Hair Reveal

Thank you all so much for your feedback on this post. As much as my co-workers wanted me to do the ombre look, I just was not daring enough to try it. Your comments also made me hesitant. I went in to the salon fully expecting to do dark blonde highlights and even showed my stylist hair style #3...

BUT my stylist suggested ombre without me saying I was even thinking about it. I trusted her and thought "what the heck? why not?!" It's summer so lets do something a little crazy. 

Crazy, right?! So totally not me that I love it. It is definitely something fun for summertime. 

I like it curly best. It's not AS dramatic, but still fun. It was just the change I needed. I love the way it turned out. The color is perfect. 

The downside was the appointment took 3.5 hours. I have a lot of hair!  I was starving afterwards so G and I headed to this bar close by for dinner. Everything was half off and there was live music on the patio. Perfection. Look at us crazy kids eating dinner at 10:00 on a Wednesday night. It was a lot of fun though and I'm glad we did it. The food was great, but most importantly, cheap. The service was slow though. Also? I'm old. This is a college town and I felt so old. But it was fun to be spontaneous and just live. I feel I need to do things like this more often. 

This was a big step for me. I've said for almost 2 years that when I lose the weight I'll do a crazy color on my hair. But I'm done waiting to live until I'm at my goal weight. That is not to say I won't get to my goal weight because I will. I'm not giving up. I'm just not putting life on hold until I'm there. I'm going to be happy and live my life and enjoy the journey. That was such a huge step for me. Something I hadn't let myself do until now. It's progress for me and I'm happy. I feel great and more motivated than ever to start losing. New hair, new journey! Bring it on!
