I did it AGAIN.

I wasn't going to do it anymore, I was content. But I blame it on the sun...and Garth because I did it AGAIN. After 24 years of never dying my hair, I got married and my new mentality was "new last name, new look." So I started with blonde highlights and that progressed to blonde hair, and then to red hair. But all this time at the pool and in the sun has changed my hair back to blonde. And I'm not gonna lie, I just don't think blonde is my color. I'm Italian and my olive complexion looks better with dark hair. So I was gonna go back to my regular hair color, but while in the hair dye aile Garth insists I try Ultimate Black. I was hesitant, but he insisted.
So here you go:
I'm not gonna lie, this is my new favorite color. I think I'll let Garth pick out my hair color from now on.

No way! I just went jet black as well but I also had red extensions put in to be a little more edgy.

I love that color on you!!!! I think it is a keeper for awhile.

It looks GREAT on you! I have 2-3 friends who did the whole blonder than blonde thing (even though they were natural brunettes)...it started as highlights and before you knew it, they had bright blonde hair all over. They have all gone back to a color similar to what you have now, and I am a HUGE fan. It looks beautiful.

Mary Virginia said...

I LOVE it! My mom has dyed her hair from a box for nearly 30 years and my dad didn't even find out until a year after they got married it looked so natural! I think Garth did picka winner for you!

Brandi said...

Your hair looks FABULOUS!!! I love it!!!!

Gwen said...

I love it!!! I get those urges for color changes too. I actually did the black color 2 years ago for Halloween (I couldn't find the right wig) and I loved it on me once the harshness faded. My hair is naturally a dark blonde so it shows through pretty fast.

However you are so brave for letting Garth pick out a color for you. He did wonderful though!!! The one and only time Brian picked out my color I ended up Kool-Aide red and had to wash it twice a day with Tide w/Bleach and then finally had to dye it dark just in time for my sister's wedding. LOL!!!

XOXO

Miss M! said...

This definitely looks nicer than the red! Way to go Garth! I do have to say though, I thought you pulled off the blonde quite nicely.

Llama said...

I love the new hair color. Im an Italian with the olive skin tone also. I have had my fair share of going back and forth with the blonde highlights, but I always feel like the dark looks better on me. I had to giggle while reading your post, because just yesterday I was complaining about how the sun had given my highlights a weird tone. Definitely, wishing for the "Garth Look" right about now!

Brown Eyed Girl said...

You look so great!! Love that color and I must say you are looking super skinny!

You'd probably look gorgeous in any hair color, love, and the dark looks GREAT, but I'll admit I prefer you as a blonde. My two cents. =)

Kerri with a K said...

Your hair looks amazing. I did the same thing awhile back... started with red, then went natural, then blonde hi-lights... then black, and I have to say that right now, I LOVE the black.

You're definitely right. The black looks amazing on you! It was a great choice, and Garth has good taste ;)

- Sarah :-) said...

Wow - it does look good! As I was reading I thought "Black? Nooo!! Don't do it!" BUt I must admit, I was pleasantly wrong. I really like it a lot!!

Wifey said...

Fabulous! Um, when is Garth going to start taking clients?

Surrounded By Boys said...

The color looks great, but where are those last 8 lbs you keep talking about? They sure don't show up in pictures, and isn't the camera supposed to add TEN pounds???

Tasha said...

Sorry I haven't been leaving comments much, but I HAVE been reading! And I LOVE the new hair and think it is the prettiest shade yet!

Maria said...

Jorden and Kristin said...

CUTE!!! i love the black! very stunning! i can't pull black off but you can! :)

Pleasant Drive said...

I've always wished my hair was black, but I've never been brave enough to dye it. It's so dark brown that many people just call it black, but I think brown to black is a big change. BIG change.

Sassy Pants said...

You look so tan with the black! Love it!

Q, La, and Gooner said...
