Do you ever have this picture in your head of how something is going to turn out, and it just DOESN'T HAPPEN? Yeah. That's what happened here. I was going for a red-to-blonde ombre effect (because my hair is FINALLY long enough to do that kinda jazzy stuff). My sweet hairdresser asked me if I wanted to subtle or bold ombre. Obviously I said BOLD. Well, I got something a little more bold than I bargained for. I haven't bleached my hair in a couple of years, and I forgot just how well my hair takes to bleach. I could've gone platinum blonde without damaging my hair if I'd wanted to.
Just as a reference, here's my hair before: lots of weird colors and dye-overs and whatnot. But pretty dark nonetheless.
So yeah. It's quite the change. The girl really did a great job! I'm just still in new hair shock. Eek!
