Dreams of Red Hair.

Photobucket via

Usually when I’m feeling restless and am itching for a change, I do something drastic to my hair. I’ve had my share of major haircuts over the past few years, but through it all I’ve remained a blonde (except for the short-lived period in high school when I decided to go brunette a la Mandy Moore… but let’s not talk about that). Lately I’ve been thinking that red hair is especially lovely, and wishing that I had the guts to go firey. Red hair always stands out, and it’s rare, and it can be an instant visual marker of sassiness, a quality that I have never experienced a shortage of. I’ve always had a fondness for red-haired boys and have always caught a lot of flack for it; there seems to be such an unnecessary stigma surrounding the crimson-tressed among us. I think red hair is beautiful, and I would love to join the ranks of the lovely red-haired ladies of the world. Among them:

Photobucket And perhaps my favorite redhead of all time: the inimitable Molly Ringwald

Oh, to have such naturally beautiful red hair as these ladies… what I wouldn’t give. I don’t have the courage to go red now, but maybe someday.
