One year ago (March 2011) Jenny went red (not the red bass she’s holding, her hair). But before this could happen, there was some work to be done.
You can get more information on the intricate details, along with numerous other hair tips on Jenny’s website (Crime of Fashion Hair and Makeup) but I’ll briefly describe this to the best of my abilities. If you have questions about how/why it works the way it does, you can leave a comment below.
Hopefully Jenny will forgive me for revealing this in public, but prior to her attending the Gene Juarez Academy for cosmetology, she had previously been using ‘box-hair-color‘ (the icky stuff you buy at the store). Most people don’t realize how damaging it is to your hair, and how difficult it makes things when you try to change color.
Jenny spent almost all day at the salon, in hopes of coming out with vibrant red hair. I dropped her off, and about 6 hours later, she came out with dark hair, and was less than pleased.
We had planned to do a shoot that day, because her hair would have been super vibrant, as the color would be completely fresh. The shoot (with red hair) was off, and we went home a little deflated.
Not being the type to let it keep us down, we decided to do a shoot at home.
We shot everything with only one light. I think it turned out great. But I’m biased, because my girl is beautiful no matter what.
A week later, she was able to go back and get the red hair that we had planned on.
Next week (after we finish our taxes), I’ll post The Transformation – Part 2, and you can see the red hair. Plus a few more of this series I didn’t have time to add into this post (we shot a few more silly pictures, too).
