IS THIS FAT OLD LADY TOO OLD TO ROCK PINK HAIR?

 

new hair

I went for almost 2 years without a haircut.

I hate to admit it, but this isn’t all that unusual for me.  When it comes to my hair, I’m not much of a girly-girl.  I don’t know what to do with it, so I want it in a style that I can get by with the least amount of effort and still not have people point and scream.

I couldn’t cut my hair during 1776 – I needed the long white(ish) hair to play Ben.

I could’ve cut my hair during Always Patsy Cline, but I was dealing with a wig, and really short hair can be an issue with a wig – nothing to pin the wig to.

Shows done.  Haircut got.

And I love it.  I think it’s adorable, and I don’t have to do dick – wash it, comb it behind my ears and it gets just the right curl to it.  Truthfully, my haircut is the Becky Jackson (Glee reference) haircut (and I love Becky’s hair).

So I have been saying that once I got my haircut I was going to dye it pink.  I got L’Oreal Paris Feria Smokey (Pastel) Pink.

And I am terrified to use it.

Why?

I’ve never had a problem with L’Oreal hairdye and the Feria dyes are not usually really long lasting – they fade.

If it comes out horrible, I can just dye it another color.

I guess in my heart of hearts, I’m thinking I’m too fucking old for this.

And maybe I’m right.

But why do I suddenly give a shit?

On second thought, I got this, right?

  1. Oh yes, you’ve definitely got this. I’m trying to picture you with that sweet, demure-looking pink and I really think it would work. You’re only as old as you want to be when it comes to your hair color.

  2. Omg!! Did you do it? I hope you did! When I turned 50 last year I dyed my hair pink and loved it. I came across you while searching for pink hair because it’s time to color it again. Have all the fun!
