Around 5 years ago I decided to put some purple streaks in my hair to justify that I was a free spirit. After my beautician blew my hair dry I looked in the mirror and said “This is a really pretty color of bluish purple.” It really was a pretty color. The problem was that it was’t a couple of streaks. It was almost a full head. I left the beauty shop and went to my Grandson’s baseball game. . I was laughing so hard because I really thought it was just too much. The interesting thing is that I got compliments on it. I called my beautician back and she did it over again the next day. It is fun doing things on a whim just to feel that freedom it gives you. You just have to do something out- landish once in a while. It is good for the soul.
