Here at buddingfashionista.com, we’re (ok, “I’m”) all about dabbling in this and that, expanding horizons and being open to new beauty and fashion experiences. I recently did just that with my hair! My blogger friend, Erica Bunker hosted a giveaway for a free color/cut/style on her Facebook page…and whatdyaknow?! I won! I figured it was the perfect opportunity to try hair color for the first time! Yes, at 35 years old, I still had virgin hair. Mostly because I don’t want to spend the money on the process and maintenance. I’d rather spend the money on clothes or shoes or something that will last longer than a 6 week dye job. Plus, my hair is one thing I’m actually happy with when it comes to my appearance. But for free, I’ll try just about anything. So, I visited Barbara at To Dye For Studio located in Salon Suites. I told her this was my first time and didn’t want anything that was too dramatic or required too much maintenance. Here’s a “before” picture:
Then Barbara got to work (there she is in the background)!
In the end, Barbara went with peek-a-boo style highlights to keep the shock factor down! You could hardly tell from the front with my hair down…
And a few days later, I curled my hair before an event and it really helped bring out the highlights!
I decided I could handle a little more color and took Barbara up on her offer to do any touch-ups after the initial visit! So, the highlights are now a little more visible and I love the effect I get when I curl it! What do you think?! If you live in the Birmingham area (or are willing to drive here), you have a chance to have a little fun with color! Contest ends April 5th.
