As you may know I recently went from red-head back to blond. I've given sneak-peaks of my hair already on the blog - at the recent Aussie event it was at a halfway stage (still a bit more coppery in tone) then in my Tatty Devine post you can see the see the ends poking into the picture. But here is the finished article - it is official I am blond again.
In the end I went to two different hairdressers and spent about 7 hours sitting in their chairs with my head covered in nasty smelling bleach. I also bought the expensive shampoo and conditioner that they always try and sell you as I was so worried I would have done a ton of damage to my hair. In actual fact it feels still in quiet nice condition. I have been using more conditioning products than ever though, and still I am noticing that my hair doesn't get greasy as quirky as it used to, so it must have dried out even more.
The colour is a mix of very light ash blond and a warmer champagne colour. I love it. And it feels fantastic to be blond again - it is my natural colour after all (though the shade at the moment is a bit lighter). While I have no regrets about going red, as I had previously never one anything with my hair, I feel more myself now I am back to blond.
In other exciting news (well exciting for me at least); I won a competition! I never win things so I was overjoyed, especially as it was on one of my favourite ever blogs - and defiantly daily-must-read, Llymlrs. I think I have a bit of a girl-crush on the lovely Lily of Llymlrs. She has such a cute style and always looks so pretty. Anyway, she ran a giveaway with Paola Loves To Shop, an amazing independent sunglasses shop and I won. I got to pick any pair from the site!
I went for the Alex the Cat in tortoise shell as I just love the pointy ends. The reminded me of those Alexander Wang glasses. My Wang-obsession is much documented on this blog, so I am delighted to have these look-a-likes.
If you like sunglasses (and who doesn't) I really recommend checking out Paola Loves To Shop as their styles are gorgeous. They also have a Sunglasses of the month club that you can join and they will send you a new secret pair of glasses each month! I think this is such a cute idea - more shops should run this kind of deal!
So...what do you think of the hair?
