Highlights for Faux Color

This summer got the best of me and I did not get to blog as much as I had hoped.  It was also a time for a change! A new look was in the process of starting.

It began with the keratin treatment to get rid of my fizz, which I have already talked about in previous blogs (click the link above to read more). This tamed my hair and helped me manage it.  For a while my hair was really straight, but as you can see from the photos my curls have returned just without the frizz.  As a reminder this treatment usually last me about 6-months.

The second step was a good hair cut.  I had the dead ends chopped off and added lots of layers.

Last but not least I got highlights! Since I was just about to start high school I decided I wanted a really fun change.  I actually wanted more of an ombre look, but with just having had the keratin treatment I didn’t want to take a chance on my frizz coming back, so highlights it was!

The first day I went in to get them done, my hair was too brassy (more orange than blonde), so I came in again about a week later to tone the orange color. This time my hair dresser fixed it and it was lovely (at least to me)!  Hair coloring is tricky, especially the first time you get one because you really don’t know what color your hair is going to pull once bleach and other colors are added.  I also learned that just when you think you love the color, it can change over time especially with being in chlorine pools and outside in the sunshine.  My color even looks different depending on if my hair is curly or straight!

Straight (this is the day I got the highlights in July…the color is a little more orange than I wanted)

Curly (this is my hair now, about a month later, in August…you can see how the orange color has been toned down and that my curls are back)

    1. Thank you so much!My hair stylist started off by foiling it with bleach and then toning it with a blue toner later on to make it less brassy. I pretty much just experimented to get it to look the best that I could with my hair color since it was my first time. Hope this helped a bit!
