The Before... And After


And the after................

I was gone almost FOUR hours! It was heavenly! So, this is my quick picture and all I have to show you for now. I am sure there will be plenty more dazzling photos of me in the future.

Maybe not as dramatic as some had hoped, but I like the idea of growing my hair out a bit but having a shape again, and some sassy color. I tried
to take a pic so you could really see the color- almost like a purple plum... love it!

I am not saying there was anything specifically wrong with my "before" except that it was old and boring and unshapely to me.

I must say thanks to Mom (who gave me a gift certificate to my salon) and to hubby (who crashed as soon as I got home) for making this all happen!

"The Before" below:



Fuzzy and stringy. Oh, and you can see the etsy necklace that I received from Carrington & Arianne for doula-ing.

  19. I'm desperate to find someone who can do my hair, my old stylist had a baby and it's been so long since I've had it done that I've got roots going like crazy here and it's not pretty.

    I had purple highlights when we lived in ohio but it wasnt as noticable as id hope... since my hairs so dark they had trouble pulling purple from it. Its such a fun color tho!

  39. Very nice look. I'm trying to grow mine out a bit now, too. I need a trim though. You might have inspired me to get more of a shape than just a trim.

  40. I love it! I've always wanted to dye my hair purple, but I'm kinda blonde and I feared it would be too loud. But it looks wonderful on you, just wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Love it! I need to chop my hair but am waiting until it gets hot again. I'm probably going to cut about 18 inches so my hair might end up looking like yours! I'm too lazy to get it colored though. Your new color looks awesome though!
