It's amazing what a different hair colour, style, shaped eyebrows and dark eyelashes will do for your self-confidence.
After $101, I walked out of my hairdresser with dark brown hair, black eyelashes and decent eyebrows (the last two I've done many a time before). My hair was wet and down. On the way home it dried, and 'fluffed' a bit. The first chance I got to look at myself with dry brown hair was at home.
I'm actually pretty. I have gorgeous eyelashes, blue eyes, curly hair that while it drives me nuts I like, clear-ish skin and freckles that make me look healthy. I had to stare for at least a minute at myself. I'm actually pretty.
So I've been doing the Josh Abercrombie strut around my house in a singlet and my favourite pants, waiting for my lack of self esteem to come crashing down and slap me upside the head, screaming "How the fuck do you think this, you idiot? You're double the weight of your best friend, your favourite shirt is the only one that doesn't make you look like a beached whale, you have three chins and your own mother hates the way you look!"
...crap. It just did.
