My natural hair color is dark blonde. When I was younger, I had gorgeous bright blonde curly locks and as I got older, my hair darkened so I started to get highlights. As anyone who's ever maintained highlights knows... it's expensive and a little bit of a pain in the ass! lol
Not so au-naturale:
My roots grew out wayyyyyy too long (yes, I'm guilty) so I went to the store and bought a color called "light brown" as an attempt to match my roots. The color should've been named "crap-nasty burnt orange tinted brown" ...
I went to visit a friend who went to cosmetology school to see if she could help me achieve exactly what I was looking for... She took me to Sally's and we picked up a color called "Dark Neutral Blonde" and a 99cent packet of this powder called "UNRED" (the name is self explanatory) and she got to work.
This is the result:
I actually love it! It's a red/brown color and I've always wanted to play around with a red shade. This color was a total accident but thankfully - the hair gods were merciful on me! (I mean, I put "dark blonde" on "light brown" which could've been a total disaster for only being 1 week apart)
I can tell you right now that I will end up back blonde... it's just a matter of time. lol For right now, I'm going to enjoy this shade for as long as it lasts :)
If you could pick any hair color to be what would you choose?
