Going Red

I’ve always wanted to be a red head. I think it all started with Anne of Green Gables… I wanted her hair.

It looks like I wasn’t the only one, in an interview with ‘Lucky’, Christina Hendricks told them “I was obsessed with Anne of Green Gables, so I wanted red hair.”

I kinda want to be Christina Hendricks too ;-)

Anywhoodle, this week I decided if I wanted red hair so badly, I should just get red hair… and I did.

Here I am right after my hair cut on Tuesday…

And, here I am right after I dyed my hair red on Thursday…

After
I LOVE IT! I feel extra sassy and fun :)

Do you dye your hair? Do you have any tips to maintain the brilliance?

GORGEOUS! I love it! I died my hair auburn once over ten years ago, and now it's impossible to get out. Apparently I had "red tones" in my hair naturally and that brought it out. Now they can never get it to it's normal dark brown without getting a red tone. Grrr!
I find the John Freida line extremely helpful for maintaining color- they have a blonde, brunette and redhead line. Try that- I LOVE it!

You're so adorable! I love the color :) I've also always wanted to go red, but my hair is SO dark that i'm worried about how it'll look.

Fun!!!! Enjoy the red! I'm adoring being a blonde again. I've been using the Loreal EverPure line for my hair and I love it (sulfate-free). It really kept the brilliance in through 3 months with no touch-ups. My colorist was actually amazed!

You ladies are so sweet, thank you :)

@Katie - Thanks for the John Frieda suggestion.

@Jessica - My naturally color is fairly dark as well (your's *may* be a touch darker), that's why went with a dark auburn. DO IT! ;-)

@Kimberly Michelle - I'll have to look into the Loreal EverPure. The sulfate-free thing is a big plus. P.S. I LOVE your blonde.
