Is the blonde a curse?
Tue, 11-08-2005 - 11:28am
I did my hair blonde because it matched my bronze complexion. That was the only reason why. I've seen diva's like Beyonce do it and Lil Kim do it and made it look fierce. I'm not a copycat but I was inspired by the platinum blonde look breaking the racial barrier of just being for Caucasion women. Now all my friends and even strangers assume I am a stripper or in the adult industry one way or another. Men assume I'm easy and say I got that Pamela Anderson thing going. I was wondering what is the problem with all these wolves coming at me like this. My boyfriend said it is the blonde hair. Is blonde hair really such a huge deal? I think it's ridiculous, but I'm starting to think my boyfriend is right. If it is the blonde hair, what kind of color would make me look sexy but not too erotic and give people the wrong impression?

Well, I'm a blonde and I don't get that, it may just be that you are a beautiful and desirous woman. ;-)

Just my 2 cents but if someone is making rude remarks to you because of your hair they're not worth your time.

I'm sorry there are hurtful people in your world. (hugs)

Hey chicacutie, welcome to Get A Makeover board.

I have blonde highlights in my hair. Here's what I think act smarter than everyone gives you credit for and then they won't think of you as just another dumb blonde. You could do red, brown or even a honey blonde too. I'm sorry that people are treating you so rudely because you want to be blonde. Lots of HUGS!!!! : )
