I Think I Like it!!!

So, in an effort to spice up my personal style, I decided to get my hair hi-lighted. You know....spruce up the 'do!

Round 1--November 18, 2007
I accompanied Malitta to the mall while she picked up a gift for her brother, I decided there was no time like the present to get my hair hi-lighted. Do you know how your hair ranks on the shade scale? Apparently I have really dark hair: 1 shade lighter than the darkest! Well, the stylist and I decided that going 2 shades lighter for highlights would be appropriate.

1 1/2 later....beautiful chocolate brown streaks. BUT, if you know me, then you know my hair, and my hair is pretty much espresso you could tell the difference, but you couldn't! I wanted a change, pizzazz, the WOW factor!, so we decided I should come back and lighten my streaks up a bit!

Round 2--November 27, 2007
I'm excited....I could barely wait. I anxiously climb in the chair to undergo the "caramel experience." I'm laughing just thinking about it. She applies the color to the previously treated problem, only makes sense to me. Well, I knew that my hair was light when a "TONER" was needed. YEP! She put a toner on my hair before it was all said and done. Now I know that I've kept you in suspense, and my hair looks GREAT, BUT--it is WAAAAAAAAAAY out of my comfort zone. There are pieces of Beyonce' and Mary J. Blige, and knowing me, you know I'm more "natural." I still do a double take when I look in the mirror, I mean WOW! So, if you see me anytime soon, and you really don't know what to say, it's ok! I understand....I'm pretty speechless myself! Pictures to follow shortly!
