Ramona Flowers… the hair. What can I say? Although Scott Pilgrim has graced our bookshelves since 2004 and our DVD players since 2010, that girl's hair still kicks ass. No one is too old to have some fun with their mane. You question me? I used to shake my head when an exuberant retiree sported a bright pink bob, but my perspective has dramatically changed since 2013. I admit that alternative fashion can raise eyebrows, nevertheless, I envy those who are capable of taking those risks. As a teacher I wouldn't dream of dying my hair a drastic shade for fear of losing my job… however, I am curious at what my students would say. My spacers have already sparked various questions amongst the grade 5s, including that of an outraged 10 year old who once asked me, "Who did that to you!? Why!?"
I applaud the ladies who smirk at societal normalities and challenge the face of fashion! I wish I were doing the same. No longer the boring reds, blondes, brunettes, and greys, but bright multi-coloured hues. You go girls!
