Over the weekend, Jake and I went down to Atlanta, Georgia to visit my family there. I got my color done the day before and went that nice blush pink again. As per my hair’s normal behavior, it doesn’t look anything like it’s real self in pictures. Charlie lightened it so much, with highlights all over, before toning it to a rad rosey rosey pink. It’s even pinker than it was last summer. Here is a picture that doesn’t help much.
We karaoked for my sister’s birthday. I was in the middle of an important performance of Pat Benatar’s “Love Is A Battlefield” when this photo was taken. That’s my top 5 favorite karaoke song ever.
It’s time for me to have a crush on color protecting shampoo/conditioner again, because this blushy hair is still only going to last 3 or 4 shamps if I’m lucky!
This is just a peek at what it looks like. I’m hoping Jake can get some photos in the natural light today sometime so you can see it better. It is a dusty rose-blushy pink. I love it! Charlie painted tons of highlights in my hair, but kept my base close to the red that I already had, then after shampooing out the color, she applied a toner to make it this pretty pink! We have two huge feathers at the salon in one of the back rooms that have a very antique look, and the feathers are the exact color of my hair. I love it!
This kind of toner really doesn’t last long, so I’m going to try and avoid shampooing as much as possible for the next few weeks. Once the pink is out, it will be pretty light again. Color is so fun.
So, thanks to the commenter, Sarah, who suggested I get pink somewhere..I hope you were serious, Sarah!
Thanks for your suggesties! Don’t be jeal of my pink hair!
PS, I answered 5 questions about hair over on Jana’s blog yesterday. Go take a look!
