I am an imposter.


I am not a redhead.
If I am ever complemented while in public it is usually for my hair and for some reason I feel bad that I am being complemented on something false so I usually tell the person thank you but it is not really this red. 
Tonight a friend and I went out to dinner and as we were leaving I felt a tap on my shoulder, I turn around and standing behind me is a cute redheaded boy.  I smiled at him and he smiles back then shyly says to me that he likes my hair, but he said it in such as if he were giving me some secret handshake for a club he thinks we both belong to.  He seemed sorta proud, like he met someone from his same tribe or lost culture that few are apart of.  I felt bad and I couldn't make eye contact with him after that and quickly said thanks and shuffled away into the darkness. 
I just wanted to let the world know, that my hair is great but it is not my own, the truth is, is that I do not know the true color of my hair and I am not willing to find out.

for what its worth, it looks GREAT on you, and seriously, who cares if its fake? I think the fact that you were THERE with AWESOME hair was good for the little tyke. maybe he's been having a rough time loving his, you know?

sure its not real but life isn't just about hair. As long as you are living and having fun, there's no need to feel guilty!

Am sure ur real hair is nice too :)

I still think you are blonde, I love your red hair, but in my mind you will always be blonde.

That is funny tho, I think there is a secret red head club, and they only intermarry too.

I just think he thought he had a shot at a pretty girl because red heads seem to attract each other.

I understand cause I used to wear aqua colored contacts when I was a teenager and got tons of complements on my eye color. Always felt awkward about it.

Anyhow, I think the real compliment is that ALL of the hair colors that you've chosen have looked lovely on you. So you have great taste and great skin tone that can pull it off :) Love you!

It looks so natural. How do you get it that color? I've have tried multiple times and never get that shade. I love it and I'm terribly jealous!

I had NO idea. You ARE a redhead. Just haven't always been. You may even have an extra point in the redhead world because you CHOSE it.

ive seen you blonde, brunette and with red hair and i think you look best with red hair. so work it! have you watched mad men? the red head girl in the show is not really a red head, and yet she looks amazing. x

You are so cute and so beautiful at the same time. I LOVE the red but in my book you can do no wrong so no matter what color you go with, it's grand. I also think that you should just own it. Right now you ARE a red head. No ifs ands or butts. Wait, buts.

It looks beautiful though, how often do you have to have it done to keep your color?
