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...
