FAVORITES: July 2014 + NEW Hair Cut and Color by Guy Tang!

June was all about transitions! I was busy traveling and settling into my new place, and you can see I recently went from jet black to sultry red hair. After 9 months of waiting, I finally was able to see Guy Tang to have my hair cut and colored. He is a hair magician with so much confidence and personality! I also truly appreciated how knowledgable he is about the chemistry of color, and even though it required 7 hours to accomplish this red tone, I am pleased beyond measure! I know many of you adore my low-maintenance black hair, but I wanted to branch out and try something different. This red is a mixture of permanent and semi-permanent color with a pure pigment coating, so it is truly unique and dramatic without being obnoxious. It reads darker and edgy on camera, but in white light or full sunlight, it transforms into a bright ruby red! I will be sure to update you with hair color maintenance tips and best practices as well, since I have received many requests for it after revealing this new 'do.

Also, please forgive me if I seem a little hyper in the video. I had to film at midnight and drank iced coffee prior to perk me up since I have been so sleep deprived this week, but I think it worked a little too well! That's why I try to stick to tea ♡ Please enjoy and happy shopping!

  1. Your hair is gorgeous! You look radiant and this color looks beautiful on you. I loved the favorites video, thanks for all your hard work! :)

  2. Wow you had to wait 9 months to get an appointment?! I feel like the color definitely looks good and suits you super well but I don't know if I'd say it's worth a 9 month wait >__<" I guess if the color stays in your hair for a really long time and still looks good then it's worth it so I guess I'll have to wait for your update later haha! :D Thanks for sharing and I'm glad you changed your hair up a bit without going too extreme.
