Transformation Thursday

A lot has changed these past few months, I cut my hair into a stylish pixie cut and joined the Strands Hair Lounge Team as a Hairstylist and Make Up Artist.

Last week my fabulous boss Adelle transformed my hair from box dyed brunette to a rose gold metallic wonder and I LOVE IT ❤

The process:
Step 1. bleach the ends where the box dye remained
Step 2. Bleach my natural roots
Step 3. Rinse and Shampoo
Step 4. Apply Rose Gold Wella Olaplex
Step 5. Rinse, Double Shampoo and Condition
Step 6. Trim and Reshape
Step 7. Add Styling Mousse
Step 6. Blowdry with a round brush for volume
Step 7. Styling Wax and Hairspray

I have never been more obsessed with a hair colour than this one. It changes depending on the light I am and looks so healthy and shiny.

Who else wants Unicorn Hair?

Thank you, Adelle!


Braving Brunette

Saturday 17th June 2017 – returning to the dark side.

A few weeks ago I woke up and thought I need to dye my hair – I do have these impulsive moments and I usually end up on some spontaneous trip somewhere last time it was for a piercing.

I decided I wanted to return to the dark side after a very long hiatus from the hair dye. I had spent the past 3 years maybe a bit longer letting my hair be healthy and dye free and grow without as much damage. A couple of months before this thought I had another spontaneous moment and got the right side of my hair shaved into an undercut! (Britney Spears moment – pre-break up).

So on this thought of going brunette I messaged my hair dresser, Michelle, of about 20 years and asked whether it was a good plan and she encouraged me to go buy the dark brown casting creme gloss by L’oreal as it’s semi-permanent and it keeps your hair in good condition. Whilst in Newcastle I popped into Asda and it was on offer £5 per box I needed two.

I returned to Leeds after the weekend away and ensured I completed a patch test ready for the next weekend when I was heading back home to Grimsby/Cleethorpes. Saturday 17th I rocked up at 4pm to my hairdressers; boiling in the heatwave, boxes in hand and she applied it for me (if i did it myself it would be patchy -i’m not good). 1 hour later the transformation was complete!

The colour had taken better than either of us imagined it would have done and it was pretty much black – being-semi permanent it is now a super dark brown after a few washes.  But I love the change. My blue eyes stand out more with dark hair. I couldn’t recommend the L’oreal Casting Creme Gloss more, my hair is still in amazing condition and although the colour went black at first it is now a dark brown as stated on the box!
