Purple Hair, Don't Care

Do not adjust your computer screens, what you have seen has not been photoshopped...

I got my hair did done last week and went with violet ombre!

…and five inches off…oh yeah, and she straightened it, but only temporarily.

I blame roller derby.
and a random person on Instagram that posted this about a month back…

I saw it and thought, "YEAH! It is!"

I've always wanted "cool" hair. As a curly haired, full faced chick my options for switching things up are fairly limited. I can't do bangs (although I do believe have a forehead fivehead that begs for them)… cute crops are out (unless I want to look like a cha-cha-chia!)… straight is fun and changes my look BIG time but I don't have the patience or $ to make that happen every day, or at all, really.


I figured why not do something totally different that could actually work on me?! I don't know why it took something like seeing a post on Instagram to make me feel like I suddenly had permission to do this, but it did. I don't have a boss My kids are technically my bosses and they don't mind one bit that I have a whacky hair color.. in fact, I think it endeared our 5 year old to me even more (and luckily she has yet to ask if she can have purple hair too).. 

So that's whats going on with me. It's been quite a month. Lots of highs, bigger lows. But purple hair makes me smile, so thats a win.

(The bruise on my arm is from derby.. I need to have tshirts made to explain so people stop giving Hottie dirty looks when we're out together. Poor guy, his wife has purple hair and is covered in bruises. #imakeeper)

…and here is a final, slightly more edited shot… I think I might go even brighter next time. :)


  1. I FREAKING LOVE YOUR HAIR! And it's so "in" because I was scrolling through my feedly and about two posts after yours I saw this one: and she has dark purple hair too! Love it love it love it.

  2. LOVE it So much. I have always wanted "cool hair" like that too ;) Unfortunately I have to let ALL the henna grow out of my head before I can even attempt a bright color. That is going to take FOREVER!

    1. Thanks Laurie. :) Your hair IS cool! I've always admired the boldness of it. :)

  3. WOW!! Way to go on the SOOOO not boring hair!! And yes, I agree, Life is too short to have boring hair!! So cool - love it!!
