Will Chez Bez Really Go Blonde Today?

Seriously considering it. Well, it worked for that Casino Royale guy.

It might just come down to how much money it'll set me back.

News at eleven.

[Update: Wow! Hair coloring is expensive stuff. I got it cut short today but the color remains the same. I can't imagine dropping that kind of dough on my hair when I could buy so many beers with that money instead.]

If I knew what you looked like in real life (insert guilt trip here), I'd be happy to advise you.

Guilt aside, and though there are exeptions, I think most dark complected guys that go blonde end up looking kind of gay clubby/wannabe rocker/Barbie Girl video (not that any of those are bad on their own, but all mixed together...different story)- sorta like Billie Joe Armstrong did in the 90s. You may have the skin tone to pull it off, though.

'...that casino royale guy.' For shame! Daniel Craig is a big star in Britain. Might be something to do with the swimshorts...

ooooooh - Daniel Craig in the swim shorts - oooooooh

I can die happy not that I've had that mental image again.

Hey, hey, hey. I know I started it, but...

A little less Daniel Craig talk and a bit more focus on the star of this blog. This ain't Chez Craig, ok?

Actually, I'll give you that swimshort scene. I'm straight, but I think even I may have gasped at that sight...and then I did some sit-ups when I got home...and then I gave up and got a beer.

OK... for what it's worth... one of my best longtime friends did my hair for years (I am a natural blonde who went darker in my twenties). She has done hair and makeup for thousands of celebrities and media types for many years.

When she relocated - and after we had had some trouble getting my shade exactly right - she pointed me in the direction of the L'oreal section of the hair color aisle and said I could have been doing that for years with nearly the same results. (And, naturally, less $$.)

The Natural Match is terrific (and no peroxide so it doesn't stink) and is what I use now, but I don't think you can do that one since you want to go from really dark to really light. As my friend said, you can't go wrong with their Preference, but if you're really wanting to go major platinum get the Preference Les Blondissimes (sp?). It'll be where the Preference is, but in a lighter, yellowish/whitish box. And will probably be around ten bucks.

Off the shelf hair color may not be the "in" thing these days but seeing as how my friend's done Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, and host of other such folks and she's recommending L'oreal - good enough for moi, and my checkbook likes it.

I say don't go blonde!

But more importantly, what does your wife think? What about your kids?

I'm dying to go purple again, but hubby doesn't want me to. =(

CHEZ BEZ said...

Thanks. Wife supports me on it, but I'm pretty much over it for now. I may do it later, but for now I'm happy just to keep it dark.

Purple? There have got to be pics out there that you would love to share...

Do it while you got it.

I'd pretty much have to spraypaint my head if zI wanted to change my color now...

Leesa said...

Would have been fun to see :)

All pictures of that time period in my life have been destroyed to protect the innocent!

Honestly, I don't seem to have any pics of myself with my purple hair, but god knows there must be one somewhere.
