Every woman has hair envy. If your hair is short, you wish you had long, cascading locks (and to every nice woman who has complimented me on mine, I thank you times a million for helping boost my self-esteem). Those who have ringlets dream of stick-straight, center-parted hair. You get the point. While I enjoy most aspects of my hair, I’m pretty tame when it comes to coloring and cutting it. I prefer having my long, wavy locks with a few layers. I’ve only dyed it once (to a darker brown in 10th grade and did a DIY ombre back in 2011) mainly because I hate damaging it and I don’t like the upkeep.
However, if I could change hair temporarily for a day or two, I would. Lately I’ve been loving the look of red hair. Whether it’s an auburn, a darker red or strawberry blonde, it’s very pretty. And different. While you won’t catch me adding red to my hair anytime soon, I can still look at it from afar and comment on how pretty it is.
For example, let’s look at Jessica Chastain. The woman is not only beautiful and a great actress, but her hair is to die for (or to dye for- get it?) Any guy in high school who made fun of her for her hair color is hopefully kicking himself right now. Evan Rachel Wood recently dyed her locks an auburn shade, and I love the retro feel to it. And blogger Tsangtastic, whose photo has been re-pinned so many times on my Pinterest feed, gives me total hair envy.
What hair color/style/cut are you envying currently?
