My 1 month reward for starting this life change: On Lucille Ball's would be 100th birthday, I went Red.
I did it for many reasons. Mainly because it's strange living in a rather conservative community with purple, blue, and black hair. Portland, OR doesn't bat an eye at crayon colored hair. Not the same for Arizona. So I went with something a little more normal. But, also, it's to celebrate a new me. I'm fiery and I'm sassy and I'm determined to be reborn like the Phoenix that I am. So... RED! Makes sense.
John, my stylist (I call him the Hair Dr.) is a saint and needs to be wooted to the moon and back. He had quite the daunting task. I wish I'd taken photos. At one point, my hair was green, blonde, and very dark brown. Like a bad run in with a chemical pool!
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward."
