NEW HAIR (STAGE 2, FROM BROWN TO BLONDE)


About 4 weeks after I dyed my hair brown I regretted it, everyone told me I looked tonnes older and it didn't really suit my pale skin. Plus my mum had told me a while ago I looked like Fizz from Coronation Street...
So after using something similar to Color b4 (video here) I trotted to my hairdresser of six years and asked her to make me blonde again.

I ended up going from brown to blonde in two sessions, on my first visit I had balyage applied to cool down the warm tones and I was left with something similar to the before snap. Because I'm ridiculous and can't leave my hair alone, I used one of the L'oreal Feria Ombre kits afterwards which gave me a super warm ombre - alas, the "before" snap.

2 months later, aka yesterday, I went back to the salon for a full head of highlights to tone down the warmth and take me back to an 'ashy' blonde - and it worked! My hairdresser used Olaplex on my hair to reduce the damage and I'm oh-so-happy with the result.

The next stage in my quest for good hair is extensions, so if anyone has had any experience with them (bonded or micro rings), I'd love to hear about your experience!

  6. You look gorgeous blonde! I can so relate to your story. Last time I went to my stylist, I didn't get any highlights. I so regret it. I have, by the way, had extensions - about 15 years ago. I got the micro rings. They looked really natural, and they weren't so hard on my very fine Scandinavian hair. I recommend them - with high quality hair. Have fun!
