I seem to have been MIA from this place for a little while. Sorry about that! A new job equals being busy and very tired so I haven't had much energy for blogging but once I'm settled in my new routine I'll be back with a vengeance.
I went to the hairdressers the Thursday before last and had loads of hair cut off. I can't tell you how good it feels to have had multiple inches cut off the ends of my hair. Usually I suffer a slight phobia of the hairdressing chair and just have a smidgen of hair trimmed off the ends, so I thought that my recent visit would be traumatic. However it wasn't in the slightest. I was so ready to lose those lank split ends!
Not only does it feel and look healthier but it's so much easier to style, much quicker to style and waves/curls keep their hold, something that didn't happen with my long hair as it was too heavy to hold any style.
I had a few long layers cut in too but nothing too drastic. Just enough to get a bit more movement.
Colour wise I had a full head of highlights which I'm hoping to build up to a blonder colour over time. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it but it has definitely grown on me. It's quite hard to capture the true colour of it in a photograph but in real life it looks "bronde" which I suppose is a nice compromise between my natural colour and being blonde. I'm not sure if I will end up as blonde as I used to be but next time I may lighten it up a little bit more.
I hope you like it! I am really happy with it and feel much prettier and "put together" than I did before. I suppose after 6 years of being blonde and spending a fortune on colouring and cutting I was enjoying having my natural colour back and just getting a wet trim once in a blue moon, but this turned into 3 years of just being plain lazy and having a mop of hair that I didn't particularly like!
Also I have been getting great results with the salon shampoo, conditioner and blow dry cream I bought so I'll have to share those when I get the chance.
