Highlights

Spring is almost here and with that, it’s time for a full head of highlights. My hair is naturally a medium blonde and I get highlights one to two times per year to lighten up my look. It can change the entire look of my face. I tend to feel washed out and dull at this point in the winter. Once I get highlights, I feel like a new person. I’ll be scheduling an appointment with my hairstylist as soon as possible.

Here is some “blonde-spiration” (not a word, but you know what I mean) for the time being.

Are there any treatments or things you like to do that make you feel better?


Carrie always looks great to me. This is what I wish I could wake up everyday and have my hair look like.


Love Gretchen's shade of blonde. It doesn't look brassy and is so bright.


Reese had such a pretty baby blonde shade to her hair.

I wish I could look right as a blonde, but nope I dont think I could..I have way too many freckles and I'm too fair skinned.

I love blonde hair but i am waaay too lazy to keep up with dying mine or doing highlights. I get my hair cut once a year, max. I know...lame. :) This week is going to be my yearly hair cut actually. :)

You can never go wrong with Carrie or Reese!

Highlights always make me feel a lot better, too. I'm actually thinking of doing some tonight. I still have temporary "light brown" color in. It washed out a good bit, but now it seems to have come to a halt.

I love Carrie's shade in that picture!

Just thought you should know - the glue thing did not work out so well. Took forever and a day to dry, and when I peeled it off, it just took a little dead skin off - no blackheads or clogged pores. I'll stick to the nose strips.

I LOVE the first one of Carrie. I want my hair to be that color too!

I am about to make this appointment too!! I had been pretty blonde for the last like 5 years and then for some reason I decided to go this super dark brown color in November. I liked it for maybe two months and now I'm over it and so ready for highlights and summertime!! :)

I love the blonde's you picked - and that is my favorite pic of Reese - she is too adorable!

You will have to post some before and afters!!

I'm getting ready to do my highlights for summer too. I love the look of Carrie's hair!! Definitely post photos when you are finished at the salon. {HUGS}

I can't pull off blonde, but those pics made me wish I could. I love Reese's hair but I bet it is harder to keep up.

I love your blond-spiration! I have the same thing going on. My hair pulls a little red, so I use blue shampoo (granny style) to get it more of the champagne blond look that I love! haha :)

Good news... it's 12:30 here and I haven't crashed yet! How are you doing?

Argh, I wish I could do blonder highlights. I am stuck with mousy brown naturally, so I'm only able to do caramel or reddish higlights. So boring!
