I took a trip to the hairdressers on Wednesday for a bit of a change... I've been trying to get my hair blonder but as most of us find out, trying to DIY it doesn't work and you end up with green tinged or orange hair. (remember that Tracey Beaker episode!?) The only way you can go proper blonde well, is to take a trip to the hairdressers. I went to a local salon called Capelli's (which is in Stony Stratford for any one who's in Buckinghamshire!) as they had a special deal on for a cut, colour and blow dry for £49 which was an amazing price seeing as colour can be way above that.
I have quite dark hair naturally, it's kind of a mousey colour so they needed to lift the colour quite a lot. The colourist used an ash blonde all over my hair then put brighter highlights in the T-section at the top of my head. They cut it exactly how I wanted it too. As I'm trying to grow it a bit, I hate having too much cut off but she literally just cut off the dead ends. (which were quite dead, I haven't had it cut since Christmas OOPS) So I was left with a lovely shape to it, long layers and much healthier looking hair!
I'm so pleased with everything! I was initially quite terrified of how bright it was when I came out of the salon, but after a few washes and using John Freida's toning shampoo on it, it's softened and different tones are beginning to come out in it. I keep walking past mirrors and not recognising myself as its a lot blonder than I've ever been before, but I love it! I'd definitely go back to Capellis, they were so lovely and listened to exactly what I wanted. I'd never actually been to hair salon before as we've always used mobile hairdressers so it was a real experience for me ha!
