I have been blonde for 26 years. I started out with bright
white blonde hair as a kid, which then sadly turned into a dirty
blonde as I got older, and then last year I took the plunge
and dyed my hair for the first time ever….blonde still, just platinum. Lol
However, when I walked out of the hair salon four days
before Christmas, for the first time in my
entire life, my hair wasn’t blonde.
Ever since October I had been thinking about dying my
hair. My Halloween costume character (Corpse Bride) of
course has blue gray hair and I thought “hmmm, maybe instead
of buying a wig I should just dye my hair blue.” I took to Instagram
and asked the blog fam and the poll came back with a
big “Yes! Do it!” However, I chickened out, bought a
blue wig, and the blonde hair stayed.
But my desire to change my hair didn’t stop there. I began
spending more and more time on Pinterest looking at various
different colors. It started with blue, then purple and silver, then
wine red, and finally I landed on a silvery blue.
The Inspo Pics:
It was perfect. Exactly what I had been looking for so I sent
the photos off to my hair stylist annnnnnd was sad to hear she
didn’t have room in her schedule for me. (She said with that hair
color touch-ups would probably have to be done every 3-6 weeks.)
So I asked my friends where they go to get their hair done
and that is how I came across Jessica with Blonde Ambitions
here in town. I messaged her the inspo photos and a picture
of my current hair color and we set up an appointment four days before Christmas.
I am not going to lie…I was NERVOUS. I had never not been
blonde. What if I hated it? What if it came out too blue? What
if I looked bad with that hair color? All these what ifs made my
heart race, but at the same time I was feeling excited. I was doing
something I always wanted to do, but was too scared of. And worst
case scenario I can just dye it back….right?
We started out with highlights…
And then 2 rounds of toner. It was a long process but I
am absolutely in LOVE with the end result.
I feel like such a confident bad bitch with this hair color!
Jessica did an absolutely AMAZING job! Honestly I feel like
this is more me than my natural blonde! Maybe I won’t ever go back….
What’s the craziest thing you have ever done with your hair?
