Rainbow Hair

I've had long dark dark brown hair now for a few years and really was tired of my everyday braids. I wear (wore) two braids almost daily to keep my hair untangled and off the back of my neck.
I messaged a local hairdresser (artist) Megan McDonald and gave her less than four hours to get ready to give me rainbow hair.

The day was chock a block full of unusual happenings. The sprinkler room at work sprung a leak, The locked door handle to the sprinkler room came off in my hand, Screws sheared off the housing for my tow motor.... All things considered, I think Megan did a phenomenal job!

She started by lifting the multiple applications of natural black box dye from my hair. She barely winced. Just tucked right in and pulled that colour out.

She chose some fantastic colours and began to map out a colour arrangement.

Look at all that cello! I look like a Christmas sweet!
She kept the colours true and separate. Some amazing on the spot thinking I must say.

Then the power went out!
That's right! No power or lights. Megan's family came to the rescue! Her husband rigged up a light to the family van and we all hunkered down on the porch. Megan gae me a stellar layered cut while her kids handed clips and made sure we were well looked after.

This really is a great cut! Never mind the fact that she had to make do with a construction spotlight and weather. Look at those colours!!!

This is after a blow dry and style. Notice the HUGE SMILE!

Such a load of colour! I've always wanted to be a magical rainbow.

This is the next day after some pin curls.

I think the purple is my favorite.
Check out Megan's page for some other gorgeous styles. Can't thank her enough. So Happy!
