Just sayin'... when my therapist saw my new look she asked me how many IQ points I lost going blonde. On the other hand, people in general seem to find me more approachable.

 

Honestly the only two opinions that matter are yours and Patti Anne's. Yours more than hers. Also, couples wig shopping is a hoot. ?

 

Hugs!

Looking very good and this is from a girl who went through about 20 different colors until I hit my red color.Which I have lasted well with!!  https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/gallery/image/13339-my-neighborhood-2/   I say if you think you look fab with it (I think you do) then you own it and your overall feelings make it simply YOU.

Hey now, hate is a little strong. Just a personal preference. I prefer brunette's to blondes and redheads to breathing.

 

Hugs!

I think you look good as a blonde. Show us this same look with your everyday makeup on and I think almost everyone would agree that it’s a very nice look. I want to also mention...to me, it looks just slightly more natural too. Maybe that has more to do with the way it shapes your face.?

 

My Best,

Susan R?

Personally, I think the style and color strongly emphasize your eyes and forehead, giving a more youthful appearance. Can we see this blonde with makeup for the full picture?

What's all the fuss?  Is that not your natural color?  It's you, girl!  Hottie, gonna have all the guys' heads turnin'.

Thank you all.  I wasn’t sure as my natural color is a chestnut brown and it looked so foreign to me at first.  Well chestnut brown in my youth. It’s now a crappy grey.  Lol

I do intend to do an everyday makeup and take another picture with natural light and I will post these too.  
Thank again!❤️❤️❤️

I got lucky. As a toddler I had dark brown almost black hair. By the time I got to high school it was a dark medium brown and over the years it continued to get lighter and lighter. By 67 I am blond. Nothing lout of a bottle except fo a blue strip on the left side. Funny thing is I never imagined myself as a blond. I like it.

You look great Shawna!  and with your beautiful eyes and kind heart you'd look great in anything❣️

That style really looks great on you Shawna ?. I feel a lot of warmth and kindness. It's good to try new things out from time to time and bring fresh ideas into your life.

@Shawnaleigh  How dare you dig and find my cut hair. but then again mine had a little more curl to it. LOL. plus I haven't been blonde since I was like 3. My natural color is light to medium brown.

However, Looking good sister. You must have gotten the looks in the family. LOL.

Shawna,

 

It's nice to see the new picture next to the profile picture.

 

The profile picture makes you look more mysterious and a little evil (in a good way).  You look like you've got a secret to share with us.

 

The blond hair makes your eyes pop big time and you look a little more innocent and open.  With the blond hair, I notice how beautiful your eyes are.  With the dark hair, your eyes are kind of the same color, so my focus goes to your smile.  The more I look at it, the more I love the new picture.  Even though it's a closed mouth smile, it looks relaxed.  It looks a little more like someone who wants to know what we think, someone who's eager for input and expecting it to be positive.

@ShawnaLeigh Looks really good. The style of wig is complimentary too.  Not everyone can pull it off. I’m with @Jackie C., I prefer the brunette look, but it’s just my preference. My wife is blonde, so it’s not a very firm preference.  Also as Jackie has said, it’s really only Patti’s and your opinion that matters. 
 

I’ve bleached my hair before, in my youth, I can’t work the blonde, so I’ll stay salt and pepper. Maybe at some point after coming out, I’ll try dyeing it, to hide the gray, but don’t want to draw any focus while i stay closeted. Hugs!

I resisted posting it for about a day, then this morning Shawna said something to the effect of 'I'm surprised you didn't post a response!' That was all it took! LOL!

Shawna,

 

I like it! I think blonde is a very good choice for you.

Wow I am really surprised and happy with all the honest feedback.  I certainly like to comparisons to from my profile picture to this quickie pic I took.  I will be in full daily makeup tomorrow and will snap a pic for this thread to see if it still stands that I am now a blond.  LOL

Thank you all for the feedback.

      About the haircut... maybe you feel like you'd be losing something because this is the first time you'd have it cut short expressly to reveal your gender identity to yourself and others? It could feel like more a point of no return if you're doing it for reasons like that and not only for fashion.   I have long hair again now, but when I went to have my first short haircut with the purpose of masculinizing my image, the hairdresser chickened out and wouldn't cut it as short as I wanted. Definitely show a picture and specify that you want it boyish. If you have nice, long hair some stylists might be disinclined to take it all off. I should have been more insistent. Be specific.

      I caNT BREATHE HAHAHAH MY little sister was playing on the recliner and I am doing school work so I can't really see her, but my stepmom is also sitting on the recliner. SO all I hear, is "Weeeee!" and then a crash (She knocked over her little toy icecream stand) (She is okay) Just the "Weeeee!" followed by a crashed made me laugh so hard xDD

      Chapter IV: A New Hope   So yeah, today's challenge was paperwork! My surgeon has a new hospital affiliation so I needed to fill out absolutely everything about my medical history and sign up with the new system. Some of the questions were really invasive. I mean, why do they want to know my favorite color? And why is it important that they know when I shower?   Getting geared up for the revision surgery on December 16th. No drains and no hospital stay this time. I'll be spending a week out of state mostly by myself in a hotel room with a catheter. I guess with a catheter, you're never REALLY alone, but I expect to fill the time with writing and sketching. In a small way it'll be a relief to not have my wife hovering over me and worrying. There will be a lot of takeout and room service in my future. I'm NOT trekking all over an unfamiliar city with a catheter bag in one hand. I'm just not.   Hugs!

      @MiloR, track that shame down. Somebody taught you to feel it. Find out where it comes from in your life. It could be longstanding. But admittedly, it can sometimes and in certain cases be dangerous presenting how we want to. So separate out completely false shame from fears that have truth in them. Then you can weigh your options more realistically.   @Jandi, re: the internalized transphobia--ugh. It is absolutely a real thing, as you say. I can't believe some of the ugliness that cropped up in me when I first came to this forum. Some of the prejudices and ugly thoughts I had when I read some of the posts. It had to be deeply ingrained and I'm glad to have role models online to show how NOT to go down that road. I had some of it come up when I looked at the reddit transgender positive group. Looking at it enough made me begin to change my thoughts. But I had to become aware of them first. I don't even know where some of this trash came from, but it's probably twisted up with feeling like what I am is wrong or offensive, so I should be offended in turn. Anyway, not to derail Milo's post, just... yeah, internalized transphobia is something I've been forced to look at lately.

      For years and years I thought my need to experience being a woman was deeply shameful and I feared ever telling anyone about it let alone the possibility of going out in the big bad world as a woman. But once I had made the step of revealing this need to my wife and getting help from a therapist and people like in this forum I began to realise that there IS NO SHAME in being transgender and now I am proud to be who and what I am.    My only shame is in having been so afraid of revealing how I needed to be to my wife in all those years and that I caused so much hurt to my wife as a result of the lies and hiding of the truth. It's getting better now and she accepts how I am, although has difficulty supporting me.  But when I am Niamh, I feel no shame, and should never do so again.

      First of all, I totally agree that fear never goes away until you do it and, until one day you look back and think "what was I so scared about?"   I had the same problem of being afraid of losing parts of myself, and needing to taste the waters first. What I did (and still am doing as of today) is to take it in baby steps. I.e. about the hair cut - you go to a hairdresser and get a short cut, even if it still is woman-style. It's a big step but you have not totally crossed the lines. About clothes - you choose a t-shirt and a button down that look masculine, but combine them with feminine pants that hug your hips. You get the idea. And with every thing you try, you pay attention if it feels right or not.    I totally get the feeling of needing to rush into it. But it actually makes it harder. Small steps get you there faster, because you don't have to deal with so much inner resistance. And truth is, no body is gonna blink an eye at a girl with jeans and a shirt in France, the fear is all ours.   Ah! By the way, something that really helps me... because I might be going in the male direction but I'm gayer than gay... Pick the right shoes, and it's the deal. I don't know what's your style (sneakers, boots, whatever works for you). I put on my low cowboy boots and I feel the kingy queen (???)

      Don't worry @Jackie C. 😄 But take this nap if you need it though, it's better to be well-rested 😊 Ah, well thanks for sharing @Jandi it made me laugh, it's a good comic 😄 And I get what you say about the beard, I think it was the same with my makeup for a time, I was hiding behind a ton of lipstick to feel safe. Glad it's behind me.
    • Jandi
      I saw this years ago and had to keep it LOL   For me it was my beard.  I had been hiding behind it most of my life. 
    • Jackie C.
      My fault, I was thinking @Danusia for some reason. Maybe I need a nap. It's been a LONG week. 😜   I know it's only Tuesday. Oh my Goddess...   Hugs!
    • MiloR
      I live in France, but yes. You're probably right  I think I'll just try to relax, those questions are driving me nuts these days. If I go cut my hair people won't say anything, that's very likely, you're perfectly right ^^'
    • Jackie C.
      Probably, but I think we all overthink things in the beginning. While I've never lived in Poland, I'd think you'd be able to get a short man's style if you wanted and nobody would think anything of it. The truth is most people are too tied up in their own lives to pay attention to yours.   Hugs!
    • MiloR
      Hey everyone, thank you for all of your answers, it's greatly appreciated, and it's nice to know fear doesn't last forever... Thing is, I know that a more masculine haircut would help me pass more, but I'm afraid of what it represents... I'm afraid to lose myself with doing so, it might sound silly... Cause it's just a haircut and I've had short hair before... And I don't know, going to a hairdresser and paying more for my haircut than a man because i'm born a girl makes me sick... And I'm afraid they would cut my hair short but like short in a woman-like shape. I don't know, maybe I think too much ?

      Well written!  I couldn't agree more. Thank you dear friend! Jani
