Why do they say blondes have more fun? There are several different blondes from yellow to ash blonde, dirty blonde you get it. I really don’t know. However I say, platinum blondes have more fun.
I booked an appointment with Nez my stylist and said let’s go blonde. I had several blonde looks that I was interested in. However, when I sat down he said “Are we going platinum?” I almost cried. Why? I personally can’t stand it when other stylists would comment that I need to have three different appointments at $170+ a shot. I said YES and called the babysitter to tell her that it will be an extra two hours and not just the two I planned for. Would you complain?
Nez gave me a few warnings:
- Your hair is going to be damaged! Frizz? Watch out, your hair is damaged
- Invest in a good violet coloring shampoo, conditioner and mask. Yes, I need to really take care of my hair. Don’t wash it more than three times a week otherwise the hair will turn a little violet.
- Don’t forget to dry your hair and gently brush out the hair. (Gulp: I lost globs of hair in my brush but I save them for those faux hair buns.)
- Touch ups are going to be needed every six weeks. ( I am okay with that. That just means I get to get a really good blowout too.)
What Nez didn’t tell me how much I would love my new hair color and the journey of finding the perfect red lipstick. Or how the curl will stay a lot easier because the hair is damaged! Now that rocks because I collect curlers. Three different types of hot rollers, sponge rollers and rag curls.
What did my girls think?
Marybelle the twin “Oh mommy you are so CUTE!”
Rosie the twin “Mommy you have white hair.”
Stella the 7 year old “Mommy take off your wig, I don’t like it, take it off.”
My dear friend in South Africa mentioned that I look like a movie star. I will take that right?
My mother-in law whispered to my father-in law while we were FaceTiming “Das sieht nicht gut aus an Becky.” I heard that Oma… Yes, I need more color on my face, I know. Those Germans are honest ja?
I think you are right, I need to change my social media profile pics to reflect the platinum. I know it is staying put!
Remember I am not a hair or makeup expert. I am learning how the tricks of platinum in progress and will share with you as I learn.
