At - Home - Highlights!

A big, huge, gigantic thank you goes out to my wonderful mom, who sent me packets of bleach and some 40 volume from America so I could do my own highlights at home instead of paying $100.00 every month! While I loved my Korean hair stylist and his uber chic salon, I just wasn't happy last time I went!  I was there for 4 HOURS, my hair was kind of orange tinted, and I still had 1/4 inch roots!  WTH!

So, last night I took matters into my own hands and tackled my more than an inch of grown out dark brown roots!  Unfortunately, I didn't have a bleach brush - the brush you use to apply the bleach mixture, so I bought a make-up brush from the dollar store!  
Hi, I'm Jill Resourceful Anderson!  Nice to meet you!  

Luckily, it worked like a charm!  It's been 3 years since I've colored my own hair, and there were some awkward moments when I was trying to do the back, but all in all, I think it turned out half way decent! :)  What could be better than $100.00 to spend on something other than a visit to the salon! 
P.S. Mom, I need more!! wink, wink!


  1. You may want to try the Lee Chul Kerker Salon to the right of Home Plus (if you're looking at home plus) they're really nice (not as cheap as doing it at home but an option), if you don't want to do it yourself every time. I got magic straight done their and my hair dyed there too

  2. Oooh, lovely! Thanks for the heads up!

  3. you are so brave to do that yourself!

  4. Bri. I'm not totally sure, but I think it's probably between a dusty blond and medium brown! I haven't gone natural since High School!
