I Finally Did It...

I've been thinking about it for about a year. I've been talking about it for months. I have been curious. Wondered if it would work.

I finally took the plunge and went dark

before:


And after:


(my best "twelve year old 'tude" look;)


I know it is kind of hard to tell with the self portraits.

I was a tow head at birth and have been blonde ever since. So I have been wondering about a change. My natural hair color has gotten darker with my last two babies. It is still blonde but "dishwater" blonde. Who wants hair the color of dishwater? SO I decided to go a little darker than my natural color, with a less ashy tone. And I still have my highlights of course.

I kinda like it. It's growing on me. I've been needing a change but couldn't get myself to cut it short. In my head, the long hair takes the emphasis off of the double chin. Can't mess with that. When I lose the "baby weight" I may think about cutting it shorter. Until then, I will continue to change it up in different ways...

Thanks Callie!

It looks FANTASTIC!! I love it!
I went darker too. When I gain a little courage I'll post a picture. I am in a fat funk. Don't want to post pics of myself right now. I think I look like I have a triple chin now! Went shopping for maternity clothes last night and was so discouraged I went to sees and bought a piece of chocolate! Fortunatly I puked it so it won't contribute to the chins!
