New Moon - New Hair >>>

The past 48 hours Ive been swimming in hair dye.  And Im honestly not quite sure I want to cry, or find that I love it...  I feel like Im 15 again.  I havent had red hair in so long.  Ive been almost every shade of red possible in my teens years... which is probably why it makes me feel young.  It all started when I got the bright idea that I was going to dye my hair dark brown, faded to red, faded to blonde.  So all day yesterday I mastered the brown and the blonde, which was sooooo beautiful, and Im so sad I didnt take any pics of it.  It was super light blonde against this beautiful dark brown.  Then today, I decided to add the red, and quickly I began to realize that my ombre daydream was not going to be a reality, and that I needed to dye all of the blonde red.  The first take was a disaster and came out soft strawberry blonde pink.  So, after I got my new moon hair cut today, I went for it again with a richer shade of red...  And here we are.  Still not sure if I love it or hate it.  I kind of think I hate it, but by tomorrow, I may love it.  But right now I sure am missing my blonde, and Im realizing there is no turning back for a little while at least.  I dont want to ruin my hair after growing it for so long.  Ahhh... the adventures in hair dye.  Luckily, it is just hair.

Happy new moon everyone!  I hope you enjoyed my guest post earlier from Marissa.  Very inspiring!  And, tomorrow Ill be back with yet another awesome giveaway.  This month is full of them!

  1. Glorious new moon to you too! and although I WAS beyond smitten with your blonder ombre look I actually think I now have a hair crush on your red because I have never seen anyone with anything other than brown to blonde ombre, so this color way is super unique :) Ali

    p.s. you have perfect bangs here.

  3. i love it! it's new and fun and a different kind of ombre...i used to have dark brown to light blonde and then i wanted to switch it back to all blonde and for awhile it was practically orange because my hair does that when i go from dark to light...now it's finally blonde again with darker blonde ends...love the fade of any kind of ombre and this one looks gorgeous on you i think!

  20. Own it Girl! Your hair looks lovely. Celebrate the fact that you did it and that you just didn't talk about it and never did anything.....

  23. it looks great. i think you might still be looking at it through those eyes that wanted blonde. once you get passed that and see it for what it is maybe you'll love it. can't wait to see it when it starts to fade. that should look great too.
