Run Lola Run: Personal Fashion







Sweater: H&M; Dress Inside: Zara; Shoes: Stolen from sister and maybe atleast 8 yrs old.

Tim [my colorist at Curtler Hair Salon] and I went back and forth for like 30 mins on what color I wanted on my hair. Everything ended with me saying, “Brighter”. In the end when he was still confused about how I wanted a shade that was brighter than the brightest shade on his shade card, I asked him, “ Have you seen the movie Run Lola Run?” Tim, “ Wow!! Say no more.” And this is what we came up with. Honestly I have wanted that hair since I saw the movie more than a decade ago. Yes it has been that many years of contemplating and I just ever had the guts.

Thoughts in my Head before I decided to go for it:
1] what form of torture will my parents use to kill me? [I still haven’t told them and they don’t know]
2] What if people think I am just doing this to attract more attention to myself. Cause even though I love being the center of attention I am not one of those who believes in "any publicity is good publicity" reality-TV-stars-type thing. But I do believe in letting myself express myself creatively. However it is.
3] How much damage will this do to my hair?
4] What if I loose my very sane job over my hair?

Answers to 1 and 4 we shall find out tomorrow. Answer to 3 in a few months. And in response to point number 2 which was my major concern I came up with this explanation:

Why do I care about what people think of me!!

[You may not understand the intensity of the above statement but at multiple levels it’s making me a much stronger person. I promise.]

  34. love the hair color and though not this bright, but i always wanted bright red hair for the longest time..only did a mahogany in 2007-2008 but i wanna be bolder...
    and like you...i happen to work in a very conservative(fashionwise!!) industry...so half of the things i want to do fashionwise are cut out due to that reason!!!
