I changed my hair color recently. it did not result in the subtle shade I wanted, which is disappointing but par for the course on at home dye jobs in my own experience, but it's not a bad look. I feel like it's a dramatic change but so far am running about 50/50 on people even noticing.
I walked out of a meeting today with some coworkers and paused to say hi to a few of the people waiting for the meeting room. One (who I don't like to begin with) says loudly, "you changed your hair, what's up with that?"
Cue silence from me. I almost reflexively said something to smooth out the awkwardness of the monent but thought of EH and said nothing instead. I know he was being jokey rather than deliberately rude, but honestly, is there a worse way to point out a change in someone's appearance?
