I've wanted to add blue to my hair for quite some time now. I've admired Jeannie Mai's hair (the host of Style Network's show How Do I Look?), and knew I had to try it out for myself.
Before getting the results I've wanted, I had several failed attempts with at-home hair color ('N Rage Color in Cobalt Blue, and Beyond The Zone Color Jamz in Midnight Blue) and also a bad experience at a salon (which I could go into detail about but I won't bash them on my blog; I will, however, warn locals about going there for color services!), all over a course of nearly 3 months. Now I have the hair I wanted!
My hair is "normal" on top, but fun and blue underneath. Perfect to show a little spunk and fun color, while remaining "normal looking" enough to help out at my son's school.
The stylist I went to is freakin' awesome! Her name is Mia and you can find her at Blake & Co. Salon right here in Front Royal, VA! She is a newer stylist there, but trust me when I say that she is AMAZING! She listens to what you want and she won't let you walk out the door unless it looks perfect. She's one of those rare stylists who takes extreme pride in her work, and really cares about each and every cut, color and style she does. I am so happy she came to a local salon near me because now I have my forever stylist! I am almost never 100% happy with any hair color I get; I usually end up buying a box of dye to fix it; but this is the first time I've ever thought my hair color is perfect! I was literally dancing as I was paying because I was so excited to finally get the blue I've wanted!
Okay, so let's start off with how my hair can look "normal"...
Pull it back and BAM!
OH YEAH!! :)
I am so happy with my color and I can't wait to play around with different styles to bring out the blue when I want to and hide it a little when I need to look more normal. I am almost positive I'll keep up with the blue color for a long while! I just love it!!!
Also, last night I did my nails as inspiration for my hair color. I used Essence Colour & Go polish in Just Rock It! with China Glaze polish in Frostbite as the "highlights" on top of the navy blue.
