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. Since Rowan is now 3 months old, I’m feeling like I’m getting my groove back and I wanted my hair to reflect that. Ya know, so I can be a cool mom (insert Amy Poehler in Mean Girls meme here).

SEVEN the salon is located in both Bellevue at the Bellevue Square Mall and in Seattle at Pacific Place. I visited the Bellevue location. If a modern, sleek salon is your jam, SEVEN is it. All in the details: hypnotic mixed beats, an epic fish tank, and black and white photo walls of hair and style legends past the likes of Bianca Jagger and Halston.
