Color Wheel


This morning’s agenda was to have a blog entry about my workshop a couple of days ago. But first I planned to color my hair. I do this 2/3 times a year, when I get bored looking at the gray. I have a favorite brand and color.  I went shopping a couple of weeks ago and the store was out of my brand color, oh well I did have a coupon for another brand. I choose my color and saved $2.00. I bet you can see where this is going already.

This morning I did the deed. Combed thru the wet hair and decided to let it air dry a bit and clean the kitchen or throw a load of laundry in the wash.  At noon I thought I better go in and curl my hair. I screamed when I looked in the mirror. Orange! Granted it wasn’t carrot orange but definitely orange tones. I have fair skin and yellows & oranges make me look like I have jaundice.

I made a quick phone call to my local salon which lucky for me she had an opening in the afternoon. She did her magic and it is toned down and mellowed. It fact my husband rather likes the results.

The lesson here- if you know something works stick with it. In quilting a little yellow or arrange will show up very well. Use it sparely. Last, use a color wheel to determine what colors will complement each other and not clash.  Oh, and sometimes it pays to buy the best rather than trying to save a dollar.

No pictures for this entry.   The workshop entry will be written later this weekend.
