Red for Autumn

As I have mentioned, I've decided to go Red for Autumn. In case some of you are having trouble imagining what I will look like, here are a few visual aids:

Headshot 1, StickSteven Edition:

Hm... That's not really all that helpful, is it?

How about this:

HeadShots 2&3, Blond and No Longer Blond Edition:

Better, no?

Most of you probably do not know this, but I was born with very red hair - not the CarrotTop shockingly vibrant red, but a less in-your-face strawberry blond red. Everyone loved it.

As I got older, my hair darkened, losing nearly all of its redness until my natural color became a dark blond. Yet, if I spent long periods of time in the sun, red highlights would appear.

However, working full-time put a serious dent in my ability to spend long periods of time in the sun. Very sad. I liked having red hair. I dyed it red once (maybe 3 or 4 years ago), but I think it was too dark. This time I want something a bit lighter. We'll see how it goes.

The great thing about hair is that no matter how bad the cut, style, or color, it (usually) grows out.


  1. Because you are worth it.

  2. i remember when you had your hair red. it looked really nice on you. in solidarity with your red for fall theme i bought red pants for the fall.

  3. Can't wait to see how it looks.

  4. Red for Autumn is BRILLIANT. Like I said, I'm thinking of doing it myself. If I'm gonna be single I might as well be sassy.
