hair adventures

My sister and I do not have a good track record when it comes to coloring and/or highlighting our hair.

One of the first times I dyed my hair, it came out purple instead of slightly red as I'd intended. The first time I highlighted was my senior year of college. My friend Jami did it for me, and instead of having a few blonde highlights spread throughout my brown hair, I practically became blonde! I made an emergency Walmart run the next day and found a sale on hair color--two for the price of one. So I bought two boxes of some shade of brown and dyed my hair twice. You'd think I would have learned my lesson about blonde highlights, but no, a year later I tried again . . . with the same results! This time it was Dollar General to the rescue.

My sister's hair hasn't fared much better. We highlighted it successfully several times, but when she decided to go brown . . . well, let's just say there was some green involved! We learned anything with "ash" in the name wouldn't go over well, so last time, we tried a golden brown. Her hair came out in a nice shade of orange.

Today, we decided to give it a go again. Amazingly, both our dye jobs turned out well! I had one of those dye & highlight kits, and I was a tad apprehensive about the highlighting part, but I like the way it turned out.

So, here's a glimpse of our (matching) hair.


  1. Gorgeous color! And I remember when you dyed your hair purple. I think it was that time I came to visit you. :)

  2. I love all your captions! Looks good. Is it just me or does it look similar to MY new hair color??

  3. I heard via the grape vine that it is starting to turn orange. I didn't notice anything tonight. Enjoyed what I heard tonight, but didn't get to hear all thaT i WOULD HAVE LIKED TOO.

  4. i just dyed my hair again last week... this time all by myself. Woo-hoo! went "natural" this time, and it turned out OK. I might go redder again next time. Both of yours is cute, though.
