I’m alive can you believe it?! Ha! I’ve got a few posts lined up over the next week or so and I PROMISE I will be blogging again more consistently this Spring. I am also so excited to start filming some videos for the YouTube channel I’ll be adding in the next month or so! I’ll be shooting “dressing room diaries” and tutorials and whatever else you guys want to see, so make sure to let me know here or over on Instagram! The first video is going to be a Blogging/Vlogging/Spring Q&A with my girl Nicole, whose VLog you can find, here. Make sure to comment with any questions you have about blogging or vlogging or Spring fashion and we’ll make sure to get to them! 🙂
So remember like a month ago when I posted on Instagram that I was getting my hair colored for the first time? Here’s the post I promised would follow, ha! I was so excited when one of my friends tagged me in The Business of Balayage’s instagram page regarding needing a model for a class they were teaching in the burbs. I’ve always wondered what my hair would look like if I colored it and over the years I could never decide what I wanted to do so I just kept it natural and boring, ha! See before pic below! 😉 Sorry about the bathroom selfie, ha.I have always loved how people’s hair looks after a balayage so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to try it out and I’m SO glad that I did! 🙂 Check out the during and after photos, below! I had no idea what to expect or what color would come out of all this white dye! I wasn’t nervous like some people might assume because I had seen Amber’s work on Instagram and knew I was in good hands! I love how it turned out! It actually looks like I have some depth and movement in my hair which I’ve never had before! It’s always just been flat and blah, ha. I had no idea the art that went into dying hair, obviously since I’m not a stylist and have never had my hair colored before but it’s actually such an amazing technique. Since Amber was teaching a class to lots of other hair stylists I got to hear all the ins and outs of balayage, like how important considering the clients type of hair, hair-line, and part are to your coloring job and the science behind the levels of products and how long to let it sit before applying it to your hair and the art of using different brushes to apply the product by painting it on. I am so impressed by the people who know how to do this! If you interested in learning their technique I encourage you to follow them on Instagram and sign up for a class in your area. They travel all over to teach and some of the ladies in this class traveled a long distance to learn from them so I know it’s worth your time. I know understand why getting your hair colored is so dang expensive, you can’t do this at home ladies, it takes a real artist! Look how pretty it turned out! My hair has NEVER looked better, don’t you agree? Having this new do has inspired me to actually do my hair more during the week and I am actually planning on posting my recently self-taught curling method on my channel in the near future. I am so thrilled with how my hair looks these days, especially curled and I’m sure you’ve noticed on Instagram it’s curled almost everyday now! Shoutout to Amber for giving me confidence in my hair for like the first time ever! 🙂 I wish I could have you do my hair again out in LA, maybe someday or maybe I’ll just have to model for you again! Yay! 😉
Stay tuned for a hair curling tutorial and the deats on my favorite products. But in the meantime I would love to hear who inspires you to have your best hair days and what some of your favorite products are! I’m currently loving all things Bumble and Bumble, which is of course, some major ca-ching but so worth it! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Tuesday!
