This is for the girls… ’cause we were talking about going grey. If you’ve been following the Hair Adventures obsessively (which worries me) you might remember that I started putting in blonde highlights when my hair started going silver, then I didn’t like the effect, so I stopped.
It wasn’t the highlights so much as my stylist’s … well. Someone tells me she shouldn’t have needed to dye over the highlights to cool down the tone. That kind of made the whole thing moot, ’cause the dye-over to cool the tone down dyed out my silver! So much for cleverly camoing the silver in with gold.
I like my silver hair, even though it’s not my color and I probably will do something else with it eventually. Maybe I’ll dye-over a light blonde, give my hair as a whole a warm cast and golden up the silver? Don’t worry – I will consult a professional!
This is what it looks like now. What bugs me is that the corners of my hair are very short, baby fine, and *white*, so I don’t have as much hair there as I used to (although I do have hair) but oy – it looks like I’m going bald. 😦 Front pic so you can see that nope, I’m going *white*.
Hair is white-white-silver-white, not grey, not at all grey. It’s very difficult to take pix of white hair, if you’d wondered. Here you go – quick pix after a day at the zoo, well-covered with shiny sunscreen. 🙂
Adding a pic of the new cut ’cause. Also, I was pretty traumatized not to be allowed a light bang – I wanted it to soften up the face, but the corner situation here means I don’t have the hair to make it work. There is no woman on any planet who wants to be told she doesn’t have enough hair. But oh well!
Cut 6″ or so off the back, see how much healthier it is? Okay, it was full of product and had been blown straight and could use some brushing, not idly tossing over my shoulder… but soooo much better.
