Photo Friday: Goth Girl

 

 

 

 

Some renovations use paint and saws and ladders; my current renovation requires scissors and dye. Usually such a project requires months of planning. Mine took about two minutes. The other night Mario and Edwin, the wizards of glam, called and asked if I’d be willing to model for a hair event they’re doing in December. Knowing if I said yes I would be ceding all control over what was about to happen to my scalp I took about two seconds to say, “sure, whatever you want.”

 

 

What you see above is phase one, The Color. I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon having various chemicals applied to my head while I caught up on my reading and the NY Times crossword. What emerged from the fumes was a cool, funky red with just of hint of ¬†dark ¬†gothish undertones. Having never gone through a goth phase in my teenage years I’m kind of chuffed to have one now.

 

 

 

In two weeks comes phase two, The Cut. Though there is a plan in place, Mario has told me nothing except that he’s going to do something crazy. I’m viewing it as a growth opportunity to exorcise my control freak demons. Stay tuned for the big reveal.

    There must be something in the air…..I, too, just had 6″ of long blonde hair cut off, and the remaining bob dyed a deep copper! When you post your photo, I’ll send you before and after shots of me, too!
