This week’s Friend Friday is all about hair. I’ve always struggled with my relationship with my hair. Many feminists may argue hair is culturally tied to the perception of a woman’s beauty. Me? I just like having long hair.
How often do you get your hair cut?
About once every six months. In fact, I just got my hair cut last Friday.
I’ve had the same hair dresser for 9 years. Every time I try someone knew, I’m always reminded why I keep going back. She’s like part of my family.
Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color?
I dyed my hair about three times when I was about 13 or 14, mostly to be rebellious. I didn’t dye it again until I was 21 and decided I wanted to go blonde. At this point in my life, I had just finished my hardest semester in college and needed a change. It was fun while it lasted, though I can’t say “blondes have more fun.” If what people mean when they say that is really, “Blondes get hit on by creepy guys in bars more often,” then maybe yes, I had more “fun.”
The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is . . .
Not doing anything to it. Seriously. The heat and the humidity of the South keeps my hair wavy. Why use a curling iron when I have Mother Nature?
What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?
I think with a lot of hair trends, I feel like, “Been there, done that.” I’ve dyed it, curled it, straightened it, cut it all off, grew it long, wore it wavy, had roots, had red hair. I think I’m content with my hair the way it is. Either that or I don’t keep up with hair trends.
