Strawberry Blonde is our jam.

My friend Maggie and I have been friends since she moved to Tennessee in 6th grade. With her living in DC and me here in NYC, we’re able to keep in touch quite well. She was in town over the weekend and we started marveling over dinner. We marveled over being newly single, we marveled over nearing the end of our 20s (we’re both 28) and we marveled over having strawberry blonde hair. The reason this is of significance, is that Maggie and I, out of all of our friends, were the girls who wanted our hair as long and as blonde as possible. Especially in high school. I also wanted my lips as shimmery as possible, but that’s a marvel for a different day.

Anyway, we both still have long hair, and we’re both blonde, but it’s funny how you realize something you were all about, was really all wrong for you. Cool blonde is a gross tone on me and my skin, and although Maggie pulled it off nicely, the warmer blonde suits her personality better. Not to mention her hair has never looked shinier.

I’m pro-strawberry blonde. For life.

Do you ever see that person who has definitely had the same hair since high school? Only high school was several decades ago? And you’re like “woah, no one told you!”. And they’re like “I heart scrunchies and banana clips.”.

Anyway, I feel like Maggie and have just escaped that last paragraph by a hair. Maybe I’ll have long wavy wannabe mermaid hair well into my hundreds, and maybe Maggie will have long straight hair with bangs well into hers, but at least we’ve found a suitable tone to take us there.

Is it hard for you to break out of your hair’s comfort zone?

    You two are such beauties!

    My hair will always be a variation on honey blonde with a bit of a sweepy bang thang. Hopefully it will grow past my collar bone… one day!

    The other day I saw a picture and my hair looks so much like it did in HS (bad), but I have an excuse that I’m growing it out (cluelessly). I have no hair comfort zone, I always switch it up :-). I’m so happy that you two get to see each other!!!! Well, and jealous! I like Maggie’s new shade. Your eyes look awesome in that last picture.

    I love to grow my hair long and then chop it all off. I used to dye it all different colors but now I realize I have a beautiful hair color that suits my skin the best. I have some grays peeking through. I pull the few I find, is that bad? Eventually I will have to dye it cause I’m just not down with the gray streaks.

I love reading about life, Piper and all things fashiony. I just want you to know that I think you are really really great and LOVE everything you are putting out there. You are so fun and your writing makes me smile.

    I’m calling you out on the scrunchies and banana clips. We are the same age and that age is no where old enough for us to have had scrunchies in high school! Ha ha ha. Scrunchies were more like elementary school for me (along with poof bangs, of course). When I was in high school, “chunky” highlights and three barrel curling irons were the hot thing.

    Some of my old hs friends are still using both (thanks, facebook, for making me feel all hip and stuff).

    I had waist-length, barely styled wavy hair my whole teenage years and well into my 20′s. Then I went through a break-up, cut my hair to my shoulders and started wearing it curly. I haven’t looked back since!
