I haven’t touched my hair in over a year, except to trim off the dead ends, and I’m starting to get bored with it. I’ve thought about dying it, but I don’t know what color. I can’t do anything too crazy because I have a vague feeling it would be inappropriate (I teach community college). I suppose I could get it reddened a bit, since I have natural red highlights where the sun hits it. I’ve also thought about getting it permed. I finally get my first paycheck next week (long story) and I thought I’d celebrate by doing something for myself - get a new hairdo. So, Dopers, any advice? All my friends around here are guys and therefore supremely unhelpful when it comes to such suggestions. I am counting on your collective wisdom.
As you can see here, my hair is kinda boring at the moment. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting it cut somewhat drastically, but I’m a bit scared it’d turn out weird - plus I have somewhat coarse and kinky hair that has never looked good when chopped off. I suppose I could get it both permed and cut. Or just get thick and loose curls and not get it cut at all. Or I could shave it all off. It would save me a lot of time in the mornings.
Anyone else contemplated a hair change?
