? (Clearly he forgot about the time I tried to dye my hair pale, icy blue and ended up looking like a turquoise smurf.)
But what I was truly worried about was looking more like Avril or Christina...
How the hell did Nicole let THAT happen?
Anyhoo, I bit the bullet and got my hair did last week. At first it looked a bit weird - a bit too emo. I was pretty sure that I had made a ha-uuuuuuuge mistake. I think you can see why.
I managed to get the hang of it throughout the week though and am now mightily pleased with how my new hair looks.
I think I will even keep it like this for a little while.
