The Time I…Dyed My Hair Purple! 

On last Friday I entered a new chapter in my life, and hit a new milestone. Pondering on what I’m talking about?? Well I turned 25 last week folks! To say I was uber excited about my big day was an understatement. I think it was because it was the first time I celebrated an adult birthday in another city (I went to Vegas, post coming soon).

Anywho, I knew year 25 would bring a beautiful change, so I decided it would also be good time to switch up my hair color. So I ditched my brown curls and swapped them out for purple ones instead. I’ve been wanting to dye my hair a fun color since I was about 17 or so, but honestly I’ve always been quite scared of how I would be perceived. Since I’m now in this new phase of my life where I’m just so over caring about others opinions, I knew it was the perfect time to do it.

The process for finding a great stylist to do my hair transformation was super easy. There is only one hair stylist I trust, and that’s Liz Barnes. I knew she would see my vision, and help me execute it perfectly. I’ve been a client of hers for a few years now, and she was the first stylist to ever dye my hair (I was honey blonde, a few years ago.) It took about 3 hours total to dye my hair, but it was truly worth it. My hair is still soft, and my curl pattern is the exact same, and as of right now I haven’t had to change my go-to natural hair care products.

I must say I truly love my hair! It’s everything I envisioned and more. I feel even more empowered as a woman with my purple hair. If you’ve been contemplating switching up your hair style or color, I say go for it! Life is too short not to look the way you want to.

Make sure to view the pictures below discussing my hair transformation below.

First, Liz lightened my dark brown strands.


After my hair was lightened, my hair was deep-conditioned, and I was placed under a dryer.

Lastly, the new color was applied, my hair was washed/conditioned/dried, and then flat ironed.

I simply adore my new hair! It’s everything I wanted plus more.
