Until senior year of high school, I had never experimented with my hair be it cut or color. It started slowly, (after weeks of begging my mom who despises hair coloring with a passion– because she has beautiful dark brown hair with zero grays,) with adding some highlights to my medium brown mane.
Freshman year of college it got blonder and wilder, as I started to let my Sex & the City obsession take over (I have big, curly hair and convinced myself that I would become Carrie Bradshaw..) After that grew out into an ombre that no person needs to see. Then, I went red, and then dark brown. As I hit junior and senior year of college I kind of let it alone as I was prepping it for my wedding. I wanted to be the most classic form of myself on my wedding day.
After my wedding, I started to toy with the idea of a new look and went for an easy, subtle balayage in the Fall of 2014. Spring 2015 rolled around and it was time for a real change. I researched hair stylists in Dallas, my new home, and found an Instagram that made me fall in love with every.single.picture. I made my appointment and gave the above “before” selfies as a reference point and a couple of inspiration pictures, but didn’t have any one look in mind. I told him that I wanted to sit in the chair and just trust whatever his vision for me was… Boy was that the best thing I’ve ever done for my hair.
Charlie of Hair By Charlie salon is a genius and I am SO happy that I let him work his magic! He wanted to “take me to the next level” and really just stretch the boundaries. I LOVE the results and get complemented on my hair all the time. #blondeambition is real and I have had so much fun with my new ‘do!
