I’ve currently got a bad case of wanting to change up my hair, and have a few weeks before I’m going to the hairdressers, this can be dangerous as when I want to change my hair, I feel the desperate need to do it myself in that moment, and end up doing something crazy (hello purple ombre which faded to green). I’m trying to grow and look after my hair as much as possible, and as much as I want to go back to my Uni days of streaks of bright pink hair and bleaching my hair frequently, it really did knacker my dark natural brown locks.
Currently I have my hair quite a natural brown, highlighted through the underneath with blonde which was left on for a short time just so my hair didn’t look so flat in colour – and you didn’t see roots growing through as I don’t have time for the maintenance every six weeks.
My hairdresser is my future sister in law, and I completely trust her to do her own thing at times when I know I want a change but don’t know what, or for her to tell me when no, doing that to your hair is not a good idea.
I’m a little torn as to what to do with my hair as I’m crushing over lots of different colors which are rapidly different!
Hair Crush 1: Shay Mitchell
Obsession with her hair has formed off the back of constantly watching Pretty Little Liars. When I say hair crush, what I mean is that I’m basically in love with her, Emily’s my least favourite character in pretty little liars, but she’s completely stunning. If my sister in law could give me a body and face transplant as well, I’d be picking to look like Shay.
This is a more toned up version of what I already have, it’s not quite a true ombre as it still looks highlighted with darker shades still running through.
Hair Crush 2: Gemsmaquillage / Gemma Tomlinson
When one of my long time fave bloggers/youtubers Gemsmaquillage started dying her hair red in the autumn, I was resisting the urge to pull out my old Directions and Crazy Colours and join in the fun. This deep plum cherry red, which when catching in the light is more vibrant, is my ultimate hair dream. My problem, red is just gone out of my hair in 3 weeks without bleach, no matter what I’ve tried, and when I’ve bleached it first – i just then can’t get rid of the thing when I want it to go. I’d love to be able to do this, but I just know that I won’t be able to keep up with the maintenance that my hair requires.
Gemma also has a whole pinterest board dedicated to red hair, if these haven’t made you think about changing others will! (Board here)
Hair Crush 3: Beyonce
I’m not keen on beyonce’s current weave situation, she looks like she could do with a trim as it’s looking a bit straggly to me. But the darker honey blonde is lush, this is just about as blonde as I could maybe get away with all over, but unsure as to whether it will damage my hair too much or not! I know if my sister in law was picking, she’s probably choose this as she always asks be if I want to go blonde again and I think she’s itching to do it!
And whilst I’ve been growing it for a couple of years now, everything about this picture tempts me to have a chop.
Do you get tempted to spontaneously change your hair, please say I’m not the only one!
What colour do you think I should go for?
