Red Hair

I did it! One item from my 30 Before Thirty list down, 29 to go.

Red Hair!

I had my hair dyed at a salon, but it was not without difficulty. My appointment consisted of hair dying, drying, washing, bleaching, washing, dying, drying, and finally done.

It’s a fun color though!

    You’ve inspired me! I’ve always wanted to do this and always chicken out by just adding red highlights. I have to take the plunge. By the way, you look fantastic!!

    Nicole, please tell me that you will at some time let us know where that great necklace came from. I have looked at the responses to this post over and over hoping that the answer has been revealed. I’m a bit of a nut when I see something that I feel is so simply perfect. If you tell me someone bought it for you at a street vendor in Turkey, I might cry.

    Sorry it has taken me so long to get to the comments. Thanks for all of your kind words, everybody!

    The necklace was a recent purchase from The Limited.

    Well, if that just isn’t the best response ever! Inexpensive and accessible! Thanks, Nicole.

    […] The necklace is the same one everyone went nuts over when I posted the picture of me with my new red hair, and it’s only $29! I’d add a yellow bag to finish off the outfit, along with a stack […]

    I read your blog all the time. Never left a comment though! I just read through your 30 by thirty list and we have a lot in common.

    I absolutely love the modern wing, and live right in the loop! I’m also a photographer that’s willing to teach you how to shoot in manual mode, haha :)

    Hair looks great, btw! Makes me miss my short hair.

    Hey there,

    Long time reader, first time commenter!! Red hair really suits you. I have fair skin and red hair aswell so I just thought I’d tell you that if your considering staying red for a while you should try using henna to get that gorge red color instead of chemical dyes. I recently discovered hennafor I’m not offiliated with them or anything, but theres lots of info on that site. Just thought I’d throw that out there for ya!
