I like your purple hair!!!

October 09, 2012

It's may be hard to see in my picture, but I've been coloring the front of my hair purple for about a year and getting tons of "I like your purple hair!" everywhere I go - on the street, in stores, at social and business events........ And I hear it from teenagers to seniors and everyone in between. 

Here's the back story: my jewelry was in a gallery here in Albuquerque and one of the owners had a tuft of orange in the front of her very short hairdo. Every time I spoke to her, my eyes went to the tuft of hair and I just thought it was really great looking and artistic. So I asked if she minded if I stole her idea but used purple instead. She said "Go for it."

So about a year later (!) I walked into Sally's Beauty Supply and got temporary purple hair color that I refresh about once a week. 

I've had so much fun seeing the look on people's faces when they notice my hair. And I've met so many interesting people and have had some great conversations.

Well, maybe purple hair is not for you, but you do want to stand out in a crowd. A statement piece of jewelry will do just that. Check out my handmade jewelry collections and see what pieces you like that will cause heads to turn.

Before moving to Albuquerque over 16 years ago, I tried to pair down my belongings while still living in Atlanta, determined to make a "clean" start in my new home in the Southwest. I took bags and bags of things to local charities and disposed of tons of "stuff" collected over the years.
