Honestly, I didn't start feeling great about my hair colour until I was in my late 20s. I became single around that time after a 10-year relationship and discovered that some women really find red hair attractive. That was a huge confidence boost and I started to really appreciate the magical power of my orange locks!
Its been a love hate for me. A 10 year old wishing she was just like everyone else. To the 14 year old who had her hair razor cut by her mother to make it curly!!!! Who does that??? To the 14 year old eho one week later had a black flat top 🤣. Turning 18 was when things changed for me. I had a better sense of self and LOVED being different. Wouldnt be anything else EVER!!!
How does razor cutting work to make curly hair? 🤔
Hahaha... it doesnt. She read it somewhere way back when and thought she should give it a try. Mind you.... it was always curly!!!
20s for sure. I colored my hair extensively until I became a mom and didn't have the extra time or money. I love it now!!
I've never had an issue with my red hair, I did get poked fun of because of it as a child, but it was never me who had any issues 🤣
I had a problem with one girl in primary school. Looking back now though... i realise she was the one with the issues. But when you are young you just want to fit in. It can be tough.
I got bullied several times for my hair colour. It even happened to me in the past 5 years, twice I've been in fights because some drunk idiots have given me ginger abuse. I put it down to them just wanting a fight regardless and picking on the most obvious thing, I don't take it personally any more.
I was always comfortable with my hair. But I was self conscious about my pale legs. I didn't wear shorts, skirts, or dresses throughout my teens and early 20s.
I know that feeling Katie. Took me decades to embrace pale!
Honesty my hair was about 14 but my skin wasn't untill I was 28 or so , its strange that I spent yeas thinking if I just tanned a little I would look better, wasn't till I got to my late 20's that I realised that my skin tone suits my hair shade perfectly, I am exactly as I should be.
I've always been confidante in my skin and proud of my color. My whole life I've been complimented on my flawless alabaster skin and curly red hair, usually by the older generations. I used to work and a bunch of veterans and they would share stories about their youth and war time. I was even told, on a number of occasions, that if there wasn't a huge age gap I would have been fought over.
