Got my hair done today

After my miscarriage I decided to use a box hair dye. When I called my hairdresser the next day she was rather upset with me and told me I had to wait for the color to fade before she would *fix* it.
So today I finally was able to go and see her. She said she could only do a little blond at a time, but also mentioned about 2-3 inches of my hair was dead and fried from the box dye. Sooooooo she had to cut it off. She did a mini  version of Jennifer Aniston’s haircut (minus the extensions), and I love it! it looks so natural!

  1. I love it (though the old hairdo didn’t look bad either)-it makes you look so young!! Nothing like a good hair cut to make you feel great.

    1. Thanks, I loved the old hair cut too! but unfortunately my ends were dead and frizzed. My hair dresser said not to worry my hair would grow and as long as I use the conditioners it wont break as bad ad it did.

  2. Oh boy…I have a box just waiting for me and my grays are screaming. Now am rethinking the money saving scheme if it’s gonna toast my hair.
    I also love the new look. sassy, trendy, healthy!
    Also…someone does an amazing job on your brows. I wish!

    1. Thanks Eileen. I have them waxed and it’s only 10 dollars (after tip). I refuse to torture myself with tweezers again. Once in HS I totally messed one up and it was super short and uneven. I’d rather pay the 10 dollars and have then done right.

  3. It turned out beautiful but I love the color in the first picture too. I was afraid of box colors for years and spent a fortune on my hair. I’ve been using boxes for the last at least 10 years and it comes out great. Even the hairdressers are surprised. I have a lot of gray in my hair and when I use the box color it looks like someone foiled my hair. But I could really use a good cut now.

    Hugs…Tracy 🙂

  4. I a ‘box’ girl too – because of the expense at the salon! Your color is fabulous – and your new haircut is great too!!!!

  5. Love your new cut. You looked good before too, but I do like that new style on you! Its amazing how a trim can make you look and feel younger!
