I wasn't always a pretty blonde, but now that I (partially) am, I'm soaking it up!

TSM Rochester: Val Kleinhans

You might remember that I, Val, was pretty well known for my long dark hair. Before cutting and coloring it in May, I was proud of it - but I knew I wanted a change. I went with a blonde bayalage look.

I felt like I was the only dark-haired person in Minnesota! lol

While it was a shock to change my hair at first, I've seriously grown to love it!

Recently, something happened that fulfilled my every 2000's movie dream. I realized that I could finally say that I was part of a "blonde-tourage"  - you know, an entourage of blondes that hangs out together constantly. They were always the cool girls in those movies.

I didn't plan on this happening, but I realized I matched some other awesome blonde Minnesotans while I enjoyed a night out over the weekend. I found my "blonde-tourage"! So, since I'm in one, I think I can finally talk about what being part of one is like.

Here are five things I learned that happen when you're part of a "blonde-tourage".

  1. All of the Iliza Shlesinger and Chris D'Elia jokes come to life: Those dolphin sounds we make while searching for each other in a parking lot - they happened. So did things that "DON'T EVEN MATTER".
  2. Having more fun: Okay, maybe this is a stretch - as a blonde, I did have fun that night. More fun than as a brunette? Eh, debatable.
  3. Wine drinking: Yep.
  4. You stick together: We didn't leave each other's side the whole night! I got a little lost leaving the venue, but that's because my phone died.
  5. Cute outfits: ...because, duh.

Are you part of a "blonde-tourage" too?
