With spring supposedly here (you wouldn't be able to tell here in Scotland, it has poured down today!) I thought that I would get my hair done. I haven't had my hair done for around 6 months so it was well overdue! I wanted some pretty highlights to freshen up my dull, lacklustre hair.
I love balayage highlights and took to Pinterest to find some inspiration; well I would need days and days to scroll through all of the amazing images of perfect balayage highlighted hair on there! Blonde, honey, caramel, chocolate, espresso, copper, butterscotch....you name it!
There was one image that I really liked and decided this was the sort of thing I wanted so I saved it to my iPhone and took it with me on my trip to the hairdressers.
For someone who loves beauty I really don't like getting my hair done, but after leaving it for so long I was desperate to have new hair and to feel refreshed. I showed the image to my lovely hairdresser Hazell and she worked her magic.
3 and half hours later my hair was completely transformed with gorgeous golden caramel balayage highlights. I kept most of my length as I am still trying to let it grow, but had a quick trim to keep it looking healthy. Hazell also gave me a beautiful blow dry with big bouncy curls created ghd brushes.
I am in love with my new hair. There is definitely something about having your hair done that just makes you feel so good and refreshed. Coco Chanel once said 'a women who cuts her hair is about to change her life', well maybe that doesn't quite apply to me but you get the jist!
Above is a before and after of my hair. It's really nice to see a before and after to see the difference. Along with new hair always comes a heightened interest in hair care products so no doubt I will be on the lookout for some new products to change up my routine.
If anyone has any good recommendations for hair products for coloured hair then let me know below :)
