Everyone knows how fickle-minded I can be when it comes to the color of my hair. I’m itching to change it again, but I figured now’s not the right time. I need to stay away from dyeing my whole head every month even if it’s so tempting. I’m in the process of both growing my hair out AND making it healthy again, so I’ll have to just keep retouching my roots for now.
My hairstylist Jimmy suggested that I should just get subtle highlights on the tips of my hair. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of highlights and super contrasting hair colors (I can’t with black hair with blonde highlights), and I am part of the minority that believes that the age of the crazy, high-contrast ombre is over.
Upon expressing my feelings, Jimmy reassured me that he will just apply a super subtle shade that may not have an obvious effect, but will make my hair color a little less flat. I’m good with that!
Highlights on the middle layers! He didn’t put any on the lower and upper layers because he knows how much I like to play it safe, lol.
While waiting, I decided to have my roots retouched too!
After washing my hair, I also went for a quick color care treatment.
Irrelevant photo but omg don’t I look like Professor Quirrell from Harry Potter lol
The final result! Still the same hair color as before but with subtle highlights at the tips.
Thanks Status Salon for always taking care of my hair!
