Color + Cut = New Look

Monday, May 07, 2012
They say when we, women, get stressed or are undergoing extreme trauma and emotional what-nots, we usually take it out on our tresses. I'd say that maybe there's a little truth to that. But when I do something to my hair like have it colored or cut, that simply means I want to have a new look! :> I have been sporting the super long hair look for quite sometime now and I find it very tiring to comb long tresses all the time (lazy ass is me). 

Just last Saturday, after my VezTV shoot, I decided to finally go to the salon and get a much-wanted hair makeover (color + cut). I've been a regular at the Nhur Abubakar Hair and Makeup Place basically because the salon has been my sponsor for hair and makeup since 2007! They are located at a new place - Pilar Street, just fronting Print&Paper Specialist. :>

The night before, I was already planning to get the Ash Blonde color for my hair and decided to really go on with it. I scheduled the hair makeover at around 1pm and here are some the photos I took while my hair was being dyed.
Ash Blond Shades
Undergoing Infrared Treatment for the color to really stick.
2nd round for the highlights
Funny face! lmao>:D 
The Before photo was taken around 10am and the After photo was taken at 6pm
 so there's a large difference in makeup freshness. LOL

 So how do you guys find my new look? I know the Ash Blond was not totally achieved because my hair has been dyed three times already prior to this new visit to the salon.. So the color did not really stick on the lower strands. I love the ombre effect though :> But notice how evident the color was on the upper portion? That's because new growth started on that portion already so it could be considered virgin hair. Mommy Nhur also advised me not to bleach my hair to prevent breakage and dryness. 

I'd advise you girls to research first before getting a new hair color :> There is something about cool and warm tones which matches your skin and eye color. You can go visit Hair Styles Design for more information.
