The Perks of Being Purple Wed, May 02, 2018
Every time someone meets me for the first time, their eyes widen as soon as they see my pink and purple hair. It’s funny, I’m naturally a pretty shy and introverted person but my hair gets me a lot of attention (which I’m not really fond of). The best part of having unicorn hair though, is the smiles it brings! I get all kinds of people coming up to me – Men, Women, Children, all from the ages of 3-90! I even had an 87-year-old woman talking to me in a grocery store for half an hour asking me how I do my hair. She was even writing down the products I use and swore to me that she was going to go purple too! How rad is that?!?
My mom is a pretty old-fashioned girl, she likes to see piercings, tattoos, and funky hair on other people but not so much on me. Every time I walked in with a new tattoo or wild hair style, she’d always say, “oh Michelle…”, like the world was going to end. She always told me she was worried that I wouldn’t be able to find a job with crazy hair or tattoos but I think she was just jealous that she wasn’t as cool as I was. :) The best part is, whenever we go out together, I get compliments on my hair. This always made us both laugh hysterically because it was like the world was on my side and I got the chance to go, “seeeeee!”.
Maybe she’ll come around and my next blog entry will be of her experience with purple hair. :)
