If you haven’t already realised. Well.. FUCK! I’m FUCKING BLOND!
Like ice-platinum fucking blond.
Why? Because why the fuck not?

I’ve been thinking about going blond for ages now, and this summer season with my –no fucks given- attitude I took the big decision.
10th of July ‘18. Miele Hair & Beauty Spa. A ton of bleach and three hours later, I was legally blond.
I have to admit that I don’t know how people do it, but the process was the most painful thing I ever did. My head was literally on fire and it felt like I was burning alive. I also have to admit that when I first saw my face in the mirror, I was petrified. It took some time to get used to it and actually love it.
I went shopping yesterday for some shoots coming up, and it felt as if everything fitted better than before! Generally I think platinum hair take any style to an extra level. On their own they are super stylish and cool. Even if I am daring with my look, I tend to be on the more classical side of things and this hair brings out the more fun and cool side of me! After all, I’m just 24!

All this change (and all the reactions really), got me thinking about individuality and freedom. For the past months, I’ve said it before too, I’m living on a no fucks given lifestyle. And the truth is, I love this new me. I realised that it really doesn’t matter what people think or say or even believe about you. Think about it. It’s crazy. We get overwhelmed by the tribe and lose ourselves into it. What I also realised, it that losing yourself is a must in order to find your true identity. And when you do? It’s fucking awesome. The feeling of being your original-true self is liberating. It sets your free. Sometimes the process of coming to this state is lonely, and scary but believe me when I say this – no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning who you are.
Let me know what you think about my new hair. I’d love to hear your impressions.
Until next time, ice ice baby.
