I look at this picture of Elizabeth Olsen and think, ‘she’s pale like me! Maybe I could pull off that blonde.. but the picture below tells a different story. I look paper white! I’m sure I’m not quite so ghostly in real life but you may have noticed my new hair colour. You can see the shade I was here. I used ColourB4 to take out as much of the dark colour as possible. It left me with warm brown tones. I have an appointment at the salon tomorrow and my intention is to have about an inch chopped off the bottom, all of my layers trimmed and… as many highlights as they can cram on my head!
I’ve been brunette for more than a year now which someone pointed out to me is probably the first time in a decade and I’m bored! I’ve been contemplating a change for a while and I thought, why not in time for our honeymoon in Vegas? I love experimenting with new makeup when I change my hair colour but it takes a while to find the right combos so I wanted a little while to get used to it before we go away. They also say that there’s only 2 weeks between a bad haircut and a good one.. well we fly 2 weeks on Sunday so fingers crossed I’m loving my new honey coloured mane by then!
I wanted to share my plan ahead of the appointment to prepare you for the ‘reveal’ post and inevitable YouTube video that will follow. Annoyingly I did just buy a new set of chocolate brown hair extensions which I mentioned in another post. I never showed you them because they weren’t a perfect match and now they obviously won’t be. I’m sure I will be brunette again at some point so I will keep them until then. If you want to see them I uploaded a video wearing them (link)
