A few weeks ago, I posted about how I was craving a colour change and asked you guys for your thoughts on which direction I should go. The response was overwhelmingly that I should go brunette (56% – see the results here). I have to admit, I had been leaning toward that colour to begin with, but after seeing the results of the poll, the thought of actually committing to it was nerve-wracking for me. When it comes to my appearance—whether it’s my hair, makeup, or general style—I’m a bit of a change-phobe. When I first got highlights, I wanted them so subtle that in the end most of my friends couldn’t even see them. The same goes for my haircuts (except my most recent one): no one could usually tell. I wanted it to be different this time. I had been craving a change, and what better time than now (when I have nothing better to do)? I decided to take the plunge:

I went for a brown that’s a bit darker than my natural colour, with an auburn undertone for warmth. Thanks to everyone who voted and/or gave me advice and suggestions in person! So far, I’m loving it.

Stay fearless,
