It was the highlight of my day.
Anyway, my mom came down on Friday and I mixed my chemicals like any good chemist does - in a bowl decorated like a soccer ball using a plastic knife to stir the goop with. I am a professional, after all. Well, a professional massage therapist, a professional human resources manager, even a professional mom, but NOT a professional hairstylist. That's beside the point. I got it all mixed and instructed my mama what I wanted. She's not a professional hairstylist, either. Again, that's beside the point. So as she's applying the highlights, she says, "So, what color is this going to be?" She about shit when I said, "I don't know. I've never used this stuff before. I am just hoping I have streaks of lighter color. The color my hair is was not what I was expecting, so who knows how this will turn out. The product says 'iridescent' highlights, whatever that means." She kind of laughed and said, "Well, I guess we can't go wrong if you don't know what to expect." It turned out really pretty, though next time I will use a stronger peroxide so the highlights are lighter and do more of my hair so the highlights are more noticeable. I went very conservatively (which is not in my nature) this time since I didn't really know what I was doing. I don't have any before pictures and I don't know how well the highlights will show up in a picture. If I get a good one, I'll post it.
My mom's hair turned out good, too. She felt the same way I did, though. She wants it to be a little lighter the next time.
We're thinking we should go into the haircoloring business.
