Ok, here’s why you’ll want this info…

I’ve been in kind of a blah spot when it comes to my hair. I’d been dying it “Violet Vixen” for about a year. Decided I wanted to get closer to my natural color so I dyed it brown for several months. Decided I wanted the red/purple/grape juice coloring. Nope. After a week, I was once again a brunette. Still not happy. That’s when I turned to Pinterest. Holy Jackpot!

So many choices! I’ve always wanted to go pink, like a cotton candy color but I didn’t feel quite dedicated enough go all in. I found a picture of my solution. It was just a few panels of pink, purple and blue.

I knew they were going to have to lighten my hair before any of the colors would show and that gets expensive, quick.

Luckily, I had a delivery going to Empire and grabbed one of their brochures. They offer everything from haircuts to hair dyes. From waxing excess facial hair to seaweed wraps.

I scheduled my appointment for the following day.

From the moment I walked in, I was taken care of. Everyone was so friendly! I briefly talked to the stylist and showed her a picture of what I wanted done.

She was very gentle. The process really didn’t take that long and maybe most important, there wasn’t the chemical smell I’d gotten so used to inhaling!

She bleached, washed, dried, colored and curled my hair… I was getting a little nervous about going up to the cash register… my grand total? $35. 

I’ll include photos, you can decide for yourself! In case I was a little unclear earlier, I HIGHLY recommend Empire Beauty!

I am what a majority of the general population would call "crazy" and at this point in my life, I wear that label with love. I am a lifelong circus act. I'm focusing on balance while learning to juggle. I write about deeply overwhelming emotions like grief and I also go out and perform stand up comedy. I am a constant work in progress, as we all are. So, join me on my journey if you'd like but respect is a must. Otherwise I'll have my elephant crush you in the center ring, under the Big Top. :) Seriously, who needs that negative shit in their life? Namaste.
