A Streak Of Genius?
Ever since I saw Proenza Schouler’s show back in September, I’ve been secretly contemplating dying my hair green or purple for the day. Forget that the last time I entertained similarly questionable thoughts, I was still in high school; the surfer-girls-gone-bad who walked the Proenza runway looked so groovy with their rainbow-colored streaks that I’m almost convinced that showing up at the office in a shade of aubergine instead of my usual, more low-key highlights is totally legit. But then reality sets in and I lose my nerve. Today, however, the voices in my head are back. “Halloween is quickly approaching,” they’re saying. “Don’t you want to match your daughter’s purple tutu with a splash of color of your own?” And I do! So tomorrow, I will be purchasing a can of Fun Colors Hairspray and giving it a go. Whether or not the streaks stay in on Monday remains to be seen.
