Heads Up

Two Part Spoiler Alert:

One, this kid is going to be Poseidon for Trick or Treat. She has worked incredibly hard on her costume, which you'll see later, and requested that her hair be dyed black because Poseidon apparently did not have honey-colored hair. Who knew?

Two, don't look now. Carrie's doing something that could be considered *gasp* girly!

Take a good look at this makeup-free, body-art-free, piercing-free thirteen and a half year old face and give me a good reason why she shouldn't be allowed to dye her hair.

I'll wait.

That's what I thought. So away we go! This post is brought to you by Clairol's Natural Instincts Black, which is not permanent and will wash out by Christmas, probably. Dye's in under the shower cap and timer is set for 10 minutes. 

First rinse done, conditioner on and setting in.

Getting blown away...

Blowdryer photobomber.

The finished product. Surprisingly, it still had a lot of her natural red highlights visible and goes better with her eyebrows and eyelashes than I had anticipated. She is absolutely delighted, which makes me happy. I can't wait to see the entire Halloween getup later tonight! Stand by!
