So, I did it. I highlighted the heck out of my hair. For a quick refresher, this is what I was going for:
And this is what I got (forgive the crappy lighting!):
I love it! I think it’s very fresh, summery and different from how it was before. I am excited to mess with it a little bit more, obviously, my stylist curled it for me today to give me that wavy look. I’m curious to see how it looks straight, too. All-in-all, I would say it was a good move, granted I’m ready for it to be about a foot longer! It will take a few trips to give me that all over color that Alessandra (because we’re on a first-name basis and all) has, but I think this was a good first visit. Right after processing, the highlights were way too blonde, and before she even showed them to me, she said we were toning them down, so she did. I like the color a lot now! Hopefully I’ll be happy with this look for a while. I definitely feel refreshed, and I’m so relieved that I’m not platinum blonde… I was getting nervous when she was brushing on all of that blonde color!
