A Color and a Cut (The New Natural) :)

Colt’s fiancee, Amber, recently got her cosmetologist license and is getting her business started at one of “The” places to work (locally), when it comes to hair salons.

I went to Amber for the first time Friday, because I was way overdue for a color, cut, and eyebrow wax. And yes, I color my hair and we may never know my true hair color these days, because I have no plans of seeing the natural (if I can help it). I like to think of it as “the new natural”.

I’ve gradually been growing my hair out after an inverted bob a few years ago (which I did love) because I wanted a change and it’s nice to be able to wear my hair up when I want to do so.

I think Amber did a great job! I was very pleased with the layers she put in it. I don’t know if you can tell by the pictures, but I have very fine and thin hair, so anything that gives it volume, I’m all for! She added some layers and gave me “my red” with blondish highlights for depth and dimension. Guess I love red everything, right? :)

And sorry that the pictures aren't the best quality.  We grabbed Jason's camera instead of mine (which is a small point and shoot camera) and Joy just snapped some quick photos for me.

These photos were taken the day after (today), which means I styled my own hair. Believe me the style looked much better when Amber did it. Doesn’t it always look better when they do it though? I noticed that I have it a little puffy there in the back. Wish I had thought to take the photos yesterday. Oh well….

Anyway, I just had to “brag” on her a little bit here because I am really proud of her. I think she’s going to be great at her work! She is very creative. I think my hair is in good hands. :)

Tammy~Your hair is beautiful! The color certainly suits your coloring. She did I great job! I always wait until I can not bear it anymore before I get my hair cut. As a matter of fact I just had mine cut on Tuesday...about 9 months since my last cut. I don't know why I wait sooo long.
You are so very beautiful!
Enjoy your weekend :o)

Very nice change Tammy! Love the color and the cut. I've been wanting my hair cut like that for a long time, cause like you, I have very fine, thin hair and I've yet to find someone that will do what I ask! We have more salons in this town than we know what to do with and I've been to most of them. Got tired of trying to grow it out so I've found a gal that cuts mine short the same every time and it works for me. But I may try to grow it out again to get that same style you have again one day! Looks like she's going to do well.

You are so beautiful, Tammy. You'd look good no matter what, but it is a very flattering cut and color. Very!
Reminds me that I could use a wax myself!

Hi sweet Tammy,
From one redhead to look fabulous! I love the color and the cut. Do you have some natural red in your hair? It sure looks like it. And you have the most beautiful brown eyes that look gorgeous with the hair color! I always wanted brown eyes! Love love love all of it! Good job Amber!

You have every reason to brag. It appears she is a natural! Your hair is beautiful. I am so read for a change, but can hardly wear it any other way. Yours looks beautiful. You are a beautiful lady.
