Hair Before & After!

Just got home from getting my hair highlighted and thought you guys might want to see the finished product!

Just a little history first:

Back in high school I was quite blonde.  I would get highlights regularly every 6 weeks and as a result, I became more and more blonde.  At the time, I really liked it - but looking back, it was probably a little too much...see below.  Eeek.

When I went off to college, I started fresh by dying my hair back to dark brown.  This may or may not have been to save a little extra cash :-)  Fixing those roots was quite expensive!!  Anyways, my hair has been dark brown ever since and although I think I look good as a brunette, I've just been longing for some dimension/contrast to my hair.  I'm tired of just one color.  

So after months and months of deciding whether I really wanted to take the plunge back towards blonde, I finally made the appointment for this morning.  

I think it turned out really well.  I emphasized that I didn't want it to be too blonde and no crazy platinum streaks.  I think she pulled it off!  So here are the before & after pics.  (They're really not the greatest pictures...but I couldn't get the lighting right.)



So there you have it.  I think I like it! :-)

Hope you're having a great Saturday!

I love it! It's not overdone at all. I love subtle lightening. I think your hubby will love it, too! It's fun to make a change every once in a while. :)

Looks good! I am the same- love having the lighter look, but it's so hard to keep up with the dark roots!
