Anyone who read my last post(here)will know that I recently attended an event for hair extensions. After having uber long, brunette, curly hair, even for a few hours, it got me thinking about trying something new. My hair's been variations on ombré for the past few years, with me going blonder and blonder in the past few visits. I'm lazy when it comes to my hair: for work during the week its normally in a pony tail, and at weekend is either down and straight or salt sprayed the hell out of for beachy waves. Ombré is easy for me, as it takes no upkeep, meaning that I can go to the hairdressers as often or as little as I want, and seeing as I like the dirty, blonde, grown out look, this suits me down to the ground.
That said, this time I want to try something different. I'm quite an emotional dresser/hair styler etc, and seem to switch things up either when things are going wrong to cheer me up, or when things are good to make a statement to myself. I've spoken many times on here about having a very up and down 18 months: losing one of my best friends to suicide and generally being let down by others, and having crisis of confidence and not feeling very good about myself as a result. In the last few weeks a person who I cared about massively and who hasn't been in my life for a few months, re appeared. After a bumpy start, I thought we could sort our friendship out, only for it to blow up in my face again. Do any of you have people in your life that you love the bones of, but you just rub each other up the wrong way? That's me and this person. He's mega, one of the best people I know when he's on form; we're just like oil and water; even though we get each other inside out, we're not good for each other, despite trying everything to be mates over the past 18 months.
Anyway, back to hair! This has made me want to try something totally different, to put the past 18 months behind me, and stop pining for things that I can't fix, and focus on the good things that I have in my life, cos there's a lot of them!. I'd love a short choppy Caroline Flack esque bob, but with the thinnest hair on the planet, this will not work, so colour is prob my only option. I'm thinking an ashy blonde but with some white tones thrown in, but having it all over with dirty roots. Maybe have some peachy undertones in the bottom. This hair style is a statement to myself, that things can change for the better, onwards and upwards and all that!
As the bracelet that I bought myself this week says "Be Brave & Keep Going". The last 18 months have taught me I'm stronger than I think, and its now all about looking forward, starting with a new do tomorrow!
Here's my current inspo, what do you think? However, I've just seen Sienna Millers new red hair and am now thinking the Emma Stone/Sienna look may be the way forward!!
I'd love your thoughts!!
