Sooooooooo, all the ladies will understand where I am coming from. Hair, the color, the cut, the style – it’s all a big deal right?!?
Here’s the deal: tomorrow I’m getting my hair done. I want to make a change, possibly, and I need your help!
For most women (including myself), there are only a FEW people who are allowed to touch their hair. Can you relate??
I think usually this happens because of a bad experience. With me, I trusted someone with my hair and things did NOT turn out well.
This pic really doesn’t show the hair cut, but it was super short, and WAY too blonde. I wanted to try something new and I trusted the gal to do whatever she wanted. Again this pic really doesn’t show it well, I didn’t take a lot of pics during that time because I didn’t like the hair style at all. Bad experience. This was my sophomore year in college (like 10 years ago!) and I’m still not over it haha.
Hair is like a statement piece. It’s one of the first things people see when they meet you. It can make or break your appearance. It may seem like I am being dramatic, but talk to anyone that works in personal branding or styling, they will tell you it is true! Hair is your mo-jo and you can’t just trust it to anyone
Thankfully I have an awesome hairstylist, Tiffany. She was considering moving and I panicked a little. Haha. She did my hair for my wedding, suggested I try a different color to bring out my natural color, and from then on she has been my hair bestie!
(yes, I color my hair, I know you were all thinking it has to be natural 😛 I am naturally blonde but not this color blonde)
As you can see, I get slightly apprehensive about making a change with my hair. I took the leap last year and added bangs. I figured it I hated it I could always grow them out. Obviously I ended up really liking them.
Right now I am at the point that I want to make a change – just a small one, but something to up my game a little bit 😀 I don’t want to cut my hair shorter because it takes FOREVER to grow out. I also don’t want to put long layers in my hair because while I have a lot of hair, it is thin, so long layers just make it look stringy.
So then I thought, maybe I could change the color???
These are some images from my Pintrest board –
I tend to like honey and carmel blondes better. The top right is a little dark for me. There are so many choices! Check out more of my hair-spiration over on Pintrest!
I don’t plan on changing the cut much. Lately I have been loving the side bang vs. the straight across bangs, so I think I will keep my bangs long so I can keep pulling them to the side.
I don’t want anything crazy different, just a subtle change. Don’t worry, I won’t be a brunette tomorrow or anything!
What do you think? Which style/color do you like?
Also – do you get apprehensive about who touches your hair too?
