I have come to a major decision in my life.
I’m dying my hair.
In the grand scheme of things, it’s not so major but for a hair color, it’s kind of extreme (especially for me). I have been thinking about doing this for so long, I’m sure my friends are getting really tired of hearing me talk about it. I’m finally biting the bullet, and just doing it. Carpe diem, right?!
I went to G2O Spa and Salon on Newbury Street and had a consultation with two stylists (my regular stylist and another stylist who specializes in alternative hair colors). I first showed them my hair Pinterest board so they could what I liked, disliked, etc.
We came up with some criteria:
– Yay: Dimension. I have highlights now, and I really like the different tones and would like to keep a similar feel to my next color.
– Nay: Neon. Cool for lots of things, but hair isn’t one of them.
– Nay: Looking like a teenager who did a hair experiment in the bathroom at home.
Less Avril Lavigne, and more Helen Mirren.
It’s going to be quite the process to get to what I want to be, but I’m confident that we’re on the same page as far as what I’m looking for and in the stylist’s skills. And if it turns out horribly? I might cry, but it’s only hair and can be dyed again.
The big day is this Friday, so keep your eyes on my Instagram and this space for pictures!
