Recently, thanks to my long-time stylist, I discovered this Redken product and I am loving it. I am not really a salon product kind of girl because I find that they work worse than drug store brands and I have to leave behind my first born as payment. This one, however, lives up to the $20 per bottle cost.
Last week, Amy challenged her readers to take a photo, right out of the shower. Here's me after my hair air dried. Brace yourselves.
No makeup either proven by the glowing orb that plants itself in the middle of my forehead.
Now to get the after shot. Yesterday, Jay and I had a date night out (Thanks Candace for watching the boys) so I set up the self timer and attempted to get one without a flash. Someday I am going to conquer the manual settings, clearly based on the following, it just won't be today. Here's me after take 1,500:
My eyes, my eyes! Mental note: metal glasses and a flash creates retina burning images. Your welcome for that.
Try again. A little less glare but why oh why does the camera focus immediately when I push the button so that by the time I get posed it has focused perfectly...on the wall behind me...
And then I spontaneously combusted. Too bad I didn't get a shot of that, huh?
But really, the hair doesn't look any different from the before picture and really it's not other than I ran the curling iron through my bangs to straighten them. Not that you can tell. And the floofed the back a bit and scrunched with hair spray.
And I put on buckets of makeup. Don't I look like a hoochie mama? No? Right, you can't even tell I spent 20 min trying to get pretty for my date. I look the same. *throws all her expensive Arbonne cosmetics out the door* I'll keep the skin care line though because it must be doing something if I look the same before and after.
Which brings me to the point of this post (yes, there is a point, alleluia!). My hair is getting boring after five years of the same old same old. I have a hankering to go back to this style that I had around ten (10? when did I get old enough to say that?) years ago. Excuse the quality of the photo, it has been riding around in Jay's wallet for ten years.
I have a hair appointment booked for Thursday. What do you all think?
