blonde


finally, after a year of dying my hair, it's blonde!

around this time last year, I started the process of going blonde. it was long and frustrating, but also super exciting. it took a 3-hour hair appointment every few months to achieve this look & I'm still not done yet. *covers eyes*

I've colored my hair for the last 10 years so it reacts differently to chemicals each time it gets done. the whole process of bleaching my hair was kind of a nightmare and that's why I'm so thankful for my longtime bestie/hair dresser. (see jaclyn's ig here.) each appointment led to a surprise-once, my hair was so brassy, it looked like ketchup & mustard...another time, I ended up w/ hot pink strands all over my head.

not once did my hair stylist let me leave looking like that! she always knew what to do to properly color & tone my hair by the end of the appointment. 

now, let's see how long 'til I get the white/ashy tone I've been gunning for the last year...

  2. I've tried on and off for the past 10 years to go blonde and finally just resigned myself to my reddish brown hair! It's never going to happen and I need to be okay with that!
