New Haircut and Color!

About every few months, I get sick of my hairstyle or color. This has led to many dye jobs, which has led to my horrific dry ends. Last June, I decided to take my already ombre-ed hair and lighten it some more. It came out nice, but being that I did it myself, it was probably a very poor job of what the professional could do. My ends were SO dry and ugly.

So I thought maybe a cut would do the trick. No coloring, just a nice trim. I went a popular Korean salon in Midtown one day I was in the city towards the end of October. While the hairdresser was nice, she didn't mince words. Majority of the time she spoke to me, she was talking about my hair, telling me how damaged and brassy it was. However, after complaining about how horrible my hair was, she decided to RAZOR it. Which is probably the worst thing you can do to dry and damaged hair. My hair ends were snagging against my shirt! I mean what hair does that??

I tried to live with my hair a while longer. During the hurricane power outage, I basically threw it up in a ponytail and forgot about it. Then I decided that if I wanted to have healthy hair again, I needed to chop it off. I went to a new hairdresser, one that's closer to my apartment and spent about four hours in the chair. I have to say I feel pretty happy about the end result. She took off about two inches of hair leaving me with a chic looking lob, inspired by the lovely Olivia Palmero.

Me waiting, this is my before shot

The amount of the foils she put in my head, I felt like Joaquin Phoenix in Signs where he makes the foil hat so aliens couldn't read his thoughts

End Result!

I'll probably go back in a month or so to get the red retouched

With the flash
Hope you are all having a great week!
