winter chocolate {arrojo tribeca}

Dress: Self Portrait (similar style here); Coat: Zimmermann; Shoes: Manolo Blahnik; Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Celine

Those who are close to me, know that I tend to be a creature of habit when it comes to my hair. If I find something that works, I tend to stick with it. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

While that makes it somewhat easy to get ready in the morning (I have my curling routine down to a science), it does mean that I don't experiment all that much with color. Because, in all honesty, it scares me a little. My hair is pretty dark to begin with and naturally dry -- all of which seems to make for a recipe for disaster. On top of that, no matter how many photos I bring in of Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman, I never seem to achieve the same effect (cue heavy, #firstworldproblem sigh here). 

If you recall, this past summer marked my first foray into highlights and while it took a second appointment to tone down the brass factor, I loved how they looked for a hot summer in the city look

And then I got distracted. Life happened. And it all grew out. And the brass factor came back. Strong. So I called Arrojo and squeezed in a little appointment at their new Tribeca location

That's where I met Gina and Kayla. Gina, being the mastermind behind the rich winter chocolate color you see here (she used a glaze -- or in her words, 'lipgloss for your hair.') And Kayla, being the mastermind behind my long overdue trim -- but not chop -- as she was sensitive to the fact I was still growing out my locks from my bob of yesteryear. Both ladies were patient, detail oriented and we all bonded over our shared obsession with "Making a Murderer." 

All in all, I love how the total look came together and feel much more winter ready because of it. Huge thanks to Arrojo for updating this gal's dreary locks -- she'll definitely be back soon.
