The lady that cut and highlighted my hair has had to retire due to severe ill health and so I've got to start going to where my BFF goes. My BFF actually cuts my hair.... Anyway, I have this really dirty blonde hair naturally. I was born BLONDE! Actually I was born bald and didn't have any hair till I was 3. When it finally came in I was like Jean Harlow blonde. And then it started darkening and one morning when I was 11 I woke up and my Native American roots had caught up with me and my hair was almost black. So I went and had it highlighted and now when it grows out I can't tell where my highlights stop and my real hair color actually begins. But, because I'm all "growd" up now, starting college, starting my first job, I want to look more pulled together. (my posts about acrylic nails, anyone?) So I'm going to my BFF's place where she gets hers colored and I'm going to have her girl work on my head and I'm TERRIFIED! When my Dad finally said ok to my getting highlights he told my hairstylist that it had better look natural or else....or else what I don't exactly remember. I've wanted to go blonder but he would never let me. (Now because of how sick he is he's never awake to notice.) So when I go I'm going for blonde all over. I have a tiny amount of Red in my hair, it's the Irish in me, and I've always wanted red lowlights, but I'm not gonna do that the first time around with this new girl. Now, before, when I would get my hair highlighted my stylist would pull it through the plastic bag cap....I think at the new place they use the foils and I've never had that done before, what should I expect there? How long does it have to sit before they can wash it out? I'm gonna see if I can get my BFF to go with me since my Mom has to stay with my Dad full time now but I don't think she'll get to come...anyway, as you can tell I'm nervous as all get out. I guess I should bring like a book or a magazine or something, right? I know what I'm gonna say. I'm gonna walk in..."Hi, I'm Missy. Are you Dickie? (yeah, that's her name!) Well hey there, I'm Amanda's friend. My Mom made the appointment for me....yeah! That's me." Haha....I'm a dweeb. Ok, so this is my color as of this moment....excuse my Brad Pitt pic in the background...(my bathroom is covered with pics of old hollywood stars and the company we ordered them from accidently sent Brad along with Clark Gable...and because the pic is from LEGENDS OF THE FALL I decided to keep it, since it's my fav flick!) Ok.... Me with my nearly natural (all but the ends) hair color and my new cut that my BFF gave me.... AND.... My hair before my cut. That's all natural curl too.
