Dark Horse

I'll give you three guesses, and the first two don't count...what's different about me. I'm not totally happy with the new hurr color, and I don't mind telling ya. I took a photo in of what I wanted, and this, folks, ain't it.


It's not that this is bad, and in fact, I've been this color before, but when I'm paying $100+ for something, I want what I want. This was more like what I showed my hairdresser:


Not quite what I got, huh? So now, after several months of not feeling totally satisfied with my stylist, I'm in the position of breaking up with her. Have you ever broken up with your hurr-dresser? I'm HOPING to get a consultation with my cousin's stylist, though I read on her website that she is not accepting new clients. Eeek.


Maybe she'll take pity and at least sit down with me for a consultation. I feel almost like I'm going to a job interview or an audition. Trying to find a new stylist is NOT my favorite thing. I will be the first to admit I'm picky about my hair, and I'm willing to pay more for it, but if I don't feel like I'm getting the value for that money, I'll take it elsewhere.


Soooo, any tips for a sistah going in to beg someone completely new to fix their hurr? I'm all ears...

First off you look gorgeous just the same. I do like the inspiration photot and in fact wanted some golden brown/caramel highlights in the front similar to that. I've definitely broken up with a hairdresser or two. Hair is serious business to a woman! lol. You are paying for a service and any salon dresser worth their weight should have the skills and capabilities to deliver.

When you get a sec, please check out my new blog and follow me! Have a lovely day!

I love the ladies at Speak Salon in the Crossroads District! Tara has been coloring/cutting my hair for sometime, thanks to Jessie at Style & Pepper. I quizzed Tara about HOW to cut and layer curly hair, and to color grays so it last longer than the first few washes. Good luck finding someone!

sometimes your stylist gets too comfortable and wont try anything new. i've been wanting a short bob again, but my stylist won't cut it!! i've had to move on a few times...it's ok!!
