Huge Mistake & View of My Kitchen Table

If you were hanging out with me in my kitchen this morning, this is what you'd see:
A vast array of hair lightening and toning tubes and packets.

Let me start of by saying, life is full of mistakes. Anyone who thinks they live a mistake-free life, is living in Crazyville, because we all make mistakes, most usually on a daily or hourly basis. I'm cool with it. I've come to embrace each mistake, because some of my mistakes have actually been the very reason that because of those mistakes, I went a different route, had to fix or change something, and because of it, the result was something awesome!

Well, here is mistake of the day #1
My hair: pardon the poopy picture, but that's what you get when you are trying to take a selfie of the back of your head.
 I could try to tell you this is some cutting edge, new hair style, maybe call it the "HACK-CHOP", but it's not. This is what happens when you are in a hurry, and think you don't need a mirror and can chop the back of your hair, purely by feel, in about 2 minutes before you are racing out the door! It had, BAD IDEA, all over it before I even grabbed my shears. I know better, but I told that "you know better voice", to pipe down...and all because I did, this is what the back of my head looks like!

SIDE NOTE: I've been cutting my own hair for years, and every short cut I've had, I carved and sliced myself about 95% of the time.  I've cut myself the best side swept bangs I've ever had! I've given myself most ALL of my favorite haircuts, except for this bomb of a hair attempt!

*Don't ever cut your hair without a mirror. (I already knew that one too!)
*Don't ever cut your hair when you have only 2 minutes to do it before you need to leave the house.

Well, yours truly, made an appt to get the back of my hair fixed this afternoon. I have no idea what my hair will look like or how short it will be, but I'll show ya later! I get super nervous going to  anyone to cut my hair, because I'd rather mess up my own hair myself! ha ha
So before I head out with a phone full of pictures I can show the hairstylist, in hopes of turning this "mistake" into a "miss-awesome-hair-do"...I needed to get my roots in check. So, that's why I'm typing this with toner on my hair, and this is perfect timing because it's just about time to rinse this off!

I will never make a tutorial for this hair-catastrophe, but I will show you the after later...I hope it look good! Especially since I will be going to co-host, Battle Of The Strands, a huge hair and make-up competion this weekend in Vegas! If you're going, you can see my new and hopefully awesome hair do! ha ha ha

Huge hugs and if you've made a mistake, from hair cut to something bigger, just know that's life, we all make mistakes. We learn from our mistakes, we get stronger from our mistakes, and sometime because of those mistakes, we are redirected to a path  or re-doing something that's even better than if we did it all right from the get go!

Huge hugs and so much love from me, your homegirl, Kandee

And if you want to see that awesome video on How To Cut Side Swept Bangs- this is easy, especially since you see the front of your hair (just look into the mirror, unlike I did with this hair mess):
