Since Nadine opened up such a fabulous discussion about making huge changes to her hair, I thought I’d keep the ball rolling with today’s poll!
Most appearance-related changes are gradual. Your body shifts and you adjust your style accordingly. Your hair goes gray over many years. You decide you’re stuck in a style rut, and begin making different shopping and dressing choices over a long period of time.
But SOME changes are drastic. You give birth to a wonderful baby, and are suddenly presented with a body that feels entirely new. You get sick of your long locks and shave your head, or get sick of your blonde hair and dye it black. Your sister calls Stacy and Clinton and you’re thrown into the What Not to Wear machine. (I’d LOVE to know if anyone who reads has had that experience!) Or, slightly less traumatic, you hire a personal stylist to help you overhaul your style and are suddenly wearing your same clothes in drastically different ways. You get a makeup lesson at the department store counter and, overnight, you’re a daily lipstick and blush wearer. These things do happen!
Have you ever made drastic, overnight changes to your style or appearance? What prompted them? Were you pleased with the results? How did the people around you react? How did you respond? Do big changes in appearance thrill you, or do you prefer to approach change slowly and gradually?
