Salon Monica

So recently I've been experimenting and tampering with Juvy's hair.  I'm really surprised at how much she trusts me to do all these things to her hair! That's true friendship right there.  I'm just so glad the outcome was good and we received a lot of positive feedbacks.  Here are some pictures to share the makeover process:

The cut.
When it comes to cutting, I'm more used to trimming rather than chopping off hair.  I've been trimming my hair (esp bangs) since as long as I can remember because I'm cheap when it comes to haircuts.  But this time, Juvy wanted to go from medium hair length to short so I was nervous!  Thus, the whole process took 2 hours to complete LOL

And the outcome . . .



Instant new face.  I can't believe how hair can change your appearance.  I think she matches more with side swept bangs because it give a more matured-look.

The dye.
More like "the bleach".  The first time that both Juvy and I worked with bleach and thanks to Janis, we were able to buy the right products and mix the right amount of bleach powder with developer.  I think the only concerns that people have with bleach is if they have enough solution and where and when to apply it.  The only advice I can give is to stay clear from the roots and start applying from the back of the head and doing the top portion last since that's the warmest part of your head supposedly.  As for having suffice amount of solution, either buy more than you need or concentrate of evening out a little amount at a time.  

So, we let it sit in and watched as her hair turned from light brown to yellow.  We then washed it out and applied toner to her hair to basically "tone" down the hair color to make it look more natural and voila!

 A whole different person!

Want to thank my baby Juvy for giving me this great experience to completely change her hair style from start to finish. She's been styling it in different ways and I'm totally in love with her new style. :)
