(pls for the love of dog just indulge me) havent totally recognized myself in the mirror the last couple days but weirdly i’ve felt more like myself on the inside 💛 haven’t felt that since @colormebrian bleached my hair 2 summers ago. hair alllways says something about a person... and hair usually means a lot more to a person than you think. for a million different reasons. when @colormebrian turned my hair white 2 summers ago, it was because i desperately needed to show myself that i didnt have to live up to neon expectations. i needed a blank canvas, to learn myself and express the bleakness i was feeling at the time. lately, i’d been feeling like it was time for change again. this time i wanted to do something i’d never done before. my “natural” color. it was time to not only say goodbye to After Laughter but to show myself that i can welcome a new chapter of life and existence on this strange planet. alright well, here i go! 🐣. . . bc im wordy af, lemme just add - @colormebrian i love you so damn much and im so thankful for your friendship and how you have helped me find meaning in the art of self-expression. you are a hair wizard. (excited for @gooddyeyoung stuff).
ringing in a new era of @gooddyeyoung 💥🌈 here’s me with a bunch of GDY packaging prototypes 8 months ago. major thx to Jordan & Carl @helloluum for bringing our aesthetic dreams to life.. . here’s what’s new (so far🙂): . • new look! • bigger volume! (5oz of semi-perm color per tube.) • improved formulas! (based on feedback. for example- Riot is now a more red-based orange 🍊.)
some pictures i keep in my phone, of moments and things inside my home that bring me joy... or reflect my personality. ive spent a year making a little home for myself from scratch. filled with art by friends or collected pieces that mean so much to me. everything has a story. ive cried in it, laughed in it, drank myself silly in it, sang at the top of my lungs in it, made dinner for 1 (well, 2 if you count Alf - and actually, i do) in it... and yet ive never spent more than a few weeks in it at once. now im going home for a long time. ready to heal better and live there for real. thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
