i knew exactly the look i wanted. i saw pictures online i had saved them to my phone and i was TRYING my hardest to get up the nerve to walk in somewhere ready to pay seventy bucks for a two toned partial weave, cut, color and style. i was so doing this!
i dyed my own hair again and it was lifeless and far from what i wanted. the roots grew again, the color faded, my hair was VERY dry. and like always, seven dollars for a box of the "nice" Walgreens hair dye was what was going to have to cut it...i could "rock it" for the rest of my life.
fail....it doesnt help that i can't grow my hair longer than my shoulders due to its CONSTANT cheap dye breakage.
uh uh. luckily my HUSBAND of all people knows a girl from work who does hair...professionally. not like how we used to dye it when we were bored my freshman year...like actual legit dye. the price was right and i didnt have to endure that awkward beauty salon small talk that the common anti-socialist, such as myself, tries soooo hard to avoid. (which was priceless!)
so she came over and did my hair and i wont lie, i am so excited about it that i am actually blogging about it. ha! all i did was show her the picture, she knew the tone and matched it perfectly...that's like a gift from the Gods (greek, mythical ones, naturally...that is the only way i can get away with saying "Gods" [plural] in Utah County..). i dont know if i have ever liked my hair so much. :) clearly...hence the BLOG POST.
with out further ado...drum roll please...here is proof that it is worth it to stay far far away from little box dye.
|and crazy enough...it almost actually looks healthy...shocker!|
