Review: The Powder Room

IMG_8604

Last Saturday, these lovely ladies at The Powder Room in Silver Lake transformed my boring hair into the perfect shade of lilac. The problem was the shade was TOO perfect, that when I washed it for the first time, it started bleeding purple. I know this is normal anytime you dye your hair but I didn’t want my hair to turn even lighter that it might bring out the yellow tones of the bleach when it fades in a few weeks. I called Sally and Jaimie, told them my concern and Sally re-dyed my hair into an even more gorgeous, brighter shade of purple (see before and after).

before and after

I don’t usually style my hair. I just blow dry it after every wash and that’s pretty much it. Sometimes I curl the ends, but the most I do with it is put it up in a nice bun. Sally cut my hair and gave me fine layers that bring out the purple highlights while still making the overall look manageable.

My hair finally found home in Sally’s hands :) I won’t let anyone touch my hair anymore – great vibe, great people passionate about what they do. The Powder Room listens to your every concern and they won’t let you leave their chairs until you are extremely satisfied with how you look and how you feel.

Naturally my hair needed its debut – off to West Hollywood with Michael and James!

I finally did it. My hair is now 50 shades of purple and I love it!!! Since I already bleached my hair, I think I will stay with light shades for now.

For the past week, Los Angeles has been stuck with this unbearable heat. This romper is pppppppeeeeeeerfect for mindless dressing during hot summer days (yes in LA, October is warmer than June or July). The print reminds me of the dresses my mom would make me wear in the 90’s to compensate for my boyish hair cut. Floral prints tend to be stuck for spring and summer only but you can make this work for fall with the right accessories. You can wear this with a pair of grey over the knee socks, boots, and a cable knit cardigan for colder weather and it still wouldn’t look out of place.
