So on top of everything else that happened last week, I had my hair colored again. I really wanted it blonde before our family portrait so I went to see my sponsor and favorite colorist Tina Scoville Salvucci at the Color Boutique. She decided to pack my head full of foils with two different shades of blonde.
When she took off the foils and I looked in the mirror I was really surprised. It looked so much blonder but I wasn’t just to seeing myself again. The even weirder thing is that each shade lighter we go back towards my original color, the less I like my hair. She does a great job of keeping my hair healthy while constantly changing the color, but I am missing brown. Yes, you heard me right, I actually miss the dark brown. WEIRD!
I have to say once again she has given me a hair color I have never before experienced. That is the best part of this journey. Whether I love the color, hate the color or am indifferent, she has enabled me to try practically every variation from blonde to brown and now back to blonde.
Never in my entire life could I imagine I might prefer being a brunette to a blonde. I have already warned Lou that once we complete the journey in September I might just go back brown. He is NOT happy with this idea but sadly for him I don’t care which he prefers. I guess I should but I am the one who has to look in the mirror not him.
My mother loves the new color as it is almost back to “normal” and my neighbor said I looked much younger blonde. Really? Lou likes it because it is lighter and Tiara could care less. It always amazes me that she doesn’t even seem to notice when I change the color.
As for the family portrait we never got it done. My BF Mara showed up and I was beyond exhausted, my voice was gone, I was in tears, Tiara’s hair looked like a madman, Lou was sweating from running around, Tabitha hadn’t gotten on her make up and I didn’t have one ounce of energy left to cajole anyone into doing anything. Trinity was dressed and looking fabulous but she was the only one ready. After Mara realized we were a lost cause and it wasn’t going to happen, we sat down and drank some wine. She stayed for dinner and we just chilled out.
As for Trinity at camp, I woke up again last night in a panic thinking about her at camp. I saw a bunch of new pictures of her today and she looked beyond happy. I am officially done worrying, it is obvious she is having a blast.
One last thing, I HATE taking a picture of myself after each color change. My nose keeps growing like Pinocchio. I mean It seems to be widening and growing in length, how crazy is that? Plus I haven’t gotten my Botox in an effort to save money and my under eye wrinkles are now touching my cheek wrinkles. I hate when the two areas merge, it is a sure sign I am in trouble.
So ignore my face and only look at the hair color!
