Oh hello there! How has everyone been faring for the past couple of weeks?
I’ve been quite busy the past few weeks with assessments, work and …life ;^; ! But yes, there’s been so much happening in my life lately; one huge thing in particular that many of you would already know would be that I dyed my hair a red-purple about a month ago. I went to a Korean salon advised by THIS guy (
WHY WOULD I TRUST A WHITE MAN?!)
So yes, the above photo is the wonderful result of our FOUR HOURS in the salon (mainly mine though seriously)
We both underestimated how long we’d actually be in there …or really, how long my hair would take. So, for reference sake, I’ve included our not so wonderful pre-magical hair transformation photo below! (I really needed a hair cut)
Ash also decided to get his hair dyed because well, WHY NOT? And he had never done it before.
Anyway, at this point, we explained what we both wanted to our amazing hair dresser.
Whilst Ashley’s intended hair was going to be super easy to do (stupid white man and his ability to not need bleach) and wouldn’t cost that much ….I wasn’t that lucky. What I wanted would take at least 3 bleaching attempts, numerous hours and ..would total up to $490. I freaked out obviously. Thankfully, we managed to cut it down to $390 after agreeing on only 2 bleaches and cutting out some things. This was still expensive but I felt the need to splurge?? ;^;
Oh I should mention that I had NEVER bleached my hair before so …that was definitely an experience!!
Below are the progression shots of my hair over FOUR hours (Idek how Ash managed to stay sane for that long)
Here goes the first bleaching attempt ..and some strange looking contraption ..that ..serves …a purpose I don’t know.
I’m fairly sure this is after ..the second bleach? I’m not too sure but ..omgahhh so orange! I was so excited when they finally started putting the colour in my hair by the way. IT TOOK HOURS TO GET TO THIS POINT and I was progressively getting frustrated at having to get my hair washed constantly haha (Ash woulda been done by this point)
If you can see in the first photo above, Ashley is having fun waiting for me ….whilst playing on his slowly dying phone hahahahaha. But yesss, waiting for that many hours was a feat even for me ..so kudos to him!! ♥ But I was so excited when they finally started styling my hair!! After those many treacherous hours of sitting ..waiting ..getting my hair washed ..and then having my head put in to strange looking machines … I was finally doneee! ヽ(･∀･)ﾉ
But yes omgah, I was so happy with how my hair turned out (
and yes, Ashley’s too) !!! ♥
SO HAPPY, that I included another photo of us ..although with Ash looking away bwahahah. But seriously, look at dem curls. I have yet to be able to recreate this look … but ..at least I have forever captured this moment on camera!
Since the whole hair dying experience was a first for both of us a in away, we decided to celebrate by going to a bar and getting a drink (which by the way was a first for me too – since I don’t usually drink alcohol)
But I actually had a really good day with Ash, despite staying at the salon for four freaking hours!
Oh, and I bet you’re all wondering how our hairs have turned out a month later… and well, the purple in my hair … WASN’T THE BEST CHOICE. It pretty much faded within a week! I struggled with maintaing the red in my hair, so using a red dye shampoo removed the purple quicker. Ashley, obviously HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH HIS HAIR (damn his genes). His now looks like a nice auburn colour ..while mine is continuously trying to turn orange >:|
Lesson: Ombre is hard to freaking maintain ..and splurging $390 on your hair is a bit insane.
