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:
Balayage 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. Read more here.
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.
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!
