Taking the black out took an incredibly long time. From start to finish, I was in the chair for 5 hours. I've never had to go through that before.
It was a good time for a new design. I'd had the old one for 5 years and I was ready for a change, plus I broke up with my previous stylist so it felt right to let the new one take the reigns rather than get her to copy someone else's work. She did a really good job, and for almost half the price of what the old stylist charged.
I do need to find a dye that is more of a primary blue for the wedding. This teal doesn't go with the wedding colours.
