Guys, I have to say I am absolutely in love with my new hair! I went yesterday armed with photos of celebrities (mostly Fearne Cotton) and while I clearly still look nothing like the beautiful ladies I was admiring, I absolutely love what the colourist did. Basically, I had a full head of highlights a few months ago, and while I liked them a lot, the regrowth was just such a nightmare even though my natural colour was only a shade or so darker. To get technical on you, my natural colour is an 8, so my hairdresser took me a shade darker to a 7, so a dark blonde. She left some of the highlights at the end to create a subtle ombre effect and also put in some strawberry blonde/reddy toned lowlights which are a lovely addition. I don't know if other people are going to notice and love the difference like I do, but this is the darkest my hair has ever been and I guess I'm just thrilled that I didn't leave the hairdressers crying!
I'm thinking that I could maintain this colour a bit cheaper with a home dye kit. I never wanted to use them to go lighter but I'm comfortable doing it if I'm going darker. Any reccomendations because I have literally never dyed my own hair? Sorry for such a mememe and my beautiful hair post but I thought I'd share for anyone else having colour dilemmas like I was just a few days ago! I have an outfit post coming up tomorrow and am also home then too, so expect to see and hear more of me!
