My New Hair

Sorry for my slackness recently in updating this blog.  It has almost been a week... I've just slapped myself on the wrist and told myself not to leave it that long again.

I'm sure you're all very interested to know what happened with my hair.  I booked an appointment at Essensuals in Guildford.  Now you might find it a little strange that I live in London and took a train for 40 minutes to the suburbs just to get my hair done but this hairdressers has saved me from a variety of mistakes in the past and so I knew I was in safe hands.  

I donned my prettiest pink dress, and off I went.


(Excuse the, quite frankly, RANK hair but I was about to get it done so didn't feel the need to go all out)

I arrived and explained that I wanted to be blonde again, that I missed it and had to have it back.  I also opted for a little trim as, let's be honest, I haven't had a haircut by a professional hairdresser since The Millennium.

My original hair:

The result:

(shamelessly taking selfies on the train home - creep. Also excuse my no make-up face and rather perplexed/indifferent expression)

It is certainly no where near as blonde as I had originally intended but I'm going on holiday soon and it'll definitely lighten up in the sun.  It also looks so much darker in photos (with flash) than in natural light which is quite weird:

But all in all I am happy with the result.

What do you guys think?!

  1. I Loveeee your blonde hair :)
    I remember when I dyed mine dark then went back blonde, best feeling ever :)

    Look gorgeous sweet ;) xxxxx

  2. Love your dress and your blonde hair :)

    1. Thanks Stefani..not sure I'd classify it as blonde yet?! I used to be soo blonde it's hard to think of this of blonde.

  3. Your hair looks great! i cant wait for mine to grow out, i had a moment of madness and let my friends cut my hair, now i cant wait for it to grow back!


    1. Thanks. Eek that happened to me (I still remember the dark, dark day) in November 2008. My hair has never been the same since :( It just needed a trim and the girl took SO much off it. Since then I've only ever trimmed my own hair until the post above, obviously :) Thanks for commenting! And PS Biotin supplements are really good for hair growth!

  4. your hair looks so nice x

  5. I love this pink dress!
    And it is a great hair color, I wish to have it :/

    1. Thank you :) I'm glad you like it. It's not 100% what I want but I'm slowly getting there.

  6. Ahhh, I love it, honey!!! You look so great! You always do, but this color suits you so well! :) It's very natural, which I adore, but you're blonde enough (we both have to be haha :))
    I just love it! And you're the prettiest thing ever, please don't tell me that's a no make up look :D


  7. The pink dress is cute ♡
