So I tried out being blonde...

I've been looking at a lot of Sakurina pictures the last couple of days and made the plunge and purchased a blonde wig. I decided to get one that was particularly golden blonde in color to play better with my skin tone since I'm warm toned. So did it work out for me?

I'm still kind of in shock to see me like this, but actually I've gotten a lot of positive feedback so far on it. I've been brunette for so long I don't think I could've seen myself in any other color LOL But the more I see it the more I like it. Not sure if I want to make a permanent change into that color though.

    1. I can't imagine how high maintenance blonde hair is! The only time when I dyed my hair blonde was in middle school and I was in the middle of different processes of my hair but didn't finish it the night before LOL I wish I had the guts to be blonde all the time like you ;D

  5. I actually think that hairstyle (and color) but hairstyle for sure suites you soooo well. You should try parting your hair like that sometime!

    1. Thank you! I'm actually self-conscious about parting my hair at all for the past few years since I have a widow's peak and totally think I have a huge forehead.

  7. Really cute! You should definitely experiment more while you're young!! I really love the lip color you wore. It goes well with the blonde. :D

    1. Thank you! I'm contemplating whether I should take the plunge and go blonde permanently, for a bit anyways. I've gotten so used to being brunette for most of my life it'd be interesting to be a blonde like you!

      Also thanks for the compliment about the lip color! It's really cheap since it's a Rimmel lipstick and the wear on it is really good. The only thing I don't like is that it feels kind of gritty when on the lips, but you can't see it when worn.

  8. I love it! I think that dying it would be a hassle though, with constant root touch ups and stuff. The wig looks really natural, I wouldn't have guessed!

    1. I've definitely considered that as a factor for not going blonde, but also because I'm so content with being a brunette! The wig quality surprised me as well, I just have to learn how to deal with the top of the wig being a bit frizzy/fitting weird on my head.

  11. It doesn't look half bad =D But I'd be careful...I had a friend who everyone said looked fantastic with a blonde wig, but when she actually dyed her hair the same color, it came out quite differently and her hair got pretty damaged.

    1. That's some good advice! I'll definitely think about it in case I ever decide to really become blonde.
