My Mini Makeover

I'm pretty sure every lady out there knows what it feels like when you need to get a little makeover.  This was the case with me this week so I called Avanti Hair Salon and made an appointment. (Why they don't have a website is a little confusing to me, but I've always had a good experience there!)

It was my first time having Amy do my hair and she was very sweet.  She listened to what I wanted to have done and then asked what had I done to my hair. Now maybe I should be a little embarrassed to admit that the last time I was a the hair salon was probably a year ago... and in that time, boy, had I played with color... the "do it yourself" way! And so my hair was a result of at least three different colors, one on top of another!  I of course don't recommend doing this unless you know what you are doing.  My hair happens to take color relatively well and I unfortunately, I'm not too picky!

Anyway, being the pro she is, Amy got my hair from a dull redish copper color back to my natural brown color and added some rocking highlights.  I was so thrilled, I decided to give myself a mini photoshoot to compare my before and after looks.

For my photography friends (or photografiends), it was also the perfect opportunity to try out my new wireless shutter release (Phottix Strato II Multi).  It's main purpose, I suppose is as a wireless flash trigger but it also has the shutter release function that I love.  It's relatively inexpensive and I highly recommend it if you are comfortable using your flash in manual mode.

So enough rambling, here are the results of my mini photo shoot!

The Before: a picture with my grandma from two weeks ago...

And After...

Love me some beautiful natural window light!

Happy Saturday Everyone!
