Ally: I would wager that my bucket list differs from the majority of people. Not that I think I`m unique or anything, just that I`m secure in the knowledge that I might possibly have the worst taste ever. And yet, I`ve tricked you into reading a fashion blog that I co-operate. Who`s the sucker? Kidding of course. So, bucket list. My list includes such things as:

  1. Being Britney Spears EA for a day. Just a day. That’s all I’d need. I’d paint her toes, fetch her frapachinos (spl? Whatevs). I’d get to go to her concert as well.
  2. Being a contestant on the Amazing Race with my oldest friend Steph. We’d either be hilarious, or terrifyingly dumb.
  3. Attend a week-long cooking school in Italy. Ok, this might be on many people’s bucket list, but I seriously need the help. The other day I burnt Jello. On an aside, does anyone want to help me bake a cake for my soon-to-be one year old boy? Again, burnt jello. Require assistance.

Another thing on my bucket list was to one day have red hair. Not half-assed red hair (like, “strawberry blonde highlights” which I’ve totally had in the past), but full on Christina Hendricks red hair.

Some of her other assets would be nice to have as well. That’s a whole other post that Eden should probably write (only because Eden goes there, I mean, she talked about getting a bikini wax during her Dress like Gaga post…loved it).

I can officially check this one off the bucket list.

Off I trotted to Vibe Salon in Bedford yesterday to see Barrett (who is the loveliest, most talented stylist you could meet).  I brought a couple of photos (one of Ashlee Simpson…I know. Cringe) and we decided to go for it. Full on. No baby foils, do the whole head of hair. Barrett was kind enough to take a before picture:

Upon looking at this photo. I really miss my blonde hair…

After many hours, and a lecture from an impatient husband, I arrived home to show Neighbourhood Bestie Melissa (who took the after photo):

And…

So, yah. The colour is pretty dramatic. Which I guess is fitting. Barrett did a great job, no question, but I’m not sure if I’m meant to be a redhead. I love the blond, but the constant root attention drove me a bit batty. This certainly isn’t subtle, and I’m not sure whether I look more avant garde in the hair department or if I look more stripper who’s taking a brief leave from Vegas and setting up shop in the ‘burbs. Judging by my husband’s little smirk when I came home last night I’m thinking possibly the latter.

Speaking of Neighbourhood Bestie Melissa. She’s off to her first day of school. She’s hotter than the teachers on Glee (she teaches math and band, for real, we need her in the Glee Challenge). Check out her back-to-school outfit.

Smokin’. Also, Melissa just got back from a shopping venture in the States. She’s going to guest blog about her purchases. Should be a novel based on the bags she brought home.

    I like it! I went red last fall and loved it so much that I debated doing it again this year. The only thing is that my roots drove my crazy with red hair just as much as they did with blonde highlights, so I’ve decided to give my hair a bit of a break and go dark brown instead. The red really brings out your eyes!

    I like the red! Very sassy! Blond is a bitch to maintain, no doubt.
    Loving Neighbourhood Bestie Melissa’s back to school outfit as well. She puts my old teachers to shame!

    Ally,
    Love the hair! Red head is on my bucket list too. Alas, I am terrified I won’t see my blonde again. I envy your bravado. Well done!

    In terms of cake for your soon to be one year old…try this no bake cake (no jello either!) http://www.recipes4cakes.com/nobakecake/dirt_cake.htm

    It’s a delight and perfect for children!

    I love the red! I’ve wanted full on red ever since Angela Chase dyed her hair Crimson Glow. All my attempts have been half-assed and from a box. (I also want pale mauve hair – which causes serious cringes for my hairdresser Krista).

  5. The red hair looks great on you!!! Love it! :)

  6. Heidi says:

    LOVE the red hair!

  7. Ivy says:

    Love the red!! Just make sure you don’t go the extensions route after this… We would need a Rachel intervention and vote you out to the jury house.

  8. Allene! says:

    It looks awesome! And now I feel so wimpy for my usual “copper highlights please”!

    Found you via 365 Fashion Rehab and I love your blog! I also love your red hair– I have been red (REALLY RED!) many times in my life and it is, by far, my favourite hair colour. It is, however, high maintenance– red fades. I went blonde in the spring in frustration over re-growth; my natural colour is now (alas!) grey, so the regrowth situation in red hair was NOT GOOD. But I miss it– I really don’t like my blonde hair and I just don’t feel like myself. So I am thrilled for you that you have gone red– it looks great on you– I am just happy that someone can enjoy being a redhead, now that I can’t.
