SPD: NEW FALL 'DO
This is only the third time I've attempted to get a little adventurous with the hair color; the first being that time in high school when I thought cherry Kool Aid would make a really awesome hair dye, and the second time being my sophomore year of college when I thought that I would make a really awesome blonde. Both ocassions were so disastrous that I had to apply for FEMA just to be able to get my shit fixed. Since then, my mug shot has been posted in every drug store, beauty supply store and salon across the country with the caption, "DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME." Whatever, the only reason I even did it in the first place was so that I could help warn the others.
It has taken this long for my hair to recover, and once I finally got it to stop glowing in the dark I decided to try once more, but chose to leave the scalp-altering chemicals in the hands of a trained professional this time. Her name is Christine, and she promised to make my mane dazzle so that I could light up all of the holiday parties this season with beautiful hues of golden bronze, deep chocolate, and velvety red! She had me at "dazzle".
So what do you think? Does it dazzle you? She's been my stylist for about two years now, and crossing the threshold from stylist to colorist was a huge risk. But I took that leap of faith and am pleased with my transformation. I went from a pale girl with mousy brown hair to a pale girl with mousy brown hair WITH GOLDEN BRONZE HIGHLIGHTS, BLENDED WITH A TOUCH OF DEEP CHOCOLATE AND VELVETY RED. Top that, Extreme Makeover!
Also, LOOKIE WHAT I FOUND.
That's Burt's Bees HONEY LIP BALM, PEOPLE. Even though I am no longer a TRUE lip balm "addict", I follow the latest trends on the lipbalm market like a hawk and pride myself on being the first to discover and try the newest, most cutting edge products of the industry. This one is awesome. It's like making out with a delicious honeycomb, except for the whole being attacked by a gang of angry bees and subsequent anaphylactic shock thing.
I would say that the worst hair experience was the "exotic red" I tried a few years back. I looked like a candied apple in the sun.
I think it looks great!
I've never had pro coloring - but I've done it myself countless times. From an even brown, to a fire-engine red, to a blue-black. the only time it really went bad was when I tried to bleach it before dying it a bright red - it turned orange and was fried. NASTY.
It's like all the different incarnations of Coke. None of them have ever worked. Once you've got a good thing, stick with it.
As for the lips ... well ... you know how to whistle, dontcha ...?
Lookin good spoon!!
Girl A.- my liver just ruptured with joy.
Ok, it really is an adorable cute haircut with highlights! But I am also fucking with Kalki's stats. My evil side emerges in response to hot sexy latinas blogging about cute haircuts with highlights!
I mean, I love your new hairdo. I just went darker myself.
I'm all confused.
lefty, I too like the original better than the honey, but it's always nice to change it up a bit, eh?
Found your blog from Kranki's btw. Nice to "meet" you.
