After about five years of being a red head -or some variation, I’ve decided to go blonde -well mostly, I’m getting highlights. I was planing on getting it done prior to leaving Miami, but just didn’t have the chance.
Fast forward a few months and I still have that desire to go light. However, I’m in Italy now and I swear, like 90% of the population here is blonde. When we go out and about in town the number of women I see with blonde hair far outweighs that of black hair or brunettes. Forget about red, I think I’ve spotted about 3 red heads since I’ve been here and they’ve all been on base. I’ve not travelled farther than Venice yet, so I can’t speak for the rest of the country, but here in Northern Italy, the women love to be blonde.
So I’ve compiled a few of my favorite blondes via my Pinterest board “Oh so Pretty Hair” as a bit of hairspiration for my stylist tomorrow (which oh my gawd – am I hoping she is awesome!)
Have I mentioned how much I miss having bangs? I do, but I’ve spent 9 months growing those bad boys out – I won’t be going back into bang territory for a while.
This is sort of my hair goal. Long, all (mostly) one length. I also like the darker roots which is why I’m opting for highlights.
Cameron Diaz. Love her.
Is there nothing more quintessential and classic-glam beauty than blonde hair with red lips?
