Show and Tell: New Hair

Note: Pregnancy Mentioned (Briefly)

So to celebrate my entry into the "supposedly" glorious second trimester, I decided I really needed to do something to me feel better. The nausea is still around but definitely not as bad. It comes and goes. However, I still need the diclectin. Not planning to try and wean off it again anytime soon.

So, Saturday I went to see my favourite hair stylist, K. She is proabably the best stylist I've ever been to in my life. Srriously! She actually understands and knows how to deal with my fine but thick hair. I trust her to do whatever. In fact I've been known to give her free reign since she understands that it always has to be appropriate for working in a Corporate Office.

I told her I wanted to go red like I have before. We always do demi-permanent dye, so we're not chemically dyeing my hair. It's like a super conditoner with colour! But you can't go light with demi-perm. It actually mixes with your own colour, so adding red to my brown hair creates a rich auburn. So awesome!

Here is the result of mixing two reds: mahogany and copper into my own hair. Also note the fantastic cut she did. I'm growing it out a little and it really needed some style cut into it.

There's nothing better like fantastic new hair to make you feel sexy and beautiful...



Oh, and to those of you who are disappointed because I didn't post a Cooking for the Soul post, I promise, when I have a weekend with some time to do some creative cooking, I will indulge people's need for some "food po.rn".

And be sure to pop over to Mel's to see what the rest of the class is showing...
