Happy May!! And it’s hair day!!! This time tomorrow I’ll be headed to the beach, but not without some “sun-kissed” locks. The thing is, my hair is super dark, so getting the naturally sun-kissed look can be a little more difficult for me.
It took me years–and several bad color jobs–to accept my espresso-toned hair. If you’re a brunette, you can relate. When lightened, brunette hair will either go brassy or ashy. Mine goes brassy–and it’s not cute. Luckily my hair guy (A.C. at The Shop in Bethesda–he’s amazing) has been in control of my locks for over five years now, so he knows how to manage both my hair and me. I always go in with ambitious hair ideas and he brings me back down to Earth, reminding me that the execution of many of my ideas would make me cry for days. And since he’s been right twice before, I just follow his lead. But I don’t think he’ll turn down these inspirations!
Here’s the images I plan to bring in. I think they’re perfect, don’t you!? The hair color is basically like an Ombre approach to highlighting. So not really an ombre… but not really just highlights. I want it to look natural, but not too natural because I still want it to have an slightly edgy appeal. What do you think? Do these images cut it?
