"Chosen Vessel's First Color, Highlight, and Cut"

Ok ladies, I did it, I got my locks colored and highlighted!!! Believe it or not this is the first time my hair has ever been dyed and/or highlighted, even before I got locks. I have never been big on color, but I LOVE IT!!! So at my appointment yesterday with the beautician, I got color, highlights, bangs, and layers. Before the cut, my locks were at the middle of my back but now they are a little pass my shoulders; I plan to keep my locks this length because they are much easier to manage and I still have good length. I will post photos of the back of my hair but for now here are a few photos.

Locked 7 years 1 months (Braid-out vs. Roller-Set)

Knotty Truth- Thanks!!

JL- You know the beautician created the batch with reddish/brownish hues to compliment my skin tone, so it is not a specific color, sorry.

Felicia- Thank you!! I still want to see your blog, do you have one?

Joyce- Thanks, the beautician tried to create a look that complimented my skin tone and I think he did a good job. I was afraid of color myself, look, it took me 7 years to finally get my locks colored...SO..I say GO FOR IT GIRL!!! I love it and I plan on trying some other varities of colors in the future!!!

Gerrylocs- Thanks!! That is what I was hoping for, I wanted to do something different with my locks, you know, take them up another notch :)
