New Icy Blonde Hair Cut and Color

I am so excited to share this post with you all! My hair was in NEED of help - it was scary! So I finally bit the bullet and went to my hair stylist, Laura (she's amazing!) to make a change (which I talked about here).

I've been wanting to go icy blonde / silver blonde / platinum blonde / whatever-you-want-to-call-it-blonde for a few months now. I was going back and forth about it, a little afraid. Finally I decided,  "What the Hell?!?" It's just hair and I want something new and fun. I made the appointment and got my Pinterest full of inspiration pics for Laura.

However, I wimped out the day of and decided instead of going full blown blonde, I'd ombre-ease my way into it. So we took the plunge, see below for the huge difference it made!

Let me say, before my cut, this was the longest my hair had been in years. Possibly since I was a child. So I was enjoying it, but I was sick of it. Here was my long ass hair before:

See how ratty it was? And let's not even talk about the color. Nope! Moving on... But as you can see it wasn't super unhealthy or anything just needed a refresh!

And POW! I got one.

I haven't been this blonde since high school. And I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't do this sooner. Oh well, I'm here now. And I'm glad I decided to ease into the super blonde look, because although I love it, it might have been a huge shock to go full blown.

But as you can tell I'm extremely happy with how the color turned out. Laura was amazing as usual! If you're in the Denver Metro area, I suggest looking her up at Truly You Salon you will thank me! Now the next time I go I think I'll be ready for full on blonde... I think :)

Have a great day all!
