Default I dyed my hair! Come see! (pics)

Ok, so the other day I decided that I wanted to dye my hair brown. I called around and found a salon that was willing to do it same day. When I showed up for my appointment, they turned me away because I had curly hair! I wasn't very happy about that. The lady's exact words "We are not trained for curly hair." So then I decided to just do it myself. My first impression was, "I'm going to dye it black tomorrow" ... When I went to work, everyone said they liked it. I haven't decided if I like it yet. I think my curls are in shock at the moment. Check out the pics in my album; under Curly Journey '07.

Thanks!

It looks great! You have great curls and a really good cut.

Are you still in deutschland? Where do you get your hair cut (if so)? Just wonder if it's anywhere I used to go. I had THE BEST stylist while I was there, and can't find anyone that does as well since I left 4 yrs ago.

Your color looks really soft and pretty! I like it! I can't believe the hair salon turned you away because you have curly hair. At least they were honest with you, though, and didn't do something that might have messed up your hair.

Thank you ladies!

Brio, I used Loreal Excellence Creme in 4R.

CurliLocks, Yes, still in Germany. I actually don't have a stylist. I have only been to one salon that actually agreed to do my hair (Sandy's). I wasn't happy with the cut. The cut you see here is from me. If you know of any stylists in the Kaiserslautern area or Rhineland Pfalz, please PM me. Actually I am even willing to go out farther than that (Maybe Frankfurt?).

Awesome!! It looks so shiny. It won't take long before you get use to it.
It only took me a few days. Everytime I woke up and saw myself in the mirror, I had forgotten that I had dyed my hair.
You did a nice job!

Thank you laides, for all of your very nice comments. I think I am leaning towards keeping this color for a little while longer. The color is growing on me now. Maybe I was just in shock the first few days.
