Out of This World Transformation

Phew!  It was a hectic weekend (sort of).  I'm sure it felt more crazy than it was due to the fact that I had been beaten down by a head cold.  I was lucky enough to be able to help a hair stylist friend out and participate with her in a hair competition on Sunday (uh, hello free haircut and colour!!).  Not so lucky to have a head full of cement at the same time, but I persevered. 

So starting on Friday I began the preliminary transformation.  And in the span of 4 days I sported 4 different hair styles. 

The first pic was just plain old me!  The second picture was after two bleach out sessions and one colour wash attempt at magenta.  The last picture is what I'm actually sporting now - A more work appropriate hue, brown (but currently darker than it should be because of all the magenta underneath).  The below picture is actually after a second colour rinse (to further enhance and brighten the magenta) and sitting under the hot spot lights on a stage for 45 minutes while the lovely Miss Erin (hair stylist extraordinaire) Coursol cut off all my luscious (fried) locks. 

So I'm tired just typing it out, four hair makeovers in as many days.  No wonder my follicles are aching!  It was a pretty decent experience.  Unfortunately Erin didn't place this time around and that's no fault of the audience that's for sure.  We had total randoms coming up to us to tell us before the winners were announced that we should be taking top prize and after they were announced, we had people telling us that was a bullshit call and we had been robbed (ok those are more my words but the message was the same).  Which was a tiny, silver lining in Erin's day.  The masses loved her.  That's really what was important.  Oh and of course Vincent Petti voted us number 2!   And he's like totally a celebrity in the hair world, dontchyaknow? 

So now I'm just trying to figure out how to rock this hair style, it's a big change for me.  Bold and daring but I'm digging.  And of course I secretly like that Eric thinks I look like a Romulan from Star Trek.   


  1. I wish you could have left it magenta! Love it!

  2. The magenta is freaking awesome. The brown is nice. It's work appropriate. But the magenta? Kicks ASS.

  3. Thanks ladies. The corporate world frowns upon individuality dontchyaknow? ;)

  4. :( I dunno.... I do like the bangs... but I liked your long hair!!
