I initially went in requesting a VERY light caramel brown colour, which the stylist was happy to do, but after careful consideration I decided to stick to the brown tone I already had, but to make it brighter as it would be easier to manage when growing my hair. We also decided that this was the colour best suited for my complexion and eye colour.
Surprisingly my hair feels so much longer even though I had loads cut off, is that even possible?
Most of the photos were taken with flash, in reality the colour is much lighter and more of a golden brown, it looks SO beautiful under natural light. The photo's below were taken without flash, it gives you a good idea of the exact shade.
I can also sweep my hair to the side, which gives me a long side fringe...
Or, I can part it from the middle which gives me lovely layers that frame my face.
The salon is very sleek, classy and modern. My stylist coincidentally was a Turkish lady called 'Ayten', she was SO lovely, and made me feel very comfortable and relaxed as I was super nervous and scared. She made me aware that this is how she treats everybody and that I wasn't getting any extra special treatment. The great thing about Aveda is all their hair dyes are 'natural', they keep a record of whatever they use on their system, so it's easy the next time you pop in. Contact number for the salon is: 0207 723 5028 Cut and blowdry starts from £45.00.
So. what do you all think of my new hair? :) It's not a drastic change, but I LOVE it! Clearly I'm going to be blogging about hair more often.
