The first step toward turning my hair snowy white that is. You see, if you want to go white but still want to actually keep your hair without huge clumps of it going missing then you're looking at a two-step process. Even with today's gentler processing it's just too hard on your hair (and scalp!) to try and do it all at once, so my maaahvelous stylist Christopher and I have planned our attack....
Today was the first step; lightening my hair as much as possible this time without doing significant damage to it, and a new hair style. Whilst I loved both the colour and style from the below photo, the amount of 'fiddling' it would take to maintain the style is just too much for me right now. I need something shorter that I can just wash and go if need be, but still feminine around the face and with enough left that I can fiddle with it when I'm up to doing so. So this is my colour inspiration photo...
...and this is me, with Christopher behind me, midway through my makeover... (another thing I like about Christopher: he is not thrown off stride by my tremours at all )
No, I don't like having my photo taken but decided that if I was going to blog about it and claim to be brave with my hair it behooved me to prove it with pictures...many thanks to Jess for driving me to the salon and taking photos for me! So, this is the final result for this visit; I'll be returning to the salon in a couple of weeks to finish the process.
Thus far, I'm very pleased with the results although with the next photos I'll try not to start snickering like I did with these! It's hard to see in these photos but Christopher left dainty little tendrils along my cheekbones and there's enough on top that I can spike it, etc... if I feel like it. With a bold red lip colour and deep red cowl neck sweater I feel positively scrumptious and not a day over, say, 49.
Good thing for the day: Besides the hair? Jess made a luscious chicken and mushroom cream soup...from scratch...for our supper. YUMMY!
About me: Never, ever, ever ask me for my honest opinion unless that's what you really want, because that is exactly what I'll give; as kindly as possible if it's negative, but still honest. If what you need is a hug and some sympathy then ask for it; I'll be happy to give it...but don't ask for honesty if what you want is sympathy.
