In September I traded in my brown locks for a radiant red hue thanks to Sassoon Salon‘s color director, Jade DelProposto-Thornton. I can’t begin to explain how much I love being a redhead. I feel more confident, it complements my complexion and it enhances my overall appearance. Not that I’m hating on my days as a brunette, for once I feel like my look is one-of-a-kind. By early November, my roots started and that’s when I realized: I STILL WANT TO BE A REDHEAD! So I booked my color appointment stat and since I was overdue for a cut, I booked that too.
I thought I’d just be getting a touch-up, but after some pretty persuasion from Jade (read: SIGN ME UP!), we decided it was time to kick it up a notch. Post-color application, there is nothing more relaxing than a nourishing deep conditioning treatment and scalp massage.
During my hair consultation with Allison Lyle, Sassoon’s creative director, I told her I wanted to go short again. Like, just above the shoulder short. Parting with my long hair has never really been an issue for me and I was totally inspired to chop it off thanks to Giuliana Rancic’s cute bob (who by the way tweeted at me last weekend.. I die!).
Sassoon Salon at Tysons Galleria is also offering 20% discount for new clients that book an appointment and mention Politics of Pretty. If you live in the area, I highly recommend booking an appointment at Sassoon! The staff is so nice and attentive. I instagrammed a sneak peek at my new ‘do but click for more to see the entire look!
In case you’re wondering about the lipstick I’m wearing it’s Lipstick Queen in Metal Wine by Poppy King. They sent me a sample from The Metals collection and I have been wearing this color every day since I got it. I’ve never been much of a satin lipstick type of girl but I love the metallic finish. It’s also one of the smoothest lip formulas I have in my makeup arsenal so this has been my go-to the last few days with the chilly weather.
What do you think of my new look?
