Welcome to Thawed-Out Thursday!
This weeks post was WELL "thought" out.
This post is WAY past delayed but the story that happened after was hilarious so I had to share anyways. Especially since... this hair cut has long since grown out and it's time for a new color! I got this hair cut right before Easter! Yikes.
My little sister is a hairdresser and, as such, I usually get my hair cut and colored by her when I visit! Last time I saw her was at Christmas. My hair was due for a cut, but I didn't really want to bother her! Christmas is fun and everytime she was over there just wasn't a great time to have a trim or a long sit in a chair. Mostly... She usually gets paid to do it and... I don't really pay her! Love her yes... Pay... probably should.
Anyways since the last cut and color I had was in November at Thanksgiving I was WAY over due. My beautiful Pink Ombre' had faded and my ends were... just yucky! I thought I could wait until I saw my sister during our move, but... as our move keeps getting pushed back my hair keeps getting nappier and nappier! (Is that a word. Ok... it is for now at least.) I have a cousin who is a colorist, but I am not sure how long we would be in town or even WHEN!
With the trusted help of Facebook I put a call out to all my friends to find a hairstylist in the area that was GOOD! I was nervous and excited. I love getting my hair done, but my sister is good. And I have had some bad stylists.
I went in to Tiffany at Avant Garde Salon in Destin. I asked for a purple Ombre'. But she had a slightly different idea. Fine with me. I like different!
This is what she came up with. Kinda hard to see with the hair down. What I ended up with was pretty much some VERY heavy highlighting to the majority of the underside of my hair. There are also about 5 spots just underneath the top where the color goes all the way to my roots! Then she got really crazy and did some in my bangs too! She used a very dark Purple and then something to make that same dark purple lights so that it blended a little better.
(The color looks a little weird in this picture.)
Here is some of my top layer moved back so you can see the underneath... Lots of Dark Purple on this blonde!
This is a much better picture of just the color! You can see the dark and then a good strip of the lighter purple in the middle! I love it! I also love that it the color almost seems... Natural? Well... as natural as purple blended highlights can be!
And just in time for Easer! In fact, I taught the 3-4 year olds today in church. One little girl noticed I had purple in my bangs and I decided to have fun with it. (Just so you know... they call me Snow White instead of Sister Herbert because... it's fun. I don't call any of them by their real names either.)
Belle: Snow White! You have purple in your hair!
Me (shocked): What? What do you mean?
Ariel: Right there! Wait... it's all over!
Me: Wait... You don't think the Easter Bunny did this to my while I was sleeping do you?
Belle: I bet he did! But why?
Me: I don't know. He is a funny bunny.
I love kids! And... I LOVE my purple hair! If we weren't moving I would totally go to Tiffany again! ;)
