*Apologies for this post going up a day late, wanted to wait to get the photos from the salon for this post*
If you know me, you know that I have spent most of my younger years as a blondie.
My natural hair color is what most people would describe as “mousy”, so I have always found the lighter my hair, the more flattering it is on me! Before leaving to study abroad last January, I tried to do something different with my blonde locks. It didn’t exactly turn out as planned, so THE DAY BEFORE I left to go abroad I decided to dye my hair one color.. basically black. Talk about taking a major right turn. I went from blonde to black in the matter of a day! Instead of taking the time (which I didn’t have) to fix the blonde, I decided to take a somewhat easier way out, and go dark (which didn’t end up being so easy… sigh).
While the dark hair was convenient for the time I had it, I was still getting it done every few months to get rid of the lighter pieces coming through. Not to mention, it was simply too harsh for me and my skin tone.
Now, I am once more in the process of going light again, and I can’t wait! I had my second appointment with my amazing stylist yesterday, Amber, at Bobby Mack & Co and am en route to going back to blonde. If you’re anything like me, you like instant gratification. When I went to my first appointment I expected to go from black hair all the way back to blonde in a single appointment. Boy, was I wrong. Turns out, if you want to have any hair left on your head.. you have to make that transition the healthy way.
So, my first appointment was simply starting the process, and getting rid of some of the harshness of the black. I waited 6 weeks until my second appointment, and left with some amazing lightness in my hair! I couldn’t possibly trust Amber more, and I cannot wait to get to the final product. If you are at all interested in balayage and hair painting, Bobby Mack & Co will blow your socks off (take one look at their Instagram and you will understand why). ↓
Now time for a little before and after from yesterdays appointment!
YES. PURE MAGIC. I KNOW.
I also got a cute little trim with some angles which I desperately needed in my life. Can’t wait until my next appointment right before GRADUATION.
Thanks for reading friends, HAPPY SNOW DAY EAST COASTERS.
