My Mis-Adventures in Beauty

Even though I was one of the first to receive a sample of Clairol's Nice 'n Easy Foam Hair Color, I had yet to try it until the other night. Since I was coloring my hair with a new hair color that I had never tried before, I thought it would be a good time to do a full body wax and a glycolic peel. Doesn't that sound convenient? Why not go for the full body makeover, right?! WRONG!

I started with the hair color. See my roots below. They weren't looking so hot. Can you pick out the gray hairs sticking out of here and there? Ick!

Then, I applied the color as directed. It was a foam and I wasn't so sure about it at first. Plus, it smelled AWFUL (just a word to the wise). You are supposed to squirt it out onto your gloved hand and then lather it into your roots like a shampoo.

I did that and then broke out the wax...

Nad's had sent me over a truckload of wax products to try...I love Nad's! So I busted my stash out and went to town. *Disclaimer: I am one hairy girl, so my truckload supply of Nad's is almost completely gone after only a couple body waxes.

I realized after waxing my underarms and first leg that I had forgot to set the timer for my hair...ugh!
So after about twenty minutes, I decided it was time to pull the color through my ends to refresh my faded hair hue. After that, I realized I had color spots that were darkening by the minute all over my face, shoulders, arms and wrists...awesome. So, I tried to scrub those out and quickly realized my wax was cooling...

So I quickly applied and scrubbed my glycolic peel onto my face and decollate. Then finished waxing my other leg.

I jumped in the shower and all that work payed off because you can see how I look now below....

I kid, of course, but my hair color did turn out fab (and close to Kim's shade) and my legs are nice and smooth and my skin is glowing.

So, although I would not recommend trying to give yourself a complete overhaul in the time it takes to watch an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I would recommend using all the products I did to beautify yourself!
