New Hair

I have had red hair for almost a year and over the weekend I decided it was time for a change. I wanted to chronicle it for you all so I took pictures at different intervals during my time at the salon.

Before- Red hair


This was taken about half way through. She lightened the bottom of my hair and darkened the top but it didn’t really turn out how I wanted it to. It sort of came out to how my hair was last summer. Enter the phoenix!!


And this is just me being goofy! HAHAHA!20130415-101129.jpg

Time to process again! Waiting, waiting, waiting…20130415-101202.jpg

After! Inside the salon:


After: Outside in sunlight


Overall the look I was going for was a subtle ombré effect. I wanted my hair darker but not black. Although she used a dark brown for the top of my hair it pretty much came out black 😦 so its actually darker than my natural hair color, which I am not really happy about. At the end she also put a toner on for a quick minute and made the ombré part of my hair darker as well. Fail. Ugh, but she said that the toner should wash out after a few washes and look closer to what I wanted. Here’s hoping she’s right. Although it wasn’t what I wanted, it doesn’t look bad. I am just having to get used to my hair being so dark.

What do you think? I’ll post another update once the color starts to fade or if I have to go back in and get it corrected.
