Hi ladies & happy Monday! How was your weekend?
On Friday night, I went to get my hair done for the first time in almost two years (!!!). If you follow on Snap (I'm acoest1984), you saw the outcome and after living with it over the weekend, I'm not totally happy. That said, she mentioned it would lighten more as I wash it, so I'm going to give it a few washes to see where we stand.
Essentially, I asked to bring up the blonde in my balayage, lighten around my face and in my bang, keep my natural base colour, and used this as my inspiration photo. She did a great job blending, and the blonde came out quite beige, however, I am really bummed there isn't a huge contrast between the brown and blonde. It definitely looks natural, I was just hoping for brighter blonde.
All that to say, I'll keep you posted on how it plays out after a few washes. You can see an after pic in the photo below, which was taken Saturday afternoon.
