What is with the purple hair in Krautland these days. Its an epidemic and holds to no one demographic. I can almost understand the widespread abuse of the fauxhawk, but the purple hair takes things too far.
Old ladies with eggplant hair, young women and older mothers with the similar color – its not the same since the original color tends to be lighter in the older women. The only difference seems to be the original color and how long its been since a touch up. A primer: If you have very dark brown or black hair and you want to add a hint of purple, well, fine, whatever. I think it looks horrible, but its acceptable. I’m not even going to touch the match your hair to your complexion topic. Its a lost cause in these parts. The younger teens seem obsessed with the pitch black, but really, they are the ones that can get away with it. Blame it on youthful ignorance.
People. Its not okay. Find your bliss and all that. Blah, blah, blah, but at least do it completely. I know all about roots. I know that it can be a while before your colorist can fit you in, but really, 2 inches of gray and 7 inches of variegated purple? Is this the look you’re going for? Really? You already have to deal with ugly shoes, are you sure you want to add to those fashion crimes?
I don’t care if you call it aubergine, eggplant or melongene; it’s purple, a dark purple that makes me think of salting and draining for an hour to reduce inherent bitterness. I’m tempted to stick a green cap on your head and complete the look. At least it would cover the roots.
And perhaps, you might want to read about eggplant before you decide to use it as a personal color choice. Hmm. Maybe I should start using it as my personal color choice. Mad, bitter and high maintenance. Huh. Well, never-mind. Just stop using it for your hair.
Jesus, I’m getting old and cranky. I’m going to go play with my kitten who is, by the way, over his moving issues and in full play-until-he-passes-out-on-my-lap phase.
I love kittens.
