Thanks for all of your suggestions last week! I arrived at the salon last Thursday morning ever-so-slightly resembling Monica in Barbados (apologies if you've never seen this episode of Friends!!) due to the fine drizzle outside but having a much clearer idea in my head of what I wanted.
This was only my second visit to The Hair Warehouse in Dundee but in just those two sessions, I feel like my stylist Kirsty actually understands what I'm trying to achieve - even when I'm not entirely sure myself!!
I explained that the current colour of my hair just wasn't doing it for me & showed her my (many) Pinterest photos of what I liked. She explained what was achievable & she was honest enough to suggest that being that much lighter wouldn't suit my skin tone.
So between us, we decided to take my hair slightly darker again but quite golden with blonde ombré underneath & round my face......and I love it!! I feel so much more like me again being darker but the ombré really lifts it & stops it from being too much of a block colour.
Here's a couple of very grainy (ie crappy!) phone photos!
After cutting some more layers in & then rough drying, Kirsty curled my hair using Cloud Nine straighteners (which, in her opinion, are better than GHDs btw!) I love this soft curled effect but annoyingly, I can only do one side of my hair well myself - anyone else have this problem?! You can see a photo of the back of my hair on their website.
As expected, my hair is feeling a wee bit parched at the moment after all the abuse I've put it through since July but I'm using hair products containing argan oil which is leaving it feeling fantastic!
So that's me feeling more like me again! And for those of you who don't get the 'Monica' reference, here you are......!!
