Why? Well, I'd been getting sick of my long waves. Hair's been so unwieldy that it always pulls free of the tightest bun when playing soccer. And with the weather decidedly summery, it's just been so hot and heavy (in a bad way). In Tagalog, nakakabanas!

So off we went to the Azta Urban Salon at Alabang Town Center for my makeover. Below, click for the step-by-step transformation...and the "after" picture!
But before anything else...well, let's start with another "before":
BLEACH!!! I admit this part was a bit freaky. When it was first on my head it was like blue goop. Then not even 40 minutes later, that blue goop turned the dark brown tresses blonde. AMAZING!
I also have to say, the Azta crew really know what they're doing. I was waiting for it to hurt or tingle, but it didn't feel unpleasant at all. It helped that they left a section of roots alone first and then applied bleach there for the last 10 or 15 minutes or so of coloring, so my scalp was sunog-free.
And so, after getting the dark mauve blonde dye on, waiting about 40 minutes for the color to take, a marathon shampooing and a few swings of the blow-dryer later, here's where we end up:
Here it is, two days later and after my own attempts at blow-drying:
Precisely what I wanted. Thank you Azta!! Sooooo worth it!
So what do you think? Does it fit me? Are YOU planning a summer makeover too? Share away!!
