During my last few visits to the salon, I had begun to get bored with my hair. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my short, spunky hair. But I wanted something different ... something not so me. Susan, my stylist talked me into a "coppery color," but my only insistence was having some blonde chunks right in the front.
Fast-forward to Thursday, and you have ME ... as a redhead!
I am having a lot of fun with this new color and the reactions I am getting from folks that are used to seeing me as a blonde. However, the most befuddling, albeit expected, response was from my fourth graders. While I received lots of approvals, there were a few in the crowd that didn't, at all, appreciate the lack of notice I gave (read: NONE) on the sudden change in hair color. As one child put it, "I much prefer a blonde teacher. This color you've got now, well, it just doesn't match."
I am not sure what it is suppose to match, but it doesn't, according to her.
Oh well! I am having fun as a redhead ... and I may just keep it this way for a while. We shall see!
