Hair Do?

I got my hair done Tuesday night.

wanna see it??


I like it in the pictures, and then I see it in person and feel it's too brown. Haha! It's melted/ ombre with a darker version of my natural color on top to a caramel color on bottom. My stylist said it will get lighter on the ends- fade, but I'm still worried. I think I want it more dramatic/ noticeable.
*NOTE* I am in NO way saying my stylist didn't do her job. She's FANTASTIC and did an amazing job, I just wasn't clear or sure of what I wanted. It's all my fault.

What do you think?? Should I keep it as is or should I go back and lighten the ends some more? It WILL dry my ends out to do that. But is it worth it?

P.S. Be sure to enter the Dave Owens Music Giveaway for a chance to win a SIGNED album! I have it and LOVE it!

I think it looks stunning!

Kendra said...

I love it! I definitely think the ends will fade with time. Mine always do :)

ashley.warner said...

your hair looks so purty!
i think you should give it at least a week or so to see if it does change a little bit, then if not, go back and have her lighten the ends.

be sure to condition the crap outta your hair!

you're GORGEOUS! you make me want to cut my bangs!

Jenna (SewSavoirFaire) said...

First off...what a great cut! Your bangs look perfect!
Secondly...I know how it feels to not be completely in love with the final hair color and unless you go back and get it lightened how you 'envisioned' it...you won't be happy! It looks great now but I say go for the lighter color so its just how you want it!

melissa said...

Oh my goodness, this looks fabulous!
Wish I could see it in person :)

IT LOOKS FANTASTIC!!! Oh my word! I love love love it! Ow ow, hottayyyyy <3

Jess_TIB said...

How fun! Looks great!

I think it's always worth it to get what you want, especially with hair. Whenever I've "said something" rather than sit and just pretend to be really happy, I've always felt loads better :) That being said, it looks fabulous! Love the bangs too :)

I think it's pretty!!
I would just wait and let it fade. But I know what you mean about not knowing exactly what color to go with! My girl back in fl keeps the dye number on my file, so we always know! However it doesn't help me when I'm wanting to dye it on my own here in LA. Lol

give it some time. just give it some timmeeeee...

it looks great!

Ashley from Sloanbook said...

I wouldn't go back in! I think it looks great. I don't think it's worth it to put more dye on it so fast! Trust me I would know with my disaster! I got TONS of split ends & never blow dried or straightened it so it should have been pretty healthy. It WILL fade! Just don't use color specific hair products. Those will hold color more. But also depends on how much you paid :) it's up to you!

Elisabeth said...

i would leave it - it looks so good and its good to be a little darker for winter anyway. see if it really does lighten up and then go lighter next time you'd go in...but this looks so good i wouldn't change it :)

Jessica Wray said...

looks cute! I love it!

vintch said...

girl i love, love, LOVE it. you are so beautiful, i do believe you could wear crazy dreadlocks and still be gorgeous:) i share an office with a girl who moonlights as a professional hair stylist, and she loves it too:) have a beautiful day, girl!

Mallorie Owens said...

I love it! I think it looks amazing :) Love the bangs, waves, and color on you!

Kylie said...

I like it a lot! I just had something similar done on my hair....but a lot blonder! I just haven't posted pics yet. I'm a little nervous, but everyone I see says it looks good. So we'll see :)

megan danielle said...

oh i love it!! and i would definitely just let the ends fade on their own. it looks great!

my soul is the sky said...

it's lovely gent. i love the color but understand your "too brown" situation. I think it's great but it's your hair.... also, i learned that it's always good to wait at least 2 weeks because after then it'll be different than now, maybe lighter... (:

Chablis said...

I think it's pretty. It'd be nice to see a pretty picture instead of all these silly faces ;) I think you should wait it out at least 2 weeks. I bet you'll love it by then. I can't believe your hair is SO long already. Sickening.

Courtney said...

Gentri, I LOVE it!!!!

AllyM said...

GENTRI. I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVEEE it. Seriously it looks so good. I wanna get my hair did now.

xoxo

Loren said...

I'm not going to be any help here because I think it look amazing as is. But could also look amazing with a more dramatic color change. I think it depends on the look you are going for, but if you are just worried about changing it I think you should go for it.

Alyx said...

I really love it! I don't think you need to lighten the ends at all. Also... you rock those bangs - they look so great on you!

Amber said...

I think the color came out great! You should give it at least a week to see if it grows on you.

Amanda k. said...

It looks really cute the way it is, so maybe just give it a little time and see how you like it in a week or two.
I'm all about fun hair colors though, so if you are still thinking about it after those few weeks, go for it!

jessica said...

First of all, I absolutely love the cut! Your bangs look amazing.

Secondly, I think you should probably give it a week or two at least before you decide if you want it lightened. Color is SO much easier to change than cut, so you can still change it if you don't like it. I love the ombre look, but your color is definitely pretty too! Do what ever makes you feel most confident! :)

Reina said...

i like it^.^

Virginie's Cinema said...

It looks SO pretty! And I LOVE me an animated gif!!

I felt the same way after my last hair appointment so I decide to bleach my hair so it would be more noticeable, twice, and it's still to subtil for me! Darn.

Happy almost week-end dear!

Virginie ♥

I think its awesome! :) Keep it!

Alexis Kaye said...

I think it looks awesome girly! :) i love it!!!

carlee ellen said...

LEAVE IT!! i'm a cosmetologist and often the more dramatic melts are WAY TOO dramatic. yours looks absolutely STUNNING! and the ends will fade a little bit because they are more porous. it will still look beautiful as time goes on :) and its not worth the damage, trust me. i LOVE IT!

Autumn said...

It blends really pretty and looks very natural. My ends always lighten up regardless of whether they are dyed, so I am sure yours will even more since they are.

k.rahn said...

I think your hair looks GREAT!!! I wouldn't change a thing, at least not before you've had a chance to live with it for awhile. And the bangs? Perfect. Seriously.

Deveny said...

If you're going for the full ombre look, I'd say go back & get it lighter.
But I think it looks fab the way it is!!

Katherine said...

It's gorgeous! But I hate when you can't get across exactly what you're after and end up having that second day feeling of uncertainty! It looks great though, so I'm sure the feeling will pass :D

Emma Frances said...

I absolutely love it! But I also think it would look great if you went a little lighter on the ends!

Breezy said...

I think it is really cute!!

Tereza said...

looks great! i'm due for a hair cut too :)
hugs tereza

patience said...

beautiful! god those curls are just SOOOOO perfect. just the way i like them :)

Natasha Louise said...

Looks so great!!! My Mum is a Hair stylist she always tells me to wait a few washes when it properly settles and blends and then see how you feel? I think it looks lovely though :)

My Songbook said...

I think it looks great, and I agree, that it will probably fade.

Cat said...

It looks amazing babe!! :D xx

Shelby said...

oooh i think it's gorgeous!!! i love the color and the style, i don't think you should sacrifice your healthy ends for a lighter color... let it fade!!!

i don't know why you don't get updates to my blog, i've tried everything i can think of to fix it! i think google is punishing me for switching to wordpress... gfc will be cancelled for non-blogger sites in the near future anyways, so we'll all have to come up with a new solution if we've jumped ship on blogger.

i'm sorry!! you can follow me on twitter @shelbsss35 or on bloglovin from the buttons on my site!

Gentri, I think it looks perfect! I wouldn't do it more, because it will dry out your ends and they will lighten overtime anyway. BUT if you did decide to do it, it would be cute too!

Kristin said...

Hollie Ann said...
