New Hair?!

I did it.

After over one year of debating, I took the plunge. I cast away all doubts and manned up. I highlighted my hair! I bought a L'oreal box kit from the drugstore and was planning on dying it Saturday after my mom came home from her hair cut. She promised to ask our hair dresser if she had any tips for success...But, she said, "Oh god no! You're coming in and I will do it for you. Since your hair is so dark it's easy for it to turn either white or orange. I would hate to see that happen." So, I made an appointment that day.


In these pictures it looks really red and crazy (pics include natural lighting + flash). I got these highlights called peek-a-boo highlights. Basically, you highlight the layer underneath the top. This allows the color to peep through. She said if you want to go crazy, you can part your hair a different way and it will be more a vibrant color.

I can't believe I actually went through with it. Do you like it? Or ya think it looks weird'? ><

I'm about to  pass out....zZZ,

  4. I happen to think your hairstyle and new highlights are gorgeous! Btw, I just found your blog and find it really cute.

    I notice you're a self proclaimed nerd. May I ask what kind of nerdy hobbies you have? Are you into video games? :P

  7. Thanks! Hahahaha. I don't really know how to explain it. I just curl it. You can use either a large curling iron or a flat iron to achieve the same look. Above, I used a flat iron and only curled the first three sections. If you have any questions, just let me know!

  12. Thanks for the follow!

    I'm also a big FF fan, though I haven't played anything in a while. I loved FF7, Tactics, and FF8/FF9. I tried their newest MMO too but got kind of turned off when my character got STUCK in this random cave... anyway. I LOVE HP! I think the last one comes out next month? Haha.

    Just wondering, and don't take this into offense because I'm NOT trying to stereotype but are you into Blizzard games like StarCraft I or II? Currently those are my main addictions!
