CHOOSING A HAIR COLOR

August 24, 2017

 The Before. You can tell my darker natural color is the top of my hair. 

 

 

Now, I don't think my hair was looking bad at all. But when Fatima from Broome Street Society suggested a possible collaboration, I JUMPED AT THE CHANCE. When a master stylist offers to play with your hair you say OK, WHEN?! 

 

I had old baylayage which had turned into a bit of an ombre (several months after the main pic up here, see pic below). I didn't mind it, but OMBRE IS OUT NOW, so I had a decision to make. One shade lighter? Or one shade darker. HAS TO BE SUBTLE. 

 

BUT HOW DO I CHOOSE?!

 

Online it said that darker would make me look more mysterious. I always used to go darker when I was younger, and sometimes this was true, especially one time I accidentally dyed my hair very dark brown which on me looked BLACK and all anyone could say about it was, WOW, IT'S SO.......................................................................................................................DRAMATIC.............

 

I was goth for a bit then... it's ok. I tried to scrub the color out but had to just watch it fade slowly like my spirits when I haven't had a snack for too long. But at the time, it went with my miserable classical pianist in school starving myself vibe. And it definitely made the red lipstick pop.

 

So I was playing with the idea of doing almost my natural color all over, maybe 1/2 a shade darker. Something like this:

 

 

She definitely looks super pretty, and mysterious. AND THOSE BROWS. I'm jealous. I kind of want to look like that. But stay focused Meara, think about how this color will look like in all the SHADES OF MEEWA throughout the year?

 

That's how I ended up making my final decision: It's August. What little beach time I've had this summer is soon going to be nil, and I have to pick something that's going to look good when I'm paler as well. 

 

The model above and I have a similar skin tone (when I cake on a pound of foundation to correct to redness etc) when I have a tan. But when I'm paler in the coming months? It MIGHT wash me out a little. 

 

So despite wanting to be mysterious. I brought in this picture (thanks for the cool hair album Pinterest!):

 

 Hey Sexy Pinterest girl! I wanna look like ya! 

 

Did I end up just picking the model who had eyebrows that were closer to mine? Maybe. But I think I made a good choice. I think she got the color SPOT ON BABY. She didn't even dye all of my hair, it was just baylayage highlights. How cool is that?

 

So all in all, I think I made the wise, responsible, sexy choice. What do you guys think?

 

 The after. Same shirt, baby.
