Indulging The Diva Within – And Without

In an uncharacteristic and expensive indulgence of my physical vanity, I decided to spend large and have my hair cropped and dyed at a cooler-than-thou Sydney salon. My hair is normally jet black – with flecks of premature grey caused by the toxins in enamel paint – but I wanted to try turning it platinum. I was told to put aside the better part of a day for the process. So I loaded up a satchel with pens, sketchbook, diary, cell-phone, iPod and a non-fiction book (the last is just for show – I love skimming the salon's back issues of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar more than anything) and resigned myself to a day in which I would do absolutely nothing productive or creative. Bliss.

wow! I can't wait to see how it looks when it is done! I can't imagine you as a blonde.
funny thing is I just went from blonde to black and red (and pink and copper) must be a time for change..

it's wonderful to indulge yourself occasionally and be pampered. and good for you too!

Platinum will look really intense on you. I cant wait to see.

I am almost jet black as well..and have this dream of going platinum.

Would you do it also when your hair would be long ?

Please, please, kindly please - show yourself!;-)
