My New 'Do

Hey guys. I'm Anna, and you have probably seen my many sarcastic comments on this blog. Well, now I'm writing a post. Thank you, MIT Mommy! If you didn't know, MIT Mommy is my aunt. Be shocked! Isn't that awesome? So I can catch up what's happening up in Cleveland (a 6-hour car ride away) just by hitting a few buttons on my Inspiron 1520. Well, now everyone can catch up with me in glorious Baltimore, Maryland. Isn't that lovely and deep? Reading insightful insights into the insightful life of a middle-schooler...

Okay, I'm getting a bit carried away.

So the title on this post is "My New 'Do". Why? Because "My New Hairstyle" sounds weird. Also, because I got a new hairdo. Why? Because I can. And there's nothing you can do about it.

So I went to the salon on a Wednesday evening. It was about four o'clock, and kind of rainy. I sat down on the little sofa with my hairdresser and told her what I wanted her to do with my hair.

First, I wanted my eyebrows ripped.

Second, I wanted my split ends trimmed.

Third, I wanted my hair dyed blue.
Not completely blue. Just like a few highlights.
She nodded and said something like, "Okay. Blue hair. Okay." She also looked at me like I was a strange little girl.

At seven o'clock that night, my hair and eyebrows looked superultrafantabulous. My sister hated it at first, but then it 'grew on her' and now she thinks it looks superultrafantabulous, too. When my dad first saw it, he just got kind of quiet and didn't say much. (My mom told me later that he didn't like that 'stuff'. He's really conservative. Which is another way of torturing your children.) My mom says that it's "just a stage." I beg to differ. She also says it's better than piercings or tattoos. This, dear mother, I agree on.

At seven o'clock the next morning, I got on the school bus to get to school.

At eight o'clock that morning, my friends almost passed out laughing at me. I passed my crush talking to his friends in the hallway. All I caught him saying was "blue hair." My mom's friend, our school's special education teacher, loved it.

Maybe blue hair could be a new trend.

And now for my photo section. I have two pictures. I have no idea if they will upload, but I am crossing my fingers. So...if they don't show up, don't get angry or anything.

This is me with blue hair. It took about forever and a half to figure out how to blur out my face. Since I have no Photoshop on my computer, I had to make do with Photo Impression, Paint, and my webcam. There is a big purple question mark on my face, because I am really paranoid.

(And remember, this is after like five showers and a week. It doesn't look as good as the first day.)

This is the replacement color that I bought yesterday at the ULTA. You're supposed to use it to make your whole head blue. But that would look a tad bit ugly, no? So I'm going with highlights (again). If my dad lets me.

Well, this concludes my post. But before I say au revoir, I have one thing to ask you...SHOULD I DO PINK NEXT TIME? Lol. Well, I hope to see everyone in the comments section! <3,>

No pink. Bright red or orange. Orange would be great. Might as well go for summer shock value and do neon yellow. :)

Being a guy, I'll plead the 5th on fashion and hairstyle advice.

Thanks everyone for commenting. It has been brought to my attention that...wait for it...MIT Mommy herself has had pink highlights in her hair in high school. Haha!

I like the blue but I think pink would look good too. It is kind of a neat fad right now. Go for it. When you are old like all of us, you'll be glad you did it. Have fun!

MIT MOMMY had P.I.N.K. highlights. LOL I have had the pleasure of dancing with wreckless abandon to Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me" with MIT Mommy, but I didn't see the the pink highlights coming. Thanks for sharing.... :)

Yes, I did have pink highlights. I'm not sure I would want to go blue now, mostly because if I want to be a 'blue hair' I probably don't need the help of a salon - I think those come up naturally (although I would tend to call them gray over blue).

I like your blue hair. And, just for the record, your Grandma liked my pink highlights too (I think Grandpa refrained from commenting).
