I colored my hair! Can you beleive it? I haven't had color in my hair for over 14 years. The last time I colored my hair I had highlights, while relaxing, and it was a disaster. All of my highlights over time fell out. After having that experience I've never really wanted to try anything new. Too scared of the damage and I just didn't really have a problem with my dark hair.
But, It's a new me and I wanted to start this new decade of my life with a new look.
Low and behold:
What do you think?
I love it! I wanted to stay in the "brown" color family but I told my colorist AMY at the Hair Rules Salon that I trusted her judgement and she picked the final color. She lightened by base color and then added a slightly lighter, copper-ish reddish brown to the front in a subtle ombre effect. She felt that doing the normal highlights on the front with the foil was not going to look as great. I agree, because I really don't like the streaky look.
I also had my haircut there the week before and I absolutely love it! Monique cut my hair and I couldn't be happier with the result. I told her that I was scared to loose a lot of my length and she heard me. She cut off only a small amount of hair and gave me a great shape.
I would highly recommend Monique and Amy if you're thinking about cutting or coloring you natural hair.
