New Cut & Color...

I've never dyed my hair before. Hard to believe, I know, but I've only ever highlighted it. So when Jamie, Viv and Jenny asked me come along, I was really excited. I've been wanted to go darker for quite sometime and decided that it was time for a change. I found something I liked in a magazine, but as it turns out, the hair stylist had something different in mind.

I'm not sure yet if I like it or not, and neither is my husband. He says it's "different". Well... it's just hair so it really doesn't matter. The real test will be if I can actually do it how the stylist did it.
It is really dark reddish brown underneath that fades into low lights into my natural blond colored hair. I really do love the color. The cut is what I'm having difficulty with.... I have bangs. Not bangs like I had in elementary and middle school, but sweeping bangs that go to the side. It's weird. I'm not quite sure a out it yet. She put shorter layers in, which I've had before, but when you put all this "different" together, it is quite shocking.

It's only hair, so if I decide I really don't like it, there is good news... it will grow out and I can always dye it again. One really cool thing is that my hair actually looks healthier after dying it. Strange huh? The stylist said that it's because you are putting pigment in rather than stripping it out when you highlight it. Anyway, here's a pic or two so you can judge for your self.


  1. It looks great! Changes are always so much fun even if it takes awhile to get used to it. :)

  2. You look like a totally different person with darker hair and bangs!! Change is good though and it's always fun to experiment! It's great to keep the "it's only hair" mentality!!

    Love it and love you!
