White trash ... with an emphasis on white

So I call my hair salon first thing this morning in a desperate attempt to make an appointment before the big game this weekend. My sweet stylist is always super accommodating and said that she could fit me in tomorrow at lunch. Perfect! I told her I needed a highlight and a trim, we confirmed, and right before we hung up she said .... "uh, I was thinking maybe we could put some dark highlights in since fall is coming up" and as soon as I heard the word "dark" I was thinking in my head .... uh, HELL TO THE NO! She must have sensed the awkward pause because she then said, "or we could just tone down the blonde so it isn't so (pause) white". Of course since I am a huge sissy I said, "yeah we can do that". When really in my head I am screaming ..... DO NOT TOUCH MY WHITE HAIR!!! I LIKE IT!!!! I LIKE MY WHITE HAIR!!!!!! (all in one breath)

And truth be told it is not white. You can see it in an earlier post. It has taken me a long time to find a color I like and we are not messing it up, not this time, no sir-e. I have experimented with brown, I gave it a fair shot, and I have one word: DIE-skusting!

So, this is the question. How do you tell someone that you enjoy your white trash blonde hair without sounding like white trash? Tricky. But I will figure it out by tomorrow at noon.

I would just tell her that you are satisfyed with the color for now, and you would just like it touched up.

I don't color/highlight my hair, but I think it would be best to just be honest.

I am SO not the person to ask! I had my hightlights touched up last week and was really not happy with the way my hair turned out. She must have done something different with the color, but they just aren't right! Anyway, I'm too much of a sissy to call her and tell her I'd like them re-done. Nope, I'll just wait and pay to have them done again in 6 weeks. UGH!

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! Your blog is cute too! Welcome to the blogging world : )

White trash hair is cracking me up. I just got my highlights done today and I feel like they are too light. Usually after about a week, it seems like mine fade a little, so hopefully that will happen this time too.

Awe LL I love your white trash hair! You just tell her. It's your hard earned money & she gets paid to do what you want her to do not what she suggests!

Been there...done that! Too funny!
I am now back to my natural color and somebody slap me if I say I want highlights again! They are addicting once you start...!
