New year - New Hair!

New Year - New Hair!

I've joined the majestic unicorn club and decided to take my natural golden blonde hair to a GORGEOUS metallic rose gold. But first, some backstory.

Right before Christmas I went in to get my hair trimmed and my hairdresser and I were chatting about Guy Tang and how we both LOVE his metallic hair creations. You know, one thing led to another and all of a sudden she goes "We should totally do that to your hair! You have virgin hair and I really want to enter the Guy Tang Hair Battle for Metallics!" I was super apprehensive, my hair was virgin hair, I hadn't done ANYTHING to it in about 7 years. But after talking it over with my fiance and a few family members I decided to just go for it. It will grow back the same way every single time - and I was ready for a change.

Fast forward to Sunday January 3rd, 2016 @ 9AM. I arrived at my hair salon and the whole process began. By 9:30am my hair was being bleached (the first time) and after a short wait my hair was very, very blonde. Next came the the second round of bleach and my roots - which in all honesty it didn't hurt quite as much as I expected it to. I expected a terrible stinging but it didn't really bother me much at all. After that second bleach it was time for some violet toner and a quick nap while I sat.
While I was sitting, it was her chance to mix up the colors that were going on my hair. We were going for a rosey metallic - so we went in with shades of pink and purple (it's wayy more complicated than that, but I see colors in a mixing bowl and not much else). So she applied those colors to my hair and after a short sit my hair had magically transformed into a beautiful unicorn!

ANNND - the finished product:

I am SOO in love with my new hair.
