I’m constantly trying new colorists but it’s very rare that I find one that honestly impresses me. I had a full head of highlights done at The Private Room a few weeks ago and guys, I was truly impressed. Tina, the founder, gave me the straight talk that yes, she would give me the icy blonde shade that I wanted but only if I promised to lay off the flat iron. I mean, I get it, but it’s HARD. If I was able to get my hair blown out every day, no problem, but I can’t. I have to blow dry my own hair and yeah…I’m not very good at it. SO the flat iron helps out.
I decided to give it up, in exchange for the icy blonde shade that I covet…and so far, so good. Tina is a straight shooter, which I love, and she could even tell that I take iron supplements just by the way my color processed. SO crazy. I am totally going back.
