to do or not to do

So growing up I was a blond. Now some history for ya -  as I got older my hair starting turning from blonde to dirty blonde to brunette. Alas I was at the age when going to the salon for coloring was acceptable, and living in California, so until 4 years ago I was a blonde (read all-over highlights every 6 weeks like clockwork!).  After a big break-up with my HS BF (yes, If you are good at math I dated my HS BF for nearly 10 yrs, OY what you do as a youngin! hehe) I went brunette, and that is where I have been ever since! 

I love it, it definitely fits me and is much easier to maintain...except I have to cover some pesky grays (thanks Mom!)!!! But in my upcoming appointment I'm thinking that I want to change it up a bit. No I am not coming back from a salon appointment a blonde....just need something to change it up. Here are some photos I've saved from the 'net (can't remember where, sorry) that I keep coming back to. I don't want 'ombre' but maybe a hint of it, but not. I want the 'I was out in the sun for far to long a while ago - sexy color'.....Sure, I know thats just how I'll explain it! 



Both of these are from Season 6 of Sex in the City, Carries hair here is my inspiration. And if you were (are) slightly obsessed with that show, like I was in college - specifically her hair in the episode where she decides to move to Paris. 

Everything about this whole look, really works for me.

Thoughts? Honestly, your opinions on why or why not are totally and whole heartedly welcome & desired! You are like my friends - so spill!!!! I know I can trust you - The Hubs just says "sure uh-huh, don't what you want babe!" 

Happy St Patty's Day Loves & a BIG HAPPY Dating ANNIVERSARY HUBS!!!! Happy 4 years - I love you more than I did the day we got married, you are my world and I can't wait for all the fun that lies ahead of us!

  1. I think that the last picture would be a great fit for you. if you don't want too much of the ombre trend, you can just get a little hint like you said. A coworker of mine got a hint of ombre and it looks divine on her. Give it a try, you might love and if not, you can always go back and color over it.

  2. I love this idea. Hope you give it a try! And so perfect for summer

  3. I have been toying with the same idea, but nervous because of the up-keep :/ I say go for it though- sophisticated and fun.

  4. First of all, you are gorgeous and will look beautiful with any color hair. But I definitely say do it because I've seen you in a range of color and again, you always look FAB! And as 'things that sparkle' said - perfect for summer! Can't wait to see it! xoxo

  5. I so miss my true blonde days... I am still blonde but it is starting to get darker as i get older too .... ugh WHY!!!!

  6. We probably have the same natural color honestly. I tried to go dark, but just feel it's not me. My natural color is a very mousy, light brown. I say go for it! My colorist actually doesn't use bleach so it looks really natural (Brooke at George the Salon). I've read that your best color is the color you had growing up. I was really blond as a kid but now my hair is probably the shade I had in jr high (a dark dark blonde).

  7. i was born with black hair (crazy!) and then it turned blonde, no joke. i had really light hair growing up and now i'm more of a dirty blonde/caramel brown. my hair stylist really loves to try to make me too blonde which really irritates me since i don't want to look like a fake blonde when it's legit! so now i'm as close to my natural color with some highlights.

    i let my hair grow out and since i'm super close to my natural color it has an ombre look to it...darker roots, lighter throughout. i love it, my stylist told me to come back in for highlights. i think i'm going to cancel my appt and see how it goes...

    ok, enough of my novel...well one more thing. i dated my hs bf for almost 6 years. time that was waaasted. ah, the things you do for love when you're young!

  8. uh i didn't even answer the question...DO it! do it! i love SJP's color and it'll look great on you!

  9. I say go for it! Why not?! I love those pictures (and I totally know what you're talking about with that SATC episode!).

  10. i love the look! i've been dying to try it, but need to wait until after my wedding. i love both looks, but i'd start with sjp's bc it's more subtle and then if you like it you can add more your next appt

  11. Hahaha, love that you celebrate your dating anniversary! I have ours bookmarked too- in fact, I often remember it easier than our actual anniversary (which was a random day we picked while in Hawaii)- shh, don't tell!

    I'm all for lightening up for spring/summer, so I say go for it! I love SJP's color...just the right amount of highlights, but it still looks super natural. Be sure to post updates + pics after your appointment! *wiggles*

  12. Congrats on your Anni and I say do it w/the hair. I think it's wonderful for the upcoming warm weather and you would look super cute. Just don't come out with orange roots like me. Oh that's right - you're lightening your hair not putting on the same color gone awry. Sorry. I'm still a little bitter.

    xoxo,
    Carrie

  13. I love this look! Post pics to show us how it looks!

  14. T, I say do it!! I have the end of my hair lighter (the ombre look) and it is so low maintenance! I think it would look so fab on you girlie...xo

  15. Happy Anniversary! I hope you're doing something fun to celebrate! I say DO IT! I think you'd look great with this color! I always love Carrie's hair and ESPECIALLY in the Paris episodes. Her huge curls were just so pretty. The color in these pictures is amazing, it looks really natural and easy to keep up. I've had every color hair under the sun and I always go back to my natural dark brown with a few thin highlights because it's easy to keep up and grows out looking normal. Keep us posted!

  16. I think that would be gorgeous on you

  17. i'm all about taking risks with hair! i'd just make sure your stylist knows you don't want it to look like your roots grew out.

    def post pics if you go for it!

  23. I would love for my hair to be able to look like that. I use to work at a salon and the girls would do my hair like that with a curl stick.
