As hairdressers, you're innately creative, artistic people--and no doubt you experimented with different hair styles, cuts and color, especially as a young adult.
But do you remember the first time you colored your hair? Did you have your parents' permission in advance? If not, how mad was your mother when she first laid eyes on you? Or, was it your cosmetologist parent who actually was the one who colored your hair?
I'll never forget my first experience--I was 13 and it was with Sun In, and Dad was completely oblivious! Had he noticed, of course he would have said something. But, he didn't say a peep. So, I got the brilliant idea to use more of it, and more of it, and more of it. Within a few weeks, I was an all-over brassy brunette. It was not a good look.
The first time you colored your hair, did you have permission from your parents?
Katerina Tsikoudakis I lied to my hair stylist that my parents said it was ok.... I came home with blonde highlights... My parents wanted to murder me! And now I am a hair stylist, and they really don't care what colors I do anymore. Finally. Took about 5 years.
Erica Prisby Sun in on dark brown hair= self taught lesson and fail
Lindsey Stevens My mother almost killed me because I dyed it copper red in 9th grade. She made me dye right over it : (
Kristin Davis I was in 7th grade and my mom did a home highlighting kit.... Yeah not good.
Jameson Thomas My mom was a hair stylist, best believe she did it first and then taught me how she did it.
Emily Rouse Mom let me get highlights and then the flood gates opened. Mohawks, pink, shaved, and glued back on...
Jenny Garcia LOL. NOOOO... She yelled at me and didn’t speak to me until the next day.
Bobbie Gallant-Schlitz Kool-aid does not come out of blonde hair... I was five. I was born to be a hair designer. Lots of trouble.
Serena Bendycki Well I had my Dad’s permission, but my mom was freakin! We went to the local grocery store to "enhance" my blonde. We got a box of bottle bleach. We enhanced my blonde alright and so my hair journey began.
Kelly Hirz LOL Im a natural level 3 and the summer after my Sophmore year I thought it would be a great idea to put "sun in" in my hair while laying in the sun. Well, I returned my Junior year a redhead! I grew up to be a hairdresser..I NOW know the proper way to become a blonde
