I've Gone To The Blonde Side


Today's post is slightly random - it's all about my hair. If you can't think of anything more boring than listening to my latest hair woes, then you may want to press the little red X around about now! If you're a regular reader of my blog, you may know that a few months ago I decided I wanted to inject some blonde into my life without going the whole hog, so I opted for a subtle dip dye. After that I then added a few random stranded blonde highlights using Bleach London's Beach Lights kit which came out perfectly.
Picture the scene. I'm having a bad hair day, I've got a Bleach London kit in front of me - what do I decide to do? Without even thinking twice, I've plastered my hair in the Beach Lights kit. Seeing as I had used this kit before and I'd had a good result, I had no worries at all. Yet I should have worried, as what I was left with was dark orange and bleach blonde patches, mixed in with my natural hair colour of brown - oops. That was not the look I was aiming for eh?! I'm not going to blame the kit itself as it could well have been down to my application or anything else - but in a nutshell, I learnt not to DIY brunette hair to blonde at home.
Luckily, I was soon off to the hairdressers to get the mess sorted out sharpish! It took a total of three hours to have a full head of highlights - I had forgotten just how long highlights can take after being a blonde for around three years previously. The result was a light blonde/caramel shade which is even lighter than I was expecting. I'm really pleased with the result and am now hoping to go a shade lighter next time I have my highlights done - I better take a good book this time!
What's your favourite hair colour to have? Do you prefer your natural colour or a dye and highlights? x
