I am really not prepared so the rest of the day will be spent frantically packing and then panicking thinking Ive forgot things ha.
Tonight i need to colour my hair as its looking a bit dull and the dark roots are not a good look. I thought I'd have a look back at the various stages of my hair to see how they compare:
Becoming a teenager and the cult of the perm lured me into this shaggy dog perm with a fringe. My preferred style for everyday was the sides pulled up in a high pony tail. I don't know my exact age here but I'm probably about 14.
This next photo is one that i really hated at the time but now i just look back and smile. I don't know what happened, a mix of puppy fat, extra pale foundation and a nearly black hair colour left me looking like this :) I was about 16/17 going on 30.
Fast forward about 10 years and my hair was longish black with extensions and a few white blond additions ( I don't know why i thought this was a good look but i did )
A few years on and i had my youngest son. I decided i wanted a drastic change so went for highlights and lots of them. I didn't keep this for long as it just looked ashy as you can see from the photo.
However it didn't put me off colour and i just had different warmer colours put through my hair and a long sweeping fringe.
Then i grew the fringe out and wore clip in extensions for a while as i had a fair amount of hair cut off due to damage from all that colour.
By the time i got married i decided to go back dark with a sweeping fringe and i also wore clip in extensions which i curled in with my hair. I just felt more like me this colour and style.
Not long after i went for the full on fringe look. I quite like my hair like this but it was a pain to have to style my fringe every morning and have it cut every 3 weeks.
So i clipped my fringe back while i grew it out to a long sweeping side fringe that i could easily tie back when i wanted.
Then i went to the salon and had it coloured Red. I really love this colour now and i think it is much warmer looking than any of the other colours that i have had. I also look after my hair so much more these days which I'm sure helps keep it shiny.
Unfortunately for me the upkeep of the roots every 6 weeks is just too much for me so I'm having a go at colouring it myself. Eeeek.
I have to say i love my hair this colour and i cant imagine going back dark now. My next mission is to get some great hair extensions that clip in and colour them to match my hair. I will probably use these when my hair is straight and needs a bit of thickness adding.
Hope you all have a great week and i cant wait to catch up when i get back xx
