(This is a causery, is that what it's called? Dette er et kåseri.)
My skintone is mixed! I look equally attractive in both warm and cold colors. The haircolor that suits me best is therefore... Purple, because you get purple by mixing red and blue. My choice has therefore been made. A dark, cold blonde with light lavender tones floating around in it. If you've been following me from the start, you've already seen me with a rather even shade of lavender blonde hair. To be honest, I've never had any haircolour that's made me feel more comfortable, but I don't want it to be an even color this time. I want the dark blonde to be all mixed up in it and I want my hair to be long this time... Some day...
The good thing about this idea is that the purple part of the plan doesn't have to be that complicated at all. I can just get that same lavender wash-out color by Björn Axén for 10$ and if I get any modelling jobs, I won't have to worry about my hair. I'll just wash out the color in advance and show up as a dark blonde. It doesn't damage the hair at all and one tiny box will last me for months and months on end. I'm going to try to get balayage done at Gevir, because it's supposed to be the best place in town. Also because I checked their pricelist and it's not even more expensive than any of the other places, so whyever not? It's my hair. I'm done with second best!
I never actually decided to not be a blonde anymore, I simply couldn't afford to go to the hairdresser to update my highlights and now my roots have grown out so much and I've been cutting it regularely at... Cutters. Now it's winter and looking at the photos from my latest trip to Geilo, I look more like a brunette than ever. Enough is enough! I don't care what it costs, I don't care which strings I have to pull, I'm getting those highlights and I'm getting them in before the photoshoot that's due in Asker. It's life and death. Btw, if you want to see what I looked like with an even shade of lavender blonde hair, check out the post called "Lavender blonde" in the "Style" category. It's still my favourite post on this entire website, by far and it has got to be because lavender blonde + Nina = perfection.
I just wish that I had my waistlength hair back... Sigh, but I got there once before, so I know that I can get there once again. I just have to be patient, that's all. Go easy on the bleach, condition it religiously and buy hair-vitamins through partial payment. Because my hair, in it's current state, just isn't good enough. No, I want.... A lavender colored river, flowing down my back with white sunlight bouncing off from the surface. Grey trails where you can just about spot the rocky bottom of the river, all mingled in with the lavender goodness and the shiny, sparkling light. I know... I know that no trip to Gevir or any other hairdresser will bring me this result overnight. I know that I won't be happy with the result, because no matter what I do it still won't be long enough. Plus, it's bound to become damaged by the process, no matter how easy we go on the bleach. The clever thing would be to wait some more, but I have waited. I spent months and months. Growing out my bangs. Staying away from temptation. Conditioning. I have done my waiting. Twelve years of it! In Azkaban!
No, but seriously though. I know that my hair won't get to where I want it to be yet, but it is longer and it is healthier now. Healthy and strong enough for me to go through with this long-term plan. It won't look that good at first, but I know hair. Come the time around say, this summer, things should be starting to look feminine again. At long last, and if not- there's always suicide.
Until next time,
