Mom and I played beauty salon again. I love it. Mom loves to be blonde, really blonde, but unfortunately she has really dark roots that can look tacky real fast when they are grown out. So to minimize tacky root grow out, she was willing to go closer to her natural cover with more subtle highlights. Dad actually encouraged it. He came across a picture of when they were first married and noticed that her hair was more honey golden then the bright blonde she’d been doing. I did an all-over color to cover the grey and balance out the roots to the rest of the hair. Then I went back in with a mix of chunky and natural weave highlight color one shade lighter. After I touched up her cut I had done last time. It’s a round layer with bangs cut that creates body and volume with layers throughout, but she can keep some length without heaviness at the bottom.
I’ve been watching at-home tutorials and studying different resources as a sort of “self taught” hair-stylist course.
Thanks mom for encouraging me, trusting me and being patient….and for the generous tip :)
