New hair bitches!
You don’t know how long I’ve wanted to add copper into my hair. In a perfect world, I’d go 100% legit redhead, but there’s no way I can maintain that. The solution? Balayage. Miyoko at SEVEN the salon (Bellevue, WA location) did a full balayage to lift my ends, and then colored over them with a coppery tone. Instead of the typical ombre look, she incorporated my natural hair throughout for dimension and richness.
When I sat in her chair, the two key words I told Miyoko were copper and balayage. I let her do what she wanted from there, which was a good choice. I knew I could trust her because she had beautifully styled and dyed hair herself (never trust a stylist with a whack cut or dye job!). I love my hair because it’s the perfect balance between natural and funky. And I needed a little bit of funky.
