The Color Purple
To my mother's continued bewilderment I dyed purple streaks in my hair. I did purple streaks before once in college, I've added red streaks quite a few times, and died my whole head a deep cherry-mahogany once as well.
In college I lived close to a hair school. My freshman year I would go get a haircut whenever I got bored. My hair just got shorter and shorter that year.
I don't get that nervous about cutting or dying my hair because it will always grow and fade out. So sometimes when I'm not feeling control over any other part of my life I'll change my hair, just to show my life who's boss.
So, accordingly, I cut myself bangs before leaving on our vacation. Take that universe!
I haven't worn bangs since I first got hard contacts in 5th grade, and my bangs just added too much to the irritation of my poor eyes. They're a bit short, but they'll grow out. . .
That's the beauty of it.
