New Look

Last week I decided that my hair was getting a little too "blah" and I needed to do something to give it a little lift. Typically I would go to the salon and have it highlighted but thought we could save money and I would buy a kit and have my Mom do it for me. After-all, quite a few friends highlighted their hair at our recent ladies retreat and theirs turned out quite nicely.

My Mom has dyed my hair before and does her own so that wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, the kit uses a cap that you painstakingly pull the strands of hair through and after a short time my Mom's wrist and then back began to hurt. I decided to enlist George to help her out. He was up to the challenge, especially since it involved pulling his mother's hair. They did a great job but when they finished it seemed as if they had pulled all of my hair through which would color everything but it was too late to think of that, especially since we needed to be at church for bible study fairly soon.

I kept the solution on for the minimum amount of time and after I tested one strand I had the feeling that my hair was going to be blonde rather than just highlighted. After drying it I wasn't crazy about my reflection in the mirror.  Now my hair has been many colors and styles over the years so that shouldn't  phase me but I really only wanted natural looking highlights, not to completely be blonde. I have been told it looks nice and that may very well be true but yet, that wasn't what I was going for. My Dad asked what my real color is, "the same as yours dad!" Oh well, I guess I am ready for the summer.

We do have some better photos of this process but I am not about to share those here. :)
Me as a blonde. It looks a little lighter in real life.

I'm not one for coloring my hair, but i think you look good blonde. It turned out very nicely.

Does your husband like it?
