The last time I ever put any kind of color in my hair was my sophomore or junior year.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  It was this hideous yellow, blonde, and really it wasn’t even my hair that was dyed.  I think my best friend actually installed weave into my head that color.  Either way It was hideous.  I found out a while later that my mom hated it, but because I was her daughter, and she loved me, she didn’t want to hurt my feelings.  Really mom? Really?! Thanks! SMH

So, basically, my history with coloring my hair, experimenting, hasn’t been a great one, but I’m grown now and I wanted a change.  My mom wanted me to go blonde, the right color blonde, lighten my hair with highlights at least, but I was really feeling all of these red/purple/burgundy hues I had been seeing lately.  I thought, if I’m going to do this, I’m going to make sure that  make a statement, in a good way.  So, I went the bright burgundy/red wine woute, and I am already obsessed with my new Summer look!

My hair stylist Natasha White of Two Sha’ Beauty Bar, here in Dallas, TX, she did an amazing job.  She’s the only person I trusted to transform me.  She dyed 5 bundles of my already used hair and installed them all into my head.  I love big, full hair.  It’s the only way I go.  I left my crown area out, so she dyed that as well and it all just came together so well.  I don’t regret my choice or color not one bit.

I’ve gotten so many compliments, my brother is still getting used to it, my mom and dad like it and my friends love it.  My thing is, if you’re going to dye your hair, or make a change of some sort to your image, don’t be scared, just do it.  I recommend doing research of course beforehand so you do know what route to go, but change is good.  Don’t be scared.  You never know if you’ll like it or not, unless you just take a step out on faith and…DO IT!
