Hair Outfits

New hair & new outfit

I’m BAAAAAACK!
As you may have guessed I decided to go back dark.
I can’t stop smiling about it, I feel so at home!
To keep it looking natural I was encouraged…or rather forced by Lacy to go dark brown and not black.
(I think she’s a little traumatized from our blonding experience, I promise I didn’t put her through as much abuse this time around)
I love the rich chocolate brown and I can’t believe how healthy it looks.
Of course it also helps that I have some beauuuutiful clip-ins. I’ll show you more about that whole business later this week but I want to tell you now that ever since I felt these I can’t stop petting them.

But since it feels like the last few posts have been all about me I thought it would be good to include a cute outfit idea and GIVEAWAY for this adorable shirt. It’s such a pretty color and a soft, floaty fabric.

White pants and two-year olds aren’t exactly a match made in heaven. I wore these from the house to the movie and somehow they got dirty somewhere in there.
It was Christian’s first movie at a theater, Monster’s University. On the way there I told him I might get scared so he said he’d protect me and although I worried he wouldn’t wanna sit for that long he lasted the whole time and only started getting fidgety the last 10 minutes.
On the way home he said,”That’s my favorite movie. It’s soo funny!”

    You look much better in dark hair, IMO. It brings out the gorgeous blues of your eyes! Luv the shirt, may even fit me as I am a “curvaceous” petite!

    LOVE the hair…You were meant to be a brunette;))) Glad you feel more like yourself. Nothing worse than looking in the mirror, and not being comfortable with how you look knowing something is just “off”. Did the same thing when I put blondish highlights in my chocolate brown hair. Just looked in the mirror, and didn’t recognize myself!

    When I first “met” you on here by following your blog I thought, oooo black hair. So pretty. Then you went blond and I thought, ooooo yes! Blond! But this chocolate brown? Amazing! :0)

    P.S. I don’t know why but the story of your son reminds me of when we took our now 10-year-old to see a “real” Thomas the Train in a nearby city. He used to say “me” instead of “I.” So when he saw Thomas for the first time he got so excited he said, Mommy! Mommy! Me hug you Mommy!

    Ah, memories. ;0)

    My youngest daughter just turned 13 and wants to go see Monster’s University because Monster’s Inc was the first movie she saw in a theater at the age of 2! Also, I typically think that a person’s natural hair color looks best with the rest of her coloring but the dark totally works for you! I’m sure it helps that you’re a color guru!

    You’d look amazing even if you were bald! As a salon owner/stylist I do love the rich brown on you though! Makes your eyes POP more! I’m a blonde but I’d love to be sporting that beautiful top too ๐Ÿ™‚

    LOVE your beautiful brown hair! I feel like we’ve got our Cara back! My hair was dark like your for my wedding recently and I did the same thing and am in the same dilemma you were last week. I’m always jealous of blondes and their beautifully sunshine hair but you make me love being a dark brunette. Love the shirt and the story about your jeans BTW! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you are back!! Love the hair. I’m itching to do mine too because I made the mistake of going to a salon on recommendation of an aquaintance, and I told the hairdresser I wanted Ombre, well she didn’t do what I wanted. I brought a picture of a dark hairdoo with copper ombre on the ends. She turned my whole head practically red, (my natural hair is dark brown, so she really only had to do the ends!), but I’m a trusting idiot, and before I knew it, (200.00 dollars later, my husband had a fit!), I didn’t get what I wanted. Miserable start to the Summer ๐Ÿ™

Definitely, one of the things that I love about your blog is your clear devotion to finding beauty in everyone and helping anyone/everyone to recognize and see their own beauty and really feel beautiful. However, it is worth acknowledging that this isn’t something that necessarily comes naturally; it can be a struggle at times, particularly as people tend to be so hard on themselves. I think having some exposure to a working model of struggle, coping, and persistence is really beneficial. Thanks for being open and sharing your journey with us!

You’re absolutely stunning. Now … i’ve mentioned before … can you help on how to minimize under eye creasing? I recently bought Olay/Covergirl Primer and it has helped a ton, but I think the problem is my application technique. I was patting with finger (tons of crease lines) then switched it up and started using a brush (improvement – creasing has minimized but still there). HELP??!!

    Following on Instagram! Thank you for all of your posts. After finding your blog on Pinterest this past winter, I have been obsessed (and a H-A-C addict!). I appreciate how you focus on both outward and inward beauty. With appearance and beauty tips, I feel like you are the least intimidating blogger out there. The way you break down each step makes the beauty technique approachable and encourages us unconfident make-up appliers to try something new (and be successful!) It has been so refreshing this week to be reminded of how important it is focus on others, especially in the selfish season of swimsuits, vacations, and date nights. Your honesty is truly admirable and an inspiration to others.

    There is nothing worse that feeling like you have bad hair. I just paid to have my hair streaked for the first time ever (I have always done it myself) and I HATED it. It has taken me about three weeks to reverse streak it back to nearer my natural color. Your hair looks fabulous either way, but I am glad you feel better, you sure look happier ๐Ÿ™‚ that is the main thing!!

    You look so beautiful with dark hair! This encourages me to have a more natural color for myself. I have been blonde for years now and I always think about going back to darker shades ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks for the post! I love your entire outfit by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love your naturally dark hair. I have been following you doing your blonde journey and I have to say that I was contemplating going blonde this summer. I’m a school teacher so I figured summer would be the perfect time, not so many Mrs. Knutsen what happened to your hair questions. I have always been a dark brunette and dabbled in foils here and there but I thought I would do my big debut as a true blonde blonde. I’m talking OMG not recognizing myself in the mirror blonde. but after your personal story I have officially decided not to do it. It’s a very long process not to mention the $$$ aspect to get it done and then the upkeep. And I feel that I would eventually go back to brunette before school started again. Anyways it puts my mind a rest with your decision to go back to the dark side. LOL!

    […] Maskcara went back to black (well actually brown). She was gorgeous as a blonde, but she is one of my favorite brunettes (next to all the brunette beauties that make up my family tree). Warning: looking at her photos will make you want to dye your hair brown! […]

    Following you in Insta. My hair is a light brown mousy color, I have always had lots of blonde highlights. I have been trying to grow out my hair for 3 years and it always stays the same length due to breakage. I have tried chocolate brown at home and always end up with too much red. Can you PRETTY PLEASE ask you sister what she used to I can tell my stylist? I absolutely love the shade of brown!!!!!

    Love the chocolate brown – it’s perfect. Makes your hair look so healthy but not too dark, still highlights curls and texture. Will you share what you used in going dark (from blonde & back!)
