I was contemplating adding some black cherry highlights to my hair--see prior thread:
Well, I actually did it! Lots of photos because the color is a bit subtle depending on the light.
Pic 1 is the inspiration photo that Una found (I showed my stylist all the pics in the previous thread). Pics 2-9 are pre-color. DH and I went to DS2's graduation from his toddler class (my baby is growing up! Sniff sniff!) and then went out for a lunch date to a Danish restaurant and had meatballs, roast beef pumpernickel and pickled cucumbers. You can tell in some of the photos like #3 that my grey hairs were showing because it had been 4 months since my last color. My stylist said she had been thinking about my hair all week and planning out what to do. She did not do any bleach, but added black cherry highlights throughout. I had never had the foils done before (it was always one color) so that was new. She trimmed my bangs and hair, but left it on the long side which I wanted. She did a great job and I'm happy with the way it turned out!
In regular light my hair just looks brownish black like usual. But you can tell there are some burgundy highlights especially in natural sunlight or bright light. I am glad that it wasn't more dramatic, because I was worried I'd turn out to have clown hair if she went too bright! What do you think? Maybe next time I'll go for bold streaks (23)! Probably not, but fun to imagine becoming a full fledged UWP superhero!
