30th Birthday Countdown: Makeover Reveal

Did y'all see the Super Bowl last night? The most entertaining thing about it was Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The game was a total blowout. I'm not a Broncos or Seahawks fan but I at least wanted to see a good game. Didn't happen.


In much bigger and voluminous news. I had my hair appointment on Saturday. Remember the Vinuss hair I told you about a couple weeks ago? Well I finally got it installed. I couldn't be happier with the results.

Here is a selfie I took during the process.

And a close up of the ends that I showed you on Instagram…I am in love with the ombre color my stylist created for me.

A view from the back. Again. The color is exactly what I wanted. I love it when a plan comes together...

Ombre Hair color sew-in

And here is a screen shot of all the different angels that I kind of stole from the instagram account of my stylist… Hope she doesn't mind!

If you want to see some hair get slayed and laid follow my girl Yama on IG here...

Saturday night before bed I rolled the hair on flexi rods. Below are the results. It was super curly and my hair had so much volume the next morning. Dare I say it… I was gone with the wind fabulous, LOL! Literally. Cause it was pretty windy here on Sunday...

Getting my hair done made me that much more excited for our trip and my birthday. I feel like a new woman. I probably look like one too. My hair appointment went smoothly. Yama is my stylist here in San Antonio. If you are in this area I would suggest calling her for your weave install. She has great customer service and is so polite. I emailed and texted her a bunch and she always responded in a timely manner. Very professional. Yama can be reached on her Style Seat site. I can't say enough about my experience. Not only did I get a new look but I also got some girl talk in too. Great way to spend my afternoon.

As for the hair, I'll be doing a video review as well but let me just say first impressions are everything and so far I am impressed. This Peruvian hair is so full and pretty. I have three bundles installed and it doesn't feel heavy at all. Even after coloring my hair is still super soft and tangle free. It was pretty windy on Sunday and I still didn't experience any tangles or ratchet hair behavior. Love. Love. Love.

So what do you think of my new look? Am I ready for my Flirty30 and trip to Vegas?
