…well sort of! For a while I had been toying with the idea of going darker with my hair. I always perv on Lauren Conrad’s gorgeous tousled blonde biscuity locks and after watching the last two series of The Secret Diary of a Call Girl I became fixated with Billie Piper and her hair colour, so my decision was made!
Of course you can’t just walk into a hairdressers with an idea in your head, you need to do some serious homework/Pintersting/obsessively collecting pictures every time a new blonde actress, model, blogger appears on your Twitter or Instagram feed. So during this ‘research phase’ I collated at least 25 pictures of hair colours and styles and here are just some of the pictures I took to my hairdresser for inspiration.
I still travel all the way home to Scunthorpe so see my wonderful hairdresser, Amy, partly because she has cut my hair for 3 years and she just knows what I mean and partly because I ain’t gonna be finding someone to cut and colour my hair in the centre of Leeds for less than £90!
And here is the transformation (sorry about the Instagram selfies).
It’s faded quite a bit already as my hair was so porous from all the bleach, but I think the more I get it done the better it will stick and best of all my roots look so much more discreet growing back!
