Brunette to Blonde with Aveda

We often take risks with our image when something drastic occurs in our lives, such as a break-up from a bad relationship. But why should we wait until then to do anything? The longer you wait, the less likely you’ll do it, so seize the day while you can! I partnered up with Aveda to give myself a drastic hair color change and in doing so, I said goodbye to the brunette life and hello to the blonde side. 

I’ve always wanted to go lighter with my hair, but was afraid of the circumstances surrounding bleaching. The upkeep of going lighter isn’t always fun, from monthly trips to the salon to the careful maintenance to prevent it from turning brassy. Hair is definitely not cheap! So why now? I promised myself this year that I would take more risks, travel more (as previously mentioned in this post), and do what really makes me happy. Instead of focusing on the reasons why I cannot, I am looking for just 1 good reason to just do it. For this situation, blondes have more fun right? 

I prepared myself for a long day at the salon. Planet Salon made sure I was comfy, cozy, and well taken care of. My stylist, Carly, and I started off with a brief overview of what to expect realistically of my color goals. She was very thorough and detailed throughout the entire process. We went through 2 processes of Aveda Enlightener, due to my dark hair and Carly was able to finish me off with an ash blonde color. I absolutely love how it turned out and now that I’m this light, I can play around with more colors in the future!

With summer around the corner, I’ll be taking my blonde hair out in the sun for some major fun.
