The last few weeks I have been dying to get my hair done I have just been waiting to find the right place, price and just something I'm comfortable with! I have been wanting to go and get my hair highlighted so that I would have more blond in my hair than just my normal brown. Well yesterday I got a call from my friend Kaitlin who let me know that a co-worker of hers has a daughter that works at a salon in Orem and that they were having a guy come in who is a color specialist and to teach the girls at the salon about using bold and new colors instead of just using colors that they are use to using. Well I thought that this was really neat but found out that you had to be there by 5:30 and they were only going to pick 10 girls to test the product on. So Kaitlin, Allison and I went down to the place and I ended up getting picked as one of the 10 girls. Now it was to just find out what this color specialist had in mind for me! He went around to each of the girls and just pretty much told the stylists what his vision was for each model. There were some browns, blonde's, and some touch ups that he just wanted to do on some of the girls and on another she didn't really care what they did as long as she didn't come out looking like a freak and so he left it up to the stylists to come up with an idea. Well then it was my turn and he looked at me played with my hair and looked at me and said RED! He was like are you okay with going to a red head and I was pretty much up for anything as long as I didn't look crazy but figured hes the specialists he's been doing this for 10 to 15 years he should know what he's talking about so I was like sure. Well the two stylists who were going to work on me took me to the back and were ready to get started but needed to approve it with the specialist again before mixing the dyes. Well he came over and the stylists showed him what they were thinking he corrected them a little bit and told them to do something a little more bold and so they switched some of the reds to a different shade of red well they got the okay and they went back and started mixing. Came back and started to do my hair as if I were getting a weave but only in the front of my head. Then they went to the back and parted my hair to get the lower part and started to dye all of that with a different color of dye than the first. After finishing that they got to another color of dye and started to dye the top of my head... Well after they were all done putting the dye in my hair I looked CRAZY!!! I was a little nervous of the color but Kaitlin said it was looking good so that made me feel better oh and while all that coloring was happening Kyle came by to pick up Allison! She woke up from her nap and was starting to get a little much for Kaitlin and I to handle so her daddy came to get her! I could tell Kyle was way nervous because he saw the foils in my hair and them rubbing the dye into the back of my had and just didn't know what I got myself into... Well after it was all said and done it's not like a red red its more like a dark red! Everyone loved it! All the stylists stopped and came by to see what I looked like and they all loved it. One stylist said that I will have to stay a red head for the rest of my life because I look so good.. Well I can tell you this when they finished drying my hair I was still unsure of the color until last night when I got home and looked at it in the mirror for a bit I love it! I woke up this morning and I'm still loving it... so I think I will be okay! It's a big change but it was a lot of fun!
Oh you all might be thinking what Kyle's whole thought on this was... Well when I got home he looked and me and was unsure of it all... I think it will take him a few days to get use to! He was hoping for me to come out a blond so this is something really new to him! He keeps saying that I need to be careful of his wife is going to see me! CRAZY GUY!!!
I took a few pictures last night but I will have to style my hair today and take a few more pictures and post them while in the day light so you can actually see the color.
