What is it about highlighting that’s so durn addictive? It starts as a few innocent foils “for dimension,” and before you know it, you’re blonde.

My stylist is the best enabler. It started last season, with some subtle highlights to try and hide the lovely flat shade of orangey-red I acquired from a home hair color fail. Then two weeks ago, when I went in for a trim, we filled my head with foils, banishing the last of the brass. Two days later, she texted me and said, “I’ve been thinking about your hair all weekend. I want you to come back in to paint on just a few more highlights, if that’s cool with you.”

And I was all, “let’s do it!” Because I figure if a little blonde is a good, a lot of blonde is better…

It’s a slippery slope, the hair highlighting.

So Saturday afternoon, she put in a few more foils, and then balayaged — my spellcheck really doesn’t want to let that word happen, but it’s happening — lighter pieces all throughout. We left my roots natural for easy maintenance, and decided we’re probably done.

For now.

    I think blonde would suit you. I have seriously been considering going blonde myself.

  • CrifJohnson 11/22/2013 at 2:13 am

    You look really pretty! Nice pair of shades!

  • Whitney 11/21/2013 at 7:24 pm

    I do the opposite! I started with a just a few low lights and now i’m basically black. I think it’s the change – we crave the difference in the mirror since so many of us have the same hair style day after day.

    I recently put the popular “wine” color underneath my darker brunette hair. I’m already ready to go back and dye my whole head because of it! Hair color gets a little addicting!

  • rachelle 11/05/2013 at 5:22 pm

    I love highlights but they are so high maintenance that I’ve moved on to ombre.

  • Sara 11/05/2013 at 5:14 pm

    I like it! I don’t think it looks “blonde” at all. But that’s just me. :)

    • keiralennox 11/05/2013 at 5:42 pm

      Definitely not blonde yet! That’s a little more maintenance than I have time for these days. But it always seems to go extreme with highlighting, before you know it you’re platinum ;)

      • Sara 11/05/2013 at 5:44 pm

        I could how that would happen. I’ve never dyed my hair—too cheap! But I have curly hair and it seems to “make” highlights due to the curve of the curl and catches light, so I guess I have natural highlights?

        • keiralennox 11/05/2013 at 5:59 pm

          Lucky girl! Those are the best kind!

          When I was in the salon, there was a little girl with blonde curly hair that had the most gorgeous natural highlights. I pointed her out to my stylist and said, “she doesn’t know how good she has it!”

    • joannapop 11/14/2013 at 10:33 pm

      It looks great! I recently went completely dark..the opposite as us Canadians usually darken our hair in the winter!

  • BeingZhenya 11/05/2013 at 5:06 pm

    Oh I can’t wait to get my hair highlighted again! It’s been long overdue!
    Love yours!
