OMG... I DID IT!!!

Ok.. this is kinda a big deal. I have never ever ever changed my hair color. Just highlights, that's all I've ever done...

Lately, I've just been feeling so boring. Plain Jane (not that there is anything wrong with that...). We've had some huge life altering changes here in the LaPan household, so maybe I justt wanted to make a little exterior change too?

OR, maybe cause I'm 30... I'm all brave now? HA, hardly.....

I just started to feel like my blonde hair wasn't me anymore. It was faded and the roots were ugly, and well... I felt sorta washed out. Oh, not to mention the pony tails. When was the last time someone saw me without a pony tail? Even when I wasn't working out?

Well... it's probably a good clue when I went searching for a BEFORE picture and found NUTIN. Ever single picture in the last year (with the exception of Momo's ugly fat face picture of me at my surprise party where my face was still all jacked up and fat from the steroids) I was in a pony tail...

It was actually a lot of fun. My new hair gal is cute as a button. She is actually Shane's step-sister. She's very very green, but she is working with a very succesful stylist that did her mothers hair for 15 years. They both had a lot of fun changing me up, and I have to say.. they sure made it a LOT easier for me to take the plunge. They picked the colors based on botht he picture of Ashlee Simpson that I brought in, as well as my complection. It was so cute to hear how excited they were with the results... THey were even taking notes as to what else they could do the color as my natural color starts to pull thru and give it more depth. They thought I was the perfect candidate for this new bright, fun color!!!

The most surprising.... The whole process, plus all new special product was the same cost as my NORMAL cut/color with my old gal... ( I think I might be getting a family discount!)... So, the upkeep will be more, I will have to come in ever 5 weeks vs 10, but it costs have the amount for retouch! And, apparently this color is way more healthy than the blonde I was putting in it!

I promise to actually take a picture this weekend before we go out. You know, a little makeup and wearing something other than a sports bra & Nike top :-)

SOOOO - here is the FAT FACED steroid induced picture from my 30th b-day party (don't tell me you can notice that!!)

SO, here we go - 3.5 hours later (had to do a special "filler" to cover the blonde), a glass of wine.. and here I am!!!!



P.S. momo - I've been told that PINK does NOT look good with my new color. You must understand how devistated I am :-)

P.P.S. - go see my own personal new hair color dedicated COOKIE that Stronger made! I feel so special :-)
