The Secret Life of Melanie O.

My evil twin
So, I decided that this year, with the change of the seasons, that I'd change my hair color. I've gone back to basics and it's now just about where my natural hair color should be - but I'm not sure if it's right for me any more. It brings out the green in my eyes, but now I have very piercing eyes and I'm worried that strange dogs will growl at me and attack me. (Don't laugh - this has happened before.)

It's not that I dislike dark hair - I love it - on other women.

Dan's says I am now my evil twin. I'm dark and mysterious. I don't know if I want to be dark and mysterious. It's taken this long to figure out who I am. I'm not sure I want to be a mystery any more. Besides - changing ones hair color is expensive - half my wardrobe and makeup doesn't work any more.

I'll give it a little more time and see if this grows on me. If not, I may go back to my blonde self. It's strange that I feel really out of my skin at the moment.

    Hi Aunt Melanie! I must say that although you make a rockin' blonde, I think it is better to stay within the range of one's natural hair color. And it does bring out your eyes. I don't think you look "dark and mysterious." You look like yourself, and not "some other beautiful woman" (to quote Stevie Nicks). I showed a couple pictures of you to a friend of mine and she said that you look better as a brunette. So give it a try. It doesn't look bad.

    You're right: your eyes are really striking!

    I like the brown hair a lot. I think you stay brown and just go buy wigs. C'mon! Get them on eBay! hahahaha!!
