Hello! Notice Anything Different?

This is a game I play with my boyfriend all the time.  Boys don’t usually notice when I had something done or did my hair / makeup differently.  Can you spot the difference?

Before (The kick-ass lipstick is Joe Fresh Fuchsia, BTW)


I got highlights for the summer! 🙂  I’ve been thinking about getting them ever since the weather got nice here in Toronto.  I showed this photo of the beautiful Rashida Jones (girl crush alert!!!) to my hair stylist:

I love how sun-kissed and natural my highlights turned out.  Oh, and my lovely hair stylist is Melissa on Have Some Tea, Look Fabulous.  She is one of the talented ladies from LIFT Beauty Boutique.  If you’re in Toronto and are looking for a fabulous hair stylist, Melissa is your girl!  Besides hair styling, she is also a talented musician, so she usually has some awesome chill tunes playing while you get your hair done.  Give her a try, and if you do, tell her I sent you! 🙂

  • Rae

    Eee! I love the hilights – absolute perfection for the summer 🙂 And the bangs! I always love your hair with bangs ^.^

    • Thanks, Rae! The bangs are actually the same bangs I had in the Spring… except they are long enough now to push to the side. 🙂

  • You look great!! The highlights are so subtle yet the difference is noticeable between the two photos. Also, bangs TOTALLY suit you. And red lipstick. Okay, I think I just really want your face to be mine right now.

    • Thanks Soha! My hair is actually much lighter than the photo is showing. I almost want to take another photo outside to show how light it is, but still natural. 🙂

  • You look amazing!!! I can’t wait to see it in person tomorrow! 😀

  • love it! i’ve been toying with the idea of getting highlights these past few months… i’m getting tired of the plain old brown/black :p.

    • Oh I know, tell me about it Dani! Although, I really think that there’s nothing more striking than shiny brown/black hair.

  • Awwh your new hair is so soft and pretty :3 and loooove that lipstick too!

  • Love it!!! You look so hot Arianne, even more than usual!!!!

  • Nice! Keep the highlights! It’s much softer and makes you look younger.

    • Thanks Evie! It’ll be on for at least the summer. 🙂

  • I love the highlights! They look really natural and sunkissed!

    • Thanks! I was looking at your old highlights photos for inspiration. 🙂

  • Oooh Arianne…LOVE it! You look all nice and glowy! I’m tempted now but don’t hesitant to do anything to my born again virgin hair. Hehe.

  • You hair looks gorgeous with the highlights, and just generally fabulous and bouncy even before them. So jealous.

  • This looks fantastic on you. I love the sweepy bangs and highlights, so nice.
