Myy 19 year old daughter just came home with.....
My 19-yr-old daughter went out a few hours ago...that's typical for her - she's always busy with school, friends, etc.
She just came home with BLUE hair. LOL Not the 'old lady' washed-out blue/grey tint....I'm talking BRIGHT, ROYAL BLUE. Full-head - not highlights or tips....the whole thing. LOL
She's been talking about doing it for a while now...she got an internship/job for the summer at a theatre and had been waiting to hear back from them about any 'appearahce policy' they might have (the theatre she worked at last summer would not allow unnatural-colored hair) -- she did tell DH and I that she got the 'go ahead' on any haircolor she wanted a few days ago....I guess that's all she was waiting for.
The color doesn't bother me at all...this is very much _her_. I'm the one who took her for her first set of highlights when she was 11.5 -- she got fire-engine-red thick stripes around her whole head that day. She's been restricted with her hair color choices for a while because of school and jobs. She's a 19-yr-old junior in college now...so she's old enough to make choices like this for herself - I'm not going to complain. She's a great kid - does well in school - works hard - and is even finishing her entire degree in 3 years of college (she started this past fall semester as a sophomore and will end this spring semester as a senior).
Should make for some interesting reactions from extended family though. LOL
