So I went to get a cut and color today. I should have stayed home. I went to my regular guy, who's usually amazing. But I've never gotten my hair colored before, just permed, so I really didn't know what to expect. I decided to go with highlights instead of full color. He asked me what I wanted - I told him, no blonde, please. I think it looks tacky when you've got a dark brown shag with blonde highlights. And way too many people do that. That's my personal opinion. I don't judge you brown-haired, blonde-highlighted gals out there. He said red or caramel highlights would look great, and we opted for the caramel. I desperately wish I had gone with the red now. I'm sure it would have looked so much better. But what's done is done. Now I have caramel highlights that don't really look caramel-ish at all. They look blonde. A dirty blonde. A stripper blonde. And I want to scream and pull out my hair. I love the cut - the haircut is beyond adorable, but the color? ARGH!!!!! I spent $200 on the cut, color, and a cut for my sister, plus tip and some shampoo.... so I'm not going back there until I absolutely have to. So blonde highlights it is for 2 more months. ARGH! ARGH! ARGH!!! GAH!!!
But I won't kill my lovely hairdresser - he tried his best, and everyone said it looked so cute, but they're all employees, so I say they HAVE to say it looks cute. GARGH!!! Blah. Red highlights for me in 2 months.
