I may just be, quite possibly, the most fickle person on the planet. In my last hair inspo post, I specifically said that I wanted any hair color but black, and now I can't shake off the idea of wanting to dye my hair the blackest black possible. All these Zipper girls dyeing their hair jet black aren't helping either! In that sense, is black hair the new in thing? Last year there was an influx of pastel-colored hair in all possible variations.. could this possibly be an answer to that? I wonder. Either way, I think it looks lovely! I didn't notice it before, but jet black seems to stand out in an almost shocking-to-the-eyes way, the same way brightly dyed hair does. It looks amazing especially against pastel outfits and pale skin.


My current hairstyle. No bangs!!

I've been mulling over the idea in my head for quite some time now, but I'm still partial to having dyed hair. I still kind of like my pudding hair, but now that I've been trying to go for a more 'mature' image, I don't think it still looks good on me. By mature, I only mean I don't want to look cutesy all the time. I still want to look cute, but with a sort of 'cool girl' feeling. Get what I mean? Put into numbers, I'd like to be 60% cute and 40% cool. Haha! I'm sorry for not making sense..

The truth is, a lot of my friends have already started talking me out of it, as well.. black hair seems so boring! So I was thinking that a good way to keep a bit of blonde hair is to do a vertical two-tone, kind of like Uruha's DECADE look, which I am quite fond of. What do you think? I still have a bit of time to decide whether or not I want to go through with it so..
