Maroon and Violet

blog 3

This beauty wanted some fun for today! Normally I would do a 6/0 and 20 on her roots and some balayage on her ends. Depending on how she wanted it I’d tone her with a 7NB or an 8C. Just depending on what she was feeling that day.

Today, however, I applied 5/75 and 20 vol at her root about an inch out and then I applied 5/75 with 1″ of violet kicker and 30 vol on her mid shaft. Emulsifying it but not bringing it all the way through her ends.

After blowdrying her bangs I realized I didn’t get the pop of color that I wanted.

So I then applied 5RV, a violet kicker, and Processing solution from her roots to her midlengths.
On the ends I used 9B and Crystal Clear for probably 30 seconds to cancel out a little of the gold without making it ashy.

7 Years Married to My Favorite Mexi!

I think about the cocky 19 year old boy I feel in love with. He was confident, loud, opinionated, everything I wasn’t. I fell hard and fast for him and loved everything about him. Before David was even my boyfriend I knew we would be together forever.

Soon after we got married Valentine was born and then we celebrated our 1 year anniversary in January 2010.

In December of 2011 We found out we were pregnant with Valor, celebrated our 2 year anniversary and then had Valor in August of 2011.
I began my own business, Amber Gallegos Salon and we celebrated 3 years together in January of 2012.
In 2013 was our 4 year anniversary.
July 2014 we bought our dream home.
At 5 Years David and I felt very blessed and content. There were no big life events but we were happy and everyone healthy.
The picture on the left is our first date in front of my parents mantel and on the right is us celebrating our 6 year anniversary. We had drinks at Harvest and Dinner at Ricks Chop House.
In 2016 David supported me as I started Skylight Salon and we celebrated 7 years together.
