am I having an identity crisis?


It is a tale as old as time, girl decides it is time for a bit of a change. Girl attempts to go super blonde. Girl ends up canary yellow.

Girl does hair dye walk of shame (you know the one, where you run to the shop with a hat on and prey no one sees you).

Several bottles of hair dye later, girl looks like this.

After swearing I would never go dark again here I am, taking myself by surprise every time I look in the mirror.  If I am being honest I think my hair alone looks good, unfortunately I just don’t think it suits me.

But I am going to go with it  anyway. As I’ve grown up I’ve learnt that people only see the image you project of yourself.  So I am pretending I am cool enough for this hair all the time wondering why I felt the need to change in the first place?

I guess one of the things I’ve been feeling recently is that I don’t always look like the person I think I am.

I’m not even entirely sure what that means. Maybe it is because I worry that I look older than I am or more sensible (boring) than I am. Maybe I am looking for clothes to give me something that I will ultimately find else where.

Who knows? All I know for now is that I have cool hair. It might not be my hair, but for now there is no harm in trying it on.

Live life & when all else fails, swag it out x

Ps. I’m definitely not cool enough to use the word swag, forgive me!

  1. Aww i like your new hair colour, I think it suits you. I have done many a hair dye walk of shame in my time! I once thought it would be a really good idea to bleach my hair. It wasn’t. It went kinda orange! I know what you mean about not always looking like the person think you are, I quite often feel like this. xx

    • Yeah that is exactly what happened to me! I was trying to go a pale white blonde and it was like some one had taken a highlighter pen to my head! I’m hoping the dark fades a bit otherwise I don’t totally hate it! Xx
