Blonde Ambition

I decided to try something a little different and go BLONDE! I didn't want to look too extreme, so I bought Havanna hair in Amber (similar to #30), Mimosa (similar to #27), and Chestnut Black (similar to #1B). If you don't know what these colors mean, see the hair chart below.

According to the website, Havanna Hair is "a soft, yet highly textured man made hair fiber that is created to blend well with a broad range of natural hair textures." I've used this hair before, and I love it. It's different than Marley hair in that it is thicker, shorter, and results in plumper twists.

I anticipated using mostly a blend of 1B and #30, but the #30 was so beautiful that I kept reaching for it when I was installing these. I used the black here and there, but mostly used #30 throughout and used #27 to frame my face. I really love the result... It's actually more of a copper, than a blonde, and I think it goes pretty well with my skin tone.

My only beef with this style is that the hair is so light and my roots are so dark, so it's very easy to tell that this is not my hair. When I would wear black Havanna twists or Marley twists, people thought it was my hair all the time. On a related note(?), I was in New York this past weekend with this hairstyle and at least three people came up to me, told me they loved my hair, then asked if I was a hair stylist.

Either way, I'm glad I tried something new and different! Would you ever go blonde?
