Summer Highlights

As with many, I decided to go lighter for the summer. My hair has grown out a lot, so my old highlights were long gone. My sis and I decided to take a trip to our local beauty school to get face framing highlights and...

I had the worse beauty school experience EVER!!! Although my highlights came out bomb, my colorist, who was eight months into a ten month program, had no confidence whatsoever. Needless to say, getting your hair done by someone who looks terrified does not make for a good time. However, the instructor, who kept a close eye on the entire process, really helped settle my nerves by reassuring me that all was well. And, I am quite pleased with how everything turned out. Check it out:

As you can see, only a small portion of my hair was dyed. However, the placement, which the instructor called a horse shoe application, makes it appear that a lot of my hair is colored. I asked for a coppery red shade, and that's exactly what I got. Here's another look at the color:

What fun colors/styles will you be experimenting with this summer?

So pretty. I vowed that I wouldn't dye my hair anymore and this makes me want to try it again. Love it. Thanks for sharing.
