OK, I think I've decided to put a white streak in my hair.  I figure since it doesn't appear to be going to happen naturally that it wouldn't kill me to sacrifice one lock to the perils of peroxide.  Besides, I look too normal and that's so not me.  The diamond stud in my nose just isn't cutting it anymore... I need more!  I will never grow up, I refuse!!! Muahahahahahaha!

A streak could be very cool - go for it.  Now for acting your age.......here's a test to determine your "real" age.

I think you should go ahead and put the white streak in; I think it'll look cool  Grin!

Do you think diamond studs in the nose are odd? That's kind of funny actually! Lots of people have them here, including me...  Tongue

This is what my thing said when I took the test:

"Your score is 10!


6-10: You act like you're in your 30s. If this is near your actual age, congratulations! If you're really 20, loosen up--there is plenty of time to be mature. But there isn't always plenty of time to have fun."

LOL!!!!! I'm 15!!

No, *I* don't think it's odd, and lots of people have them here too (though I'm sure not nearly as many as in Bangladesh!)... just not too many 43 year old women have them :)

Just remember, Rapunzel.........you are an artist.  Artists are allowed, no expected to be a bit excentric.  You must maintain the "proper" image as an artist.   Grin

I think the streak would help with "that" image - so go for it.   

[By the way - are you feeling better?]

Glad you are feeling better.  Get plenty of rest so you don't have a relapse.

Did you decide to put the white streak in?  We need pictures!

I did, but it's only blonde so far.  I still have to do the toner to get it white and then I have to get my digital camera back before I can do any pics.  I'm lovin' it so far!

I love diamond studs! You should really get one! And yep, that streak does sound cool. When I was 12 I got one single blonde streak in the underside of my hair... hardly noticible but it was there! Mum did it for me so that I wouldn't get tempted to cut my hair off  Wink

Go for the diamond!  If you want one that's only a few points big, you can get a 14kt. gold nostril screw for $100 or so.  Or you can do like I did and have one made out of an earring.  Mine's pretty big for a nose ring, about 12 pts.  But hey, if you're gonna do it, do it right ;)

I know Leia said she had hers done with a gun, both times mine was done (I lost my first nose ring before it healed and it closed up on me in a matter of hours), it was done with a needle.  It's only mildly more drama to live through than having your ears done, though the sounds can be, err... interesting.  More of hassle to deal with while it's healing though, and that takes *forever.*

My streak is in my bangs and in the lock of hair that sprouts from behind them, which falls down the left side of my face, goes back and down the left side of the back of my head, or goes over the top of my forehead and down the right side depending on how I have it combed.

White streaks are cool, Rapunzel! I agree with Bikerbraid - an artist is required to challenge aesthetic boundaries so the rest of us sheep have something to bleat about.  Grin

Your motto should be, "How many people can I shock today?"

My great-grandma went pure white in her '50s, I hope I got those genes!

/Kate

P.S. I got a 12 on that test, so apparently I'm "aging like fine wine." Or possibly like a forgotten cucumber at the back of the fridge (mushy, whiskery and insipid).
