Hi guys! Today's post is a bit of a surprise. I've been looking through endless pictures of haircuts and colors for the past couple of months because I decided to dye my hair for the summer! Yesterday I went in and had my hair dyed... Drumroll please... Purple! It was a shock to everyone, but I ended up loving it! I've never dyed my hair before, but I am so glad I did because I think it looks amazing. Here are my weird little before and after car selfies.
I absolutely love it. It really shows some personality and is such a fun color! Another drastic change was the cut. My once crazy thick hair is now layered. Tons of layering. I love the extremely light feeling, and it's so easy to manage! It doesn't mess up easily and requires very little upkeep. The only flaw is that I got semi-permanent dye. Since this was my first time coloring my hair, I wanted to make sure I liked it before making that commitment. That's actually a bit of a blessing though since my school doesn't allow unnatural hair colors. Here are my oh-so attractive pictures during the dying.
The biggest shock wasn't to me, it was to my grandparents. They freaked out. The reason I didn't try this last year is because I was afraid that they would hate it, so I decided to wait and surprise them. They literally thought it was a wig and refused to believe me until they'd had a tug on it to make sure. They don't particularly like it to say the least, but the rest of my family and friends loved it!
I had it done at Salon Visions in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and it was SO inexpensive. They only charged me $50 for a fantastic job, and it was exactly what I wanted. Super happy!
