I was planning on saving this post for tomorrow, but I ever so stupidly forgot to take the pictures for my OOTD post before I got my hair done. Therefor I decided to reveal my hair today so that I could post the pictures of the outfit tomorrow. There is kind of a preview of the outfit on the right. It's very casual, cool. Also, before I start I'd like to apologize for the picture quality. They're iPhone pictures taken in my bathroom (the before) and my best friend's bathroom (the after). So not only are they kind of bad pictures, but the colors are different. My teeth aren't actually that yellow! Ah! But without any further delays...
Here it is! My hair before I got it done and after I got it done. I was really back and forth about whether or not I should get straight across bangs so I asked my stylist if I got side bangs cut if I could use clip in bangs and if they would look normal, but she said she wasn't so sure so I crossed that off. I kept thinking and thinking about it and as you can see I got bangs, but my stylist suggested I get bangs that I can style straight across and to the side which worked out perfectly for me. I absolutely love it! Although I will admit that I was really nervous at first. Luckily my sister was there because she scheduled a last minute appointment at the same time as me with a different stylist and she talked me into it.
Unfortunately I didn't get to get all of my hair back to the natural color yet, just highlights which lightened it up a lot. I'm happy with the way that it turned out, it just isn't want I imagined. It's so close to my natural color I can't even complain. Next time it'll be completely back to normal, but I don't think I'll go back until November. Or October at the earliest. She thought the smell of the dye would bother me too much if I got it done completely today being pregnant and she was 150% correct! I got sick just from the highlights and I was holding a towel over my face. It was horrible. Once it was done though I almost cried I was so excited (dang, hormones!).
As far as the cut goes I didn't do anything but get layers and have it trimmed. I didn't want it to be too much shorter because I want my hair to grow out, but it was driving me crazy that I didn't have any dimension to my hair at all. It was just brown and flat and cut straight because of the way I got it cut when I had it cut short. Now it's a lot better and once it grows out for a week or two it'll be absolutely amazing.
What do you guys think of my new hair? Does it work for me or should I style it differently? How do you want to get your hair cut?
