There's nothing like a new 'do

I'm pretty boring when it comes to my hair. When I get a cut, I stick to it. For three years straight, I had side-swept bangs because it was the only thing that suited my thinning hair. By some miracle, my hair's grown a bit thicker (let's not jinx it!) and it's more manageable so I decided to try to grow it out. I also decided to get highlights! The last time I had any color other than my natural black was when I was 15. I tried to get highlights a couple of years ago but the results were disastrous and I dyed it back black.

I went to a new place to get my highlights (my fiance's cousin always gets her hair done and swore up and down that they would do a good job). I was getting a wash, cut,
blow-dry and highlights for $40 in Flushing (Queens, New York), so I figured what the heck. It's so cheap that if it sucks, I can always dye it back!

Well, I love my new hair!! It even convinced me to go to a wedding last night that I wasn't going to go to.

Don't I look fab?

Hi Huma,

Sorry, I didn't see your comment before! Thanks for the compliment. I can't say exactly what shade since I got it done in the salon but I basically got copper highlights.

Please do come back and visit :)
