Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like.

I love this quote and it's so absolutely true. My hair means so much to me. I know some may not understand and find me completely weird for saying this but I feel so much prettier when it's freshly done.
Women: don't try to understand us, you never will :)
Anyway, I have received a few requests about my hair. Where I get it done, what color do I do, how do I cut it, etc. Therefore I decided to take a few pics of my hair before treatment, during treatment and after. I also asked my hairdresser a few questions:

  1. My base color, which I leave natural, is a medium brown level 6.
  2. She then gives me highlights with mild bleach. I alternate with my highlights. This time I highlighted my whole head and in 3 months I will only highlight half my head (top and bottom so that you can see highlightes when I tie up my hair). And so forth.
  3. After about 15-20 minutes, she rinses out the bleach with just water, no shampoo.
  4. While my hair is still wet from rinsing out and I'm still sitting at the sink, she then applies a color all over my head making sure she touches all my bleached highlights. The color is a golden/ash blonde level 7-8. She makes her own mix as golden and ash are two different colors.
  5. This color stays on my hair for about 10 minutes if not less.
  6. She then washes it out with shampoo & conditioner. And you're now ready for the haircut.
  7. She based my haircut on a picture I gave her of Taylor Momsen. I love the thick side swept bangs.

And there you have it. Lena's hair in detail. Hope you all like it, I know I do!

Sorry for the blurry pics. I didn't want to bring my good camera to the salon.
This is my before picture.
Starting my highlights.
My highlights are complete and I'm off to the sink to rinse. I did not take pictures at the sink..I was too busy enjoying the massage :)
End result and better
