BAM!!! It's Red Hair!!

Today I woke up really excited to get my hair done! It's been months since I had highlights done in an effort to save some money. My hair has gone to all one color & very dull/flat looking. I was also so done with having no bangs. I have a little worry line that seems to get worse with each passing deployment that bangs just needed to cover up!The husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday next week & I promptly made my hair appointment!!
I went a much darker shade of red then I have ever gone before. His one request was no more blonde for awhile. I was born with carrot orange hair way back in the day. Through out the years it lightened to strawberry /blonde. As I got older I added a lot of different shades of blonde highlights. But my hubby loves it redder. So I found a pretty picture in a magazine & took to my stylist. We spent about 10 minutes discussing the options & went with an all over darker red & very subtle soft blonde low lights for contrast. 
I LOVE IT!!! I was not so sure but now I  really like it. The bangs hide the worry line that is sure to get deeper in the upcoming months. I think my husband will be surprised when I go pick him up later this week. I will have to get back with everyone & let you all know his reaction. Below is a before & after picture- if you don't like it as much that is fine. But don't crush my Happy Moment please- I am finally relaxed , happy & smiling for the first time in a few weeks- so Let me ENJOY- Thanks....
