- It's okay to be a brunette.
- Men don't make passes at girls that wear glasses? FALSE.
For yearrrssss I dyed the hell out of my hair. I dyed it within an inch of it's life. (it was falling out in chunks the night before my senior prom. HORROR.)
But for some reason, it wasn't until watching 30 Rock that I stopped looking at my own natural brown hair color as "poopy" or "dirty looking" and actually embraced it as a legitimate hair color.
(I assumed my hair was still brown, anyway. I had been dying it for the past ten years without stopping, so who could be sure anymore?)
It also helped that I was getting just a bit earthy-crunchy, and I knew full well that the chemicals in my hairdye were no good for me. (Neither were the chemicals in soda, or cigarettes...)
So, I dyed my hair back to my natural color. And then I stopped dying. Cold turkey.
Bonus tip? Brunettes are taken more seriously in the workplace.
As far as glasses go? Glasses to me are just...blah. I'm not particularly fond of them on other people, and I downright hate them on me.
But even though Tina Fey doesn't "need" her glasses (she wore them only to see the cue cards on SNL, and they became her trademark) she still wears them.
And I hear a lot of people are into that "hot librarian" look.
And I guess maybe they don't look that bad...
See, the thing that pisses me off is that after 11 years of wearing contacts, my eyes have decided that they have had enough. They get itchy and irritated after only a few hours. It sucks.
And of course I can't afford LASIK. So instead, I wear my glasses pretty much 95% of the time. If I know I'm meeting someone new, going to a party or an event where I want to make a good impression (or if I think I might be photographed) I will usually wear my contacts.
Oh, and during the summer when I want to wear my sunglasses. Contacts time.
So, Tina Fey is awesome and she has brown hair and glasses. And I'm kind of Liz Lemon, so I might as well look the part...
