december hair diaries

Its been almost a month since my last post...wow, that time went by fast.  So much has happened and I've been really sick, but I'll share a few things in the days to come.  

But for today I thought another installment of "The Hair Diaries" would be just perfect. :)  New hair always makes me happy.  

I had been rocking the ombre look since September and it had grown out nicely, but was seriously SO LONG.  So long it was getting caught in things.... embarrassing things...like my armpits.  :P  And it was looking kind of brassy in the places where the red color from before never quite got covered over.  

Of course once I knew it was time for a change I started pinning ideas and a direction seemed to form.... milk chocolate color with lots of dimension and a fresh cut. 

And cutting my hair was a big deal...this year I promised my husband I would go the whole year without getting a drastic cut.  And I did it!!  I can't believe how long it got.  The before pictures really don't even do it justice.  And I didn't do anything drastic with the cut.  Just my favorite chunky layers and clean, healthy ends.  




I am happy with how it turned out.  Its probably the closest to my natural color I've had my hair in a long time.  I think it will be perfect for the winter time...which is just now maybe hitting us.  We've had a couple days of a little snow, but nothing sticking.  That's my kind of winter!

Of course my cousin Hannah was the one who did my color and cut for me.  She is just starting a new adventure herself, she quit the salon she was working at, got her business license and has opened an adorable little studio on the Ave in Wenatchee.  I was so excited to go see her new space and get my hair done there.  I'm so proud of her and I know she's going to do awesome as she progresses forward with this new journey.  



So there is a little hair happiness for today.  Its been a hard month, but I think even this little change is helping.
