I am a very cheap person and normally I pride myself on this. But this last time I was particularly cheap came back to bite me in the butt. When I was in Utah, Nick once again brought up the idea of going blonde. Now I didn't really want to go all the way blonde, but I sort of thought, okay, you know what, I'll try going lighter. And I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to do it while I was in Utah, because they have all of these cheap hair schools.
I planned it all out and had my sister, Bri, babysit Briz while I was gone. Long story short, it ended up taking 6 hours, and my hair turned out bright copper yellow!!!! While I was in the salon, my main concern was leaving so I could get to my baby and feed her. So I don't think I really looked close enough at my hair. I remember not loving it, but sort of though, oh well, maybe its okay. Wrong. It was definitely not okay. It wasn't like highlights. I'm talking a weave on every strand of my hair! I spent that whole night crying and calling people I knew that know anything about hair.
Luckily my friend Kristi does hair and walked me though how to dye my hair. I dyed it back to brown, and I will admit, I was sort of proud of myself. I still have a few random copper spots on my hair, but you can't really see them. And I'm grateful my hair grows fast. It was a truly traumatic experience and I am not sure I can emotionally handle getting my hair done again.
