Seasonal Hair Color Change: Platinum to Lived-In Blonde

It’s not a big secret that I have a tendency to get bored with my hair. I also seem to always gravitate toward a change this time of year as evidenced here and here. Well, this week is no different! I’m headed for a long overdue appointment Friday, and I CAN’T WAIT. So, I’m sharing a little inspiration for my seasonal hair color change.

Seasonal Hair Color Change: Platinum to Lived-In Blonde
Here’s the thing. I was contemplating chopping all my hair off again. I swear it’s like a form of self-torture that I put myself through. Grow my hair long, cut it short, and then be miserable while it grows back out. You’d think I would learn a lesson … 😉 Anyway, I’m ignoring my inner-hair demon this time around and keeping my hair long. I’ve worked too hard to get my hair to the current length, and I enjoy having the option to style it a variety of ways.

That doesn’t mean I’m not still bored with it, though. I know, I know. Never satisfied!

That’s where a seasonal hair color change comes into play. My hair went through the ringer this May. After a botched dye job the beginning of May, I had it fixed only two weeks later and then again six weeks after that. In other words, my hair is looking a tad over-processed with no dimension or depth. I’m over it! I would love once and for all to master the lived-in blonde look. I’m convinced this is the perfect hair color for me! It appears to be low-maintenance (goodbye, root line!), looks good straight or curled, and it looks way more natural. Plus, this hair color is great for those of us blondes that want to go a little darker for fall without losing the blonde completely.

I’m literally counting down the hours until Friday! I decided to head back to my favorite hairstylist, who’s about a half hour away, to help me make my hair dreams come true. I’ll be sure to share the results over on Instagram!
