My new haircut with Sassoon Salon

I love having long hair but I go through these phases of growing it out and growing it out and then BAM I just want a drastic change.  Sassoon Salon in Seattle reached out to me to partner up and I thought what a perfect opportunity to try something new!
Their salon is in downtown so parking was easy in one of the many garages that were around and the salon itself is clean, modern and very pretty.  I loved working with my stylist about what I wanted.  I didn’t just want a cut but I wanted to have my hair colored for the very first time!  They couldn’t even believe it that I had never colored my hair but yes it’s true!  I just have not been interested in coloring my hair until now.  I have a few friends of mine get balayage pretty regularly and I love their hair so I wanted to try it out myself.

Before the chop!  I had my stylist cut my hair right under my shoulders.  I think it was like 6 inches so it was a big chop!  For the balayage I asked for it to be natural, not to bright but enough to be noticeable.  If you don’t know what balayage is, I grabbed this definition for you:

is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a
sun-kissed natural looking hair colour – similar to what nature gives us
as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The
principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks.

Here it is the day after the salon visit!  As you can see the color is VERY bright.  I asked for it to be subtle and he assured me that the color would darken up after a few washes.

And here it is about a week later.  I’m loving not only the hair cut but the color as well.  And being that I have super thick hair, my long hair was getting to be difficult to manage.  I love having the short hair and it being easier on me to style.  The only thing is I can’t just leave it, I have to curl it or style it every day or it just looks really boring.  But I don’t mind it, it’s fun and I like the new look!

My experience with the Sassoon Salon was so great.  Everyone there was so nice and the stylist that cut my hair really understood how to work with my super thick hair and how to thin it out a little to make it more manageable but not look like it was thinned out.  I love the layers that she did so that when I curl my hair it lays just right.  

I will be partnering with Sassoon for a few more posts so you might see some new styles on me.  I’m super excited to try different things out with my hair since I’ve been so boring for the past few years!

Thank you to Lisa Baber, Creative Director and Carmen Gallnader, Color Director who gave me my pretty new hair!
