Arrojo Salon Makeover

I've been wanting to dye my hair for, oh, about ten years now. Yep, since high school I've wanted to go blonde, pink, blue, jet black, and everything in between. But for some reason (read: fear) I never took the plunge. This month, more than ever, I'd been craving a change of hue, perhaps because of the transitional time in my life. I just finished my year at MTV, and I want to thank all of you again for supporting me and helping make my dreams come true.

So anyway, back to my hair. When I was contacted recently by the famous Arrojo Salon about coming in for a complimentary service, I knew I had to go for it. I told my colorist, Kelly, that I wanted light brown, and I'm really pleased with how things turned out. It's crazy because depending on the lighting, it can look red or even blonde! My stylist Emily made my hair look so fabulous; she gave me beachy curls that I never knew my hair was capable of having. All in all, I had a great experience and I can't wait to see the final shots. Here are some photos of the process:

  7. Love the new color. I'm considering a change in hair myself. I hope I'm bold enough to go all the way. What do u think about going from really long to short?

  9. The color is super cute and along the lines of what I've been thinking about doing. Do you plan on going lighter with your brows? Or keeping them dark? I've been debating whether to keep my color warmer so I could avoid having to lighten my brows...

    Also, have you found yourself experimenting with new makeup colors since your hair is now lighter?

  13. That color is so flattering on you, Gabi!

    Not sure if this is the right place or if others have this problem, but I follow you through Google Reader and it never updates when you post something new. I've re-added your site a few times but still no luck. Any ideas? Or maybe others have mentioned this?
