For about a year and a half, I have been growing my hair out. No change, just growth and lately, I have been so sick of it! I needed to spice things up somewhere...
I'm not one to lighten my hair, I have done it a couple times in the past, but never liked it well enough that it stuck. I know, just plain old brown hair. So when I mentioned to one of the sweetest girls on the planet, Serenity (who is currently going to hair school), that I have been secretly falling in love with ombre hair, she told me to dive in, and just DO IT! Here are a few before pictures taken by my awesome sister Abi...she is the greatest!
She is a doll and I wouldn't trade her for the world. Love that girl. Anyways! So I made the appointment. As it got closer and closer, I started to feel a pit growing in my stomach...I was so nervous. I was terrified that lightening my hair would ruin it, that it would go way way way too light and I would hate it, or that I would regret it afterward.
I got to the salon and as soon as she sat me down in front of a mirror, I noticed that my chest and neck were all red and splotchy. (If you have known me since high school, you might know that before a big game, or competition, that when I am nervous, this disease strikes...and it's awkwardly embarrassing...) This hasn't happened since high school...that is how nervous I was!
So, with some encouragement, they got to bleaching and I looked somewhat like I had some aswesome dread locks. It was sweet! Then they rinsed and finished up the color and here is how it turned out:
It wasn't too light, my hair wasn't fried, and I don't regret it one bit! She did an amazing job and did exactly what I wanted! Thank you Serenity!
And, Josh loves it too! (Don't our matching stripes and eyes rock?) It has been years since I did anything but plain brown so even just a little gradual lightening was a huge step for me!
I would recommend going to Serenity in a heartbeat!
Hope you all have a great day, let me know if you would like her number for an appointment;]
