Just got a hair cut

And I was needing it really bad. So, it was pretty long and I had her take about 5 inches off and frame around my face. It still is like almost to where my bra is on my back, so still mid to long length. Anyhow, I was telling the stylist that it feels like I am naked. I like it and it feels lighter. Then I said 'I will probably go home and nobody else will notice'. Sure as shit, nobody noticed. I finally asked DH last night if he liked it and he felt like a total turd for not noticing. I am thinking next time that happens I won't say a word, but the next day I will go back and get a color streak to see if they notice THAT.

What color do you think would get their attention and not be too goofy looking? My hair is a light brown color.

*please note I am early mid-life so nothing too radical or I will look like a fool.

  • You should use a clip-in extension, QM. yes, the 'fashion' color will wash out, but the hair is lightened/bleached FIRST, so the fun color will be truer. Once it fades, you're left with a swatch of bleached hair.

  • It's light brown. I wasn't going for any color that is naturally occuring, LOL. My mom said purple would be nice. I think I could get away with a purple streak, as long as it's a darker shade. And it washes out. That's a biggie!
