I want to be the Cool Mom. Don’t We All?
But…Ah…the Big But.
Hair Color. Guess it’s No Big Deal. But…Yes…the Big But.
Her Beautiful. Perfect. Long Straight Black Hair. Untouched. Perfect.
Did I say Perfect? Yes. Perfect.
But Finally I Agree to Some Color.
Really Mom??? I Can Get Color???
At a Salon. With an Expert. Yes.
First Pull All the Color Out. With Bleach. Master Mixing.
Thin Streaks Tucked Under the Top Layers of Hair. With Foils.
Painting on the Bleach.
Packaging Up the Foils.
Very, Very Blonde. No Turning Back Now.
Rinsing out the Bleach.
Red. Vegetable Based Color. Paul Mitchell Color.

The Look is Fun. Red. Pretty. Kicky. A Flash of Color.

Just Knowing It’s There is the Magic.
Thank You Mom. Thank You Mom.
