Now that I’ve got much darker hair I feel a little… intimidating? Edgy? Two vigourous shampoos later (one with baking soda to try to pull out more color) and I still feel a little like I’m wearing someone else’s hair. Like I need to be wearing brass knuckles or something?! I just don’t feel like I look… sweet? To counter that, bring on the pale pink and ruffles! I also feel like the black legs balance out the very dark brown hair a tad too. The good news is that a) it’s just hair and b) it’s a fun challenge to work with something different for a while. It is, however, the last time I will go this dark (and it was only one shade darker than I normally go!!)

Since we’re in tights season… here’s a tip: Look on the package for ‘denier’ and try to find the highest possible number (I usually aim for 80, sometimes you can find 120). Also consider going a size up if up want really dark, opaque looking tights. I routinely by the L/XL for my height as well. I also know some gals swear by fleece lined tights for warmth and opacity!
