Makeover Monstrosity - Part II

Look at me...fabulous blond highlights shimmering in the sun, dazzling all who see. Everyone who looks is almost blinded by the sheer glow of my magnificence. Brrrrriiiiiiiing. Oh, hit the snooze button. That was a phenomenal dream. Drat!


So, thinking I would look like Charlize Theron I picked up a L'Oreal highlighting kit. It comes with a small highlighting wand for subtle highlights or a brush for more "dramatic" highlights. Well, who wouldn't want those?! And whenever I've gotten highlights at the salon they use a brush, so that's what I opted for. As soon as the brush hit the solution, I became possessed. I was highlighting places that where the sun don't shine (no, not there...but you get the point). It was my mission to use up every last bit of that highlighting cream. Why? Because I can't waste anything. So more is better when it comes to highlights, right?!

Stay with me here. Fast forward 30 minutes. I get out of the shower. Eagerly anticipating my new found gorgeousness and all I saw was a big blob of really blond on top and some sort of brownish-blondish underbrush. My "highlights" basically turned out to be hair color for the entire top section of my head, but the under parts of my hair are still the darker color. Egad.

Late thirties and I do something like this at least once a year. I think I'm channeling my inner beautician. No worries, though. That's why they've invented the baseball hat (pink of course) and the ultra cool head scarf!

I learned long ago, I cannot do hair...I cannot cut hair, I cannot cut my kids' hair. So I had to quit trying to save a buck and go get it done!!

I once had a hair thud happen to me long ago. I cam out of it pretty okay. My mom's saying, 'it's just hair' didn't 0 help one bit!

You have more guts than I do. I squeeze my eyes tightly shut, and rush through the color aisle, and don't look, because IT IS TEMPTING!!!
