When I was a kid, I distinctly remember wanting to dye my hair from brown to red.
Back then, no one was really dying their hair the crazy amazing “alternative” colours you’ll see today, like pastels and neons, and completely unnatural colours like blue or green, likely because there weren’t that many options when it came to hair dye formulations.
If they existed, chances are I would’ve been tempted to dye my hair pink or purple (I still haven’t tried!), but since more natural colours were the only visible options, the only colour I was really attracted to as a kid was red.
It’s stunning. Seeing actresses with red hair, especially when paired with green eyes – my always favourite eye-colour, made me super jealous. There’s just something about firey locks that’s practically transfixing.
I had a friend in high school who used to dye her hair red and I totally got why. It’s honestly such a stunning colour.
I should’ve taken advantage of the situation and come up with a creative nickname for her. She definitely came up with one for me, calling me “Eliza Doolittle” every so often.
I definitely would’ve come up with a number of cute/cool/fun ones that I liked then asked her which she liked best if I were to go back in time, because her red hair, while not natural, was a huge part of her aesthetic that I loved, still love, and remember about her to this day.
