That time I went Ombré... + Side & Top Bun Tutorial

It's true! If you saw my Instagram post - I really FINALLY broke down and put some color on my hair! Sadly enough, I am so crazy over it, that I don't know that I will go back! {kidding, John!}

First off, you have to "meet" the magic maker, Kaitlyn {see below}. She's super talented and has the BEST taste! I, having never done anything this "crazy", felt totally comfortable putting my locks in to her hands! She's actually a friend of mine from college & has always been an exceptional person... with fabulous hair. 

Anyway, I've been crushing on the whole ombré look for sometime now. I keep seeing it on celebrities... specifically Emily from Pretty Little Liars. It looks so undone & effortless, which I find so attractive!

 Without further adieu...




With the talented Miss Kaitlyn after my first coloring experience! I love it!! Thanks, Kaitlyn!
If you live in the Nashville area - or even remotely close, give Kaitlyn a call at Escape Day Spa & Salon. The salon itself is remarkable. You can't help but love being in that environment, it's relaxing, yet fun! Everyone is exceptionally kind & the stylists themselves will no doubt make you leave looking like a million bucks!

And for those of you who asked for a tutorial on how I did my hair in these two photos...


Here you are....


**when twisting your front pieces... you must do it a LOT tighter than I did in the video... I was exhausted!**
and holy cow - why did I mention the whole court thing? those of you who are new - please know that I simply went to court because I came into our place the wrong way the first night we moved here and I was found NOT guilty! :)

I'm in PA school right now, and I'm not married, but the other day I thought it was probably a good thing, because I'm never home! Anyway, cute blog. Looking forward to following more.
