I got highlights today for the first time ever. I've only had all-over color before. It was an experiment. An expensive experiment. What you see here is my blonde with low lights of 7CG, or something like that. "Reddish," in English. I know that even with color-care shampoo, this will not last. Red has the least staying power. But I have always loved red hair and always will. If I were doing this again, I would add a 3rd color called "The Color My Roots Are" in order to give it some depth. I also had them take 2" off. So that will be grown out by 2015, roughly. I exaggerate a little bit. I can get 3" in about a year. Seriously.
Same day, same hair, different room & lighting. My mother will not like this. Will not like red, will not like the flatness of this. I will have to face the music at some point. Note that I am nearly 50 years old and worried that my mother will not approve. Oh well. I just needed a change. A pick me up. Girlfriends will understand. What do you do when you need a girly pick me up?
