It's Your Lucky Day

Thursday, February 02, 2006 | 0 Comments

I would never have posted a good clear picture of myself for fear of being found out by people I know - but I can not resist a before and after of my 10,000th visitor treat to myself. I'm not sure how long I will keep these pictures on my blog so enjoy them while you can.

The before is the first picture and the after is second.

The force was with me on this decision. The salon was having a special on highlights and cuts - EXACTLY WHAT I WAS GOING FOR!! I saved quite a bit of money. WhooHoo!

The copper color makes my eyes turn green. I have eyes that change colors. They go from light blue, to green-blue, to green, to shades of grey, to very occassionally almost brown. It depends on my mood, how I'm feeling physically, or what I'm wearing.

Picking the colors was a little nerve racking. After I picked them and she went in the back to mix them, I was overcome with panic at having made the wrong choice. But I told myself that it was just hair and it would be fine.

The girl who did my hair had been a little hesitant about the colors too, but when we both saw how they came out - we were both diggin' it!

As promised, here's a better picture of

The colors look amazing!! It makes me want to color my hair again! :)

Blogger Sylvana said...

PastaMasta, na! But that would be quite a feat, and compliment!

Heather, this isn't even a very good shot of the colors. I should have put a different one in. Maybe I'll do that later when I get home tonight.
The colors sure do brighten my face.

What I'm about to say I mean with every ounce of respect & sincerity.

You kind of resemble Kirsten Dunst. I think it's the eyes, but there's something there that reminds me of Kirsten.

Once again, to some people, that may not seem such a compliment, but I'm a fan of Kirsten's looks, so consider it a major compliment.

Blogger Sylvana said...

Pink Lady, thank you!

Tayster, ha! That is so funny that you say that because A LOT of people have told me that! In fact, I was stopped at a bar once by a couple of women who thought I might be her. When I was overseas, SSB watched Kirsten Dunst movies to get his Sy fix ;)
I take it as a compliment. I like her too. She and I are very similar in our mannerisms and attitudes too (except I'm far more of a spitfire than she is).

That's a relief. I once told a girl that she looked like Steven Seagal and she didn't see it as the compliment that I meant it to be.

Wow, hot stuff! I understand the fear of posting a clear picture of yourself, but showing of the new hair is well worth it.

Also, because I didn't comment on the last post: a very hearty congratulations on your 10,000th visitor!

That SSB is one lucky guy. I think the next stop is the March issue of Vogue then some runway work for the Spring lines in NY. Just remember us blog friends when you're hanging out with Kate Moss.

Blogger Sylvana said...

Tayster, yeah, don't ever say that I look like Steven Seagal.

The Doc, thanks! On both accounts, or is it all three accounts?

ESC, well...uh...::blush::...:D

DrMax, he knows! HE KNOWS! ;)
And I'm just as lucky to have him.

Nice highlights, did you go where I got mine done? That's so funny that you were once again compaired to Kirsten, I just watched Spidermand and thought "yeah she certainly does look a lot like her!". And you even managed a sultry smile... awh how the hearts will melt! :)

No need for comment as boggers explain
But where is the verse of a haunting refrain
Or an Irish verse for a Scott’s special time
I’ll make the fist start so please add your fresh line

Hey folks Sylvana's hair is her new coloured affair
Her eyes are the hue that reflects the best view
Bloggers do stair at her lovely long hair
For the force is a force for her new hair affair

I don't see a difference. Is there a difference?

Derek, you really know how to talk to a girl.

Blogger Elizabeth said...

Gorgeous. Though I cannot imagine why you don't have a big smile as in your little picture. Too much for your readers, I suppose. The highlights look really natural.

Blogger Sylvana said...

Elizabeth, my big smile pictures only turn out nice if they are completely candid or I am drinking/drunk.

Cookie Christine, I've had bad highlights before and paid a pretty penny to get them. These highlights were cheap but also beautiful! Fantastic Sam's. That's where my hair done.

LBB, thanks!

Indiaiynke, Blogger is having "issues". I did a new post before I left for the weekend. It showed up and then Blogger ate it. Completely gone now. Not even in my archives. Wendy A left a message too, and Blogger ate that too! Her comment was sent to my email, though, so at least I have that. But YOURS WAS NOT!!

So weird and frustrating!
But thanks for your comment!

February 05, 2006 6:34 PM

Blogger Sylvana said...

DAMN IT!! Now it just ate your comment!!

GRrrr! This is making me angry!!

Hopefully they have everything worked out now. Too frustrating!

Wendy A wrote on Sat, 4 Feb 2006 02:15:30 -0800 (PST): Much more sophisicated. Looks lovely! I love trying on different colors.

Thanks Wendy A! Now I hope Blogger will quit being a bitch!

Blogger Shamus O'Drunkahan said...

I applaud your bravery (publishing your pics). You have SSB to fend off the stalkers anyways. I mean, he has to earn his keep somehow.

You look a bit different from the "About Me" picture, but then again, I look a bit different from mine as well. S'all good.

February 05, 2006 7:37 PM

Blogger Sylvana said...

Shamus, he earns his keep by making me laugh and loving my difficult self.

My "About Me" pic is a 6 year old fuzzy picture of me at a bar party. Hence the humungous smile.

I was drinking.

Just a little ;D

The hair color REALLY suits you!! :)

Sylvana, I love your highlights and you are such a beauty and possess such a kind face. You should be a model for your hair-salon!!

Blogger Sylvana said...

Galatea, thanks. During the winter my hair gets kinda blah. If I don't do something with it people start asking me if I feel OK.

Astrid, THANKS! You are very beautiful and kind looking yourself! I did model once for a cosmotology school. It was a lot of fun!

Woot, Woot!! I like your hair, the highlights work so well with your face! Lovely pictures, dear.

Your highlights are awesome! My hairdresser loves to experiment. They tease me at work that every time I go to the salon, I come out blonder! But it is a lot of fun. Like you said, it's just hair.

Nice highlights! Great pics.

Sandy, thanks. I have found that I tend to take better pictures of myself than other people take of me.
