Toffee, Butterscotch, and Mango


I've been too timid to try it for about 5 years now... but I finally got up the nerve and dyed my hair today. Lisa at CA Looks said she mixed "toffee, butterscotch, and mango" to give me the shade I wanted. She also left some of my natural highlights around my face, which helps it look pretty natural. I am happy with the result; I feel much more appropriate. Unlike most blondes, my hair wasn't darkening with age, it was becoming ashy and dull. At the same time, I felt like my skin was becoming pinker and the combination of those two things left me feeling washed out. This color feels so much richer and I feel like I look healthier. I also love the light and breezy cut. What a needed change!



Thanks to Grammer Lynda for watching the kiddos and for being my photographer so I could post this. I appreciated that break, the "me time" out at the salon. So fun!

my first instinct was "oh shoat, not ru's gorgeous blonde hair!" but i have to say, you look beautiful; it's such a pretty color and really sets your blue eyes off! (though, you now, I think you'd look pretty with a trash bag on your head) hug you!

You're so pretty. :)
Your colorist did a great job. It looks really natural--someone meeting you for the first time would never guess it's not your normal color.
