Who is that Wild Punk Woman?

I’m tired of being tame

My hair has grown back nicely. So much that it looks like I have it this length on purpose. I toyed with the idea of getting it dyed pink or purple now, so that when it grows I’ll have cloured tips. I still think it would look good, but I’m reluctant to use anything toxic. Then a friend who is much cleverer than I am with makeup was painting herself a purple streak with hair gel and glitter.

I asked, pretty please could I have one too?

I love it! But I confess that with my current hair length and the flatter coloured lines I can’t help thinking of a tennis ball. Maybe next time I should ask for wavy lines in fluorescent green or yellow.

It’s a shame it will only last until my next shampoo. I have to learn to do this for myself, I think.
