Hair Diaries

I got my hair did y'all!! But don't get excited. For many of you this is no biggie, but for a girl rocking a walker this is quite an accomplishment. Plus I hate it. It takes HOURS. I have really long hair and a tender head. 

 My mom picked me up and told me I need to change my shirt because I looked like I slept in it. "No it doesn't!!" I replied. "Did you sleep in it?" She asked. 

 Ok, shirt changed and off to the salon. This time she told me we were going someplace different. Not the place we always go to, Michael Raymond Salon. But she got a Groupon for a place called In Luv with Hair. Note that love is spelled Luv. So yeah, I was a little worried. 

 I sat patiently as Terrence yanked through my knots. I tell him I like my color but it's a little yellowy. I'd like to be a little more natural. Closer to my roots (which is still pretty light, I would say dirty blonde)but still blonde. He told me the plan: full Color and highlights, plus a cut. Woah. makeover here. Now I'm frightened.

 Terrence and I got to talking about our dogs and we became fast friends. 

 Here's me biding my time in my chair. Just got my highlights then we will do all over color. 

 Then came the worst part: the rinse. I hate it. No, I loathe it. Having my neck in that position for longer than 2 minutes is torture. After he's done washing it I take my hair in my hand and I can see it. Brown. Like poop brown. 
Ok now he starts drying it, assuring me that it will get lighter as he blow dries it. And my lip starts quivering. I am holding back the tears. Not only is it brown. It is brown with white streaks in it. Which to me looks a whole lot like gray.

My mom pays as I head to the car. As soon as I'm in I am bursting into tears. (Don't worry I took a pic during the tears)
This looks like dark ashy mud if you ask me.

I try to put on some makeup to see if I will look better once I'm all done up.

No, just scary. And apologies on the duck face.

I even tried smiling.

How about pulled back?

No. It's awful. I look ready to be a brownish grey haired witch with a limp. Looks like I'm going to have to take another trip to the salon.

have you ever had a bad hair experience??


  1. What? I think it looks good!! But if you're not happy with it, you do need to go back. Trust me...I've had quite a few bad experiences.

    Your salon needs to get a better seat so you can enjoy that hair rinse!!

  2. I don't think it looks bad at all!!!! I've definitely had bad hair experiences - they will totally fix it if you don't like it

  3. ohhh my gosh I used to be a hair stylist and this is insane. You told him you wanted not so yellowy and you ended up with brown. biggest problem with hairstylists they don't LISTEN to their clients!

    I am sorry love, hope it gets all fixed soon, but even though it is not what you wanted, it still looks great on you!

    1. That is true, Hallie. Have come out of the salon one time with BARNEY PURPLE hair. smh What I always do now is ask them for color swatches if they have them. Point out which color will be whole head, and the other highlights. Then ask ask him/her again before the procedure "What colors are we using again?" So they can reiterate my request.

  4. I don't think it looks bad! But I definitely get why you're so upset...he seriously did nothing that you asked. You know I've had a bad experience too, so at least you aren't alone!

  5. Haha, you're so cute! I think it actually doesn't look that bad, but I know any switch from what's normal is rough. Maybe live with it for a day or two and see what you think?


  6. I think that you look fabulous!!!

  7. i would have had a fit honestly! i am so particular about my hair, sorry about the bad experience. i like your hair straighten if it is any consolation

  8. Girl, I think it looks good!!!! And it will fade!! BUT, I have had horrible, nightmare salon experiences and they SUCK!!! At least it's not a bad haircut...color can easily be fixed...growing hair back is what takes forever! Chin up!

  9. I love it!! Are you really crying in that pic girl?? It looks gorg cheer up not to mention you could but anything on your head and still look fantastic!

  10. I like it!! Give it a couple days to get used to it. I've had one of those experiences though. It's like a train wreck you can't stop but you see it happening! Argh!!

  11. I can see why you're upst, if he totally ignored what you asked him to do! That has happened to me in the past and I really was NOT a happy camper! :/

    I hope you get someone else to fix it!

    Dropping by from the blog hop. :)

  12. The worst part for me is if I don't like it, I am not brave enough to say anything. Lame, I know. Sometimes, that's why I put off going.

    And your dog and the deer...too funny.

    Just stopping by from Ashlyn's blog.
    have a great weekend.

  13. Really? I think it looks fabulous!
    Thanks for sharing your break-down with us, we've all been there and it's very relatable. :)

    I’d like to invite you to join us at the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

    I hope to see you there!

  14. A hairdresser turned my hair Ronald McDonald red then purple to fix it ... it was seriously the hottest mess ever.


  15. 1) you look SO SAD in that pic, I just want to scoop you up and give you a hug.
    2) you're a cute crier, I hate you.
    3) SUN IN, YESSSS!!

  16. I'm sorry to have to tell you that those evil Republicans are using your picture to spread lies about Obamacare. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=700646903328775&set=a.401034789956656.90394.389658314427637&type=1&theater

  17. I think it looks gorgeous on you, but I get why you're upset. Once I went to get my hair cut when my hair was down to around my elbows and I asked for just a trim so guess what she does... She cuts it right up to my chin.... 😩 (bearing in mind I had to go to school with that)



I love to hear from ya!
