I have been dyeing my hair since I was 15. I have experimented with a variety of colors over the years, including blond, light brown, dark brown, red and even an interesting shade of purple. I am in desperate need of a dye job at the moment. I have an inch of brown roots and, amidst the murky shade that is my natural color, many silver strands. Also, my reddish-brownish-auburnish L’oreal color (because I’m worth it) is fading thanks to summer sunshine and daily washing/conditioning.
Why do I mention this? Because I refuse to dye my hair until I get a haircut. The last real haircut I had was in April 2002. Since then, I’ve given myself a couple of trims and let Sheri chop off a few inches last Thanksgiving. I figure when I get tired of the brown and silver roots (for the record, I’m only 37, but I found my first gray hair when I was 21) I will make an appointment. Until then… I’m looking pretty shaggy.
But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself:
