I've gone straight to the dark side....

Straight and dark hair that is!


Yesterday my best friend Dani came to hang out with the girls and I. We took them to the park and while we were there I told her that I couldn't wait to get my hair cut. You see, I have had the same curly, dark blonde, long hair style for as long as I can remember. I get my hair cut about once a year and I usually just cut off a few inches and have it layered. So teasingly she said "you are not going to cut your hair. You've been telling me for years that you were going to cut it." I told her that I was serious and that I was going to cut it to just below my shoulders (it was about to the middle of my back). So she said "let's go right now and I'll even pay for it!" You see, Dani has been waiting yeeears to get her hands on my hair lol! So we went in and got my hair cut. She found a style that she liked and had the lady cut it similar. Then when we were done (did I mention that I was in a bit of shock at this point to see my hair so short??) we went to the beauty supply store next door to look at dye. I figured I was this far in, might as well do whatever she wants at this point lol! We went back to my house and she spent hours dying and then highlighting my hair. I pretty much went in to shut down mode when we washed all the dye out and I saw that it was dark brown! The highlights that we put in weren't as light as we thought they might be but they gave the perfect tint to the brown. She wouldn't let me look at my hair again until after she straightened and styled it. It took me a few minutes to get over the major shock but when I did, I loved it! It is sooo completely different than anything I have ever even thought of doing and am so happy that it turned out well ;) Now both Kylie and I have brown hair and blue eyes :D


Before (taken Thurs. with my Kayla-Bayla)
After (of course Kylie's eyes are half closed)
You can't see as much from the after picture but it's the best one I have. My goodness, I actually feel like a grown up now lol!


Come back tomorrow for a special WIR and some big news!

I'd love to see the rest of your hair! I can see that the darker color sure brings out the blue in your eyes. So far that I can see it looks great!
