I'd been wanting to go blonde for years, really, but I was warned against it by many people. "People will assume you're dumb," they said. "It will make you look trashy," they said. Personally, I have enough confidence to realize that changing my hair color does not decrease my intelligence, nor do I plan to buy into that "oh, I'm having such a dumb blonde moment!" stereotype. Also, I'm not a trashy person by any means, and I don't plan on becoming that way any time soon (or, I mean, ever... ahahah!)
Also, I was told that it would ruin the texture of my hair. -Maybe- it is the slightest bit less soft!? But not so much that it looks unhealthy. Honestly, instead of using actual hair dye, my hairdresser Ashley (SHE IS AMAZING!!!) put in approx. 2030203728290949837228493 foils in my hair :3 with only just bleach, and it lifted the natural color of my hair to become extremely light! Then, she put a glaze in it with some toner to avoid any orangish-brassiness. So even though no hair dye was even used, I am so incredibly pleased by the results. Although I do plan on actually using actual hair dye rather than a million bleached highlights in the future, I really love the way it came out, already!
