The New Do

It was time for a new do.  I have had the same hair style for 11 years running and decided it was time for a change.  I have been wanting to get my hair dyed red, I mean really red, for quite a few years now.  I was reluctant to do it during the time we were adopting Harold in case someone decided red, I mean really red, haired people weren't fit to raise children or something.  But now, the timing was just right.  

My inspiration was this hair was the above photo.  It was sported on Jennifer Garner as one of her get ups from the show Alias.  For those of you who didn't watch every single episode of Alias, she was basically an under cover secret agent girl working for a covert branch of the CIA.  She got to wear all kinds of really cool outfits and wigs on her undercover missions to save the world from disaster.  

The color didn't turn out exactly like the photo but pretty close and I love it!  It feels strangely normal and is tons of fun to have.  One lady said I reminded her of her Strawberry Shortcake doll from when she was a kid. 

I got my hair done at Hair Police in Minneapolis.  It was recommended to me as a place that specializes in bright & alternative hair colors.   It was the perfect!  I was very inspired by all the people that worked there who used their bodies as a creative medium.  So . . . . what do you think?

Thanks everyone! It is fun to have.

I feel bad asking this but . . . who are you Rita? I only know Rita Olanna but I don't think she checks our blog. You sound like you know us well.

Glad to see you're following the blog, Kip. =)

Oh Charity, you're so sweet.
