I went back to Liverpool at the weekend to stay with my parents. No visit back to Liverpool would be complete without a trip to the hairdressers. I’ve been going to the same hairdresser for about 15 years now and I’m really weird about it all.
I’ve been going to the same hairdresser for about 15 years now and I’m really weird about it all. It’s partly down to my social awkwardness and the small talk aspect. You’d think after 33 years on this earth that I’d know how to do that now but I’m still awful at starting a conversation with someone. It’s also partly down to not knowing what I want half the time, sometimes I’ll have a picture of something I like but sometimes I’ll just have an idea in my head that I don’t know how to explain and if there are questions about the picture beyond where I want my parting or how short I want my fringe I’m baffled. I feel like shouting “you’re the expert, I want you to take this image or idea and create something that will suit me and is achievable!” You know what that is, I clearly don’t.
Woah, sorry about that rant but I guess that proves why I end up going back to Katy time and time again. She always manages to work some magic based on my half baked ideas or suggests something different that I end up loving.
This time though all I knew was that I was bored with my ombre blonde and I wanted my roots bleached up to match the ends. Nice and bright for the summer even if the weather doesn’t agree. While I was there though I mentioned I was a bit bored with my hair but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. IT was a bit of a passing comment and I was thinking more about my next visit and doing something a bit different then. She disappeared and said she’d found some pink in the back and did I want her to stick a few flashes through? The answer was a resounding yes.
I love the finished look. It’s pretty subtle and gives my hair a kind of baby pink look until you look at it closer and see the streaks are actually a really vibrant pink. Considering the colours that my hair has been this is totally toned down for me but I love it.
Also, sorry for the shoddy photography. It’s hard to get a photo of the back of your own head!
