I’m kiiiiinda freakin’ out here.

And I need someone to pat me on the back, give me a hug, and tell me it’s all gonna be okay.

I’ve been blonde for 32 years, 125 days, and this morning.

Then this afternoon I let Tilly do what she has been warning me she would do for months. I let her turn me into a brunette.


I’m kiiiiinda freakin’ out here.

Oh, did I already say that?

Well, I am.

After she shampooed the dye out, I walked around the corner, in front of a mirror, and I literally screlped (scream yelped). It was more than just a little different. I was a whole different person.


As I sat hyperventilating, she promised me I’d get used to it, and love it, and want to go even darker on the next round. Lowlights she called them. Haha.

So, what do you think of the change? And which of these three pictures do you think would be best for a FB profile picture?

Oh, and yeah. Dyed the beard and eyebrows too. As it turns out, a blonde beard just doesn’t look all that great with dark hair.

Oh, and am I normal to freak out over a hair color change? I feel like I’m having an identity crisis. Any of you ever do that?
