My girlfriend text ed me last week. -Sleepover and color my hair?- My daughter was staying at the ex's which is a long story and going to stop soon, so I replied *YES*.
We started out at the gym for a killer workout, and then headed over to Sally beauty and the liquor store. She made her famous Green Chili (I am outing her. 505) and we popped open the Wine.
About 3 hours later she looked exactly the same even though we were trying to make her blonder and I.... well, I had jet black hair with red highlights. So for the last week or so, I have been hiding either at home or work.
Now the real fun part of this is how my $12.00 hair coloring kit turned into $310.00 and counting.
You can't go into Sally Beauty with out leaving with a few other "you have to have this" crap. So $60.00 later I walked out just knowing that I was going to look like a beauty queen.
Then, because I am a real wine connoisseur, I spent $12.00 on a bottle of Yellow Tail. That is how I roll.
Then Mindy had to call and ask me to go out on Friday and I was not going out looking like Elvira, so I called my good friend that does my hair when I am not drinking wine and set up an appointment. $115.00 (which is only because she felt sorry for me and is my friend) later, I felt like a new woman and was ready to hit the town.
Of course I had some appetizers and drinks to celebrate my new look. (thank god for boys buying our drinks all night long) I only spent $40.00 the whole night.
I can't have a new hair color and not change my makeup (it just wouldn't look right), so I went to Walgreen's to invest in some cheap stuff just to see what colors I like before spending a lot of money on the better brands. $83.00 later I walked out and guess what? Yep, none of it looks good with the new hair color. Oh, and not to mention that as we are roaming through Walgreen's, my daughter was throwing random shit in my cart. So I am now a proud owner of a Pooh hat and gloves that I didn't catch. Urg!
Someone needs to shoot me next time I say I am having wine and coloring my hair. PLEASE!
