Before Alt Summit started I was lucky enough to have my favorite hair stylist in town, Christie Somers. She’s a good friend of mine I met in Manhattan where she worked at a fancy salon on Park Ave, and she now takes clients in both Utah and NYC. She gave my hair a little upgrade color and cut, which it desperately needed. A photographer friend of mine who specializes in headshots, Alisia Packard, tagged along to document the process and make diet coke runs. Afterwards, they even let me raid their closets to pull together a few more outfits for the conference! So, it was a good day for old Liz.
So. Are you ready for the before/after pics?? (drum roll please…)
I have to be honest, I was hesitant to go so blonde, but I trust Christie and she always does amazing work. I’ve really loved the result (it looks and feels really natural!) and it felt great to have a new cut/color before heading to Alt Summit. But what I’m really thinking when I see these images is that sometimes I feel goofy when I have makeup on (she even darkened my brows!). I don’t wear makeup very often besides red lipstick for an evening event. I’m kind of a less is more, natural kind of girl. But looking at these images makes me think maybe I do look more polished with makeup. It also makes me look a little more alive (could also have been the 44 oz of diet coke and the gossip fest??).
Honestly, though. What do you think? Makeup, no makeup? Natural hair, lightened hair?
