Over the years it got darker, leading to some highlighting....to varying degrees of success. I will never forgive my mum for making me look like a badger when I told her "Don't forget the roots" and she took that to mean paint a bliming line of bleach straight down my parting! Jeesh....still that wasn't as bad as the "Zoe fringe" my friends tried to cut for me. I wanted to look like this: (The one on the left)
Well, I don't think I HAVE a photo of what I really looked like, but lets just say there was a triangular (uneven) "parting" and a diagonal line of hair across my forehead. Took bloody years to grow out properly. You think this ones bad....it was MUCH worse!
Anway, so recently I was getting pretty bored of my ashy/blondey/light brown/Crayola doesnt make this colour! hair and thought about going for a whole new look. - Brunette!
|An example of GOOD highlights!|
Being kinda nervous and given my hair diabolicals in the past, I decided to be sensible about this one. I went to Rush and made an appointment with the Directer, Hayley, on the recommendation of my sister.
Having fine curly hair has always been a bit of an issue for me finding a hairdresser. Hairdressers with straight hair get freaked out - no idea how to deal with it. I even had one who straightened it, only to put curls back in with GHD's...I ask you?! But Hayley was awesome. With a head full of curls herself and a friendly and laid back nature I knew I was in safe hands.
And although it may have cost me a small fortune I am SO pleased with the results! And it's worth it - a girl needs to spoil herself sometimes right? And nothing makes a gal happier than knowing she has AWESOME hair!
Needless to say I will be returning to Rush in future. And if any readers with curly hair go in there - tell them you were recommended by me and you get 50% off! (Leave me your email if you need to know my full name)
