Back to Black

Hi everyone!

I hope your Tuesday has been wonderful and get your butt off the couch! Today was a life changing day as I walk around now in my new hair, back to Black!

I originally dyed it in 8th grade and continually kept up with it throughout high school but leaving for college, taking care of it just wasn’t in the picture for me. UGH SO WRONG!

So bottom line, it’s been two years! My amazing stylist hooked me up with Redken Demi Permanent in Onyx Black & Espresso Brown to find a happy medium between the two.

I also trimmed the ends and got that nice, sharp V in the back so I regained that structure for some hair flipping lol.

Gosh, I literally forgot how rewarding and satisfying it feels to pamper yourself this way. I feel rejuvenated? Definitely not going to forget this feeling, self care is such a huge discipline I need to get into!

I also had an interview at a retail store followed by some business emails and preparations for my cell bio class. In the midst of my busy schedule, changing up my hair even if just a little bit really did vamp me up! I feel lighter and like a fresh new Pauly walked right in. 🙂

So for YOU reading this, get that color or cut you’ve been dying for! lol get it?

Enjoy your week xo

Balayage: actually french for ‘to sweep’. A digression of color from dark to light in natural strokes from ear proximity to ends.

Undercut: A buzz-cut appearance usually on the lower half of the head. Many artists offer designs to the undercut like the one pictured below styled by Miss Mandi!
