I walked into my 4:00 hair appointment yesterday without any game plan for my hair. My hair guy Mark looked up at me and asked "the usual?" I said "Probably. I eventually want to do something different, but I'm too chicken today." I guess that was all the prompting he needed and before I knew it, they were mixing up some concoction and applying it to my unsuspecting head. I've been going to Mark for a few years now, and it was like he couldn't wait to do this to me. When they rinsed me out and spun me around to the mirror, there is only one word to describe my reaction.


It was very hard getting an accurate picture. In some lighting I like it, but in other lighting I'm ready to run out the door to get some highlights/lowlights, ASAP.

Here is a picture taken in completely different lighting. It's much darker in real life, but it may eventually fade to this. Who knows. Sorry Jess, I did my best to take some accurate pictures!

At dinner last night Finn said that my new hair color was brown and that his hair color was tan. When I told him that I was not too sure about my new color, he suggested that I go back to Mark and get my hair painted tan like his. Hm. Maybe if I'm tired of being a raven after a month, I might just go back and request some tan hair:)


  1. Wow! I love it! It compliments your big brown eyes so well! I'm sure it's a big change for you but it honestly looks fabulous! Love it!

  2. I totally agree with Jenny, it really does compliment your eyes. I love it too!!!

  3. LOVE IT!!!!!! It's FABULOUS!!!!
    He did such a good job, and I love the cut too. I really, really love it!

  4. I love it too! Keep the color for a while. I'm sure that you'll get used to it.

  5. Seriously D! It looks lovely! So healthy! I say hang onto it!

  6. Davi it looks lovely! I think it looks healthy and elegant.

    I am the queen on getting shocking hair. Last year while my hair dresser was on maternity leave, I went to a different girl and got black and RED (like blood red) I looked like I came out of Hot Topic. When I mentioned to her that it was too extreme, she told me it would fade. It did like 2 months later. 2 months too late.

  7. Love it! Never go back! Highlights are so yesterday! Ok, so maybe only for me who can't afford them-but I am a huge fan of your new do!

  8. YOU ARE SO STUNNING! That color is BEAUTIFUL on you!!!

    I am, of course, biased towards dark haired beauties... but seriously, it is just gorgeous!

  9. thanks for the kind opinions! I will try to persevere as a raven. When I caught my reflection at Sephoras last night, my complexion looked ghastly though.I see quite a few brunettes came out of the woodworks on this one! Any of you have any tips on how to get some color to my face?

    also, since there were no bleachy highlights to damage my roots,I have no more volume on my roots so I had to buy root lifter. My oh my this is hard work!
