so, i am here now to explain and clear up any confusion that may have resulted from my previous two posts.
first of all, in no way shape or form did i go to my hairstylist and say, "make me a blonde!" believe me, i, more than anyone else, know that i would NEVER look good as a blonde! i'm hawaiian, for cryin' out loud, not to mention filipino and chinese! our kind tend not to look good with blonde hair! i know this! so, just to be clear, i did not and will not ever purposely try to be a blonde!
phew, glad i got that cleared up!
i did, however, go to my hairstylist and say that i wanted some light streaks of color to add a little interest and pizazz to my otherwise plain, brown hair. after that point, i don't know how i ended up looking like this (maybe it was the bleach!):
when i got home and looked in the mirror i was shocked by what i saw! how did this happen?? i thought, maybe it will look better when i wake up in the morning...
that first and only day as a blonde, i did not go out in public without a cap of some sort on my head! when people asked to see it i refused to remove my hat (a very select few managed to get a glimpse). i knew that there was NO WAY i was going to be able to live like this much longer. something had to be done! a girl can only wear a hat for so long. a baseball cap at church just doesn't go over very well!!
i called my hairstylist and begged and pleaded for her to fix it. much to my delight she could see me that night!!
she did not get rid of all the blonde, but she was able to cover a lot of it up. i do like it much better, but i still think there is more blonde than i would choose to have.
many of you asked to see the "re-do" pictures so here is what i look like now (note: the pictures of my blonde hair looked much better than it did in person. yep that's right, it looked much worse than the pictures showed, just ask the priveleged few who saw it! just the same, these pictures make my hair look darker than it really is, thus appearing better than it really is.):
i like the back the best because it is still dark on the bottom. in this picture it looks more red than blonde, which it is not! who's that cute baby?
the blonde streak on the side of my face in this picture is probably the closest representation of the color in my hair
the sad thing about this, is that now, i just want my plain, brown hair back!
