Well as you can see I had my appointment yesterday. I left my house at 12:55pm my appointment was for 1:00pm. I just had to walk around the block to Shellina's house. She was on her front porch having a smoke. I walked up to her and sat next to her while she finished. We talked about the unusually warm weather 20 Celsius in Nov. she mentioned how excited she was for the wetset she had really enjoyed it last time. She finished and got up I saw she smoked VS120's she had the pack next to her.
We went inside and down to the basement talking about the electricity problem she had. I sat in the chair and she brought out the colour charts and we discussed what I wanted to do. I wanted to go a dark red almost wine colour with copper highlights. So we agreed on the colour and got to work. She used the same black cape as last time and a red towel. I brought out my tablet to set it up when Shellina saw that she told me no that she didn't want to be it the video so I had to wait until she finished and left. She mixed up the colour and set to work because of the length of my hair it took her nearly 15 minutes to apply the colour. I tell you I love the feeling and the weight of the colour being applied to my hair it is my favorite part. She set the timer for 55 minutes and left me to process.
I took some photos and 360 videos. Then I started nosing around opening drawers, smelling things and playing with things. I quickly found her roller bag and was disappointed to find that the rollers she was planning to use were not the ones I wanted. I looked for the ones I wanted magnetic rollers and although I found some there was not enough to do my hair and they were different sizes and colours. I wanted to cancel the set right then but she had clearly made an effort and I did not want to disappoint her so I hoped she had maybe another bag upstairs with the right rollers.
The timer beeped and Shellina came down and washed me she said the colour came out great and it would look even better with the highlights. She put me under the dryer for 15 minutes to dry my hair for the cap and told me to run my fingers through my hair it would help dry it faster and is a great way to get extra body. I did that and decided not to take any photos of video's to not spoil the surprise of my finished colour.
She came back down and got the plastic cap on me and tied it and set to work. Because my hair was like silk it was easy to pull through and did not hurt me. She didn't pull too much of the sides or back since I was going short and she didn't want me to have dots in the back of my hair. She mixed up the colour and applied and then set timer for 10 minutes leaving me to process. More photos and videos followed after 10 minutes she came back down and saw that there had been no change and added a plastic bag and put me under the dryer for 15 minutes. I took some more photos and videos. She came back down checked and said I needed another 10 minutes. After that the dryer switched off and sat in the chair waiting for her to come back.
She pulled off the cap and let me have a look to see the contrast of the highlights and my hair it looked blonde and I got a bit nervous. She finished washing me and back in the chair I went. She grabbed the bag of rollers that I had looked at earlier and showed me them asking if this was ok. I lied and said yes. She applied the setting lotion to my hair and then sectioned it off and began setting it. She was fast and methodical all muscle memory probably could set me blindfolded. She finished and I got a few pictures and video before she put the net on and put me under the dryer for 45 minutes. I took some more photos and videos and then decided to just sit back relax and have a nap enveloped by the warmness of the dryer.
She came back down just as the dryer cooled down and I sat in the chair she took off the net and began taking out the rollers. She asked me what kind of style I wanted and I told her that I would leave that up to her and too have fun. 10 or so minutes of backcombing and teasing later I had what you see there. I took some more photos and video and then she told me that she wanted to try something a little different so she started arrange the part in my hair back and gave me the final style.
With my fun over she put me back in the basin combed out the style then wet my hair and washed it with conditioner. Apparently washing freshly coloured hair with shampoo too many times is bad for the hair. She then cut my hair and styled it. I paid and left feeling both happy and disappointed. I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as I did experiencing it.
