You Asked For It

For those of you who have been bugging me for photos of my disappointing dye job, I finally have photos for you. This first photo is my "before" photo.


These next two photos are my "after" photos. I had Phil take them outside in the sunlight so as to make the color more noticeable. BTW, those darker spots are just shadows from the trees in my backyard.



It really doesn't look bad. I think I'm just disappointed that it's not darker and brighter. I think I was going for a more "autumn" look, and instead it looks more "summer" to me. What do you think?

Sorry but I am going to need a "head on" face shot. It looks somewhere between strawberry blonde & a light reddish brown but to really tell I need to see it on you face first!

It looks pretty :)

Sorry, Andrea. No make-up means no face shots. I'll try to remember to have Phil get some more shots of me the next time I wear make-up.

Yeah, it does look a bit summery but with winter coming and all it will make you feel good..this is all guessing by the way, I haven't really experienced winter but I'm guessing that it could make you feel good. Regardless, it looks great!

It does look lighter than before but it's still very pretty. Do I see some reddish tones in thier?

I like to mix burgundy and black.

Do you have a tail growing out of your left arm?

Melodie said...

Kelsey, I'm a Florida lifer, so I haven't experienced a "real" winter either.

TMM, The color on the box was "auburn" and the photo on it was much darker and redder.
And the tail belongs to my cat, Bella, who insisted that I rub her belly while Phil was taking the pics of my hair.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your comment on my coal mining story was wonderful. Thanks so much and your hair is lovely but it is always disappointing to not get what you want.

I like it! I am going to have mine done on Sat. I always go blonde in the summer and dark in the winter. I am wierd like that.

It's a very nice color, even if it wasnt what you were going for.

Michelle said...

I think it looks great! :)

Andrea said...

I like the color a lot, Melodie, even if you can't give me a "face shot" - LOL! But after the hair color year I've had, believe me..I TOTALLY understand when it isn't what you thought it would be! Are you trying to cover the spectrum this year (like me - LOL) - ha ha? So far this year you've been brunette, blond & now red. I like a gal who likes to changer her hair color!

Hey, I like it... if you don't, can't you just buy another darker box of dye, and do it again?

Kaycee said...

No way, it's definitely "autumney" if that's a word..hehe if not , I just made it one. It looks GREAT!!
