I have to admit, before parenthood I was a wild child. Tattoos, piercings all over the place and my hair was never a normal color. As I got older and realized I couldn’t work at Hot Topic all my life, and the Indian Motorcycle dealership I worked at went under I stripped my hair back to brown and took out all the piercings in my face. It was a sad day, but I didn’t look back.
Now I am going through a Mom-Life crisis. I look at old pictures and in an attempt to reclaim a little bit of my youth I want to rebel. Of course I am not going to go out and invest in facial piercings my daughter will only attempt to rip out while playing with me, but pink is the word on the street.
What do I mean by pink?
I figured it is summer time and I work from home so why not?
Live a little and make my kids think I am some form of cool since recently I really have lost my cool mom status according to my four year old. Four year old’s today!
Thus far since I returned home from the salon yesterday afternoon I have seemed to get rave reviews. My husband couldn’t really care less what I do with my hair as long as I am happy with it, and the kids, well… I guess it wasn’t bright or crazy enough for them because they barely noticed.
As for my friends, everyone thinks it looks kick ass. Which is exactly what I was going for… Kick-ass cool mom hair.
So I just have to get out there and ask… Moms! Especially those who work outside of the home.
What do you do when you get the itch to do something wild and crazy like this?
Do you work in an office that would accept a little extreme hair coloring?
Or do you have to run out and and get a tattoo you could hide?
