new hair, new hair!

last week i had the pleasure of visiting SEVEN the salon at their bellevue location. 
i had an appointment with kat, SEVEN hair guru. 
kat has been styling hair for almost eight years;
she is magic, let me tell you. 

when i arrived at the salon, my only thoughts were:
"i need a cut, color, and possibly a leave-in conditioner to manage
all these nasty tangles!"
i left SEVEN with what feels like a completely new head of hair!
^^^ before & after (with kat) ^^^
^^^ the back. i didn't even know my hair could look like that! ^^^

kat came prepared with a plan for my hair:
new layers, brighter colors, yet warmer // darker for fall,
more volume, and shine! 
she was hoping i would go for bangs, 
but this girl was too nervous. 

prior to my appointment, my hair was incredibly light due 
to repeated balayage treatments. 
i love the blonde, but agreed with kat - time for something new.
^^^ working her magic ^^^

welcome new warm, dark and shiny locks!
throughout my appointment, kat explained the purpose behind 
each of her movements.
for example, drying hair at the angle pictured above will 
provide my hair with more volume. 
in addition, using a round brush will add both volume and shine.
kat also taught me several tricks for styling my hair,
especially with the approaching holidays. 

i have a special post to share some of these tricks with you! 
please stay tuned.
xoxo.
