Me and my red hair crush

When I was 9 we finally got cable tv and I was allowed to watch mtv, and that's how it started. I was crazy about Shirley Manson's look in the 'only happy when it rains' video. You could say that she was my first real idol, and I wanted to look just like her. Cheesy isn't it :) My mother used henna as well, so I started begging her for red hair. Since henna is natural and doesn't damage your hair, she agreed. It turned out a lovely shade of dark muted copper. Some mean kids made fun of me, but I figured that they were just stupid and had bad taste. I loved it!

When I was 14, I dyed it copper again until I turned 16, and I went back to red again when I was 19, and had it either copper, deep red, or faded reddish brown ever since. Last year I bleached my hair, but it is a lot of work touching up my roots and I'm overly sensitive to the bleach. My hair really needs some rest, but in a while I will be going back to my natural ashy brown, and then I'll switch back to red :)

Here's some pictures from a hairstyle magazine I have lying around. The girl with the fringe (from the Goldwell maxreds series) has the cutest hairstyle ever!

What do you think about this hairstyle?
And who else loves Garbage?
