Tutorial Tuesday & Linky Party - An Old Fashioned Sleepover

Well... not actually. But that's what it felt like! My very own bestie came to visit me yesterday all the way from Lubbock. Well, actually her and her man were down this way visiting his fam, so she stole away for the day to come and hang out with me and Baby A. We spent the afternoon chatting away, playing with my little Baby A, and doing things that girls do. Like my hair. It almost reminded me of when we were 13 and staying up late watching Princess Bride and talking about boys. :)

Did any of you see Lauren Conrad's funky July 4th hair on her blog the beauty department this month? We did. It was incredible! And as often happens, we were instantly in love and had to try it out. Unfortunately, since Lauri is still growing out her bob from last year, I am the only one with hair long enough to give it a go at the moment. But just wait 6 months and we'll be back with pictures of her hair too! ;)

Ready for this??

What do you think?


We could not have been happier with the way it turned out. Especially since we were both new to the whole self-bleaching thing. Thank goodness, I would have hated to post to you today about how we burned my hair off last night, haha! Hopefully I can get some better pics when the hubbs gets home from work later. It's kind of hard taking pictures of your own hair... especially when it's soooo long.

If you want to try it out, the beauty department has their tutorial HERE. Of course, I am always happy to answer questions if you need me to! Luckily, I got lots of great info from the lady at Sally's Beauty Supply, so if you purchase your goods there don't be afraid to ask for help!

These are the colored dyes that I used. They came highly recommended by Sally's lady, and they're supposed to have great holding power. They're also really vibrant, and that was a huge plus for me. I think Sally's had about 15 different colors in this brand:

We only ended up using a tiny bit, so I probably have enough dye to do this another 50 times, haha!

Enough of my silly antics, let's see what you've been up to! Link up your crafts and projects below! Be sure to use the direct link to the actual post, and be nice and go visit some of the other great links on the list. :) Feel free to grab a button from below and get linking!

As always, I hope you all are having a great week!!

I can't believe you did this - so brave! It looks gorgeous and I'm very impressed that you did it and it looks like the original (I worry that if I did it, I'd end up with some weird bleached strands and some weird mixed dyes strands or something gross)! : )
