Don't judge me.

My Reese has been begging to get her hair colored for over a year. Well we finally gave in. I had hoped I could hold her off till jr. high, but obviously that is not what happened.
I have to say, that I have two personalities that have been battling about this. The mom says no, and the hairstylist in me says, why the heck not?
Now before you go freaking out on me, it really does look pretty. Plus look at that face, you can tell she's so excited.
It all started when we ran to the beauty supply to pick up some color. Reese said "mom, you're really good at doing people's hair." (apparently she was trying to butter me up) "Do you think you could color my hair blonde?" I said I could, but probably wouldn't. She continued to ask me the entire drive home. And me thinking fully that my husband would say no said, "Reese if dad says it's ok, then I'll do it".
As soon as we got home she rushed down and he told her yes, but not all blonde only highlights, (which I'm glad he stipulated.) Any way I just used a high lift, (for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, that means not as damaging and not too bright of a blonde.) She was sitting there saying, "I'm so excited, I'm so excited."
In the end, I think she was a bit disappointed because she doesn't look blonde. But it just looks kind of like sun highlights, I should have taken an after shot. I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures later. Anyway how cute does she look under that dryer?

No judgements here. I would have done the same thing. I am excited to see how it turned out. I am surprised you didn't do it sooner. :)

Ah I had you take the same picture of me the first time I dyed my hair. :) She looks darling, and being a hairdresser it's hard not to use those skills on your kids if they want them! :) She's lucky to have you!
