Shoot Me! 4 of 52 Challenge

My picture is a couple of days late, but still getting it in!  Grand daughter Amanda came over late this afternoon wanting me to color her hair.  She said she wanted it more natural, and not so dark.  We can do that - She got the color - Medium Golden Brown.  About 6 weeks ago, we had put in a Dark Brown - and it was dark!  As long as we were doing her hair, after I got the color on her and the timer going, I quickly put in Medium Ash Brown in mine.  It will cover up the grey and having a color in, gives my very fine hair some body.

Here is our picture during the process and then after.
How nice for her to have long arms!

I'm standing on my tippy toes and she is kneeling lower! 

I think the color job on both of us turned out fine.  Her friends probably won't even know that she changed her color a little.
It's been fun doing hair stuff with her - one time she was adament that she wanted a lighter color.  It turned a bad color, and it was later evening after the stores were closed, so we couldn't go buy another color.  But lucky enough, I had a darker color in my stash, and we got the job fixed!  That was a terrible experience for her.  She was not happy; and you would have thought that she would have given up on coloring hair.  I've tried to tell her, she is beautiful enough and her hair is too without coloring!  But since she wants me to help her I will - it's good fun times together!

Your granddaughter is beautiful. You are blessed with a very special family. It must be fun sharing girl time together like that. Both of you ended up with a very pretty hair color.
Only 48 more challenge photos to go. Can't wait to see what you will be doing in next week's photo.

It is wonderful that you can do this with her...it would be a disaster if she ever talked me (Mom) into doing it....

All I can say is that you are both BRAVE.
I colored my hair once and only once. Don't think I will do it again!
However both of you gals look wonderful and it sounds like you had a great time.
