Dear Helen Hartman,
It’s time for a touch up and I am thinking of going blonde but not sure about all the clichés.
Love to know what you think of blonde as a color option
Dear Loved One
Blonde is not a color option – it’s a lifestyle!
|"You know if you stopped chain smoking and started wearing shoes you could actually walk for yourself sometimes." "Walk? That's so cute. I don't have to walk, silly. I'm blonde."|
Helen was born blonde (later became what is not so generously called Dishwater Blonde but what she calls Blah-nde)
|The paparazzi problems started early. Just take the photo and move along. Someday everyone will be wearing their bangs like this, btw.|
Hubby is blond. Children as well. So she takes all those blonde jokes seriously.
Oh, all right, I don’t take anything seriously. Maybe that’s the blonde in me? They ARE said to have more fun. So if you want to be one of ‘us’ maybe you should ask yourself some questions.
Are you the fun loving sort, up for any new adventure?
|Wheee. Helen asked if I'd like to be on a post and so I ran right out and tried it. It's okay but I still don't get why Helen likes posting so much.|
Not afraid to tell people what you want?
|"Listen here, Mr. Salesman. When you sold me this machine you promised it would help me get my work done twice as fast but I can't type a darned thing on it!"|
Do you sometimes feel the rules are made for others and don't apply to you?
|If you lick one more M&M to try to toss it and get it to stick in my hair, young lady, I swear I will... why are all those people honking? Haven't they ever seen a Mama teach her child manners before? |

Are you sometimes told you're not the sharpest crayon in the box - which is okay with you because you only use markers.
|"Oh, yes, these will work wonders to help me see if that sneaky kid is sticking candy in my hair or not. I can't wait to get in the car and try them!"|
Are you aware that when you go blonde the world may actually begin to revolve around you?
|The portable cabana, perfect for the times when I have to slip into something appropriate for going all blonde on someones @$$.|
Prepared to draw attention where ever you go?
|"I can see you can't help staring and I know what you're asking yourself. The answer is, yes, I am a natural blonde."|
If you answered yes to these questions… then you are going to be fine no matter what color your hair.
If you answered no to most of these questions then hair color is not your biggest issue. Come on, who doesn’t want to have fun telling people the world revolves around you where ever you go?
As I often do I will return to my mother, Maxine’s advice on hair color: Why not? It’s just hair, you can always change it back. Or wear a wig.
|Mom in her wig. The funny thing was, it looked pretty much like her real hair, only with blonde highlights. They were hamming it up trying to look old fashiondy.|
|Go For It!|
Life is too short to have never been blonde!
