Ever came to a point where having a plain black hair feels so boring? I felt it. As a Filipina, I have my jet black, straight hair ever since. Not that I’m complaining, I love how I can style any style I want, long, short, curly, shaggy. But yes, I came to a point where having a black hair feels so plain.
It was last year when I decided to be braver and ticked off one of the things on my bucketlist—color my hair. I went to a salon but wasn’t satisfied with the results so I did a DIY color my hair. I never felt so liberating in my life. I remember one of my friends in the province said to me this when she saw me for the first time after coloring my hair, “Does your mom agree with what you did to your hair?” I just replied that I didn’t ask for her permission and laugh it out. I think this is one of a perks of being a member of a traditional Filipino family, you have to ask permission of what you want to do even if you’re already a working young adult. But gladly, my Mom was not shocked; she even liked what my new hair color is. Months later, I decided to chop it off because summer and mom was not happy about.
Anyway, I feel like coloring my hair once again. Blonde, rose gold, ultra dark brown, ash brown. How about, pastel ones and those bold, bright colors. I always dreamed of having a dark blue locks. Did you guys know that hair coloring is easy to do? Just get yourself the right products and viola! Hashtag, hairgoals it is!
Though, coloring your hair is not the only way to achieve hairgoals. Styling it is one of the easiest ways. High pony? City sleek? Short messy shag, undone waves or messy braids.
Stress not, sunny people.
