Hair is a big part of style just like your wardrobe. I've honestly been bored with my hair. Either curly or straight hair, it's the same long hair. I've been wanting a new do forever. Something new, something different. It's always fun to have a new look. Today I'd like to share how I changed my hair for those of you who are considering a change for summer as well :)
After consulting and working with Elisha Jimenez from Ted Gibson New York, we decided to do two color sessions. The first session to bring my color to blonde and the second session to add some low lights to give it a contrast. My hair naturally is really dark and it definitely wasn't easy to make my hair light colored. This is the lightest shade I've ever had in my life. The first session took us four hours to do one thread color, whole head highlights and then a gloss process. A few days later, I met with Elisha again and she added low lights that are a few shades lighter than my blonde hair. This is the final look for you guys to see. I love the contrasting threads in my hair, they reflect different shades in different lighting situations. To maintain the same color, you need to touch up the roots every two months. I expressed my concern to Elisha, because I probably won't have that much time to color my hair every two months, which is one of the reasons that I haven't colored my hair for such a long time. The solution she provided was to brush on the roots and give them a darker color. So when my new hair grows out, it has a transition section and won't feel too obvious with a border line. Elisha is such a sweet heart. She is professional, talented and patient. If you guys are looking for a color change, I would enthusiastically recommend her. The first and the last photos are how I look now! The photos in between are the step by step transitions. Can you believe how light my hair was in the third picture? After my second hair session, I had a hair cut with Chris Carney from Ted Gibson. He recommended this volume look at the bottom of my hair with very few layers. My hair is one to two inches shorter and healthier now. Both visits to Ted Gibson were very enjoyable processes. Every time I was greeted by different staff members, offered and given different types of beverages and also was given a complimentary hand massage each visit.
If you guys are looking for a change to your hair this summer, I definitely recommend a visit to Ted Gibson if you are in New York City or planning to visit. You won't be disappointed. What do you think of my new hair? :) XO
