Back From the Salon

Let me say first that I love my hair! It looks so much better. Thank you for all the wise, encouraging, and honest supinions. (Suggestions + opinions = supinions.)

When my stylist asked what I wanted to do, I told him I'd been seriously thinking about having him dye my hair brown. I told him that I'd been feeling like I needed to start over because I could see three different levels of color in my hair. The top third was lighter, the middle third was medium, and the bottom third was darker. He said it must have been a while since he pulled my highlights and lowlights all the way down to the tip of my hair, as opposed to only doing the roots that have grown out. So there you go. He did the two lowlights to one highlight trick that a couple of you mentioned and he did it from root to tip.

I'm not sure what my haircolor is now. Light brown? Dark blond? Dirty blond? Maybe Amber and Janelle can help me define it tomorrow at church. Whatever it is, I think it's an improvement.

oh, i can't wait to see your hair!!! i am just now reading all of this on your hair issues...my hair history is similar to yours! we'll have to discuss this over dinner soon ;) i was blond for so long, then after two babies, my hair continued to get darker and darker... i gave in, and now i'm all brown! at first i had to have it colored brown, but for about a year now, i've not had any color put on it! i love it natural. i do miss my blond days, but i'm really enjoying the ease of all natural ;)

I would like to echo the general cry for pictures. :)
I need to figure out what to do with my hair, too! I've been saying that for at least a year. ;) One of these days ...

I've been in hair crisis since I gave up professional color for diapers!!!! Seriously, what was I thinking??!

I look forward to the pictures and I am so glad you like it :)
It is so much nicer to walk out of the salon feeling like a million bucks and flipping that hair around like a beauty queen -hehe
