iBob NOW!

iBob NOW!

The Italian Hair Dye made my hair extra shiny! :D
CANNOT wait to see it in the lightBlue Black Bob

I got my hair cut by Kevin, a successful hair stylist in Newport & Long Beach. He's super cool. He had his assistant run over to the bar and bring us back a pitcher of beer! We stayed there for 5 hours~ haha I got a bob & dye.

He didn't charge me for my haircut because he completely forgot I had an appointment in Newport! His salon there was closed when we got there so we drove 20 minutes to his Long Beach salon. $45 haircut value! I paid $70 for an Italian hair dye : blue black (it doesn't fade!)
He gave me GHD hair products ($5 each) at cost, and a free Pureology hair conditioner. He's so sweet!

His friend had a Ferarri..basically his network is pretty successful! I'm going to ask him to hook me up with a GHD straightener soon. He was going to give me a Japanese Hair Straitening for $50 originally $300, but I'm leaving Friday, but he's going to Vegas for a hair show. :( But I'll definitely be coming back to him my next time in CA. I'm also going Vegas next week! 3 nights, baby!! I haven't seen my boyfriend in 2 months ~! It's going to be F-U-N. We're gamblers & I'm a drinker!!

Kevin's Long Beach Salon, his walls were pretty cool ~ graffiti paint style
He built the light fixture himself
His Newport salon costs double since his rent is double there and it caters to the snobby.
His words!
I look like I'm 14 haha

My cousin and I haven't seen each other in 2 years..look! Randomly matching =P
Pizza & Beer & Cappucino blend lol
