The week I never want to remember...

For the past 5 years I've been going to my good friend Alida to have my hair done. Then all of a sudden she decides she wants to retire at the ripe old age of 25, and do something bigger and better. {How inconsiderate right?}

I needed to go get my hair done. And. So I booked an appt with a salon downtown. A salon I`ve never been to. With a stylist I`ve never heard of.. for me this is absolutely unheard of. I love my hair.

Actually. Love is an understatement.

I`ve put together a collage of this weeks happenings. This has lead to a few breakdowns..3 actually. lots of tears each time. 6 hours in the hair chair..and more coming up.

Top Left:What my hair looked like Monday.
Top Right: What I wanted my hair to look like Monday
Bottom Left: What I left with my hair looking like. For real. Gross. Someone should be shot.
Bottom Right: What my hair looked like when I left Thursday night after I asked them to fix it..also showing them the Top Right picture AGAIN.

Maybe the third time is the charm. Let`s hope so. Cause my poor little hair can`t really take much more of this. I need to wait a few weeks before I can go try for the top right picture this time. I need to get it done before I leave for Utah in 3 and half week. But. as you can imagine.!

So if any of you in Calgary (or) Utah know of anyone who is legit good with blondes. Let me know because I am in the market for a colorist. Let me know.

Last night. While driving with the Bestie. Who. Also got her hair done on Monday with me... reminded me that a horrible hair experience. or. any horrible experience really always makes a for a good blog post.

Hope you all enjoyed it.

Seriously... GROSS! What the freak was that stylist thinking letting you walk out of the salon like that? I am SO sorry, girl! Be sure to give yourself a good deep conditioning treatment before you get your hair colored again. Maybe do 1 this week and then a day or two before you get it done again. Just don't do it too often because it can soften the hair and make it easier to break. But if you're going to try blonde again you definitely need a treatment!

Are you going to northern Utah?

So sad. I couldnt look in the mirror for 3 days. And. It was horrible. It still kind of is. I am going to be in between Logan and Provo from march 20- April 3rd ish... Maybe headed to Vegas we'll hafta see. I'm so sad. Lets hope round 3 works better. I don't know how long I can wait before I fix this mess :(
