⚜️Every six months give or take I color & cut my hair. It’s a monumental task both financially ( with my length and thickness the bill is usually $$$💸) & in terms of ⏰time invested both in searching for the best colorist and hair dresser ( with the exception of two ladies with whom I could rest assured that my hair was in safe & capable hands🙌🏻 my hair coloring & cutting experience has been a hit and miss for the most part 😒) & the time spent on the actual coloring and styling process ( 3-4 hours, on occasion I have even endured 6 hours in the stylist’s chair 😳)
⚜️Apparently finding a good colorist and hair dresser in one is a nearly impossible task. You can either have one or the other🙄. I have experienced hair disasters ranging from my hair being longer on one side shorter on the other, walking out with a giant raccoon 🦝like white streak in my hair ( too much bleach that one time 😫) having my bangs cut so short I looked like a toddler with an at home hair cut gone predictably wrong and having my dark hair turned almost old lady mousy 🐀brown.
⚜️Over the last two years however I have been lucky enough to find the right colorist/stylist who understands my hair color to complexion balance ( I don’t want to go blonde or ash or any where close to that color family pleaseeee🙏🏼) and who doesn’t insist on painting ruler straight, obvious as hell highlights in my hair.
⚜️I am not much for experimenting when it comes to hair color and usually all I request is to go a little lighter and have color that adds dimension without being in your face noticeable.
⚜️So today I had something similar in mind when I headed down to @mindandsensespa for my appointment. And as usual they did not disappoint🥰. Despite my stylist being an hour late she had me done in 3 hours color and cut done as per my request. ( I highly recommend having picture to show your stylist it minimizes confusion). So here is the before and after of my hair transformation 🤩🥰.
⚜️Well I’m thrilled 🤩to be honest. Let me know what you guys think and share your hair transformation ✂️stories with me 🥰
