I’ve been saying for a few months now that I wanted to change up my hair. I have been growing it out for almost 4 years after deciding to try the ‘Posh’ cut (not nearly as cute when you are not 80lbs soaking wet), and it had been quite dark for some time. I have always had a love affair with red hair, for as long as I can remember. I would have red highlights put in it, then go back to dark, then all red, then red chunks, then back to dark, then to blonde etc etc.
Are you seeing a pattern here? I like to have fun with my hair, and as a licensed hairstylist, I have been fortunate to have everything at my fingertips to make that happen. So when I made the decision to break my boring brown hair streak, it was as easy as running to the local professional supply store and getting the color I needed. Added bonus: it only cost me $8.00 for that professional color na na na na na na!
Final result was freaking AWESOME. I was shocked, and totally unsure. It was so different and more vibrant than I was prepared for, but I knew that I loved it right away. Red just feels right on me. I feel fun, sassy, warmer and dare I say sexier? It’s such a fun color and so ME. I walked around with it like this today, got a lot of looks and 2 women stopped me to ask where I had it done because they loved it. Ego boost? Yes please.
However, after some thought and examination, I knew that this color was going to fade crazy fast, (remember that thing about liking to change my hair? Ya, damaged hair means color washes out super easily) so I decided to throw on a semi permanent gloss over it to deepen the color a bit and add some richness. and now? I REALLY love it. So there you go, new Krystal.
(it’s actually quite a bit more red than it looks in this picture, I’ll have to get a better shot tomorrow.)
