I'm not sure what came over me. Oh wait, it is maybe the coolest thing ever in the history of everdom! Why would I not want rainbow hair?? You could say, hey Elizabeth, you're a 32 year old mother of four... maybe you're a little too old and settled for crayon colored locks? I say, how dare you. haha, I kid, I kid.
In all honesty I know my hair is bananas. I know most people just don't get it. When in public I steel myself for the stares (most obviously from kids who point and tug on their Mom's, and old folks who look at me with utter disbelief.)... I hear people fling around judgements and mutter things about "needing attention" ... all behind my back when they think I'm out of ear shot. Maybe curly rainbows are supposed to cause hearing problems?
I'm sorry, I can't hear your judgement through my epic waves.
Luckily I don't do outlandish things with my hair for anyone but me. I don't do it to be noticed (in fact being noticed makes me pretty uncomfortable). I have rainbow hair for one very simple and important reason:
I just want rainbow hair, because I think it's cool.
That's it. I just want to do cool things with my hair, even if that makes me weird. I'm not crying out for attention, or trying to stand out from the crowd, or sticking it to the man, or fighting against the stay at home Mom stereotypes. Playing with different hair colors is fun. I'm a creative person who has always been drawn to bright, bold colors. I use them in every aspect of my life... it's no surprise, really, that that translates to my hair.
So that's it. I just wanted to share...
I wonder what colors I'll try next?
