For many many years I have remained firm with the same colour highlights, same cut, same products same everything. I suppose I have been the same with many things like make up and clothes too.
Over the last few months I had given up! yep that’s right I washed it, brushed it and I slapped it up so I didn’t have to tackle it! and on the 3 occasions since June I have attempted to do something with it Its still really not looked good.
I was beginning to feel down and sad, OK not all this can be lumped on my hair however having crap hair is really depressing!
Maybe its just me but just half an inch longer or the root showing through can make all the difference to how I felt about my hair… I know for many including myself, hair makes a massive difference about how you feel about your own appearance even if its only you that notices.
This is where my amazing hairdresser stepped in! after a flurry of Facebook messages about the fact I was struggling to keep up funding the double foil highlights of old and I was scared to make the move to shelf box colour (that I used many years, many moons ago) it turns out he was to be my saviour!
When Carl arrived this week he had a master plan, effectively extending the time frame In which I would need to have it coloured and doing himself out of hard cash in the process ……… What a hero!
So when he arrived he had his work cut out for him, armed with half a dozen images of what I liked and no real idea of what I wanted I let him have free rein, he chopped and coloured like a good un!
And ta da …..
The first night It was done I was swinging between elated and anxious over if I had done the wrong thing but after I shared my picture with some lovely tweeters and received some lovely comments so I needn’t of worried!!
Even on Friday when I took Joshua to nursery the compliments kept on coming!!…… it seems I have cheek bones .. and I look younger …. and slimmer!
What took me so long to make the change? I had known all this I would of done it ages ago!!
