Hairspiration 2.0

IMG_1213 copySo back in January I had what can only be described as a life changing hair appointment at Russell Eaton Salon in Leeds. Many will scoff and I am joking to a POINT but if you’ve ever been at that ‘omg my hair is falling out in clumps’ stage you will totally understand the power you hair can have on your self esteem. I have always experimented with mine and so when it all goes wrong I can never feel too bad about it because I know the risks and ultimately hair grows. It’s not the end of the world.. it just feels like it. I have had Great Lengths Keratin Bonded extensions in my hair for 4 months now and if money were no object I would have them for the rest of my life, they are ridiculously low maintenance and ideal for someone like me who craves change constantly.. and instantly. Unfortunately I have to be realistic and I can’t justify the outlay all the time so with tomorrow’s appointment in mind I have been scouring in the internet for hairspiration once they’re removed and my real hair needs a good cut.

Given that bleach was the bad guy that ruined my hair in the first place and I can see healthy growth at my roots for the first time in YEARS I want to try and stay closer to my natural mousey brown colour. The problem is that short and mousey often spells BLAH so darker tones may be on the cards to keep it more interesting. I love Olivia Wilde’s super dark roots with softer sections but since the salon can’t fit me in for a colour tomorrow I may resort to a semi permanent all over colour while I wait for that appointment.. hoping to pick up something super temporary, any suggestions welcome

I have no idea what I’ll be left with when the extensions come out so I have some styles in mind depending on what we have to work with. The longer the better preferably but job one is something low maintenance that blends the shorter broken sections. We shall see but in the meantime I thought I’d share my inspiration(s)

    I love picking out a new hairstyle! I think something like Lucy Hale’s cut would look amazing on you.

      yes, I totally love her hair! I’ve ended up with more hair than I expected after the extensions have come out so I’m not sure what to do with it now but I’m tempted to cut it to a bob again.. always between chopping it and growing it
