BACK TO BLACK | Hair Update

Back to black. I mean blue black this time. I seriously got bored sporting blonde, bronde, caramel blonde hair, etc. for the last ten years I believe. So yes, this is the darkest I went. Or shall we say, welcome moi to the dark side, haha!

Before and After

Why blue black you ask? To me it represents youth (something a 41 year old lady yearns). I also trimmed 3 inches off and had soft layers on the side. My hairstylist could’ve nailed it if she didn’t cut my bangs disappointingly shorter than what I wanted. So while I grow ’em out, I have been experimenting ways to tame le bangs. Overall, I liked how my hair feels lighter, shinier, and more youthful…

Let’s see how I feel come spring or summertime. Maybe I’d stick with darker shades, explore colored tips or go back to blonde again. Women and their first-world issues, ugh!

    OOOO I like. I have been thinking of changing my hair color.

    Lady, you can pull off all those hair colours like no one's business! I keep wanting to go properly jet black (my natural colour is a mousy black) but am too chicken lol.

      Thanks much. I'm happy with this new hair color coz even patients recognized the change and liked it 🙂

    This is a very flattering look on you, Kath! And I know how annoying it can be when your hairstylist cuts those bangs too short, that's one reason why I grew them out.

      Thanks much. Yeah, why can't they make it right the first cut? Now I'm hiding it until it's long enough to show

    Wow, what a big change! Usually I think it's a big change when people go lighter but clearly darker is a major shift too. Love the deep look!

      Thank you. I'm happy and quite surprised that even our patients recognized the change 🙂

    WOW!!!! You look absolutely stunning with black hair! It is so rich and beautiful!

    I've been on the fence about going back black b/c it makes me look super light. Black looks great with your complexion.

      Thanks much! I thought about going dark many times, finally I didn't it. 🙂

    Looks great!Your hair is gorgeous!

    Love the change! My stylists ALWAYS cut my bangs too short, I rely on bobbi pins during that awkward phase before they're long enough for side swept styles.

    • December 11, 2015 / 2:24 am

      Yeah, why do they always do that? Can't wait for my bangs to grow out

    I remember my sr year in HS and into my sophomore yr of college was into blue black hair. Dark hair suits you.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE blue-black hair! It's sexy

  11. December 11, 2015 / 2:00 am

    I think blue-black hair is gorgeous!

  12. December 11, 2015 / 3:58 am

    I love how you look in such dark hair. It will seem like you have all new cosmetics now with your new look.

  13. December 11, 2015 / 2:30 pm

    Lookin SULTRY! I went back to my "roots" recently and omg the grey comes in so much faster when hair is dark… well more noticeable LMAO I'm going back to blonde-ish in a week. The change is nice, though. For years I've been trying to get the balls to go red!

  14. December 11, 2015 / 2:35 pm

    Wow! Your hair looks awesome!

  15. December 11, 2015 / 9:11 pm

    I love the blue-black on you! Black hair is definitely sexy, but not for everyone, but you certainly pull it off well.

    Very dark and mysterious! I have a bottle of temporary color in a blue-black, and I've been thinking of trying it! You may have inspired me!
