A Blonde Ambition

As regular as clockwork, every six weeks I skip up to my hairdressers, dangle my hair in front of her, put on my very best puppy-dog eyes and profess the immortal words…”make me look pretty!”

My hair colour could be likened to a leafy tree, ever changing colour throughout the seasons. I have made my merry way through a kaleidoscope of colours recently, from black, purple, red, auburn and peroxide blonde. 

Amazingly, I still have some hair left and I am currently flirting with a blonde/brown compromise, with a peroxide blonde ambition akin to Pixie Lott’s mane being suppressed deep inside…

So, my ever patient hairdresser friend decided to lighten up my roots which are naturally a dull blah brown and then scatter some blonde highlights randomly throughout my coiffure.

So, with the bleach working it’s magic, I settled down with a cup of tea to scour the trashy mags until the end result was unveiled.

Ta da…

I love it! It has lightened and brighten my whole aura radiantly and I adore the addition blonde, but the fact that the light brown base has been maintained. It may seem even slightly gingery, which I whole-heartedly embrace!

I asked for some volume as I am so over flat, poker straight hair so she worked some magic with the hair dryer and several barrel brushes…

I am content with my coiffure and it shall keep my pacified until my next venture to the hairdressers.
