Colour Me Rose Gold
People all over the world spend an exorbitant amount of money to look good and feel good about themselves. Pedicures, manicures, facials, makeup, clothing, botox, and the topic of today… hair. The hair industry is $85 billion dollars a year and steadily growing at more than 2% which is greater than the population growth of approximately 1% per year. (That was your learning something new for today. Have a rest, on me.)
I like a good mani/pedi or to treat myself to nice clothes but I have to remind myself to get my hair done. Some women I know get their hair styled more than once every 18 months. I know, that’s incredible resolve. (Our dog goes every 5 weeks as an aside). Last time I went, I asked for, “the same as you did last time.” They told me the last time was three years ago. Ouch.
This week was the exception. I have been eyeing up the colours people put in their hair and think, “I could pull that off.” So I added it to my life list, did some research, and spent 5.5 hours with a hair artist, Kazuma from Good Day Hairshop, who developed a custom colour that won’t fade to silver and make me feel and look old.
Hair is such a statement of how you feel. I normally feel… pony-taily and don’t give my hair any thought or even show it a brush. Over this past week, I feel fun, happy, and less pony-taily and more, ‘let my freak flag fly’. Beware world, my rosy gold inner girl is on the loose and she’s pretty badass.

Sorry… I didn’t get to tell you about those bruises I mentioned earlier. Still waiting on the results of the X-ray before I update you. I might be too old for some of my own antics 🙂
