I used to be a blonde.
My whole life actually.
Until about seven years ago. Every year since, when springtime comes around, I have the urge to go back.
It’s usually cured by a few Kardashian episodes or a desperate phone call to Rachel (my sis) where she reminds me of the damage and the awkward stages and the promises I made when she dyed it back black after a brief blonde stint that first year, that I was not going to flip-flop or I’d end up bald…as hairdressers say:
“Once you go black, we don’t want you back.”
Well, this year not even the Kardashians could throw me a bone considering they have all lightened their hair too and even when I dialed my sis prepared for a lecture, instead I got:
“Yeah, I agree. You need a change.”
Now I was left with finding a hair-magician brave enough and skilled enough to take on the task.
Luckily I found Lacy.
(remember the hot blonde from a few weeks ago?)
As it turns out (she’s so humble and laid back I’d never have known without a little nosey-ness) she’s a totally legit hairdresser. People fly her all over the country to do their hair, she used to be a stylist at the Belagio in Las Vegas and she owns her own hair extension company. (check that out here)
What she was able to do, with my seven years of black on black on black-dyed-long-thick-fine-hair…was nothing short of a miracle.
DO you guys dig it!?
Are any of you itching to go lighter too?
PS Next week me and Lacy will fill you in on how she was able to do this and the realities and craziness of going this much lighter all at once. Be sure to check back for that post out if you plan on going lighter!
