It's all about me, Wednesday!

AAAHHHHH!!!! Attack of the killer highlights!!!!!!

I wanted to post some pictures of my 'do for my bloggie pal Vanessa (who rambles and rants with the best of 'em). She got a fab new cut that looks AWE.SOME on her and I think she just needs a few streaks for pizazz.
This is pre flat iron and pre spray wax. This is a straight after the blow dryer shot.

(I haven't done my makeup yet in this pic, so that's why I'm hiding the mug - plus I wanted to show off my Christmas present to myself...my FAB.U.LOUS Nikon)

This one is after a little flat ironing in the front (to tame the crazy curl that started to take shape on the right side. This is also after I used my favorite styling wax in the world.

(Are ya diggin' the dark nail polish? It's called Midnight in Moscow from OPI. It's not black, no matter what Shooter says. It's a really, really, really dark red. I kinda like it.)

Granted...these photos were taken inside in my bathroom so the lighting isn't the greatest. Perhaps I can supplement these with some taken outside.
This is also my new fave styling product. I use a root lifter and a volumizing mousse and once my hair is dry I spray a light mist of this over my hair and then separate pieces out with my fingers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! I mostly love it because it's not heavy like some pomades or styling waxes can be.
Now, go forth and highlight, lift your roots and use that wax with pride!

I wish I had the complexion for red hair...I can mostly do, light black, dark brown, chestnut if I want to get fancy...

and my husband rolls his eyes at me too when I speak of blogging..sheesh, he so doesn't understand

Ok, Where Was I? said...

If it weren't 2 outside, I might run out right now and get this root lifting ability. It's so what I need.

I was introduced to Big Sexy Hair this weekend and I love it.

I L-O-V-E your highlights! Sadly, something like that would not do ME any justice. I think my hair-style would end up looking like a deformed candy cane.

Hahahah.. I love that shot of you and your camera!

Your highlighs look better than GRAY! Actually, they look GREAT! I would be very happy with those results.

I have been every hair color under the sun except for really CRAZY colors such as purple or pink.. but I am not opposed to them either!

I've got an appointment... and who knows what will come out of that!

I love red hair! I love being pale enough to have it! And I love how you look even before the flat iron! How adorable you are! Of course, you look great after the hair works, too!

I'm making a note about the root lifter right now!

HOW FUNNY! I just got back from getting my hair colored! I'll post pics soon. I love you hair! Such sexy hair you have! And the nail polish is great. The camera? to die for! OMG, a tad envious there! Ok, clearly I am rambling and excessively using exclamation points! I'll stop now...

I love your hair! I so want to be a red head! I've had some red in my hair before but nothing as fabulous as yours!!!!

I love this root lifter from Tigi from their Catwalk line. It's a tall skinny blue metallic can. I also use Tres Semme root lifter when I can't get the Catwalk stuff. My hair is pretty heavy so I definitely benefit from the root lifter.

I do adore the red streaks. I went to a base brown without any red and really like the pop that the streaks give me. I would highly suggest it to everyone! ;-)
