So I have wanted red hair for a long time, but my lovely husband said I would not look good with red hair. Pssshht. I would tell him I have a very fair complexion and light green eyes so it may work with red hair, to which he tells me nope and that I don’t have the right features. Whatever.
So of course I did what every good wife does…..try to prove my husband wrong by dying my hair red! I decided to go with a light red brown hair color from Sally’s Beauty instead of pure red. (I use Ion Color Brilliance Permanent Crème….LOVE it.)
Here is the dull mousey brown hair that I so desperately wanted to get rid of. (Blech, really bad picture! Love the circles under my eyes and crap two-tone hair....how do people let me go out in public this?!)
Here is the noticeably different Auburn hair I went with. (Very red in this picture when it is straight around my face.)
Slightly different look to the color and looks a bit better styled back like this.
It is very different, and I am still getting use to it….but I have to say I am liking it. It turned out more auburn, which is what I like and really wanted then straight up red. I think what I like most is how my eyes seem to pop with this color hair. Seriously, I have no makeup on and haven’t changed a thing other than my hair color from the before and after pictures, but my eyes seem a lot brighter and more noticeable (especially in person). Love that!
I still haven’t decided if this particular color is the one I want to stay with or if I want something with more brownish or maybe lighter. I am up for suggestions. But I am happy that I will not have to wear a hat for Thanksgiving this year to hide a bad dye job!!
