I've said it once and I will say it again - having my hair done always cheers me up. I've been in a bit of a slump the last few months. Scratch that, the last year has been one big slump. Of course it hasn't all been so bad but alas the negative aspects have played a big part of my year.
After a stressful and ill couple of weeks, it was time to get that mop on my head sorted. Gain some control in my life again via my delightfully messy hair.
As a lot of you know, I used to dye my hair myself (and when I say myself I mean I got my mum to do it) but it all went to pot when the brand I was using changed the formula. So I have been entrusting my colour to my hairdresser, Mathew Watt.
I don't think I could look past going to him anymore. My hair is like my baby. I'm not a massive fan of my face and my personality isn't exactly shining, so my hair is my favourite thing about me. I always know I am in safe hands when I head to Mathew's salon. I don't think I could let anyone touch my hair ever again.
Since I was feeling a little bleugh (scientific term), I felt I needed something a little different done to my hair. After rambling for 30 minutes about this to Mathew, we came up with a little plan. I had originally wanted blonde put it in the ends but after years of dying my my hair red/orange, that was never going to work out well.
So, for a little freshen up and change, Mathew used my normal paprika like colour for the top of my head and a mixture of copper and yellow for the ends.
As soon as I saw the finished product I was in love. My hair looks like a fiery volcano and you know what, it has brought the fire back in me!
Of course, I had to document this new do with a couple of OOTD style photos (taken on my lunch break at work....)
Coat - Elle @ TK Maxx
Skirt - Vintage
Top - Not got a clue....
Boots - Everything5Pounds
Necklace - Primark
I decided to compliment my new fiery hair, I would go for a grungy 90s look. This is kind of my go to look these days. It is comfy, fairly stylish and low maintenance. I also can never resist pairing up chunky boots with nice skirts.
It is funny how a new hair do can change how you feel inside. I've mentioned it before in a previous post that it may seem like such a shallow thing to say but it really does make a difference.
Till the next time!
