I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

Going, going...blonde

Charlie wanted a change, and this is what we did today.

We both like the cut and the color, but it didn't come easy.

The last time I messed with his hair, it was long and he wanted me to put a staightener on it. It didn't turn out well. I misread the directions and his hair broke off around his ears. I didn't cut it today, we went somewhere to have that done, but I assured him I could color it as he wanted to go blonde, again.

Well, I was wrong.

The blonde color we put on it turned it red. Bozo red. Since his hair is so short now, I'd only used half of the bottle, so we dried it and put the second half of the bottle on it. Another 45 minutes and less red, but now it was leaning more towards the orange family.

By this time he's telling me he'll go to school with it orange, that he doesn't pay attention to what kids say, but I just couldn't send him out of the house with orange hair. Fortunately my neighbor had a spare box of blonde hair color. When I put my neighbor's color on it, the poor kid said it hurt so bad he could cry. After half the time allotted per the instructions, he asked to please let him rinse it. So he did. It looks much better than the orange, but it's still got a tad of a reddish tint to it.

Maybe in a few weeks he'll let me try again. I may have to do it in his sleep...

I think his hair looks great! You did a good job because I didn't notice the tinge until you mentioned it.

He's such a good sport, letting you practice for your cosmetology license on him! ;)

It looks blonde to me. Good job on the cell phone incident. First and foremost good job to your son in the way he handled it, and secondly to you.

Well, from here it looks great! I love that men can feel good about changing their looks these days. Used to be small changes "behind closed doors"!! I think it is a keeper!

And Kathi, thank you for the kind remarks on my blog. I am far better and should be back to myself very soon. :)

Okay, Nancy's remark confirms that I remember the last hair incident.

Save up and go to a salon Charlie! :)

Still, after all that it looks great!

I have never had the nerve to color or cut hair. You are a brave woman!

Looks very trendy... The great thing about guys coloring their hair is, they can shave it off and still look good.

Orange, green, blue, blonde or whatever - he's still such a cutiepie! :)
