Girly Necessities

About a week ago I joined my two wonderful friends for a hair cutting/coloring margarita party. Lol! A first for me. Actually my girlfriend Susan has her hair done by her girlfriend and I thought I'd try her out since she loves coloring hair. We had so much fun and I cannot believe I'm going to show you some of these pictures but oh well. We're all close enough to share the silly, embarrassing photos too, right? By the way, I am loving my new color. It's an espresso dark brown mixed with a deep, deep, reddish purple.

Here are my embarrassing photos...

Some yummy fruity margaritas but no margaritas for the hair stylist until after she's done with all of us!

Susan and Nancy sure love their drinks. Lol!

Then Nancy had to fall in the hammock in uncontrollable laughter. Thank God this was a sleepover. ;)

And here's my color...

You can see some of the highlights here...

And here...
And here's my little sweet red head.

And I'm happy to report I "washed those grays right out of my hair!". :)

How fun! I love the new color!!!

Now that sounds like a fun night in!! What a great idea...and also a really good idea for the hairdresser to NOT have a drink or two! I LOVE the hair color so much. I am having mine done in 2 days. I get an overall color of my "natural" brown color to cover the gray, then a burgundy over that, then some light blondish highlights. I know it sounds funny but it really looks great. You have some great friends!!

dawn said...

I "likee" your new hair color, and your nail polish is great too. What color is it? You all look like you had lots of fun. I'll drive over next time. Ha ha. Come over and see Bentley in his Mardi Gras beads. He looks thrilled don't you think?

Love,
Susan and Bentley

mangocheeks said...

Your hair looks lovely. I recently had a drastic hair cut. From long hair to cropped short hair, I don't ever remember ever having the back of my neck exposed!

Now you make me want to give it a little colour too, yeah for the greys really. Thank you for sharing and making me smile.

Rue said...

Love, love, love the colour! Too much fun!

I went to a party like this once. Unfortunately the hairdresser did have a bit too much to drink. Interesting cuts that night!

pheonix_Dawn said...

Cool look for you...I really like it!

Mom says she didn't do something as nice and girly in a far too long time. It looks like you had lots of fun! Hi Quincy, we love your hairdo too.

Joy said...

Your hair looks great, Michelle. I need to do my hair coloring at home, it's getting pretty expensive at the salon. (Handyman said he would NOT do it, though!)
