Okay...so I really should have posted these pics about a month ago, but I didn't. At this point, I don't remember exactly why!! But...the following is an excerpt from the hair saga that was mine...
So, the drama began after a trip to the FW Botanic Gardens where Leigh snapped a couple of pictures of me and Wes. This one in particular showed my head from the back. Now, I knew I was long overdue for my hair appointment (I had cancelled three different times...I last had my hair colored in December!) and I joked about having 6 inch roots, but I had never actually seen it in the sunlight! WHITE TRASH ROOTS BABY!
After the sheer horror from seeing that picture subsided, I sent an innocent text to my good friend Jenny..."should I just buy a bottle from Walmart and fix my roots myself?"
Her reply..."absolutely! and I can even do highlights!"
So, we set the date, I bought the bottle, and gave Jenny a call. The conversation went something like this...
Me: Hey, are you still coming over to do my hair?
Jen: Uummmmm...are you really gonna do a bottle job?
Me: You're the one who said (and I quote) absolutely! Remember, you could even do highlights!
Jen: Yea...I so can. I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing but I'm sure we can make it happen! You go ahead and put the base color on and I'll be there in a little bit.
Meanwhile...Deneise stops by! And I volunteer her to put the base color on for me!
The rest of the story is captured quite vividly in the following pictures...
Here's the lesson:
Texting is a VERY LIMITED form of communication. What I heard was an enthusiastic, confident, "ABSOLUTELY! I can even do highlights!"
What she said was an extremely sarcastic, don't you dare do a bottle job, "absolutely! I can even do highlights!"
Needless to say, we had some really great laughs that night. I sat totally at the mercy of two amateur cosmetologist who OBVIOUSLY had everything under control!! And, I remember why I was waiting to do this post! I wanted an after picture! Too bad. No after picture. Wouldn't this have been a much better post with an after picture though?
