Blonde?

I've made two trips to see my magician hairdresser in the past week. First, the cut. LOVE it! During THAT visit, she once again remarked that my hair was REALLY getting gray underneath. No joke, Sherlock!

It was definitely time to go for the color, so I scheduled an appointment as I left. Yesterday, I went in and we discussed what color highlights would go best with my hair. When she mentioned "caramel" I envisioned something a bit closer to my natural color. This is BLONDE my friends!!

I felt a bit guilty because my first reaction was more SHOCK than LOVE! I didn't HATE it, but I knew that it was going to take a bit of getting used to. My magician told me that the first time she highlighted her hair she cried, but that she loved it within 48 hours!!! We're almost to 24 here, and it's already starting to grow on me;)




This high-quality photo brought to you courtesy of BHE's cell phone. I was bullied into getting a photo up as quickly as possible.



This is the part where you all leave comments telling me how FABULOUS it looks, and that it has taken 10 years off of my face. UmK? Thanks!!

I think it looks amazing!! You could even go a little lighter with some framing around your face...that's the great thing about going lighter...if you really don't like it, you can always go darker, but I think blonde is working for you. Enjoy!!!

How funny.
I also visited my magician TWICE this week. The first time for a cut, the 2nd for highlights.
You look mawwwwwvalllllouuuuuus.
I do love it.
Brightens up your whole face....and we all know about your sunny disposition. Now your hair matches your personality!
Money well spent.

This is such a relief. First of all, it looks wonderful. Fabulous. Second of all, you have no idea how many times I've asked myself where the dark hair came from, since I've seen both (and practically wanted to marry one) of your parents and didn't notice any dark hair there.

LOVE IT!

Oh, My!! Forget fabulous, dahling.
How about Spectacular!!!

And 10 years? I'd guess-timate (if I was being pressured)(which I am not)(not) I'd say at least 20.

Welcome to Blonde-World, hon. It is just awesome. xxoo

It does look great! I really need to bite the bullet and cover my grey too.

You *do* look fabulous! I love the new 'do,' and highlights. Looking forward to more photos!

OMG! I had no idea you were in your 20's!.... Er, teens? ;-)
No, really it is very pretty and if you feel like it's coming on too strong for you, (being used to your natural color), it will start to tone down in a couple of weeks anyway. But in the meantime, I can see no reason why you wouldn't get used to it and love it.;-) I do!

My Metabolic Rate is Stuck said...

A. I LUV LUV LUV it!!! Seriously, and HONESTLY you look YOUNGER!!!
I suggest you keep the style and color for at least the next 10 years. Truthfully you have a special "sparkle" surrounding you! <3
