The Bettie Page Look

Ever have one of those moments when you think 'Man, I sure would like a change.'? Then, it winds up being a really bad move? *sigh* I walked into the salon this morning and told my hairdresser that I'd like to go darker this time.

Oops. Couple the dark hair with the bangs that he blew dry to go all the way across my forehead and I walked out of there looking like Bettie Page with glasses, a UNT t-shirt and capri pants.

I'm not sure what I think about the look yet. This is close to my natural color - but darker. Way darker, I think. The last time I had hair like this was the day after I met Army of Dad wayyyyyyy back in 1997. I got some crazy idea that I wanted to dye my hair jet black. He wasn't a fan then. I doubt he'll be a fan of this now. He likes me blonde. Although, perhaps, we could play Bettie Page tonight. :) That might make the look bearable for him.

    I like it!

    I went dark last week too, but I've been hasseling my hair stylist to do it for a while, he finally caved but only agreed to put in "dark and high lights" - I love what he did!

    Anyway, you can always add lighter color! ;)

    I like it, looks way adorable...

    I broke down and did the same...changed mine back to my noramal brunette color...

    I like it, and it requires way less care. Also, I do not spend half of my time with roots looking BAD.

    It looks cute. Go brunette

    I like it. After all, it's fall. And, it looks more the way I remember you. =)

    That's a very pretty color on you! I only know your colors from pics you've posted, but you can definitely carry off brunette. I've wondered about myself, and about more red,
    but today I went back to my usual fall/winter color, Garnier Nutrisse #90 Light Natural Blonde Macadamia.
