Got my hair done tonight - yay!! Got a little trim ... I chickened out on cutting the length - I am loving my long hair - but, I did get a few more longer layers, and had it colored almost black. I am so excited that I no longer have a lovely band of brassy, grown-out color at my roots, and I love the new shiny, rich color. My stylist rocks!
I want you all to know though that I honestly tried to get purple highlights tonight!! No joke! I went into the salon this evening very excited to take the plunge! My stylist helped find the right strands in between my top and bottom layers (so the purple wouldn't be too crazy obvious, but fun when peeking through), she bleached the strands slightly so the color would stand out from my darker color, and .... nothing. We tried a second time to apply the color, without re-bleaching (I don't want straw for hair), and still nothing. Sigh. I was so bummed. My stylist has a couple other ideas that we may play around with later this week, but for now I am thrilled with my new color.
