OOTD: Sombre

I mentioned in my last post I had changed my hair, and I would be revealing what I did in this post. 

Having vividly colored hair was fun, but after the nightmare that was trying to remove the blue to dye my hair pink, that resulted in my hair having to be dyed red, I just wanted my hair back. My natural color. But I wasn't about to attempt that on my own. No matter how many home dye jobs you've done, somethings you just should pay someone to do. So I saved up and as soon as I had enough money, I made an appointment with Christie Toffan, and over two different visits, and 8 hours total (5 the first visit, 3 the second) had her take me back to.....


Please excuse the huge stupid grin on my face, I can't even convey how happy I am with my hair. Christie is magic. Seriously. She's always given me a great cut, but I had never had her do my color before.

What I'm wearing: Trench - Express, Dress- Madewell, Shoes- Converse, Necklace - Kate Spade Nails - Essie Braziliant.

Honestly with the state my hair was in before I went to see Christie, with all the layers of red dye, and what was under the red, I never in my wildest dreams expected my hair to turn out this amazing. It's perfect and I am so outrageously happy with it. It's not strictly my natural color. The roots are currently a little bit darker than my natural color, and will fade out to match as my roots grow out. Then she blended baby highlights into my ends which are lighter than my roots, but not too much lighter, for an over all sombre effect.

Makeup: Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moisturizer, Nars Blush, The Balm Highlighter, Nars Satin Lip Pencil, Covergirl The Roses Eyeshadow Palette, Makeup Forever Mascara, NYX Liquid Eyeliner, Maybelline Brow Drama Palette.

Hopefully one of my next posts will include a little interview with Christie and the pictures we took while she was doing my hair.

If you were going to dye your hair for spring,what color would you choose?
