Hair Talk......

For those of you that have known me for some time, you know how important good hair is to me. It doesnt really matter what I am wearing or how much makeup I have on, as long as my hair looks good, I feel good. For years I was the one with "good hair" and people always asked me where I got my hair done. Well, in recent years I have found myself in a hair funk. It's as if I forgot how to do hair or what looks good....I cant seem to get it just right. So, I have tried different things.....and I always go back to the same. Long story short I think I finally highlighted my hair to death. Literally.... because after the last 2 highlighting jobs I have had done, my hair was literally like straw. I haven't been able to do anything with it for the past 2 months at least. It's just been awful and has made me feel awful in the process. Enter my friend Kim.

Kim has done my hair off and on for the past 7 years or so. I bounce around with hairdressers for no particular reason.....but everytime she has colored my hair it has turned out amazing! So, I called her for help. The verdict was scary. I was going to have to go darker for a while.

I have always been blonde but as I have aged and given birth to 3 children my hair has slowly but surely gone dark dark blonde, and I have refused to accept it. So anyway, I let her do her thing...and it is definitely darker but I am so happy with the results!

My hair already feels so much healthier although there is still some work to do. **this picture above makes its look lighter than it actually is....** This was just the first go around.... Knowing me I'll be light blonde again by Summer....and you can bet Kim will be the one coloring it. She really is fabulous!

Kim works at Bella Mia Salon in Midvale and this salon has everything your little heart could desire.

Nails, Hair, Massage, Pedi's, Waxing...even spray on tanning! Of course I had to bring Addison along with me (she has learn somehow right?) and the salon staff was so nice to her. I appreciated them keeping her company while I sat in the chair.

Kim was kind enough to give me a certificate for a free hair cut and color for anyone that is interested who reads my blog. So, if you live in the area (or not.... if you dont mind the drive) leave a comment on this post and let me know! First come, first serve.... you really wont regret it. And hello, who can turn down free hair service!!

Thanks Kim for your friendship and your help with my sad hair :)

So much for my comment about your hair being long! I love it short and dark like that...honestly, so cute. Too bad I'm not closer to win the gift certificate!

Oh, I wish I lived closer. I need a good haircut. Your hair looks great, as usual.

Ooohh...Ooohh....Pick me!! I need hair help in a serious way. Would love to have the certificate if it's still up for grabs. You're cute no matter what color your hair is :-) That first shot of the back looks just like the back of your mom's head! Dejavue. I can't count the hours I used to watch your mom do her hair and makeup....always beautiful. Love ya!
