So my daughter has been wanting to dye her hair for a few months, and I've said no for those few months. Then I visited my buddy Rea's blog and saw that L'oreal offers an ombre hair DIY color kit. I thought - Hey, why not? Well, it didn't work out, because my daughter wanted her ends RED, not blond. Go figure! Just my luck. Besides that, though, hair dyes contain lots of chemicals, and I wanted something eco-friendly.
I did end up taking her to the salon, and this is what her hair now looks like:
And here's a cute hairstyle that she tried too:
I've never dyed my hair or anything like that. I've been told my hair is a hairstylist's dream, because it's so "untouched." I don't do anything with it (besides throw it in a ponytail), really - which is funny, because back in middle school and high school, I would spend hours (literally HOURS) on just my hair. Every time I cut my hair, I usually cut at least 6-8 inches off (it grows incredibly fast) and donate it. But I have long, super straight hair all the time.
If you like this cute side ponytail, here's a quick youtube video for you. =0)
