Dress Back

hair color update

So the burgundy underlayer of my hair has faded to...pink! More of a bright and dark pink or fuchsia. I'm not all that crazy about the burgundyish pink. I saw two women at Safeway yesterday with the same color.

I mentioned this in a previous post, there there is nothing special or unique about unnatural reds in your hair such as burgundy. Not only are a ton of goth gals doing it, but it's practically mainstream now. However, that has worked to my advantage. Remember that important meeting I had with the new state of the art gym in Bellevue that wants me to teach pole classes there? I did not feel unprofessional in the least when meeting with the investor, not even with bright burgundy bits of hair? Why? Because it is SO common now that it's just not out of the ordinary. You can still look professional even with a ridiculously unnatural red color in your hair.

I do miss the unique expressiveness of the teal hair. But it was too hard to maintain. I will try to combat the fuchsia though by looking at some alternative colors to use instead of the "blood red" that fades to fuchsia in a couple weeks.
