The ultimate beauty whore finally took care of her blinding black roots!!! I love beauty - and I love great hair - but I still get SO nervous when someone new touches my luscious locks.
With a bit of trepidation, I went to see the highly-sought after, West Coast Baliage specialist, George Papanikolas, at the newly opened (and amazingly chic) Andy Lecompte Salon. I've mentioned before that I often quip I have million-dollar hair (because of the amount of money I've spent on cuts, color, blow-outs, products, more color, more cuts), so needless to say, I can be a bit of a pain in the stylist's chair.
We were going for a sun-kissed, au-natural, bright look... I wanted the color gold (yes, like the commodity - the only thing worth any money these days!). When I'm meant to fill out forms that ask my hair color, I always write in "gold." It leaves men very confused...
Here's how it all went down:
I walked into the salon with THESE roots...
After a quick baliage (click HERE to get a play-by-play on baliage), my head was covered with a plastic bag. Armed with the October InStyle Magazine (which, by the way, is amazing - such great beauty tips and products and even better fashion trend forecasting), I was sent to the heaters.
After about 30 minutes under the heater, my hair was washed, my roots were glossed with a clear gloss (to break the darkness) and Joico's K-Pak (a heavy-duty conditioning treatment) was slathered on my locks to ensure a healthy, moisturized, tangle-free mane.
No more roots - just pure, golden sexiness!
What do YOU think about the new color?
