Mommy Make-over: Ombre Hair

As the weeks have gone by and you are in the "home-stretch" of pregnancy, you continue to cope with the changes happening in your life and to your body.  So in order to do so, I made a vow to myself to do one nice thing for myself for every week that I make it to the 39 weeks!  One of the nice things that I was most excited about was my hair cut/hair dye.

According to the stylist extraordinaire, Ms. Tamy, I have "virgin hair," meaning I have never dyed it before. The last time I was preggie, I got a long bob-cut, which I enjoyed, but I began to miss my long locks.  I mulled over it for a month about what I wanted to do.  Of course, I took to Pinterest to help me decide, and the hair style that I most gravitated to was ombre hair.  The new trend, which I like even better is sombre hair (subtle ombre).  I don't really care for the ombre hair that when styled straight, you can see blocks of color, or lines breaking up the colors.  So I was a bit nervous going into Mondi Salon, but Tamy said, "Don't worry."  So I didn't, particularly since she seemed super confident, showed me pics of past work, and I was referred to her by a friend that I trusted!


I have always loved my jet black hair and didn't feel the desire to dye it, but I wanted something different as I am going into this new phase in my life =)

I have to say that Tamy is the best stylist that I have ever seen!  I usually walk out of the salon feeling disappointed at how the haircut turned out.  She listened and actually followed through with what I wanted (keeping my hair long, the sombre colors, and styling it the way I wanted it).  The makings of a great stylist is not just their talent (which is a large percentage), but can you talk with them for the hours that you are there.  The answer is YES!  You can talk to her about anything--ethnic culture, pop culture, etc.  It's also nice that she had old school Hip Hop/R&B/Pop radio going on in the background!  She is just so friendly.  Plus, she works on Sundays!  Her attention to detail is impeccable, no rushing here!


And shameless selfies to promote Tamy's work!  If you are interested in making an appointment, let me know =)  I know I was very happy after this wonderful hair make-over!!
