I love the idea of fun pops of color in my hair, but I'm not 16 anymore... can I really get away with it?
For the most part, I do and wear what I want without taking others' opinions into account... but a few months ago I witnessed something that made me think twice. I saw a girl with the hottest hot pink hair (which I loved), and a man walking by her said: "Oh geez! What was SHE thinking? Someone obviously doesn't own a mirror." I thought: Really?! People still feel that strongly about these things? There's still a stigma that goes along with pink hair?
So, yeah... I guess I kind of care. I don't want people making comments like that about me behind my back. Actually... to be totally honest with you- I really only care about Jeff's grandma or (worse) his dad looking at me like I've lost my damn mind.
But that doesn't mean I can't play around with color entirely, right?
I've been really keen to experiment with dip-dyed tips. Candied pinks, deep turquoise, cobalt blues, and vibrant purples... I was therefore, SO thrilled to find the Lawless & Lulu shop on etsy. I'm obsessed with the fun clip-in colors. These amazing extensions are available in any base shade, I ordered a base slightly lighter than my own hair to look very highlighted and streaky. The panels can be customized in varying lengths and widths, in infinite colors, and styles like ombre, dip-dye, or full-color highlights. They can even be done in variegated and rainbow shades. SO ideal for someone like me who wants the option to enjoy color, swap it out at will, or take it out entirely.
They're also priced really well, and I'm very happy with the quality too. I've washed mine, styled them, and even let Evelyn borrow them (the ultimate test). They still look great! ♥

Footnote: I'd like to thank my mother for tolerating my original hair color phase in the 90's. And for allowing me the freedom to bounce around from pinks, to blues, to greens, to purples... while I matched my hair to my Doc Marten's. And in case any of you ever find yourself in the following predicament; trust me when I tell you that the only thing strong enough to remove black hair dye from brand new white-washed wood trim- is platinum blonde hair dye. Too bad we didn't have these clippies back then, right mama?
