I wasn’t planning on doing a whole blog post about this but I’m so excited about my new hair that I had to document it. It’s such a big deal for me because I haven’t had my hair professionally done in over 10 years. Yes I know, it’s pure madness. I needed a change and I desperately needed to get my self confidence back.
I used to have highlights and caramel hair and loved it. I don’t know why but it made me feel good about myself. Somehow I was convinced to go back to my natural color because a certain someone preferred dark hair. So I went au natural in 2009. I didn’t mind it however I never liked it either. I didn’t feel like it was truly ME. The only positive part was the low maintenance. As I’ve said before, my hair went completely down hill when I got pregnant and got much worse after I gave birth. My hair has been a hot mess (lol).
My hair was in desperate need of some dimension. It needed LIFE. I needed a change. I needed to do something that made me feel pretty and whole again. I know it’s only hair but it’s so much more than that for me. I was able to do something for ME and only ME. A color I wanted and not because someone told me to. It’s hard to explain but I felt alive again and it feels damn good.
The end result is this gorgeous balayage ombré color and I couldn’t be happier. If you are in the Orange County area, you need to go see Candy at Shear Bliss! She is amazing and gave me back my confidence. Thank you Candy! XO
