I feel like Mary Jane Parker

Although I've had two showers this weekend, I didn't wash my hair until after the gym tonight to let it set for 48 hours.

Not having done color since 2002, I thought more of the color would wash out but the re-pigment treatment really helped!

Re-pigmenting, if you haven't had it done, involves covering your beautiful baby blonde hair with goo the color of a highlighter. Because you strip out the pigment to go blonde, you need pigment to help go back to a darker color.

Anywho, Gavin and Rich, the colorists, told me that I wasn't allowed to look in the mirror so they turned the chair around a la What Not to Wear.

What they didn't know is that I could see my hair in the mirror across the salon. I literally yelled (pardon my French) "OH MY FUCKING GOD!"

Bright. Orange.

I looked like Ronald McDonald.

Gavin and Rich held my hand and told me to trust them. They were right.

(Props to DH for taking my picture. This one is much more flattering than in the bathroom with overhead lighting and no flash! Also, my boobs look really big. Do they look like this all the time? Heaven help us!)
