so....the hair is not as platinum blond as i desired. it is more of a muddy, boring, frumpy, lighter version of the strawberry blond. i guess this is part of the process. she couldn't bleach all my hair or it would all fall off. hmpff. as it is i had to cut off about 2-3 inches of damage. arg. don't be a hair masochist like me. it is annoying and expensive.
i think i will wear a hat for the next month.
