I went lighter! Y'all have no idea how patiently I waited to color my hair and go light. My skin is very pale so having lighter hair actually will make me "glow" (According to Julie my new colorist extraordinaire)

Who: Stylist|| Julie What: Colored my hair - Balayage Where: Pika Pika Hair Salon in Duluth, GA

I live in the city of Atlanta so the drive was half an hour, but you don't get your hair done every week so the drive once in a while really isn't that bad. Plus, I had my Spotify and was belting out Tamar Braxton's Love & War like a maniac in the car the whole way.

I had such an awesome experience because going into it I was fully confident in her. I was referred by a friend named Rachel to get my hair colored by Julie and it helped that she had a great archive of her work on Instagram. [I TELL YOU GUYS, SOCIAL MEDIA IS POWERFUL IF USED WISELY. Actually, it's powerful even when it isn't used wisely.]

Before & After

She's extremely personable & her work ethic is engrained in her veins. Found myself not only a new colorist, but a great person in Georgia! I just couldn't wait for the finished look.

Did I mention that no bleach was used for this color process?

Before & After

Her technique is with color waxing that I had never heard of before but considering I got a steam perm not too long ago, my hair feels great and I feel like this is a hair color that's going to stick with me for a while.

Now all I have to do is take care of it by adding hair oil at the ends after I shower and remember to BRUSH my hair.

TIP: Always do your research before doing something drastic to your hair. You won't regret it. The latter? Yes, you will regret it.
