The First Time In Eight Years

The last time I colored my hair was my junior year of college and it was short and I only used like 1/3 of the bottle from the box. I didn't even own a digital camera back then but I'm sure I have a film print in a shoe box under my bed. I stopped coloring because of the upkeep and I'm not really a high maintenance kind of girl when it comes to grooming. Some days I wish I was but the curls are hard enough to tame as it is.

However, this weekend is our annual RVA weekend and I saw a few days ago that Holly had gotten a new hair cut and I decided I needed a little something-something myself. Then I saw that Elsie had scheduled an appointment to get her hair colored red and that Holly's still looked red. So this weekend Emma will be the only non-redhead in the bunch. Well, besides the bald babies.

It's nice having a little change of scenery. Who else is going red this fall?

xoxo,
Rachel

I went really "Hot Red" about 3 weeks ago. I was actually trying to darken my very blonde hair when it turned green!!!! The red was a fixer that i ended up falling in love <3 with, although because I'm light its fading already :(

Mandy said...

I dyed my hair red for the first time this summer... I'm still getting used to it but my husband loves it!

greta said...

Love it! Seriously though, how do you maintain bangs that want to curl? My hair is naturally curly and very similar to yours. I have an unfortunately large forehead and would LOVE to do bangs, but Im worried about them curling up the minute the minute I encounter any sort of humidity. Whats your secret?

connally said...

i want to go red! right now, i have my natural light brown-auburnish hue. but the second i have some spare change (never really!) i am going dark red. :)

your hair looks gorgeous by the way!
