I recently decided I was no longer paying a fortune to get my hair highlighted and I was at the point where my roots were getting nasty. I’m pretty much a dark blond so I figured an overall color would whip me back into shape pretty easily. I mean come on, how hard can be right? So I headed to the grocery to buy a box kit. I stood in the aisle for a long time picking out the prettiest model and trying to match my hair to the color on the printed picture of the box. The shirt on model B24 (or something like that) was totally cuter so in the end the deciding factor was based on “If I find a shirt just like that I will look totally just like her!” (you know – if I grow 6 inches and lose 25 pounds.) I headed to the checkout, box in hand, ready to become the new me for $9.99.
Roughly an hour later I was blow drying my now orange hair wondering where exactly I had gone wrong. I called Natalie to tell her about my little dilemma and all she said was “didn’t you already do this once in college?”. Umm, well, yes, maybe… was all I could stammer out. Lesson learned. Again.
I promptly made an appointment with my wonderful stylist and she was very nice and tried not to giggle as I repeated my woeful tale. Okay, I lied, I bought another box kit and tried to get the orange out and some how it turned out worse… Natalie don’t say a word…
Then I called my wonderful stylist and she fixed me right up! Back to my normal shade of “natural” blond.
So people, please learn from me and just pay the price. It is so worth it!
In honor of my stupidity I decided to make blondies! For those of you that don’t know what a blondie is it’s a brownie without the chocolate. The blueberry icing is truly yummy and a great compliment to the blondies!
