hair & beauty

Kolours Chestnut Brown

Out of boredom, I dyed my hair. The first and last time I ever attempted to do so was a few weeks shy of my 18th birthday; I guess I did a pretty decent job, considering I was only 17 then.

Quick comparison.

I thought it appropriate to take a “Hi my name is Mhe-Annze, I’m from Balara, txtm8z?! EB?!?!” photo. Bah, I know I look fug there, but it’s okai! Cos I’ve got inner beautay! And all that jazz!

ARGH. Look at my eyebrows, look at my hair. So I did what seemed to be the sanest thing to do, up until 5 seconds ago (cos now I have nooo idea how I’m going to rinse it out— dunk my face into a basin of water?): I used the leftover dye on my eyebrows.

Next time, I find time to sit my ass in a salon and have a pro do it. Red highlights, yes. Or totally go Fiona Apple-brown. It’s instances like these that make me feel I’m a waste of kikay estrogen. I can do the dishes, do the laundry, scrub the floor, maybe throw in some ironing (and cooking, definitely cooking. And shoe-shining), and pee perfectly into a bottle. But I cannot, for the life of me, cut my own nails, pluck my own eyebrows, and dye my own hair.

Also, I think this is nervousness I’m feeling: tonight, I get to see what it really is like, being a corporate travel specialist. Ooh boy, after more than two months, I’m back to taking in calls. Also, I’m craving for Kublai’s eat-all-you-can buffet.

Can’t everyday be Sunday? Can I please get an LCD HDTV?

    It always seems like a good idea after the first few hours. That’s exactly how I felt after I bleached my hair. haha

    Now is this your hair NOW or when you were 18??

    • Reply Helga April 24, 2007 at 7:15 am

      My hair now :D

      This was when I was 18. Well, 17. Two weeks before turning 18:

      I’m obviously not the blonde. Yeah, I was an ugly. But my hair wasn’t tacky-brown!

        nice shiny hair! the blonde girl looks like shawna. is that her? anyway, i haven’t tried dying my eyebrows. that would totally change someone’s look. i think a fiona apple-brown would look awesome on you :)

        • Reply Helga April 25, 2007 at 6:39 am

          Yup, Shauna! I didn’t leave the dye long enough on my eyebrows– I was skurred they’d fall off, haha. So yeah, my eyebrows don’t match my hair.

      • Reply Tracy April 24, 2007 at 5:11 pm

        aha… so yeah, it doesn’t look bad at all ;)

    Your hair looks like “tumatanggap ka ng labada”. I met Allah’s furby today, her name is Alice Amor Cancio. (Tumatanggap din sya ng labada.)

      Tumatanggap naman talaga ako ng labada. Minsan.
