I Was First
Look. Everyone who is anyone has blue hair.
And frankly, it annoys the crap outta me. Because I’ve had blue hair for like, four years. Since 2011.
In 2011 everyone who dyed their hair a funky color dyed it pink. I was going to SCBWI-LA where I would meet many fab people, including people who I had become Twitter friends with. I wanted to be easily recognizable.
After I got home, I could’ve let it grow out. But I just like the blue hair—it’s not all blue, just a wide swath of it. I am not trying nor have I ever tried to cover up my gray. It is still clearly visible.
Anyway. I do not want people to think I am following a trend—sort of defeats the purpose of dying your hair a wild color, doesn’t it? So…
AMERICA! My hair was blue before the Kardashians even THOUGHT about dying their hair blue!
