It was finally time. My hair had grown out enough from my early-September buzz cut and I needed the boost. It was time for purple. I first colored my hair purple way back during the hotel years as a joke, for Halloween. I found some over the counter stuff and I really liked it. Didn’t show up much on the black part of my hair but really set off the grey (of which I had much less at that time). Since then, I’ve done it on and off, but the last time I really colored my hair was for our wedding, and by the time the actual day rolled around, the purple had faded into a kind of maroon color which was okay is it exactly matched the outfit I wore. Still, I was a bit disappointed as I really like PURPLE hair.
So, I made an appointment today with my lovely stylist Arleen and G and I headed over there today. It was also the first snow of the season here, we have no idea when our furnace will be going in and I was feeling a bit drab:
As you can see, my hair has grown out quite a bit–and has way more “salt” in it now. All for the good as Arleen went to work at once:
She actually used two different colors a purple and a brilliant blue, which got me even more jazzed. I want to change the meaning of the phrase, “blue-haired old lady”!
After I was sufficiently coated, I popped under the dryer to process and read People magazine, my favorite salon pastime. Then it was time to do the washout:
Even with cold water, having someone else wash your hair is a treat. Then, she added a touch of leave in conditioner and I was ready for whatever.
The flash kinda washes it out, but it really is vivid. I think I have a bit of a Simon Cowell look going, only I’m a lot nicer than he is even at my grumpiest. 😉
And finally, my signature “look”:
I am totally ready for Halloween, tricks, treats and everything in between. Nothing like a little purple to lift your spirit!
Boo everybody! Oh, and GS1’s first B-ball game is tonight too, so send out some good vibes for a WIN!
