I really hate myself for not blogging this week but the only excuse I can really use is: life haha. I promise I'm going to update frequently again so just bear with me. I have been updating my Instagram (@ruyakiraccc) of course so feel free to follow me on there just in case you're dying to know what I'm doing. Shameless plug haha.
In the meantime, I noticed that I was seriously in need of a good hair cut and color so I took a chance and headed to a new salon. I swear I've tried every single salon in Rochester and nothing has really "wow'ed" me. It's like I like my hair for a few days but then get sick of it after a while. Maybe it's just boredom? I don't know, but I was definitely in the mood for something summery in order to get me through this awful winter we're having aka a big snow storm hitting Rochester and the city ended up going viral on social media haha.
Anyways, I asked my hairstylist for lighter hair that would suite my skin tone, lots of face-framing highlights, and to style it in beach waves. This was my first time using Olaplex which is a great alternative to bleach and less harsh on the hair. I'm obsessed with the results and I definitely think Olaplex makes a huge difference when it comes to going lighter. Of course, my hair was pretty light at the ends before but this just gave it an all-over lighter effect without the damage. I highly recommend trying Olaplex despite most salons charging extra for it! Trust me, going lighter with bleach just isn't worth it.
Lastly, sorry for the iPhone quality pictures. My camera battery was dead and I really wanted to get this post out as quickly as possible. Normally, I wouldn't put selfies on my blog but I know people seem to like my hair posts (my bronde one is one of my most popular blog posts of all time, crazy!) so I thought it would get the job done.
Thanks for reading,
