After that, I didn’t do much with my hair. I’d perm it every once in a while in high school, but c.a.r.e.f.u.l.l.y! But other chemical stuff? That I didn’t do.
Until lawschool, when I decided to use one of those wash out purple colors for a party. Little did I know that on thin, fine hair, they don’t wash out so well. I went to conservative Baylor law the following Monday with bright purple hair … in the days before anyone went to school with bright purple hair.
Thus endeth my coloring experiments … at least until I hit my 40s.
Now, I’m a total convert. I love getting my hair colored. It’s fun; it’s like playing dress-up! And when my soon-to-be-eleven year old daughter asked for color for her birthday, her dad and I agreed.
So now my Catherine is a strawberry blonde! (I forgot to take an after picture … it was dark … but the pic above is her in the foils.)
And, of course, I discovered mani/pedis way late in life, too. My kids, however, have been going for years.
Yep, starting them young … and I have to say I love having girl time with my girls!
Do you have kids? What “grown up” stuff did they do at a younger than traditional age?
