Disclaimer!!! Don't Do This at Home!!!

Because I do hair for a living, I get bored with my own hair. So to change up my hair for fall, I've gone to the darker side. ( I do not recommend you doing this at home) I couldn't get anyone at work to take my hair challenge on, so I did what any impatient hairstylist would do and took matters into my own hands.

My natural hair color is primarily dark brown thanks to my Dad. But, thanks to my Mom, I got blue eyes and thanks to both of parental figures, I got a fair complexion and lots of gray hair. What this means for me is that I can be either blonde or brunette. I've been working my way lighter and lighter, which I have enjoyed. But, when I get the itch, it needs to be scratched...

Before, me as a blonde...

With brassy roots and grow out...

Close up...yes I have lots of gray :(

Here's once I got all the color on. I made sure to wrap a few of my highlights up in foils so that I could keep some dimension and lightness around my face.

It's getting darker!!!

This is one of the many reasons you don't do this at home...Unless you don't like your bathroom wall color, and then it might give you an excuse to tackle a project of a different kind :)

I did spray some Clorox cleanup on the door to help lighten up my mess making skills.

Trying to keep my mess to a minimum...

Ok..back story on the Kitchen gloves...I didn't have any latex gloves, so, I used the next best thing. Gotta scratch the itch!!!

Here is the end result...Me as a brunette!!!

You tell me which one you like better!

I know which one I like!!! Nothing feels better than a well scratched itch!
