This week we are talking about hair. Yes, hair.
Is it just the stuff growing out of our heads, a mere byproduct of dead cells? Or is it more than that?
Meet Lea Flego. Here are her thoughts on hair.
Natural hair color/style:
A mixture of brown, blond and auburn. The texture is thick and kinda wavy, and when brushed it then it becomes frizz with a mind of its own!
Most memorable hair transformations:
I have dyed my hair so many times! Red, blue, pink. But the two most memorable were when I chopped it all off and dyed it black with red bangs and then when I got an aline and bleached it platinum. I miss those days.
The platinum hair was definitely iconic. That’s who everyone knew me as. My boyfriend at the time called me his “sassy girlfriend,” but I considered myself to be outgoing, confident and fun because of my hair. I felt so cool.
If Lea lost her hair:
I have thought about it. I would be very sad at first and feel less like a woman, but then I think I would develop an affinity for colorful scarves and feel better.
An image of hair:
Hair is the palate I use to represent myself from day to day. Do I want to have it up and functional, or down, falling around my breasts? When my hair looks great, I feel better about myself.
