I’m loving this new “trend” of actresses dying their hair crazy colors like purple and blue. It transports me back to freshman year of high school (early 2000s!) when I was on the crew team and roomed with the “crazy” girls at an away regatta and they all dyed their hair since we were adult-less.
Side note: they were deemed “crazy” because they were kind of goth/punk/dressed like they stepped out of Hot Topic, had a lot of piercings, dyed their hair crazy colors and a few were lesbians. In reality, they weren’t crazy at all, they just didn’t look like the rest of us, but I’m sure most of the white middle-class parents on our team thought they were all going to turn us into blue-haired lesbians, but I digress.
So they dyed their hair (using manic panic!) and of course I was there to watch/did not dye my hair because my parents would kill me and I really liked my hair. One dyed hers red and stained the bathtub. In a fit of spontaneity (I am not/was not spontaneous) I dyed one single strand of hair (underneath, so my parents couldn’t see), and thought I was the baddest motherfucker there.
