Seeing Red

My hair’s been every natural shade from black to strawberry blonde, but I took a roughly six year break from hair dye and accepted my natural color.  A couple weeks ago, I broke my hiatus and went blonde for summer!  If you follow me on instagram, you’ve probably seen my new tresses.  I’m loving being blonde again, but my true desire is to be a redhead.  Here are my hair idols.

My girl Jenny Lewis rocks a very natural shade of red, subtle but still lovely.  She’s my true hair idol, but I’m not prepared to take on bangs.  I think this is likely my future color!  This whole look is actually perfection.

Karen Gillan had gorgeous, long, red hair.  She cut it all off for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Luckily, they made her a wig of her own hair… which she wears for Selfie.  Can I borrow that wig?

Christina Hendricks as Joan Holloway rocks a vibrant, attention-grabbing red.  This is a red that makes no apologies.  It’s nice to see that Christina Hendricks can rock a coral lip with this hair color.  Very encouraging for me.

Bonus: Gillian Anderson

The X-Files

She’s blonde now, and I’m pretty sure I can blame my going-blonde again on her.  Back when I first fell in love with Gillian Anderson, she was Dana Scully, and a redhead!  I could definitely transition with this strawberry shade.

So, red’s next!  Maybe for fall.  Who are your hair idols?

  1. You know how when some people get drunk they talk about how they want to get a tattoo they’d never get or move someplace they wouldn’t ever move?

    With me, it’s red hair. I will talk about dying my hair red for hours if I’ve had a few drinks and someone brings up hair color!
