INOA Revolutionary Red Hair Transformation by L'Oreal Professional Canada (Contest Entry)

Soo I'm about a week late with this post...L'Oreal and Matchstick hooked me up with an AMAZING hair stylist Manny from Flaunt Boutique. I got my hair done red!! On top of that I got myself some new crazy bangs. We used the new L'oreal INOA Hair Colour. I was such a bad blogger I didn't even take any pics, actually I lost my new camera...hopefully I find it soon. I didn't tell you guys this but Thanksgiving weekend I chopped off my butt length hair to right below my shoulders! I lovee long hair but it was sooo dead...I was contacted well before I cut off my hair but I gave up after weeks and weeks went by with no reply from a stylist. When I finally got the call I was more than ready to go red! I got the full treatment; haircut, coloured,, wardrobe, and photographer! This is for a contest on Facebook so I would really appreciate all your help! There are entries from 2 months ago so we are behind big time and need to catch up!
Day 1:
I got my hair coloured. I believe Manny used about 3-4 shades. Mainly the base was the darkest red and I also have some copper highlights.
Day 2:
We were praciting for the photoshoot. Manny originally wanted to do a fingerwave style. After a few shots he decided a different look would suit me better - and I totally agreed! I have shots of the finished style but I turned out really bad in them so sorry! But here is the pin curl process:

Day 3:
Manny cut my bangs, I always had side swept bangs but now they were full straight bangs! How Asian right? Only thing I worry about it now I can't leave my hair wavy since they would look weird with full bang. I also got a few face framing layers. I got my makeup done and then we were off to the photoshoot.
Here's my before and after:

My Professional After Shot:
You guys will have to go to Facebook to check it out!!! Hehe! I know I have naturally full lips but when I saw it the first time I was like WHOAA in the pic! It could definitely be in a lip plumping ad lol

Awww I missed out on voting for you! I miss your blog post updates too Julie! Ahhh I wish I had Facebook so I could have viewed your "after picture" as the red hair colour looks so vibrant on you. You're very lucky to have been chosen for this hair transformation - and that's sooo cool you opted for such a different look in terms of colour and especially length
