golden girl

Farewell faded red and frazzled ends, hello honey tones and happy hair.

My hair has been long overdue some TLC. It is hard to believe that a few months ago I had vibrant Rihanna red hair, but we all know red is a hardship to maintain and over time, and thanks to some Egyptian sun, it had pretty much become a distant memory. However I was left with patchy colour, desperately dry ends and generally a barnet crying out for some love and attention.

I skipped along to my hairdressers this week, my patient, lovely hairdresser who has seen me all colours under the sun. She did a whole head of highlights, weaving three different colours through my hair. We knew that, realistically, my hair wouldn’t withstand the blondest of blonde, so we opted for warm honey and caramel shades. A halo of warm, golden loveliness! I also had about 3 inches hacked off which was totally necessary, although I was really keen to hold onto the length of my fringe through the front. Colours and cut agreed, she set to work whilst I reclined and revelled in some trashy gossip and the sweet aroma of Aveda products. Three hours, a multitude of magazines and a jittery amount of tea later, I was done! I am so happy with the end result and my hair has never felt so swishable.
I am once again a golden girl!

    I kind of feel like I'm repeating all the above but your hair looks so pretty and fresh! The colour suits you lots and I'm sure it will be a little easier to look after than the bright red! Xxx

    your hair is SUCH a lovely colour, so natural and eye catching too.
    im currently blonde and have a craving to go chestnut but the fear of not liking it and damaging it to go back worries me argh! xx
