Giveaway: #LoveYourColor with Logan14 Aveda

I’ve never dyed my hair. OK, that’s a lie. I haven’t dyed my hair since the great Sun In orange-frizz debacle of 1999. (That will teach me to disobey my mother’s wishes.) But, I’ve blocked that out from my memory and burned every photo from that treacherous year (7th grade) and tried to move on with my life.

Since then, my hair has always been the same: thick, long and brown— a natural chesnut brown with long loose curls on the end, to be more specific.

It’s beautiful—my hair, I’m told—and I’m loathe to change it. OK, I’ve always been frightened to change it. It’s part of my identity. But, lately, I’ve been bored. I’ve had a Pinterest board of ombre hair for two years but was too scared to do anything the last two springs. So, I continued to pin ombre styles and my hair remained brown.

Balayage, I’m told, is the new ombré, as I discovered that all my stylish friends and Bitches do it. Steph, my co-editor, is all about the Balayage. Then, Shruti, our Marketing Bitch went to Logan 14 Aveda to get her brown locks Balayaged. Apparently I was just the uncool Bitch with boring brown locks.

Derived from the French word meaning to sweep or to paint, Balayage provides a more subtle, natural hair color—like the sun-kissed look of our youth. It grows back with soft, unnoticeable regrowth lines, so it’s less drastic and easier to maintain.

So, I decided to go for it and spent three hours in the chair at Aveda, with the ever-so-sweet Gabby talking me through every step and off the ledge as I stared wide-eyed back at myself in the mirror through the whole process. Those foils are absolutely terrifying if you’ve never dyed your hair!

  1. I completely relate to the Sun-in fiasco. I have dark brown hair, so why oh why did I think Sun-in would look good in my hair? It was definitely orange-ish.

  2. My worst hair story wasn’t actually a bad cut, it was just more money than a high school girl should ever spend on a hair appointment. My hair dresser convinced me to highlight my hair, resulting in this brunette becoming a blonde. I ended up loving the color and the layers she added to my hair, but when she rang me up, I had sticker shock and ended up having to split the bill with my mom since my part-time dry cleaning job couldn’t help me cover the full cost.

  3. A relaxer turned into a ‘chemical cut’ years ago. My hair isn’t that coarse, mild works perfectly (even the child’s formula gets the job done). Long story short–hair became brittle because a higher strength formula was used, had to get it chopped. Couple of lessons learned. If a stylist looks terrified to do a relaxer, I will ask for another stylist who feels more comfortable. Now I only get them twice a year. Also, I swear by GNC Biotin vitamins. They get your hair and nails growing fast!

  4. I once tried to color myself from drugstore boxed dye – never again! I would love to try a long bob style for the spring – and maybe lighten the color a little!

  5. As a naturally blonde swimmer back in high school, I managed to successfully avoid the gnarly green tinge that some blondes get from the chlorine. However, celebrating a successful season by going dark red – though better than unintentional green – was still not a great move. This spring, I would love to take my warm blonde hair in the icy, white blonde direction and bring the length up a couple of inches closer to my collarbone.

  6. I would love a new ‘do for the spring! My worst hair story is when I decided to trim my own hair… after BURNING IT on my gas stove. Lots of lessons that night: don’t cook over an open flame when the hanger has arrived, if you’re hair is long enough that it hits the flames then chances are you’re in need of a haircut and finally… don’t give yourself that haircut, especially after burning your hair (and dinner). I had to make an early appointment the next morning to even out the mess of a trim I gave myself.

  7. Totally self-imposed – I dyed my hair box blonde in high school, turning my dark brown to a special shade of red. Dang I loved it, but looking at photos I’m not entirely sure what I was thinking.
