Blonde Ambition

November 24, 2010

Call it a severe case of “grass-is-greener-on-the-other-side” syndrome if you will, but I’ve always desperately longed for angelically blonde hair. Unfortunately, as far as my complexion and general colouring go, I am decidedly brunette. And trust me, it doesn’t look pretty when I try to go lighter…I’ve tried…it was a pretty unfortunate period of my life.

I guess that’s how it always goes though…the one thing that I could never pull off in a million years is the thing I most fervently wish I could have! It’s probably the same reason that I find blondes like Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron to be so pretty – they’re my exact opposites!

    I can totally relate to this! I go through phases where all I want is long wispy blonde hair but my coloring would never allow it. I was especially longing for it during the summer when everyone was putting subtle streaks of cotton candy colours in their hair and it would never show up in mine. When my blonde ambition strikes, I find that pulling out a Grade seven picture and throwing on a blonde wig provides a quick change of heart. The roots would be too much to deal with anyway! xx
