Emphasis on the sometimes. If there’s one thing I FEAR it is hair dye (in my hair). I’m not sure how this phobia was introduced — as I had a regular relationship with a colorist in college every 6 weeks. I did it all — nearly black (forever locked into photographic evidence all over my in-laws walls because I had just gotten it done before my bro in-law’s wedding), so highlighted it was nearly blonde and even a dash of red. The latter was an unfortunate DIY accident when I was a teenager, but still. I quit the dye cold turkey about seven years ago and have really grown to love my natural color.*
So when I felt myself wanting to sport a peek of color in my locks, I knew it had to be temporary. Think of bright hair streaks as this year’s hair feather. Beyond my own dye-phobia, extensions are the way to go as these trends seem to be fleeting. And do I ever have a temporary option….
They are unbelievably easy to use, they snap in like a barrette and stay in place. They are made from human hair, and feel really soft. They look as real as fuchsia hair can possibly look. For $14.99 (love the price), you get two 20 inch-long, one-inch wide, bright fuchsia extensions (or whatever color you fancy — blue, red, green or purple). Being the conservative one with my hair color these days, it’s totally fun to throw some color in there.
