My fiery red mane from 2011 (I miss it)

Dear [new] friends,
This is what I looked like for a while last year. I MISS this hair. (And apparently so do all my neighbors!)  I don't so much miss the maintenance/upkeep & cost, but the nicknames that I got from friends & strangers were pretty lovable. Especially being called Ariel -from The Little Mermaid- by a few kids at the airport and grocery stores. 
I took so many cell phone pictures!
I admit: I was a huge narcissist when I had this hair! It was so rad.
The following pictures c/o Royal Flush Photography, who randomly approached me on 5th Avenue in NYC one day and asked if he could 'shoot' me. It was the hair. Which was fading at this point.
Central Park - June 2011
I seriously should have redyed it for the shoot. I hated it in this shade.
closeup of my tattoos (I love Halloween, zombies, bats & my black cat tribute to my baby Danzig)
And here's a picture of what my hair looked like right before I went really red (as shown above). 
I loved both colors. I have a ton of "my favorite red head moment" pictures, but I'll stop here. I just wanted to share this with you, so it's no surprise if I go wild on my head again this year. I'm so tempted.
Um...by the way, it's snowing here! WTFUDGE. 

Love & bearhugs,
Roni

  1. I experimented with red hair a few years back, it was dreadful on me! However, I absolutely adore it on you!

    I will be in NYC late March, but that is all I know for the time being. As soon as I find out more, I will let you know. Meeting blog friends in real life would be fantastic!

    1. I want to see more pictures of you in general, Tori! Post some, even if they're oldies (but goodies). Pweez :) The only thing I didn't appreciate from my red hair was how the bleach fried it. My hair still hasn't recovered from that, which is why I'm like "might as well just keep dying it".
      Yay to your March trip! I hope we have time to meet up.

  2. You know I adore red hair! I love it on you. I love the top pic, but honestly the one of you and Mikey is my favorite. ♥

    I'm so jelly of the snow right now!

    1. Thanks, babe. ♥
      Yeah I think I really really really wanna go back to the bottom picture hair color again. At least for now, and for a while. Then I'll figure out if I wanna go back to the Raggedy Ann/Ariel color.

  3. I miss your red hair!! And now would be such a great time to do it because we'd both be red heads!! LOL..That color truly looks so great on you and with your style it made everything you wore come to life in a whole 'nother way lol..you could've worn a garbage bag everyday with that hair and still looked like the raddest girl in the tri-state..if you don't bring back the red hair in 2012, I will die a little inside..almost as much as I would if JC stopped making Litas (major!!) lol........Oh speaking of shoes, Bakers shoes looked at my blog! And they said "glad you finally found your red pumps" :)..I thought that was so sweet.. but if JC ever looks at my blog I'll totally faint! lol

    1. First off, THANK YOU for all the super duper sweet compliments! I love you! And I would love for us to have matching red hairsss. :)

      Dude, that's awesome that they commented on your blog. Holy crap, I'd faint if JC commented on YOUR blog! haha

    2. awww no problem, Love you too!!..and yeah that would be awesome!!! Call Lissi, it's time for a bleach session :) .....

      Yeahhh I had posted the link to my blog under a picture i posted on their fb page just with "I <3 the Alecia"..and they commented with that under the pic..I was like o shhhz they looked at my blog :).......and LOL I know right!! ...Solestruck posted a pic on their homepage this week from this girls blog AND sent her a pair of JC Damsels for free bc they liked her blog. I forgot the name of her blog but it is really nice.

    3. Dude, get this: Lissi has never dyed her hair. I was shocked when she told me! LOL I told her not to even bother dying it now. When I meet someone who has virgin hair I applaud them for never having given in to temptation and tell them not to ruin it with bleach. You know?
      And that's so awesome. Yeah, I think bloggers with a solid following are the ones that get free stuff. They're such lucky beezies. I want free stuff. :)

    4. What? wow, that's awesome!! It's rare I meet people who haven't dyed their hair..I must admit I'm always the opposite with them ..I'm always like what are you waiting for?? You'd look awesome with this color or that color!! LOL, Idk I just feel like everyone should try everything once (that's if they want to do it)......And yeahhh isn't that lucky! I want free shoes!! hmpph!

    1. Aw thanks, Ruby!!! I've missed you in the blogworld, girl. It's so funny cause all of Lissi's girls miss my red hair. Isaira even draws me with red hair when she's coloring. I have one of her pictures hanging in my closet. It's so cute!
      I heard your hair is red right now. I wish I could have seen it before you get rid of it. My favorite was the blue you had your hair when we first met. I love that. Oooh and purple!

    3. Ruby!! Definitely let me know when you're upstairs next. I HATE when I miss seeing you. :( Maybe we can dye our hairs together.

  5. HOLY CRAP. That is some amazing hair right there. And your shoes are badass. How did you keep your hair so long AND so colourful? I had pink hair a few months ago and most of it broke off from bleaching the absolute shit out of it. Poor hair. And do I spy a cat-print shirt? I think I dooo!

    1. I did have to get my dead ends cut every month (when I kept on top of that), but I kept telling them I wanted to keep my length. I can see where the ends were SO dead in that closeup picture of me. I obviously needed to cut right there.
      And yes! That's my black cat tunic. I love it! :) I actually wore it again the other day and thought of you.

  6. I always knew you were cool but this hair solidifies that. I love it! I wish I had the balls to dye my hair a bold color like that.

    1. Ha, thanks! You could always take baby steps and try some crazy colored streakage.

  7. Lovely post! I love red hair. Used to have it too, and I loved being called Ariel, it's a shame it's gone and I somehow can't force myself to dye it again.

    Shall we follow each other?

    1. Thanks! Being mistaken for Ariel by little kids is probably the coolest/silliest thing ever, don't you think?! :) And yeah I haven't been able to do it again because I just think of the bleach and my poor hair and all it suffered between all the good times from having that color. We'll see if I do it again.

  11. Your hair looked great bright red. I feel like not a lot of people can pull this color off. I really wish I had the guts to dye my hair purple of blue. Eeep! Maybe one day. Please post any new colors if you do :]

    1. Deep purple is so pretty, blue is nice too and not as noticeably "crazy". I'll definitely post some pics if I dye it again. :)
