So, I’m brunette! And I kinda want to go back to blonde as soon as humanely possible!
Yesterday after months of planning to, I went brunette. It’s not dark brown or anything super drastic but it’s still way darker than it was before, when I was blonde. I’ve been so up and down with how I feel about it. Initially, I was in love with it. I had been extremely glad that I did it and I was just happy with it on me. At the same time, I had a feeling of deflation. I felt down from the moment I got home afterwards but I put it to not being used to my hair colour. I thought that if I slept on it, I’d feel really happy with it in the morning but it got to today and I had no more love for it, nor was I glad that I did it any more. As it got later in the day, I now feel alright with it. I’m kinda inbetween, I like it and I’ll keep it for now but I definitely want to go blonde again soon, maybe in time for next Summer. I thought I’d do a little blog post on it incase you’re contemplating going for a drastic hair change and don’t know whether or not it’s a good idea.
I’d always look at photos of people who were brunettes and want to go dark but I never dared to, then over Summer I decided that, come October, I would do it. I knew the sort of colour I wanted, which is exactly the colour that I now have, and I was so excited to do it. I would’ve done it straightaway but since it was Summer, my blonde would show through and my brunette would fade quickly. So it’s not like this was a rushed decision, I knew for a few months before that I wanted to do it, which gave me enough time to be serious about it.
When I wanted to go brunette, part of it was because I wanted to be a sexy, brunette bombshell in the way that Emily Ratajkowski or Lily Aldridge is. I wanted to shy away from the connotations of being cute and childish with my blonde hair and go for something more edgy, in a way. I think that I subconsciously must’ve thought that, once my hair was brown, I’d look completely different in every aspect. My hair looks different, sure, but I don’t. I’ve gotten over that for now though, I may have shed (more than) a few tears earlier because I wanted to immediately be blonde again but I’m in the middle now. I like this and am happy with it but I want to go blonde again soon, just not as soon as I wanted to this morning.
So that’s how I feel about going brunette, my opinion on it keeps changing and I’m so indecisive about my feelings towards it so I’ve had a nice little rant but I hope that I may have helped anyone who is contemplating a big hair change!
