The Many Shades of Ashli's Hair

my bestie Bri & I, one of our many cosmic bowling nights 2009, dark brown with some blonde on top & chunky blonde pieces underneath

Christmas show 2009, my hair is pretty much black here

2010, little lighter than the 2009 picture

MY cousin Sheanice & I , beach day March 2012. My hair is SO faded. This is what happens when I don't keep up with the coloring, it turns a reddish color.
May 2012, this is probably my favorite hair color of mine. Dark brown with chunky blonde.
August 2012, Tampa FL trip for Luke Bryan concert, Lots & lots of highlights on top, kept it brown underneath

I don't know if you're like me but I'm slightly obsessed with coloring my hair. I know I know, its not good for it. But I only do it every 3 months usually. (thats good right?) My natural hair color is like a light brownish dirty blondish color. (that is a for real color y'all, look it up!) I don't like my natural color though. Its boring. I usually stick to the darker colors in fall & winter. And throw some blonde in it in the summer. Like this Friday I have a hair appointment!!! I am putting some blonde back in it! I'm excited!! I've been on the dark side for too long. I need some blonde in my life.... I love my hair dresser Kayla! Shes awesome! AND she is the one who introduced Andrew & I. I had been going to her about a year when my ex & I broke up. A few months after the break up she asked me if I was dating anyone & I wasn't so she started telling me about hers & her husbands friend Andrew. (or Box as they all call him, because he is bigger than a refrigerator box or something like that.. the boy is 6'4...) I was going to a different hair salon but it was just becoming way too expensive. So I started going to Kayla because some of my family went to her and she did such a great job! She was less expensive & closer to my house. Its funny how things work out. If I wouldn't have started going to her I may have never met Andrew.... So Kayla told Andrew she talked to me about him, he befriended me on FB, sent me a message asking me out on a date, we went out, 4 months later we were engaged, 6 months later we were married!!! Kayla is the best hair dresser I have ever had, obviously!! Now she has introduced another girl & one of Andrews friends. I told her if this one works out too the girl better start a match making business fo' sho'! The girls got skills.

Here is Kayla & Ben, her hubs, at our wedding Jan 2013. Great hair of course.

Anyways... I went down one of my rabbit trails with this post. As usual.

Do you dye your hair a lot? Do you have any good salon stories?
What color do you think looks best on me?


  1. Im naturally dirty blonde (ishhhh) but I dye my hair all the time. Currently Blonde! I absolutely love how you can pull off any hair color! Jealous!!:)

    1. I love your blonde!! I don't think I can pull off that much blonde lol. Thank you!!! :)

  2. I envy you. I've never colored my hair, but I've always wanted to. I'm just too scared I won't ever be able to get it back to my natural color. You look fabulous in every shade though! If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my photo diary from Venice. xo

  3. Yeh getting back to your natural color may be tough! lol. But its fun! Thank you!! :)

    I will check it out!! :)
