New Poll: It seems like every female weblogger asks this at some point, but what the hell. What color should I dye my hair? You can see the whole spectrum in the image at the top of the site. It’s currently red, but faded. I’m not sure whether I should change it. On one hand, bright red hair might make it a little more difficult to get a job (once I finally start looking). But on the other, I live in the punky part of town, and how much longer will I be able to get away with this in my life? Maybe I should keep it a little longer. So look through those pics and tell me what you think.

On a related note, I’ve got a new experience scheduled for today: I’m having my eyebrows waxed. No, I don’t have a unibrow or anything. But I’m tired of tweezing them to keep them pretty, so I’m gonna pay some woman to shape them for me. Full report to follow…

  1. funny you should ask—i’ve recently decided to once and for all get off of the hair-dye train. it’s mainly because the DIY stuff wrecks havoc on my hair, but i’m also thinking way WAY into the future, wondering what effects hair dye might have on our future fetuses…

    ridiculous, i know, but that’s me in a nutshell. i’ll spare you the Austin Powers quote. 😉

    so my question for you: have you ever been blonde? if not, i say go for it (i always wanted to go platinum). if not, i’d stick with the red-hot red. i miss it from time to time, but i’m really looking forward to a life without split ends.

  2. Go a nice tame shade of red (keeping the job market in mind), or black. It’d be cute if you looked just like your Korean Grandma.

  3. Hey, what about this Howie- Strawberry Blonde? Then, you get the fun red-ness, and the color may compliment your skin tone. I’ve had a lot of hair changes in my day, too. Tip: if you go slightly lighter, do it at a salon the first time- otherwise it will be F-ed when you dye on top of an old manic-panic-y color.

  4. Yeah, I was blonde for most of college. (See pics 6, 7, 9, 11 in the top row, and 4, 10, 12 in the bottom row.) I’d like to do it again, but it’s even more of a maintenance hassle than the red. And it dries your hair out even more.

    I’m thinking about Tara D’s suggestion. It just might work.

    The only problem is that whatever I do, they’re going to have to strip all the red out first. Ick. It’s gonna take forever and cost a fortune. That’s the main argument for staying red.

    Dude, black was a total joke. You do NOT want to see me as my Korean grandma. 🙂

  5. Hee hee! Oh, c’mon, why not??
