I don't wear makeup. While I'm comfortable with my make-up-less face, the one small complaint that I do have about it is that I seem to have no eyebrows or eyelashes. This is one of the curses of the natural blonde. A few months before I got married, I decided that I wanted to have eyebrows in my wedding photos, and one of my friends told me that I HAD to get my eyebrows tinted. I initially laughed at the suggestion. I've never even dyed my hair, so it seemed like quite a big leap for me. But I decided to at least give it a shot.

I work at Vain, one of Seattle's most beloved salons. I have always wanted to color someone's pit hair. I have actually done it once, but It was a late night with too much wine and without the proper tools available. I asked my co-worker Rain if she would be down to let me dye her pit hair blue to match her hair color and she agreed, heartily. (OR should I say pitily.) We both knew that we were jumping into uncharted territory, but we felt that Vain was just the place to pioneer some pit color. Here is how it went…
I haven't shaved or waxed my armpits in five years. And, until recently, I hadn't given it all that much conscious thought, beyond the dull general awareness that I feel about my pit hair when I'm in certain settings.

oVertone was created by Maegan and Liora, who put their brightly-colored heads together and concocted a product that both of them had always wanted — a conditioner that would heal hair between dye jobs and keep it looking as bright on day 60 as it did on day one. As they put it, "We want to be bold, AND look the part 24/7, no matter how long ago our last salon trip happened."
Are you one of the many Homies who read "why I decided to stop shampooing my hair" and though "holy shit! I want to do that, but don't know how to start"? Well, get ready to start… How-to Hair Girl has created a DIY hair care kit based on the ShamPHree (or no-poo) method, and now it's for sale!
Since the wedding, we have purchased a house and adopted a couple of cats. My son is going into second grade. I'm currently pursuing Redken color certification and a cosmetology instructor's license. Nick left the university he used to work for and is currently working for a marketing firm. We are going into our third year as Old Marrieds, but we've been together for seven years total.
If I dress in a way that I know attracts a certain kind of attention, is it fair for me to get impatient when someone is curious about it?
