I Have the Messy Updo Down

This was done blindly in 60 seconds, 1 tiny clip and 4 bobby-pins.

Guess which hairstyle is about to come into vogue…
the messy updo BOOM
I’ll be accidentally in fashion

The blonde’s looking good these days eh (remember the urine-head times? Those were dark times)

Here’s Niki and I hard at work on ‘Illusion Head’ – a healthy, bright blonde approach Niki dreamed up.

Illusion Head – looks like bright blond hair,
but it’s actually a small amount of cleverly-placed highlights,

so the hair stays healthy

I’m oversimplyfying it, but look back on photos from the last couple months, when we really started to make progress.

My New Haircut

We were on fire with jokes; it’d been months since we saw one other, there was snorting.  Iceland.

We’ve gotta be one of the oldest hairstylist/blogger duos by now, wait…. it was February 2008 we shook hands, hey Brennen that’s 5 years now NICE.

I’ll leave you with our first video, filmed at the beginning in ’08…… here:

(haven’t watched this in years and woah, this nonsense has been viewed almost 10,000 times)

These drawings are giant and hanging in the studio.

Fellow hairstylist Justin drew them, beautiful eh.

Go too.

Thanks for all the years of the best blonde, Brennen xo

(re: the title of this post – Remember that video?  It was one of the first viral videos; “Not now, Chief”)


Haircut Day

I checked in on Foursquare, and become Mayor?!  I’ve never been a Mayor before.

I rarely play Foursquare, 91 checkins since 2009, here’s my history.

Should I dye it all dark brown?

Thanks for 4 years of amazing hair, Brennen XO

Like we talked about, we’re due for another video.

Here’s our last one, from 2008.  Almost at 10,000 views :D

Go too.

Bye Bye Bright Blonde

I’ve been platinum blonde since 2007. Now my hair is breaking off.

Brennen has done my hair for 5 years.  Here’s one of our first videos, from 2008.

It was tough to find someone during my Avoiding Winter 2012 Tour, so when in a large city I’d search out the best L’Oreal salon.  What that proved was there are no Brennens.

Brennen I don’t think it’s working, my scalp isn’t burning.

Isn’t it funny though, I’m sad over a hair colour.  And I’m not even that fashion-y; how many times have you seen me in jeans and a hat? Then I hear my sensible self: no one is shooting at you, Keri, it’s just hair.

But, BUT… it kind of is a big deal! Because I no longer have a backlog of photos of me I can use. Think about that; I just made my job harder, and I had no choice.

All right, whining done, let’s make a photo collage.

I have done this one million times since 2007, and this is a first.

It’ll fade and brighten up quite blonde again, but only with my most disliked expression: it takes time.

I suppose it’s fitting, I kind of am in ‘Round 3’ of living my life online…

  1. – The Canadian Explorer
  2. – KeriBlog
  3. – security and cars and not sure, this round just started

Kay bye now, TTYL, happy Thursday night, best night of the week!
